My wife and I live in Abingdon and visited Savannah, Ga., in June. On our way to the airport to return home, we stopped to visit Bonaventure Cemetery, made famous in John Berendt's book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The cemetery is bordered by the Wilmington River. As we walked away from the river and headed back to the cemetery entrance, I turned to look back. The majestic oak trees covered with hanging Spanish moss and the dappled shadows on the ground made an image that captured our impressions of Savannah and the South.

When Northwestern's 31-game winning streak was stopped by Duke a little more than a week ago, it left just one team in Division I women's lacrosse with an undefeated record - St. Bonaventure. Yesterday, the Bonnies' dream season continued. Nicole Motondo and Katelyn Faas each scored four goals as host St. Bonaventure (12-0, 3-0 Atlantic 10 Conference) upset No. 9 Richmond, 12-10. With the win, the Bonnies took sole possession of first place in the conference and extended the nation's longest winning streak to 13 games.

Craig King admits that playing collegiate baseball in upstate New York for St. Bonaventure University in April isn't exactly an ideal situation. "It's cold here and it's not like playing in Baltimore," said the junior second baseman from Cardinal Gibbons. "But I think warm weather all the time and it helps me a lot." It doesn't hurt either that his home runs are up over last year (three compared with two last season) and his batting average has climbed to .348 over .336 last season. The three homers tie him for the team lead, he is third in batting average, third in slugging percentage (.545)
