As a starting hitter on Severna Park High's volleyball team last fall, Jen Conner helped the Falcons (19-0) capture the Class 4A state title.When Conner enters her junior year in September, the 5-foot-9 16-year-old will be one of four returning starters from that squad. And if her summer league success on the Capital Volleyball Club's 16-and-under Blue team is any indication, county rivals may be in for a tougher time than they had last year.In the recent Junior Olympic National Championships in Albuquerque, N.M., Conner and Severna Park teammate Julie Kasprzak, also entering her junior year, helped the Capital Club's 16 Blue team place 29th in a 64-team field.

With a 6-5 win over Navy on Friday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, No. 5 Johns Hopkins won its third game in seven days, and coach Dave Pietramala said afterward that the team is physically exhausted. “Three games in seven days is a lot,” he said. “… I think we need a rest, and I think we need it right now. We made a decision that we would give these guys two days off. Do you want to prepare for [Wednesday's home game vs.] Villanova on two days? No, you don't, but they play tomorrow.

Navy coach Paul Johnson laughed when asked about yesterday's Blue-Gold spring game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. "I think everything that could happen in a game did," Johnson said. "It was a good learning experience." The Midshipmen are one of only three NCAA teams to never play an overtime game, but this preseason scrimmage went to the extra period. Adam Young kicked a 28-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime to give the White team a 26-23 victory - a win sealed when the Blue team's Chase Hobby missed a 37-yard field-goal attempt on the next series.

A year ago, when Morgan State was a perennial Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference doormat, the opposition lined up in droves for a chance to take on the Bears. "We could have played 22 games last season," coach Donald Hill-Eley said. "Eighteen people wanted to meet us early." No more. After a 7-5 record that ended a 23-year Morgan losing streak, potential foes have changed their thinking and, so far, the 2003 Bears have to be content with a 10-game schedule. "It's hard to get games now," Hill-Eley said.

There seemed to be a common theme that came out of the Navy spring football game yesterday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium: The Midshipmen have some work to do before the season begins Sept. 3 against Maryland. Navy lost 36 seniors from last year's team that went 10-2, won the Emerald Bowl and gave the school its best season in 99 years. That's why the Midshipmen will need many underclassmen to step up and fill holes. But there were plenty of struggles in yesterday's spring game, with the Blue team pulling out a 9-7 win over the White team.

Coming into spring football practice, Navy's Noah Copeland and Travis Bridges were relatively unknown commodities. Copeland, a sophomore fullback, had played exclusively on special teams during his first season at the academy. Bridges, a junior noseguard, had spent his first two seasons in Annapolis trying unsuccessfully to make his way up the depth chart on an experienced and talented offensive line. After three weeks of practice and Saturday's spring game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Copeland and Bridges are among the bright spots for a team looking to reverse course after last season's disappointing 5-7 record, the first losing mark for the Midshipmen in nine years.

The Navy football team doesn't play for real for another four months. That hardly meant Friday night's Blue-Gold spring game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial didn't matter, though, especially at the most important position on offense, where junior Kriss Proctor is the new starting quarterback after a record-setting run by Ricky Dobbs. Amid a steady rain more suitable for a raw fall evening than a spring game, Proctor played the first three series in a 7-6 victory for the Blue team comprising starters and second-teamers.

The Orioles blew another one, stumbled into the division cellar, and I'm not sure things are about to get better. Talk about Oriole Tragic. It doesn't usually take much to push me into a stage of reflection. Quick example: Reports this week indicated that the Washington Nationals are drawing just 9,000 nightly television viewers in the D.C. area, which makes the Nats about as popular as a steak-knife infomercial. You have to hope there's something wrong with the numbers, because 9,000 is embarrassingly low. For comparison, on YouTube yesterday the hot titles all dwarfed the poor Nats' ratings, including "How to build a working rocketship" (43,834 views)

BOSTON -- The frustration level wasn't nearly the same as it was the last time they lost a series to the Boston Red Sox, though the discontent was still palpable. And as the Orioles packed their bags in the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park yesterday, there remained a feeling that they had let another opportunity slip away. No, there wasn't a controversial pitching change or a blown five-run ninth-inning lead as there was in the ill-fated final game of the series here in mid-May. Instead, the Orioles were agitated by plate umpire Rob Drake's strike zone.
