Western's basketball team has knocked off Catonsville in the regional playoffs four times in the past five years. Although the scores don't look that close, these wins never come easily for the Doves. Wednesday night, the No. 12 Comets led into the second quarter and stayed close into the third quarter before No. 10 Western's depth of talent and uptempo game took over en route to a 57-35 victory in a Class 3A North regional semifinal. The Doves (16-6) will be looking for their fifth straight region crown when they visit Poly, a 69-52 winner over Aberdeen in the other semifinal, in Friday's title game.

Buddy Green spent a total of four days at Anne Arundel Medical Center getting treatment for an undisclosed ailment. When the veteran defensive coordinator returned to Navy football practice Wednesday, it was suggested that spending too much time watching Western Kentucky's prolific offense prompted Green to hurry back to work. "Actually, watching Western Kentucky will put you back in the hospital," Green quipped. First-year coach Jeff Brohm has installed a pass-happy Hilltoppers attack that piles up yards and points at a rapid rate.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

For the first two months of her Western High gym class, special education teacher LaDonna Schemm didn't notice. Then a freshman, the ever-bubbly Joy Keene-El would get out of her wheelchair and do everything thrown her way, from tennis to baseball to swimming. One day, when the physical fitness test came around, she did 61 pushups. But eventually an activity came that Keene-El said she couldn't do. And so an incredulous Schemm asked why not. "Look," Keene-El said, hoisting a pant leg. "I don't have any knees.

The first team it drew, Watkins Mill, included last year's Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year Lisa Ostrom.Even though Ostrom, a 6-2 guard, scored a game-high 27 points, her squad did not have the balance or the transition game to keep up with the running Doves (6-0).Despite a slow start, Western rolled past Watkins Mill, 58-35, yesterday at the 21st annual IAABO Girls' Invitational Christmas Basketball Tournament at Prince George's Community College.

Not since Brooks Robinson has any Arkansan been more welcome in Maryland than David Wrightam. And in the tiny Western Maryland hamlet of Williamsport, he may be getting top billing -- at least since last Friday, when he visited the town's Desert Rose Cafe in answer to a challenge from Howard County Executive and Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Ken Ulman. It seems Ulman was on a campaign swing through Western Maryland last week when he stopped at the Desert Rose and noticed a U.S. map owner Rose Harris had hanging on the wall.

BOONSBORO -- In three months on the Appalachian Trail, Jim Parkins has met a federal judge, a doctor, countless Boy Scouts, marijuana-smoking college graduates, and a married couple who celebrate their anniversary each year by feeding hikers for a week. "People who would never talk to each other in the world get along great," said Parkins, a 53-year-old resident of Derby, Conn., as he rested his legs and smoked a cigarette near Annapolis Rock, a popular landmark with a spectacular view of the Cumberland Valley.

The University City (Pa.) girls basketball team showed up more than an hour late yesterday at Western.Its offense, however, didn't arrive until the second half.The top-ranked Doves (21-0) forced 16 turnovers and held their Philadelphia opponent to 12-for-37 shooting in the first half, opening a 13-point lead at the break and holding on for a 72-63 win."We just tried to stay focused," Western guard Chanel Wright said of the delay. "It gave us more time to think about what we wanted to do."For Wright, at least, the extra preparation paid off.The sophomore scored a game-high 29 points -- on 13-for-20 shooting -- and had 12 rebounds and three steals.

Akosa developed into a dynamic performer who ended his high school career with a bang, winning Class 2A state titles in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes and running on the third-place 800-meter relay. That's an unusual combination to win, but Akosa has been strong in all three events this spring. He won all three at the state meet after doing the same thing the week before at the region meet. The senior is headed to Princeton in the fall, and Western Tech coach Shedrick Elliott was delighted by Akosa's development.
