At Woodmont Academy, a Catholic school in western Howard County, students in art classes paint images of the Madonna. In science, they talk about the soul and how it separates humans from animals. They celebrate All Saints Day by dressing as their favorite saints, and they're told to be nice to others because that's what Jesus wants them to do. It's all part of a curriculum called Integral Foundation, which stresses the "formation of the whole person," said Executive Director Scott Brown.

ROCKVILLE - On a day when grounds crews' squeegees were as important as any golfer's putter, amateur Bill Haas used Woodmont Country Club's sopping wet greens for target practice as he played his way into next week's U.S. Open. Sharing medalist honors at the sectional qualifier at Woodmont yesterday, Haas, 21, and two others outclassed a field filled with professionals to earn the chance to compete alongside his father, PGA Tour veteran Jay Haas, at next week's Open at Olympia Fields, Ill., south of Chicago.

Steve Madsen, from Lakewood Country Club, and Zoran Zorkic, a part-time Buy.Com tour player from Humble, Texas, each birdied the first hole at Eagle's Nest yesterday morning to earn the last available places in the U.S. Open sectional qualifying event June 3 at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville. When play was suspended in Monday's rain-delayed local qualifier, in which 126 players were seeking nine spots at Woodmont, the regular round had been completed. Seven players, led by Shane Bertsch's 65, were at 69 or better, and six players were tied at 2-under-par 70. After Madsen and Zorkic had made their decisive putts at the 451-yard first playoff hole, it took just one more to sort out the alternate positions for the remaining players.

A Baltimore County Catholic school that wants to relocate to western Howard has submitted new plans for its 53-acre site in Glenwood, ending a six-month delay of the contentious proposal. Woodmont Academy, which has not been assigned a date with the county Planning Board, pulled its previous plan last fall to make small changes. "The plans are pretty much the same," said Keith Laser, the school's principal. "[We] had to make some allowances for the placement of the septic field." Glenwood residents who believe that the school would overwhelm the area's rural roads were disappointed.

Woodmont Academy, which wants to move its campus to Glenwood, has postponed its date with the Howard County Planning Board. The board was to have heard the plans Thursday, but the hearing likely will be delayed for several months. A new date had not been set. Officials with the private Catholic school, now in the Baltimore County area of Woodstock, want to move to a 53.5-acre site in Glenwood and eventually build facilities for 1,100 students. Neighbors object, saying the project is too large for the area.
