The Raiders' varsity football team (2-5, 1-4) may not be having a banner season, but that's no fault of its senior co-captains, middle linebackers Kevin Nickey and Jason Walker.


Nickey leads the team with 44 solo tackles. He also has nine assists, two sacks and one fumble recovery. Walker has 42 solo tackles and 12 assists.



Mary Ellen Carullo was expected to be one of Centennial's top girls soccer players this season.

A knee injury has kept her sidelined most of the season, and just as she was attempting to come back, she reinjured the knee during practice last Monday.

On the sidelines at the Howard game Wednesday, Carullo, on crutches, said she'll probably miss the rest of the season and faces arthroscopic surgery.


The Gladiators are seeking approval for constructing dugouts for the baseball and softball fields at Glenelg.

The dugouts probably won't be ready for this spring. The only other county field equipped with dugouts is at Atholton.


Most observers didn't expect the Bears' varsity volleyball team to be in second place at this point in the season.


Sonia Keiner, a setter, middle hit ter and server, and setter Jennifer Garlick are two of the key reasons behind the Bears' success.

Keiner leads the team in kills, service attempts and blocks. Garlick leads in assists.


The girls varsity soccer team narrowly missed the major upset of the season, losing 2-1 in overtime to top-ranked and undefeated Hammond on Tuesday.

Mount Hebron

Even if the Vikings girls varsity cross country team doesn't repeat as county champs Thursday at Howard CC, the future looks bright.


Four of the top eight runners are freshmen, including Julie and Christie Cooper (twins), Erin Curran and Tracey Bates.

Oakland Mills

Oakland Mills' Matt Noon may not be headed for the state golf tournament Oct. 29-30 at College Park, but at least he had the consolation of winning the county championship Tuesday at Hobbit's Glen.

The senior, who missed qualifying for states by one stroke, crushed the rest of the county field by shooting 76, seven strokes ahead of Andrew Kennedy of Mount Hebron.

Wilde Lake

Sophomore Kristen Riismandel scored her first hat trick, as the girls varsity soccer team beat Atholton on Tuesday, 4-1.
