* Under-15 1/2 girls -- The Columbia Cougars won both of their games in last weekend's Raleigh, N.C. Shootout but came away with little to show for it.

After defeating Augusta, Ga., 5-0, and local rival Northeast, 3-0, the Cougars were rained out of their third game and were forced to participate in a tie-breaking shootout with Raleigh to determine which team would play in the final.

Columbia lost by one and went home empty-handed.

Paige Young, Emily Bielefeld and Michelle Osterberger scored two goals each during the tournament. Carolyn Flowers and Natalie Hoover had one each, and Bielefeld, Flowers, Angela Jefferson and Carrie Winkler added assists.

Goalies Laura Fawley and Kate Macfarlane played important roles in the shutouts.


* 10-12 girls -- Julia Papania scored nine points to lead Maryland to a 22-19 win over Georgia Tech last weekend in the Major Girls division of the Howard County Youth Program Basketball League.

Point guard Christy Rochelle and guards Lillian Chum, Erin Steur and Becky Philips led a stingy Maryland defense. Forwards Kathy Lloyd, Caroline Darling and Julia Papania came up with big rebounds.

L Darling sealed the win in the final minutes with foul shots.

Melissa Godfrey and Laura Kiefer led Georgia Tech, forcing turnovers and jump balls on defense. Jill Carr had four points and 12 rebounds; Sarah Walsh had eight points and eight rebounds; and Rebecca Kulah scored three and played strong defense.

Rachel Lisi and Sophia Han also played well in defeat.

Other scores around the league were: Notre Dame 28, Michigan State 6; UCLA 42, Boston College 11; Virginia 29, Duke 20; and LSU 34, N.C. State 20.

* 9-year-old boys -- Miami was a winner over the weekend in the Howard County Youth Program Basketball League, Midget Boys Division, beating N.C. State, 34-11.

Elsewhere in the league, Georgetown topped Maryland, 28-22; UCLA defeated Boston College, 31-19; Virginia edged Villanova, and Georgia Tech beat LSU, 16-10.


Elizabeth Kasmides, Kim Jewell and Daria Hay finished among the top four in their division, leading the Level 7, 8-11-year-old team from Top Flight Gymnastics to a win at last weekend's Harford Holiday Meet at Harford Gymnastics.

Kasmides used a first-place finish on the uneven bars to win the division with a 35.35 all-around; Jewell (second with 35.1) and Hay (fourth with 33.5) finished close behind.

Megan Miller took sixth place in the floor exercise but didn't qualify for the all-around.

Another of the team's Level 7 competitors, Jennifer Chairs, finished first or second in all four events to capture second-place in the 12-over all-around with a 35.2.

Two other Top Flight gymnasts -- Gabrielle Federline (fourth in Level 6) and Emily Pieplow (seventh in Level 5, 9-12 age group) -- took home ribbons in the all-around. The meet marked the Pieplow's first appearance in a competitive meet.

For several other team members it was a day of firsts.

Allison Holden and Chris Macey, both competing in the Level 5, 7-8 group, won the first ribbons of their careers. Holden took seventh in the vault (7.9); Macey captured eighth in the beam (8.45) and ninth in the bars (8.75).
