There was a time when Vero Beach was a sleepy little town that came alive for six weeks every year when the Dodgers moved into Dodgertown for spring training. The players jokingly referred to it as "Zero Beach," back when I was a Dodgers beat writer here in the early 1980s. The area has been built up considerably since then, and a few of those Dodgers players and coaches who used to joke about it have moved here to enjoy the relatively quiet life along this picturesque stretch of Atlantic coastline.

Fallston High's football team hasn't had a record like this in 10 years.Dave Cesky, in his 17th season as the only head coach the school has had, says he's never had a team like this.When the Cougars defeated Northeast, 20-14, Friday night they ran their record to 6-0 and won for the 10th time in 11 games.For that kind of success, one has to go back to the 1983 team that won its first six and finished 7-3.How bad were the intervening years? Bad enough that last year's 6-4 team ended a string of eight straight non-winning seasons.

As No. 6 St. Frances avenged an early season loss to No. 3 McDonogh last night, the 58-42 victory came as a result of the young Panthers' development as a team rather than McDonogh falling into a slump. The visiting Eagles, who started the season 16-0, suffered their second straight loss. The Panthers (12-6) have won five of their past six to pull even with McDonogh at 11-2 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. "This says a lot about St. Frances' growth as a team," said McDonogh coach Tom Gizzi, whose squad won a 54-41 decision on Dec. 6. "We caught them in the second game of the year, but they were very, very young.

Last season, Laurel High's boys soccer team felt it could be their time to win a regional championship. However, after a 10-5 regular season that earned them the No. 10 seed in the 4A regional playoffs, Laurel's season ended with a bitter 1-0 loss to second-seeded Parkdale in the second round of the playoffs. Players have put that playoff loss and last year behind them and have focused on the promise of this year's team. Some of the senior leaders say this could be Laurel's best team in years, despite their youth and the loss of many seniors from last year's team.

Youth is not always served in the National Football League.That was the message from Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda and the team's vice president of player personnel Ozzie Newsome yesterday as they sifted through the wreckage of the team's 3-7 season.In the wake of the poor showing in the 14-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers Sunday, both said the team's youth is one of the problems it has yet to overcome."I think it's maturity," Newsome said. "That's probably the biggest point. You have to understand how to win. We have a young team.

Frank Wycheck, the former University of Maryland running back who was suspended by the NFL the final four games last year because of steroid use, is going to try to make a comeback with the Washington Redskins this year.The Redskins, who originally planned to leave Wycheck exposed in the expansion draft until the league ruled a suspended player wasn't eligible for the list, have agreed to terms with him on a one-year deal for the $178,000 minimum.Wycheck said the steroid entered his system inadvertently when he was using the compound DMSO to treat a thigh bruise last summer.

In making their last major cutdown, the Ravens opted for youth over experience when they unexpectedly released veteran special teams standout Harold Morrow, according to moves reported to the NFL last night. The decision opened an extra spot on the team's 53-man roster, enabling the Ravens to keep three young players - receiver Clarence Moore, defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin and quarterback Josh Harris - who all had been on the bubble. Morrow, 31, was known for his bruising style on coverage teams, recording 140 career special teams tackles.

NEW YORK -- The Orioles came away from the National League expansion draft unscathed for the 1993 season, losing two untested pitchers.General manager Roland Hemond said he was pleased with the outcome and that the light damage did not indicate the Orioles' talent wasn't worth plundering.The Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins passed over unprotected Orioles veterans, such as first basemen Glenn Davis and Randy Milligan, second basemen Bill Ripken and Mark McLemore and pitchers Bob Milacki and Mark Williamson, in favor of a pair of young right-handers: Kip Yaughn and Richie Lewis.
