The unmistakable roar from the Sherwood High School student section that accompanied every smash by senior Alex Holston filled the Ritchie Coliseum more often than the Arundel girls volleyball team would have liked on Monday night.

Four days after the University of Florida recruit set an MPSSAA tournament record with 42 kills in the semifinals, Holston had 25 more to finish off her high school career by leading the Warriors to their third consecutive Class 4A state championship with a 3-0 (27-25, 25-14, 25-13) victory over the Wildcats.

When Bernie Walter left his home just outside of Baltimore to attend the University of Maryland as a 17-year-old freshman in 1959, the recent Brooklyn Park High School graduate dreamed of playing basketball and baseball for his new school, unsure of his chances but determined to give it a try.

When he returned to College Park 50 years later as the winningest coach in Maryland high school baseball history, the university’s newly-minted director of baseball operations hoped to use his wealth of knowledge and experience to aid a new coaching staff in lifting his beloved Terps out of their perennially losing ways.

During the intervening half-century, as he forged a career that would lead to his induction into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2007, Walter remained a loyal and passionate supporter of the University of Maryland and its sports teams. As a season-ticket holder for the school’s football and basketball teams, and as a member of the Terrapin Club, the M Club and the Home Run Club, Walter never wavered in his love for his alma mater.
