John Lowe Winters Mill John Lowe isn't ready to use the "D" word when he describes the wrestling program at Winters Mill. Other people, however, find it easier to call the Falcons a dynasty. For the third straight season, Lowe led Winters Mill to a Class 2A-1A state tournament title. He also led the Falcons to their second straight state dual meet championship. With his team performing at such a consistently high level, Lowe earned Coach of the Year honors for the second consecutive year.

Rosalia Cappadora had two assists for the winners, who won their fifth in a row after starting the season with a loss to Roland Park.

Top-seeded Maryland rolls into the NCAA tournament looking to extend some of the most impressive streaks in any college sport. The Terps are in the NCAA tournament for a record 30th time and 25th consecutive time. No other women's lacrosse team has won more NCAA championships (10), more consecutive championships (seven) or more tournament games (54). They also have the record for most appearances in the title game (17). Maryland, whose program dates to 1974, has won 11 national titles; the first came in the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women in 1981, a few years before the NCAA took over women's intercollegiate athletics and the AIAW ceased to exist.

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.

Thursday's wrestling match was a good measuring stick for Winters Mill and host Owings Mills. For one, it was a step in the right direction. For another, maybe a little hiccup. The visiting Falcons (1-3) fell behind early but rallied to win 11 consecutive matches to defeat the No. 11 Eagles (3-2), 49-24. Both teams dropped matches to Leonardtown (14-1) before facing each other. "What you saw tonight were two historically strong teams in a rebuilding mode," said Winters Mill coach John Lowe, whose team won the Class 2A-1A state title last year.

The realization that long-distance runner Hannah Oneda would represent the United States at the 2013 Pan Am Junior Athletics Championships in Medellin, Colombia, this weekend didn't fully hit the Westminster native and Winters Mill graduate until she opened a package sent by USA Track & Field recently. Inside the shipment was a suitcase, which included a backpack, a uniform, a podium outfit, a rain jacket, T-shirts and shorts - all embroidered with the Team USA logo. Oneda, a soon-to-be sophomore at Johns Hopkins who earned a spot on the national team by finishing third in the 5,000-meter race at the U.S. Junior National Track & Field championships on June 20 in Des Moines, Iowa, knew the gear was coming, but she was still in awe that her name was listed on the shipping label.

Home Turf: 560 Gorsuch Road, Westminster Head Coach: Ken Johnson (10th season) 2011 Record: 6-4 overall; 4-3 county The Falcons were oh-so-close in 2011. Despite having the county's youngest squad a year ago, Winters Mill fell just one win short of a Class 2A West Region playoff berth. The upstart Falcons surprised a lot of observers with early-season wins over two Frederick County teams in Oakdale and Frederick, but a late-season loss to Liberty sunk Winters Mill's playoff hopes.

At the end of Monday's regional lacrosse semifinal, the Winters Mill girls raced across the field to embrace goalie Katie Horn. While most of the game was a shooters' contest, Horn made two critical saves in the final five minutes to preserve a 13-12 victory over Carroll County rival Liberty. The No. 6 Falcons advance to meet the winner of Monday's Glenelg-North Carroll game for the Class 2A-1A regional title Wednesday at McDaniel. Horn stopped a free-position shot by Shelby Nemecek, who had already scored six goals, and then with 2:24 to go, she snagged a terrific shot from Amy Roguski, coming at her one-on-one in transition.
