The event will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Catonsville High School's second semester Back-To-School Night will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday. Those coming that night should go right to their student's first-period class and not the auditorium, as there's no meeting there, according to the school website. Bring your student's schedule to use during the event. Students received copies of their schedule last week. It's not a conference night, however, so if you want a conference with a teacher, contact the teacher via email. The school's web site has more information on the event.

The deadlines for senior baby ads in the Catonsville High yearbook are approaching next Friday.
If you have a good baby picture, or pictures, of your Catonsville High senior, the school has an idea for you. It's offering senior baby ads in the upcoming 2012-13 yearbook. The deadline to submit your ad is Jan. 18, according to the school website. Ads are going to be in color in the yearbook. These ads may be bought by anyone and the staff or the buyer can design it, the site states. There are four sizes available: a full page, half-page (horizontal), quarter-page (vertical) and one-eighth of a page (horizontal). The site lists a variety of costs, as well as what you can do with the picture. The last deadline for yearbook ad submissions will be next Friday, and anything turned in after that won't be guaranteed yearbook placement. For …

"I don’t think schools should wait for a death to get prepared." - Mary Newman, president of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation.
It’s a nightmare scenario for parents of athletes: their child collapses in cardiac distress during or after playing a sport. At Catonsville High School, that became reality on Sept. 27, when a player from the visiting Perry Hall High School girls field hockey team collapsed after walking off the field. Coaches and parents trained in CPR responded within seconds to Breanna Sudano and worked on her until paramedics arrived. Sudana survived and may be able to play sports again. Medical officials confirmed she had suffered cardiac arrest. Catonsville High School has four Automatic External Defibrillators or AEDs, all of which were at the school but not on the field at the time of the incident, according to school officials. "I cannot …

The Comets held the lead from start to finish in all three games over previously unbeaten Lansdowne.
After starting the season 0-3 with challenging games against three tough opponents, Catonsville head coach Amanda Kaufman and the rest of the Comets are happy, and relieved, to finally notch one in the win column. Wednesday night the Comets downed a previously unbeaten Lansdowne squad in straight games (25-12, 25-7, 25-21) in a match where they never trailed, despite the Vikings’ refusal to give up down the stretch. “It’s nice to have a win and start gaining momentum into the rest of the season,” Kaufman said. “Our three hardest matches were at the beginning, but we still have Dulaney and Seton Keough as it goes on. But, it’s nice to actually have a win.” Kaufman specifically highlighted her team’s ability to make in-game adjustments on …

Owings Mills boys look to rebound from first two losses of the season, Catonsville girls no longer control their own destiny and factors behind Franklin boys resurgence.
Anybody else sick and tired of snow yet? I know I am. I’ve already started looking at homes in Arizona—not really, I care about Patch sports far too much to even consider leaving Baltimore County! (Although I am going on a cruise toward the end of February.) Travel plans aside, the mid-week onslaught of snowfall has allotted me the free time to take a look back at the past couple of weeks of basketball action and highlight a few newsworthy happenings from around Western Baltimore County. 15th Annual Basketball Academy Unkind to Owings Mills Prior to last weekend, the Eagles were unbeaten at 13-0 and had gained some well deserved respect in the metro area by climbing into the Baltimore Sun poll at No. 15. After leaving Coppin State (the …

Highlighting six players that have contributed to their teams by taking care of the "dirty work" that goes unaccounted for in the stat sheet.
Last week I introduced you to some of the premier players I’ve had the opportunity to cover in my first few months at Patch. And, while those athletes are certainly at the top of their class in Baltimore County, a lot of them wouldn’t be able to do what they do without the foundation set by the players I’m prepared to tell you about now. Regardless of how many stars a team may have, no squad is complete without a player that assumes the responsibility of handling the “dirty work” on the court—the tasks that may not get your last name into the box score for points, but are absolutely essential for a team to win. These players are arguably as important as the top performers I mentioned in last week’s entry. So, without further ado, my Dirty …

Catonsville High School basketball coaches Brian and Lenny Barber utilize a cool, collected style of coaching while working to better the lives of their athletes off the court.
A few weeks ago against county foe Franklin, Catonsville coach Brian Barber called a timeout to devise an in-bounds play from underneath the hoop. The play worked to perfection, just as he drew it up. A Comets player rolled off a back screen and found himself wide open for a point blank shot. There was just one snag in the well executed play—Barber's player rimmed out the layup. This being my first time covering a Catonsville boys' game, I was intrigued to see how the coach would react when the player returned to the bench. Would he get in the guy's face, demanding to know how he could miss that shot? Or perhaps he'd roar in disgust for all the gym to hear, that a pre-schooler could have sunk the layup. Maybe he'd go with the always …
