There was more than a little concern going into this season about Maryland's defense and its collective ability to get to opposing quarterbacks. The departure of All-ACC player Joe Vellano and Darin Drakeford -- who each had six sacks last season -- as well as A.J. Francis (4 sacks), Kenneth Tate (4) and Demetrius Hartsfield (3.5) left many in College Park wondering where the Terps were going to get sacks. Three games into the 2013 schedule and heading into Saturday's game against West Virginia at M&T Bank Stadium,  the answer is apparent for a team that leads the country with 4.67 sacks per game.

When Chaquon Whitfield turns 16 this month, it will be a day that's more than sweet. In many ways, her mother, Michelle Whitfield, says, it's a miracle. Thirteen years ago, Chaquon was pulled from the ashes of a fire that ripped through the basement of her great-grandmother's rowhouse, severely burning her. Days later, her younger brother and cousin died from their injuries. Chaquon doesn't remember that day, but she's reminded of the March 1993 fire every time she looks in the mirror.

South River senior Jen Whitfield got hooked on pole vaulting in her freshman year, and she's been clearing the cross bar ever since. Competing in the indoor and outdoor seasons for four years, she has won one state title (her sophomore year in indoor) and has finished second at states in each of her first three years of outdoor. She would like nothing better than to come away with that elusive outdoor state title this spring. Whitfield has also won a number of county titles in indoor and outdoor and has the school record in both seasons - leaping 9 feet, 7 inches in indoor and 9-6 in outdoor.

WASHINGTON -- Members of the thoroughbred racing community pleaded with a House subcommittee yesterday to take command of the horse racing industry. "Nobody is in charge," said Arthur Hancock, who owned and bred 1989 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Sunday Silence. "We are a rudderless ship." The hearing room in the Rayburn Building was standing-room-only as members of Congress held a hearing on "Breeding, Drugs and Breakdowns: The State of Thoroughbred Horseracing and the Welfare of the Thoroughbred."

Three days after the Kentucky Derby, Eight Belles' trainer angrily denied that steroids contributed to her gut-wrenching breakdown on the Churchill Downs track. To prove his claim, Larry Jones said he was voluntarily doing something that officials inside and outside horse racing say should have been made mandatory years ago - testing for performance-enhancing drugs. Horse racing, unlike major league baseball, basketball and football, doesn't ban steroids. Horsemen such as Rick Dutrow, who trains Preakness favorite Big Brown and other horses, say they legally administer Winstrol - the steroid that former Orioles star Rafael Palmeiro tested positive for - as part of the animals' regimen.

LANDOVER -- Jess Huber spent much of the pole vault competition relaxing on the long bench adjacent to the runway. The North Carroll senior sat in her sweat suit, laughing and giggling while chatting with other girls during the Class 4A state championship meet. She remained relaxed when her chance finally came. Huber had little trouble winning her third consecutive state championship last night at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex. "I vault better when I'm relaxed," Huber said.
