Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Girls Athlete of the Week // Kourtney Salvarola, Broadneck, volleyball

The senior hitter, a four-year starter, dominated the Class 4A state tournament last week to lead the Bruins to their third straight championship. In Saturday's 25-15, 25-29, 28-26 win over Magruder in the finals, Salvarola had 14 kills and 13 digs - stepping up big late in the third game when the Bruins trailed 18-13. In Wednesday's semifinal win over Urbana, captured in four games, she finished with 14 kills and 17 digs. Salvarola also is a standout softball player and has accepted a scholarship to play that sport at South Florida. Last spring, the pitcher was named the All-Metro Player of the Year after leading the Bruins to the 4A state championship.
