One of the things Franklin senior attackman Ben Kaestner enjoys most is helping others. He has bagged food for the Reisterstown Crisis Center, participated in the Crop Walk for Hunger and was a volunteer cleanup worker for Historic Glyndon Inc. As a team captain, Kaestner's final lacrosse season has been ideal because the Indians have a roster filled with underclassmen who have followed his lead. After losing their first three games, the Indians have won three straight to even their record at 5-5. Kaestner, who leads the team with 21 goals and 13 assists, is expecting the team to continue the positive surge with the playoffs fast approaching.

One month after saying the Baltimore Country Club would likely host the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship in 2011, tournament officials have moved the golf event to the historic Westchester Country Club in New York. The change in venue, announced Friday, ends the tournament's association with BCC, which staged it from 2007 through 2009. This year's championship was held at TPC Potomac and Avenel Farm, in the Washington suburbs, with the understanding that it would return to Baltimore for the final year of its 5-year run. But when tournament officials abruptly changed the date from late September to mid-August, in an apparent effort to boost attendance, BCC agreed to part ways because its agreement stipulated a September/October timeframe.

The Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship, scheduled to be played in late September at Baltimore Country Club, announced today that the event will move to Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y., for 2011 because it was given an earlier date on the Champions Tour schedule. The final major championship of the Champions Tour season is now scheduled for Aug. 15-21, 2011, and it will be the first time Westchester Country Club has hosted a major tournament. For 41 years it had hosted a PGA Tour event from 1967 until 2007.

The PGA Tour's decision to move next year's Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship from Baltimore Country Club in Timonium to the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm did not surprise BCC general manager Michael Stott, but he has mixed feelings about it leaving. The move, which the tour announced Wednesday, was first broached to Stott shortly after the 2009 event ended last month. Jay Haas came from behind to beat Tom Watson at Five Farms. Stott graciously accepted the tour's decision to leave Baltimore and then return in 2011, with Constellation Energy remaining as title sponsor.

For all but one week of the year, the historic East Course at Baltimore Country Club is a lush, well-manicured private sanctuary for members, a tough but fair test that everyone from scratch players to those who shoot in triple digits can appreciate. But during the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship, which begins Thursday in Timonium, the iconic club long known as Five Farms is transformed. This lovely octogenarian that was laid out by legendary golf architect A.W. Tillinghast in the 1920s and renovated four years ago by Kentucky designer Keith Foster has a bit of a modern-day beast added to its timeless beauty.
