What might be more of a story is how a four-period day in school versus a seven-period day affects the grade-point average of student athletes. Think about it. You have to worry about keeping two major subjects up and the other two are electives - art, gym [or] music.

The academic status of former UMBC basketball player Sonique Nixon was reported incorrectly in last Thursday's Sun. After the fall 1993 semester, Mr. Nixon's grade-point average fell below the school's newer, more stringent standards, and he was ruled ineligible and placed on academic probation for the spring 1994 semester. He remained a student at the school and is currently in good standing academically at UMBC.The Sun regrets the error.

A coach with his priorities in order leads off this Sunday's sports smorgasbrowse.North County boys basketball coach Brad Wilson should be commended for a noble move this past week. Wilson learned at the start of the week that three senior starters will be academically ineligible when report cards come out Tuesday.Instead of allowing the trio to play until then, Wilson told them goodbye before last week's games. In the first two games without the trio, the Knights lost, 49-36, at Severna Park on Tuesday and lost Friday to Meade, 67-53.

A lot of kids probably hoped today would never arrive. But report card day is here.It's bad enough worrying about what Mom and Dad will say and do when you take the report card home. But for a student/athlete, there's potential double trouble.Those who don't bring home at least a 1.6 grade-point average will be placed on academic probation, meaning they can practice, but notparticipate, in the games.For those student/athletes, it's not only disappointing mom and dad, but the team as well.

The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association Board of Control approved the open-tournament format for all sports, excluding football, beginning in the fall of 1995.

A 20-year-old Pikesville man was shot and killed yesterday after he and a stranger stared at each other at a downtown Baltimore intersection, police said. Marshall H. Contee, a former Randallstown High School football star, was driving his pickup truck about 12:10 a.m. when the shooting occurred, police said.

Don Gregg called it unlikely. Little did the Severna Park coach know how soon his words would come true.Entering last night's game against North County, Severna Park had a goals yield of five in eight games. The school record of six was set by the 1988 team, which posted 11 shutouts in 16 games."It's possible we can break the record," Gregg said before the game, "but certainly not likely."Less than six minutes into the game, North County's Emanuel Uche scored -- goal No. 6 against Severna Park.

One of the truly ugliest high school baseball games of the spring was played in Millersville yesterday as No. 12-ranked Chesapeake hammered No. 10 Old Mill, 16-6.The victory gave Chesapeake (11-6 overall, 6-2 league) sole possession of first in the county's North Division, a game ahead of Old Mill (11-7, 5-3) with two regular season games left.Defending county champion Old Mill lost for the sixth time in nine games.Senior third baseman Mark Campbell got his first varsity pitching start for pitching-short Old Mill and won't soon forget it. He took the brunt of Chesapeake's assault, giving up 10 runs and 14 hits, eight for extra bases, in six innings.
