General Motors has reason to celebrate after the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray won the Car of the Year Award during the press preview day of the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Chevrolet (a division of General Motors) swept both of the day’s major awards, with the Silverado pickup truck nabbing Truck of the Year honors.
In addition, Toyota surprised many at the Detroit auto show with its introduction of the FT-1 concept sports car, its “spiritual pace car” for the future that draws on a robust history of sports cars.

As the fall high school sports season wraps up with championship play, we thought it would be a good time to look back at the best pictures from 2013. These photos show the intensity of competition as well as the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.

For the past three years, the Howard County girls golf scene has been dominated by the talented duo of Bryana Nguyen (Atholton) and Rachel Lee (Marriotts Ridge).
Nguyen, a three-time county Player of the Year, added a state championship to her resume last fall at the University of Maryland golf course. She also owns the county’s girls golf record for scoring average over the course of an entire season.
Lee, meanwhile, is a three-time first team all-county selection in her own right. She has finished in the top three in the county in scoring average every season since arriving as a freshman and has finished fourth at the state championship tournament for two straight years.
Nguyen has verbally committed to play collegiately at the University of North Carolina, while Lee committed this spring to the University of Delaware.

In the latest edition of Sports Breakdown with the Howard County Times, editor Brent Kennedy faces off on the putting green with reigning state golf champion Bennett Buch, of Marriotts Ridge High School.
Buch made history last fall as a freshman, capturing the boys golf state championship with a record-setting two-day total of 138 (4-under par) at the University of Maryland golf course.
Leading up to his sophomore year, Buch has continued his outstanding play. In late June, he captured the 89th Maryland Junior Amateur title by three shots.
