Michael Calderone Archbishop Spalding The Cavaliers won their second straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title without a real superstar and after losing three of their top six runners from last year's championship team. In his 14th season as coach at Archbishop Spalding, Calderone said he doesn't want to bank on having one big-time runner because it's a team sport. That's why the Cavaliers overcame the loss of the three runners from last year, as well as one of their top runners suffering an injury about 10 days before this year's title race.

MEXICO CITY -- Felipe Calderon, a Harvard-educated conservative, was declared the winner of Mexico's presidential race yesterday, but the celebration was marred by his leftist rival's vow to contest the result in court and in the streets. Calderon, who at 43 would be Mexico's youngest president, won the official vote count by half a percentage point, 243,934 votes out of nearly 41 million, over former Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in a bitterly battled election. At a victory party, Calderon called for the country to put aside its differences.

MEXICO CITY - Amid broad outrage over the slaying of a 14-year-old kidnap victim, Mexican President Felipe Calderon urged Congress yesterday to toughen punishments for convicted kidnappers to include up to life in prison. The proposal would make kidnapping in some cases subject to the harshest criminal sentence in Mexico, which formally abolished its long-dormant death penalty three years ago. Kidnappers currently face up to 60 years in prison, or 70 years when they kill the victim. Murderers face a possible maximum of 60 years.

MEXICO CITY -- Mexicans braced for a protracted Florida 2000-style vote-counting battle yesterday in their deadlocked presidential contest. Conservative Felipe Calderon maintained a thin lead, but leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador demanded to see all the ballots. With more than 98.2 percent of the preliminary vote counted from Sunday's unprecedented, too-close-to-call balloting, Calderon held a 1 percentage point advantage yesterday - 36.37 percent to 35.36 percent. Calderon's margin held steady throughout the day of counting.

MEXICO CITY -- Felipe Calderon, a diminutive but determined 44-year-old conservative, was inaugurated yesterday as president of a deeply divided Mexico, amid fisticuffs between rival lawmakers and raucous protests in the country's Legislative Palace. Leaders of the largest opposition party in Congress, the leftist Democratic Revolution Party or PRD, say Calderon's election was illegitimate, and they battled conservative congressional deputies and senators on the floor most of the week.

MEXICO CITY -- Felipe Calderon takes office today as one of Mexico's weakest presidents, hemmed in by ruthless drug lords, industry monopolists, tax cheats and a bare-knuckled leftist movement that threatens to block his every move. Calderon's only chance of fixing the shopping list of Mexico's social and economic ills is with a cooperative, well-managed Congress. But lawmakers have taken over the lower house, sleeping overnight in chairs and aisles, pledging to disrupt his nationally televised inauguration.

Outfielder Brian Jordan and the Texas Rangers agreed yesterday to a one-year contract that guarantees him $1,375,000. The former All-Star from Milford Mill hit .299 with six homers and 28 RBIs in 66 games last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers before surgery July 11 for tendinitis in his left knee. He is expected to be at full strength when spring training starts. "Last year, the surgery was a tough decision, but I had to make a decision based on my career," he said. "It was a decision to get healthy, and start over with a new team at 100 percent."

MEXICO CITY -- The number of Mexican soldiers slain has jumped drastically since President Felipe Calderon began using the army to battle drug traffickers, records show. Since December, when Calderon began the campaign, 89 soldiers have been reported killed, compared with fewer than a dozen from January through November of 2006, according to army records provided to the Times. The escalation of attacks on soldiers has come as 12,700 troops man roadside checkpoints and patrol cities in nine Mexican states where rival drug gangs battle for control of smuggling routes.

MERIDA, Mexico -- President Bush wrapped up his Latin America tour yesterday with a pledge to Mexican President Felipe Calderon that he would seek an accord that occupies the middle ground between amnesty for illegal residents and booting out more than 12 million people. "Amnesty is not going to fly. There is not going to be automatic citizenship; it just won't work," Bush said. "People in the United States don't support that, and neither do I.

MEXICO CITY -- The nation's top electoral court declared conservative candidate Felipe Calderon president-elect yesterday, but the decision is unlikely to resolve a political crisis sparked by the muddled outcome of the July 2 contest. The ruling approved unanimously by the seven judges of the Federal Electoral Tribunal is final and cannot be appealed. But losing leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was not expected to concede defeat. In recent days he has vowed to draft a new constitution and create a parallel government.

MEXICO CITY -- Mexico's top electoral court announced yesterday that a partial recount of the votes in this country's disputed presidential election found no evidence of widespread fraud, a ruling that placed conservative Felipe Calderon tantalizingly close to victory. In a 7-0 ruling, the Federal Electoral Tribunal said it had found only minor mathematical and administrative errors in the initial vote count of the July 2 election. The tribunal said yesterday that its recount subtracted just 4,183 votes from Calderon's margin of victory, reducing it to about 240,000 over leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

MEXICO CITY -- Rejecting the principal demand of the leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico's highest electoral court ordered yesterday only a limited recount of votes in the disputed July 2 race for president. Outside the tribunal building, Lopez Obrador supporters called the judges "rats," "traitors" and "sell-outs." They vowed to expand protests that have paralyzed downtown Mexico City. And one party leader warned ominously that the tenor of the demonstrations might change.
