Three starting players on the Glenelg football team will not play in this Saturday's game against Mount Hebron after being charged by Howard County police with underage drinking at a Glenelg residence following Glenelg's homecoming dance last Saturday night.
The school is not disclosing their names because the players in question are underage.
They were among 22 youths issued written citations requiring them to appear in court.
"They are still investigating the details but they could be gone for the rest of the season," Gladiators coach John Davis said.
Glenelg athletic director Mike Williams had no comment.
The Gladiators are 4-3, 3-3 in the league this season.
Sophomore Mount Hebron quarterback Mike Fallon made his first start an auspicious one last Saturday when the Vikings nipped Atholton, 21-20, in overtime.
Fallon completed 12 of 16 passes for 182 yards and one touchdown. He also got the game-winning touchdown on a quarterback sneak.
Mike Mongelli, the director of the Howard County Golf Club, shot a hole-in-one at Hobbit's Glen on Saturday.
Mongelli, a physical education teacher and basketball coach at Hammond High, hit a 9-iron on the 120-yard fifth hole that cleared a trap and disappeared into the cup.
It was his fourth hole-in-one and was witnessed by Bob and Ilsa Colvin and Dan Davic.
Spranklin wins golf title

Howard gets hot
The Howard Lions boys soccer team has won six straight games since opening its season at 0-4-1.
Coach Brian Boussy said the team's goal was to finish fifth in the county and the 4-3 Lions are currently sixth, but just a half game behind both Centennial and Wilde Lake with two games to play.
The Lions can move into fifth with a win over Centennial tomorrow. They finish their regular season against River Hill on Tuesday.
Howard's leading scorers are Chris Goodman (two goals, nine assists) and Kevin Berwind (eight goals, four assists).
