Spring sports


No. 14 John Carroll pulled a softball upset over No. 3 Institute of Notre Dame, 2-1, yesterday in eight innings without earning a hit.

The host Patriots' Angela DiBeneditto struck out 19, and Colleen Matthes struck out 15 for the Indians (15-4). Both pitched all eight innings. DiBeneditto gave up only three hits, two of them singles.

Matthes held John Carroll without a hit, but three IND passed balls and a throwing error that pulled the first baseman off the bag proved to be the difference for the Patriots in the last two innings.

Dulaney 5-4, Eastern Tech 1-11 -- The Lions (13-3) and the Mavericks (11-5) split a doubleheader played at Eastern Tech. Dulaney's victory in the first game clinched a spot in the Baltimore County championship game against either Catonsville or Western Tech.


No. 1 Calvert Hall-No. 2 Spalding -- History repeated itself as top-ranked Calvert Hall (22-0) visited No. 2 Archbishop Spalding (20-6) for a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference baseball game and only one umpire showed up. The same thing happened last season, and again Cardinals coach Lou Eckerl refused to play. Attempts to reach another umpire failed, and a little after 5 p.m. the schools agreed to a postponement. "It's kind of unbelievable this happened again, but we will reschedule it," said Eckerl, whose Cardinals edged the Cavaliers, 11-10, in Towson on April 2.
