Lindsay Frank scored a game-high 13 points to lead the attack, and Tanae Jenifer scored six and Sarah Costa, Sarah Hobart, Missy Moore and Fana Walcott each added four.

Charity Stone, Ashley Hooper and Shanae Johnson led the Terrapins' defense.

* Under-10 boys -- The Terps of the Howard County Youth Program began their season on a high note, defeating Duke, 28-16. Nick Morabito and Ian Willet scored eight points apiece to lead a balanced Terps offense. Dan Valente paced Duke with 10 points.

* 12-13 girls -- Jane Williams scored a game-high 18 points and made a number of excellent passes to lead Duke past Boston College, 48-30, over the weekend in the Howard County Youth Program.

Tammi Slater scored eight points, Jessica Euler had six and Lauren Markle and Alice Stanton added four each for the victors. Mia Molfino and Christina Langmead also played well for Duke, excelling at the defensive end.

Stephanie Martin and Lauren Martin led the way for Boston College.

In other games last week, Virginia defeated N.C. State, 25-20; Notre Dame scored wins over UCLA, 37-21, and N.C. State, 54-34; LSU beat UCLA, 30-20; N.C. State bested Georgia Tech, 36-26, and Duke edged Michigan State, 21-20.

* Adults -- After two games, the season is starting to heat up in the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Winter Basketball League.

Three teams are off to a 3-0 start in the Sunday B Northern Division. The P.T.P.'ers, Fred Frank Bailbonds and the Runnin' Rebs are tied for first with K.A.O.S. and The "Burg" each a game

back at 1-1.

Things are quite different in the Southern Division, where Muthas (1-1) and Columbia Mortgage (1-1) are the only teams with a win.

In the Sunday C Division, Wine and OHMEDA are both 2-0, followed by the Lakers and the Untouchables, both 1-1.

Teams in the Tuesday and Wednesday leagues have played only one game each.

In the Tuesday C Division, the Rainmen, MD's Country Pub, Bippy's Pub, Comcast Ballers and the No Names all have wins, while in the Wednesday C Division, Three Peat Can't Choke, the No Names, Fenga Homes and Enterprise Electric are off to 1-0 starts.

Soccer

Under-16 girls -- The Columbia Spirit took second place in the recent Orange Bowl Soccer Tournament in Miami Lakes, Fla.

After scoring a 2-0 win over defending national champion Team Boca (Fla.), the Spirit dropped a 1-0 decision to New York power Yorktown in the tournament finals.

The Orange Bowl Tournament is considered by most college coaches to be the second most competitive soccer tournament in the United States next to the Washington Area Girls Soccer League Tournament.

Indoor -- Matt Boras scored a goal and dominated on the defensive end to help the Western Howard County Thunder to a 7-1 win over the Columbia Cosmos on Saturday in the Super Sports Indoor Soccer League.

The Thunder controlled play from the outset, taking an early 1-0 lead on a booming shot by Boras. They continued their exciting passing and

shooting throughout the first half, taking a 5-0 lead by the break after goals by Erik Hill, Shane Baxter, Jason Bostron and Brian Hollrah.

Hill and Baxter then each scored their second goals of the game in the second half.

Strong defensive efforts came from Boras, Peter Bythrow and James Borkowski, complementing the play of first-time Thunder goalie Christopher van Rautenkrantz.

Gymnastics

It was a big weekend for Level 8 and 9 competitors from the Top Flight Gymnastics Club of Columbia.

Though team members won just one event at the East Coast Classic, Top Flight racked up numerous top-10 finishes.

Jennifer Hanna led the way in the Level 8 Optional, 8-11-year-old class, winning the vault (8.55) and taking sixth on the floor exercise (8.75).

Teammate Yael Sollins also did well, taking fourth place on the floor exercise with an 8.9.

In the 12-14 group, Shawna Swem finished third in the floor with an 8.85. Among the team's Level 9 gymnasts, Kierney Hiteshew led the way, placing second in the all-around (33.2) and seventh in the beam (7.2).

Two other Top Flight gymnasts, Lindsey Boyer and Rebecca Berkowitz, also finished among the all-around leaders. Boyer took fourth with a 31.35 and Berkowitz took seventh with a 30.1.

This weekend's Maryland Gymnastics Cup at UMBC will feature athletes from some of the top gymnastics clubs on the East Coast.

But one local club, Gymnastics Plus in Columbia, should be right in the thick of things.

The team features the only Class One gymnast in Maryland, Kevin Gibson, as well as a handful of Class Two gymnasts. There also will be several other area teams, including Fairlands in Laurel and Barlow's in Annapolis.

This is a huge meet for high school-age gymnasts vying for college scholarships, and will be attended by numerous Division I scouts.
