Barreiro, Bulls taken in MLS Supplemental Draft

Former area soccer standouts Christian Barreiro (Calvert Hall) and Andrew Bulls (McDonogh, UMBC) were selected in the Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft on Tuesday. Barreiro, a midfielder-forward, was chosen in the third round by the New York/New Jersey Red Bulls, while Bulls, a midfielder, was taken in the fourth round by the Columbus Crew. Both players were members of the Baltimore Bays 90s team that won the Under-16 USYSA national championship in 2006, the U-18 U.S. Development Academy national championship in 2008 and the U-19 USYSA national championshp in 2009.

D.C. United: Maicon Santos, a Brazilian forward who served as Toronto FC's captain before being traded to FC Dallas last season, has signed with United and is training with the club. Dallas didn't exercise the 37-year-old's contract option, and he wasn't selected in the MLS re-entry draft. He had six goals and an assist in 19 league appearances for Toronto before being dealt to Dallas in August. In 11 matches with the Texas club, he contributed two goals and an assist.

Peterson asks WBA to overturn rematch order

Junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson has taken another step in trying to end Amir Khan's protests over what Khan's camp alleged were improprieties in judging and officiating during their Dec. 10 title bout at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington. Jeff Fried, the attorney representing Peterson, faxed and emailed paperwork to the World Boxing Association on Wednesday afternoon urging the sanctioning body to overturn its decision last week ordering an immediate rematch. The WBA issued its ruling after Khan and his Golden Boy Promotions team filed an appeal in the wake of Khan's loss to Peterson via 12-round split decision. Khan decried the outcome of the fight, citing referee Joe Cooper's deduction of two points without warning and outside interference with the judging at ringside. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer reiterated those charges in a news conference shortly after the bout and applauded the WBA's decision during a telephone interview Friday.

Women's college gymnastics: Towson senior Kacy Catanzaro won the first weekly Eastern College Athletic Conference Coaches' Choice Award.

Pro basketball: The Bay Area Shuckers of the Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League released center Kevin Green (Patterson, Maryland Bible).

Minor league baseball: The Hagerstown Suns, the Single-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, announced that Patrick Anderson has been hired by the Suns as a consultant to the general manager.

Women's bowling: Maria Rodriguez (UMES) won the Team Colombia National Trials for the second year in a row. Rodriguez averaged 210.35 over 48 games to total 10,097 pins and had a high game of 280. She will represent Colombia in international bowling competition throughout the next year. Anggie Ramirez, the current Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Preseason Player of the Year, finished 13th overall, while former UMES All-American Martha Perez took 11th. In Las Vegas, two current and two former Hawks competed for Team USA spots. In a field of just 80 women, newly appointed women's bowling coach and four-time All-American Kristina Frahm finished 17th with a pinfall of 5,598. Sara DiScioscia took 43rd with a pinfall of 4,296, while current Hawks T'nia Falbo and Megan Buja finished 54th and 57th, respectively.

Capitals: Based on comments from general manager George McPhee, there doesn't appear to be much optimism that veteran defenseman Tom Poti will ever return from a groin strain that has sidelined him for more than a year. "Tom's been working at it and improving, but I don't know if he'll ever get to the point where he can play again," McPhee said Tuesday. "As I said in the summer, we weren't counting on it."
