This year's St. Brendan Cup Regatta, Shearwater Sailing Club's 12th such event, was a challenge nearly equal to that faced by its legendary namesake St. Brendan the Navigator.In light air and a strong ebb current, there were plenty of problems for the 71-boat PHRF, MORC and cruising one-design fleet on last Saturday's 14-mile course back and forth across the bay around government marks."It was very easy to get in trouble by not watching the current," said PHRF A-2 winner Scott Allan, who sailed Jerry and Nancy Cann's new Melges 24 Crusader Rabbit to a 4 1/2 -minute victory in the 18-boat PHRF A-2 class.

Last weekend was a good one for sailing, as the turnout for Shearwater Sailing Club's annual St. Brendan Regatta proved.Saturday's solid fleet of 58 starters in six PHRF divisions and two cruising one-design classes enjoyed a windy romp on the bay with the largest boats sailing a 22.4-mile government mark course with a lot of windward-leeward work, while the smaller contenders sailed a similar 13.8-mile version.In lighter air Sunday, most of the 37 registrants in the day's three classes, J/35 and J/30 one-designs and MORC, showed up for a two-race series of shorter drop-mark courses, made challenging in shifty breeze of variable velocity, along with strong tidal currents.

Roddy Doyle's latest Dublin comedy, "When Brendan Met Trudy," poses as the story of a wild, eccentric love match but is really about a match made in limbo. Brendan (Peter McDonald) lackadaisically instructs derisive high school students in history and literature. He lives for the movies he sees after school, from "The African Queen" to "Once Upon A Time in the West." Trudy (Flora Montgomery), a free spirit who briefly pretends to be a Montessori teacher, likes color movies that don't star Emma Thompson.

For the first time in more than a decade, Calvert Hall left Archbishop Curley in disbelief. When Smith Brendan pinned Chad Smith in the second-to-last match yesterday, the No. 13 Cardinals clinched their first wrestling victory over the No. 12 Friars in 11 years, 39-29. "I am not sure the last time we have beaten Curley. It has been awhile," said Calvert Hall coach Keith Norris. " ... This is a nice accomplishment for the Calvert Hall wrestling program." The road win over the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association champion was monumental for a hot Calvert Hall team (10-1-1 overall, 2-1-1 conference)

One by one, Johns Hopkins senior co-captains Brendan Shook, Brandon Testa and Shawn Nadelen were asked what was instrumental in bringing them to Homewood Field four years ago. The answers may have varied some, but the core to each was the chance to work with Hopkins alum Dave Pietramala, the team's defensive coordinator under Tony Seaman at the time and a three-time first-team All-America defenseman in his playing days. When Pietramala accepted the head coaching job at Cornell in 1998, he had to leave behind the recruiting class he played a big role in assembling.

Denver coach Bill Tierney has a tongue-in-cheek answer when asked about the team's subpar showing on faceoffs with top-seeded Duke and senior extraordinaire Brendan Fowler awaiting on Saturday. “We're going to prepare the exact same way we prepared for Rutgers, North Carolina and Drexel,” Tierney said Tuesday morning during a conference call before the semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. “We're going to assume that we're going to lose every faceoff and then go from there.” Clearly, that's not how Tierney truly feels about the fifth-seeded Pioneers' faceoff unit, which has won just 47.3 percent (194-of-410)

To hear John Danowski explain it, he had no idea what he was getting in Brendan Fowler. In fact, the Duke coach had not met Fowler until August of his freshman year. That is because Fowler had not contacted the Blue Devils coaching staff during the recruiting process. The faceoff specialist had simply applied and been accepted to the university on his own, and Danowski confirmed Fowler's matriculation only when he had contacted the coach of Chaminade (N.Y.) High School - Fowler's alma mater - in May of the athlete's senior year.

All season, Syracuse has dealt with a decided disadvantage at faceoffs. So why should Monday's NCAA tournament final against seventh-seeded Duke at Lincoln Financial Field here be any different? The top-seeded Orange (16-3) will attempt to capture the program's NCAA-leading 11th national championship despite the presence of Blue Devils junior Brendan Fowler, who has won 64.1 percent (319 of 498) of his draws this season and passed Bryant sophomore Kevin Massa for the most faceoff wins in a single season with his 16 of 31 performance in the team's 16-14 win against Cornell in Saturday's semifinal.

Brendan Fowler won more than 55 percent of his faceoffs and scooped up at least 34 ground balls in each of his first two seasons at Duke, but still was not making much of a dent in terms of playing time. Then again, considering that C.J. Costabile - who won 53 percent of his draws and collected 376 ground balls en route to being named Division I's top midfielder - was atop the depth chart, Fowler was not fretting about his opportunities. “C.J. just brought a different dynamic as a faceoff guy,” Fowler recalled Wednesday afternoon.
