Hopkins' Boland sat Friday after violating team rule

February 21, 2010|By Sports Digest

No. 5 Johns Hopkins, which opened its men's lacrosse season Friday night with a 14-3 victory against Manhattan, did so without senior attackman Chris Boland, who sat out after violating an unspecified team rule. Asked whether there is a timetable for Boland's return, coach Dave Pietramala said: "No. That's something between Chris and our coaching staff, and it's an internal thing." Boland, a Jessup native, was a three-time Sun All-Metro selection and three-time All-American at Boys' Latin.

Laurel Park: Miss Singhsix drew off to victory in the $70,000 Maryland Racing Media Stakes at Laurel Park. Five fillies and mares competed in the 1 1/8 -mile test. Long shot Nasreen set a slow pace through the far turn but gave way gradually as the other four runners moved past. Widest of all was Miss Singhsix under jockey Luis Garcia, who raced with Love's Blush down the stretch before pulling away to win by 1 1/2 lengths in 1 minute, 51.67 seconds. Love's Blush held onto second, and My Main Starr finished an added four lengths back in third. Miss Singhsix, a chestnut daughter of Singspiel, paid $3.80.
