March 29, 2006

Anne Arundel

Who

No. 1 Calvert Hall at No. 8 Archbishop Spalding

Sport, When

Baseball, Friday, 3:30 p.m.

Outlook

The defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion Cardinals come to Severn to play the Cavaliers, who are expected to challenge for the title. Calvert Hall catcher Joe Velleggia is one of the area's top hitters. The young but talented Cavaliers are led by the hitting of Chris Huisman, Kody Hines and Paul DeVito.

Baltimore City

Who

No. 1 Loyola at No. 6 Mt. St. Joseph

Sport, When

Boys lacrosse, Friday, 4 p.m.

Outlook

The Dons represent a big test for the Gaels, who have been tabbed as having perhaps their best program in decades, led by All-Metro defender Sam Eitel. The Gaels are hoping not only to make a run at the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs, but also at the championship.

Baltimore County

Who

Parkville at No. 11 Eastern Tech

Sport, When

Baseball, today, 3:45 p.m.

Outlook

The Knights return six of nine starters from a squad that went 16-4 last season and lost to Baltimore County 4A-3A League rival Perry Hall, 1-0, in the Class 4A North regional semifinal. The Mavericks, who are the defending Class 2A state champions, still are smarting from a 3-2 loss last Wednesday to Arundel, last year's Class 4A state runner-up.

Carroll

Who

Century at Winters Mill

Sport, When

Girls lacrosse, Friday, 6 p.m.

Outlook

In a rematch of last year's Class 2A-1A West final, won by Century, 7-6, in overtime, two of Carroll County's premier programs meet in a key early season matchup. Century, which has won the past three county titles and advanced to the state championship game each time, is attempting to replace its entire defense.

Harford

Who

John Carroll at Saints Peter & Paul

Sport, When

Boys lacrosse, Friday, 4 p.m.

Outlook

This will be a tough early-season test for the struggling Patriots. John Carroll lost two of its first three games, while Saints Peter & Paul sits atop the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference's Division I with a 3-0 record. The Patriots won two straight conference titles before losing to Park in last year's championship game.

Howard

Who

No. 15 Glenelg at No. 7 Centennial

Sport, When

Baseball, today, 3:45 p.m.

Outlook

The Eagles feature a strong lineup led by junior outfielder Alex Bechta, a first-team All-County selection last season, and second-team junior Austin Harclerode. The Gladiators will lean on their deep pitching rotation, led by sophomore second-team choice Hunter Kitchens, and a balanced offense.
