Twenty years ago, I traveled one of the greatest distances one could cover in Maryland's public school system: I left the "A" course at Baltimore's Western High School, a rigorous college preparatory program that had me on the verge of a breakdown, for the wide, open spaces of Columbia's Wilde Lake High School, where failure was impossible.Wilde Lake, just three years old, was already revising itself, as it has continued to do over the years. But the overhaul announced last month, which includes a traditional grade structure with failing grades, may mark the end of an era.In some ways, it's hard to mourn that end. From the beginning, "open space" education, like a temperamental new car, seemed to need constant tinkering.

If you're an Orioles fan and you're concerned about the fact that the two wild-card teams have made it to the League Championship Series round of the postseason, there's no reason to fret about it. I've always believed that the wild-card teams had a bit of an emotional advantage entering the playoffs, because they generally have to grind right to the final weekend of the season before punching their ticket to the playoffs. It seems logical and it has held true over the course of the wild-card era. However, it's going to matter less in the LCS round because everybody has been playing tough, tight games through the first two playoff rounds.

Not many teams score 39 points in one quarter. Even fewer score 39 and lose. But Wilde Lake did just that yesterday at Atholton.For three quarters No. 11 Atholton (16-1 overall, 8-1 league) outplayed Wilde Lake in every way imaginable.Atholton's defense played especially well, limiting the Wildecats to 24 points during those three periods.But what everyone in attendance will remember was Wilde Lake's fourth-quarter comeback -- even though it was achieved mainly against Atholton's second team.

With the Kansas City Royals' thrilling, 12-inning victory in the American League wild-card playoff game early this morning, the start time for the Orioles' first game of the divisional playoffs has been set. The O's will play the Detroit Tigers at 5:37 p.m. Thursday at Camden Yards. The game would have started a half hour later had the Oakland A's won the wild-card game. The Orioles will send Chris Tillman to the mound in Game 1 against 2013 Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer.

It's been too long for Todd DeCrispino to be picky about how the victories come.After losses to Wilde Lake in each of his first four seasons as Centennial wrestling coach, DeCrispino saw his Eagles manhandle the host Wildecats, 45-28, last night in a Howard County match.That Wilde Lake is thin in depth and experience didn't detract from the victory by a markedly improved Centennial squad, DeCrispino said."It's just like history; it goes through cycles," he said. "My cycle right now is we're climbing our peak.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall. He scored a 49-second victory at the Seahawk Invitational last week and posted another big win in Saturday's Howard County Invitational at Centennial. The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

For two years, the crew of the USS Jeannette was trapped in ice north of the Bering Sea. The sailors staged musicals, played football, ate seal meat (which they dubbed "arctic turkey") and even performed surgery on the eye of a crew member afflicted with syphilis. Then, in June 1881, the real adventure began: The Jeannette sank. The men loaded their provisions onto dog sleds and began the trek to Siberia, some 1,000 miles away. Journalist Hampton Sides tells the story of the Jeannette's star-crossed expedition in his latest book, "In the Kingdom of Ice. " Sides spent more than three years poring over thousands of pages of records kept by the ship's captain, letters, diary entries and testimony from the 13 men who survived the brutal journey.

On Friday, Towson released its first depth chart, and one of the notable developments was at free safety where redshirt sophomore Jordan Mynatt ranked ahead of junior Christian Carpenter, a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association last season. During his weekly conference call Monday afternoon, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said Mynatt, a Columbia native and Wilde Lake graduate, has grown exponentially since training camp opened Aug. 4. “From where he was a year ago, he's a lot more skilled and knowledgeable at the position,” Ambrose said.

The Orioles suddenly have an offense that is clubbing the ball, a pitching staff that is consistently limiting the opposition and a fan base that is packing the stadium, hooting and hollering throughout the game. After a 10-3 drilling of the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday afternoon, these first-place Orioles are partying like it's 1979. Or at least their fans are. “Nothing is given. Every day is another challenge,” Orioles manager and self-imposed reality-checker Buck Showalter said.

A zoo menagerie - including a parrot, a boa constrictor and an African pygmy hedgehog - greeted 5-year-old Finn Seamans of Odenton on Wednesday when he arrived at a courtyard between two office buildings in Elkridge. But the animals, provided by the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , were only a preview of coming attractions. This month, Finn and his parents leave for a trip to California's wine country to admire giraffes and wildebeests at an African-style preserve, thanks to Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic.

The Maryland Zoo is calling all birds of a feather to help name its new bald eagle. The contest, which opened on Independence Day and runs through July 14, is asking the public to name its newest avian resident, a female eagle found in North Carolina in 2009 that is estimated to be about 5-years-old. Though efforts were made to rehabilitate the bird, it was determined that she wouldn't be likely to survive if released back into the wild, according to the zoo's website. The zoo's staff previously selected five finalists: Annie (for gunfighter Annie Oakley)

Three games. Three shutouts. It's beginning to look like Fallston won't give up a goal all season.The No. 2 Cougars left no doubt about their superiority against No. 9 Wilde Lake yesterday at Howard Community College. The game wasn't nearly as close as the 3-0 final score.Fallston's superior speed led to all three first-half goals. Wilde Lake seemed unable, or unwilling, to apply significant defensive pressure that half.Mike Giuffrida burned Wilde Lake for two goals -- one because of his speed and one because he was in the right place at the right time.

Anytime a team beats four-time state champion Wilde Lake, 35-7, one would expect the winning coach to be glowing.And South Carroll coach Gene Brown, whose Cavaliers produced that result in the opener against the Wildecats at Howard High yesterday, was smiling after the game. But he had reservations."It feels good to beat a class program like Wilde Lake, but I'm not quite happy," he said.The reason? His offense managed only 103 yards -- 80 passing and 23 rushing -- and that left him a little worried.

The Orioles didn't need a game-ending three-run homer Wednesday night to complete their second dramatic comeback victory in three games against the Chicago White Sox. A walk-off wild pitch in the early hours of Thursday morning was enough. Looking like they were about to lose the rubber match of their three-game series against the struggling White Sox, the Orioles rallied again for a 5-4 win Wednesday on a game-clinching wild pitch in the 12th inning of a 4-hour, 3-minute marathon that also included a 1-hour, 9-minute rain delay.

In "Wild with Happy," Colman Domingo's endearing comedy now at Center Stage, cynicism rubs against old-fashioned faith; satire mingles with fantasy; ultra-campy flamboyance snuggles alongside down-home sentiment and wisdom. The characters run away from, and toward, each other, at an alarming speed, hitting or swerving around issues of life, love and death as they go. It all makes for an unusual, eventful ride. At the center of things is Gil (Forrest McClendon), a gay, 40-ish, well-educated actor living in New York without much luck at substantial gigs or lasting relationships.
