The Bel Air baseball team once again - as it has done throughout the season - cut it close but found a way to win Saturday at Ripken Stadium in the Class 3A state championship. The Bobcats beat La Plata from Charles County, 3-2, to win the second state title in school history. "This is just phenomenal," Bel Air coach John Swanson said. "La Plata definitely came out to play. It was back and forth, and we made a couple of key plays. It could have gone either way. " Three defensive miscues for La Plata in the top of the second led to a run for Bel Air in the top of the second inning.

Wednesday night's first-round meeting between No. 4 seed Frostburg State and No. 5 seed Mary Washington in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament is a re-match of a contest that the Bobcats won, 13-11, a week ago. That might be an advantage for Frostburg State, but coach Tommy Pearce said the advantage is more mutual than one-sided. “We get to see them on film against us, but they also get to watch film of us,” he said Tuesday. “So we're both learning from this film, and they're seeing some of the same stuff that we're seeing.

Frostburg State took all the guesswork out of its placement in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament, thrashing Wesley, 17-9, last Saturday to capture the No. 4 seed. Not only did the Bobcats improve to 11-5 overall and 3-3 in the league, but they earned the right to play host to Mary Washington (8-6, 2-4) in a first-round game in the conference tournament for the first time in school history. Had the team lost to the Wolverines Saturday, Frostburg State still would have earned the No. 4 seed thanks to its head-to-head tiebreaker over the Eagles.

Frostburg State has already accomplished a school first by cementing a spot in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament, but the program has its eyes on a bigger prize. If the Bobcats can defeat Wesley this Saturday, they will clinch the No. 4 seed in the six-team tournament and host a first-round contest. It's a goal that the team and coach Tommy Pearce have aspired to all season. “That's where we want to be,” Pearce said Friday morning. “We think we should be right in that discussion with the teams that are getting the No. 4 seed in the playoffs.

Frostburg State's first victory in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) was a meaningful step for the program. But the team - which is playing in its third season in the league - is in position to qualify for its first conference tournament. At 9-5 overall and 1-3 in the CAC, the Bobcats are currently jockeying with Mary Washington for the No. 4 seed in the six-team tournament. And they can further pad their cushion when the Eagles (7-5 overall and 1-3 in league) visit Frostburg on Wednesday evening.

The sixth-seeded Mount St. Mary's women's basketball team saw its Northeast Conference tournament run come to an end with a 63-56 defeat at the hands of top-seeded Quinnipiac in the semifinals Wednesday night at the TD Bank Sports Center. Jacqueline Brewer hit a career-best six 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 20 points for the Mount.  The Mount (15-16), playing in the NEC semifinals for the first time since 2001, led 34-29 at halftime. Quinnipiac (29-2) increased its lead to six points with six minutes to go in the game before a layup by Rachel Mathews and Brewer's sixth 3-pointer cut the Mount's deficit to 53-52.

Thursday's entry is the third installment of a series taking a look at each of the eight Division III programs in this state according to their order of finish from last season. The Sun's lacrosse preview is slated to be published on Friday, Feb. 8. This is Frostburg State's turn. Overview: After establishing a foundation with six wins in the program's first year at the Division III level, the Bobcats took a punch to the gut last season, ending with a 2-15 record. A spate of injuries - especially those of the season-ending variety - took a toll on the roster, but coach Tommy Pearce blamed himself for not strengthening the team's depth.

Frostburg State's season opener against Catholic is 16 days away, and that delayed start may actually benefit the team. That's because the competition to designate a starting goalkeeper is too close to call. Junior Tyler Haines and freshmen Taylor Schmitz, Mack Schwarz and Tom Kraemer have yet to create any room from the others, making it more interesting - and potentially more difficult - for coach Tommy Pearce and his staff. “We've got three freshman goalies that are good,” he said.

Sophie Pruden scored a career-high 23 points to lead the visiting St.Mary's women's basketball team to an 87-82 triple-overtime win over Division II Washington Adventist on Tuesday night. Pruden shot 10-for-19 from the field, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked a career-best three shots.  The Seahawks (5-3) outscored the Shock 10-5 in the third five-minute overtime period to seal the win and end their three-game skid. Aura Payne (Severn) made the first of two free throws to keep it at a two-possession game with 24 seconds left in the third overtime.  Washington Adventist took two shot attempts in the final 15 seconds but both were off the mark.
