Monday may have been the final day of spring break for most students in Carroll County, but not for players on the Winters Mill lacrosse team. With a game against rival Westminster just a day away, coach Sal Picataggi kept his players in the classroom for 90 minutes, watching film and game-planning, and then took them outside for a two-and-a-half hour hour practice. On Tuesday, all the hard work paid off. The host Falcons held the No. 9 Owls scoreless for the final 19 minutes, 36 seconds, taking the lead for good on midfielder Jacques Mercer's goal with 1:08 to play in a 6-5 win. Picataggi said the extra preparation was critical against a high-powered foe that entered the night having won eight straight by an average of more than eight goals.

For me and many of my old school friends, sport is not about efficiency, titles and "winning" but rather about fairness and appreciation of athletic ability and the effort it takes. Instilling those values in children, whether they go on to become athletes or not, is something most parents are challenged by. Having the Ravens' training camp in a small town is right for many reasons, the biggest being the opportunity it gives the team to engage children, especially those from families who can't afford game day at the stadium.

Defense contractor General Dynamics said Thursday that it expects to lay off 31 Westminster-based employees in July, a smaller second round of cuts after eliminating 80 jobs at the Carroll County operation earlier this month. The cuts hit workers in the robotics systems division. About 370 employees will remain after the newest layoffs. General Dynamics worked as a subcontractor on a job building mail sorters for the U.S. Postal Service, but that contract is finished, the company said.
