Arnold Farmer has been a handful for opposing offensive linemen to contain this season. The junior defensive tackle anchors No. 13 Poly's defense and has helped the Engineers (8-2) qualify for the Class 2A North playoffs for the first time since 2004. He'll have to continue his great play if the team hopes to upset Eastern Tech (10-0) on Friday night at 7 at CCBC-Essex. Farmer has played varsity since he was a freshman - his first year playing football - and now is a captain. He can bench-press 185 pounds 30 times and projects to be one of Baltimore's best defensive linemen next year.

The Ravens officially began their off-season conditioning program yesterday at the team's new, $500,000 field house, and the reviews were positive across the board.For starters, the 12,500-square-foot facility, which was constructed in less than one month on the team's artificial turf practice field in Owings Mills, gives the players space they never enjoyed in the cramped weight room of their main facility there."You were always worried about somebody stumbling into somebody else who was lifting and getting injured," Ravens strength coach Jerry Simmons said.

When Yankee first baseman Mark Teixeira takes the field Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles, he's returning home and entering enemy territory.  A Mt. St. Joseph graduate, Teixeira, 31, is a native of Severna Park. But his hometown roots only served to anger fans when he signed with New York, a team O's fans dub the "evil empire. " In an interview with b , Teixeira talked about his acrimonious relationship with local fans, the best place to get a crab cake and his charity work.  You've been involved with charities in Atlanta, Baltimore and now East Harlem, where you pledged $1 million to help Harlem RBI, a baseball and academics program, build a facility for DREAM Charter School.

Theories abound as to why Rogers Barnes is a late bloomer - not making a name for himself in either football or basketball until this, his senior year. But there is no doubt that Barnes is one of the most dynamic basketball players in the county this season and a key reason the Hawks (11-2 overall and in the Howard County league) are one of the county's top teams. He leads River Hill in scoring with a 14.8 average, and his defensive skills are equally impressive. Barnes normally guards the opposing team's top scoring threat and averages a team-high six steals.

SCN athletes have won seven Olympic gold medals and 48 in world and European master-class contests.And somewhat incongruously at a club renowned for runners and jumpers, most of the gold was won by canoe and kayak racers.

When 104 Arundel High students began to congregate on the school's tennis courts shortly before 9 a.m. last Wednesday, it looked like the start of a day of summer camp. Most of the students wore shorts and tank tops, appearing a bit sluggish at what many teenagers consider an early hour for the summer. But it became clear they weren't about to play kickball when three Arundel coaches broke them into 20 lines stretching across the court. In the next 65 minutes, the student-athletes - most of whom play football, but including girls from the field hockey, track and basketball teams - went through a series of jogging warm-up exercises, nine 100-yard sprints and stops at five stations in a steamy weight room.

OK, how nutty is this season going? Consider outfielder-infielder Steve Pearce, whom the Orioles bought for minimal cash from the New York Yankees on June 2. He exercised an opt-out clause in his contract. Had he stayed withTriple-AScranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pearce would be in the middle of a 13-game road trip. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team has been playing basically on the road all year, using the Rochester park as a home field at times because their park is under construction.
