Police say 18-year-old Norman Hardy and his 14-year-old cousin entered the school through a door that had been propped open.
Two teenagers were arrested Wednesday morning for trespassing at Old Mill High School, and at least one of the teens entered the school twice without permission, police and school officials said. Neither of the teens are students at Old Mill, but one was as recently as February. While police and school officials said the pair were just there to socialize, one of the teens was charged with weapons violations after three knives were found in a backpack. This comes after a student brought a loaded gun to Glen Burnie High School on April 2, and an unarmed trespasser made it into North County High School in February.

Students who violate Anne Arundel County Public Schools' illegal substance policy leading up to the week of graduation will face penalties.
High school seniors who participate in celebrations with alcohol or other substances will face serious consequences, according to the school system.

Running back Rob Chesson scored seven touchdowns on 22 carries and racked up 306 yards, while breaking the school record for yards in a season and the state record for rushing touchdowns in a season.
The Old Mill Patriots are headed to the Maryland 4A State Finals on the back of their electric runner, Rob Chesson, and a stout defense that has allowed only 34 points in the playoffs.

Chesson rolled up 306 yards rushing and scored all seven of Old Mill’s touchdowns as Catonsville fell behind early in the first quarter and never could keep pace, falling 49-20. The Patriots (13-0) held the Comets to season-lows in points and total rushing yards. Catonsville, who averaged 362 yards on the ground in its previous two playoff games, could only muster 171 yards on 35 carries Friday night. “Catonsville has a ton of speed and our kids showed a lot of …
