Your recent article about Babe Ruth incorrectly implied that the Baltimore Orioles stopped in Fayetteville, N.C., en route to spring training in Florida ( "Babe Ruth's first in flight in Fayetteville," Feb. 27). In 1914, only a few baseball teams traveled as far south as Florida for spring training. Fayetteville, not Florida, was the Orioles' destination, and it was also the team's spring training headquarters during Babe Ruth's rookie professional season. The article also included a clipping with a photograph purported to be "the first picture ever made of Babe Ruth as a professional ball player.

River Hill All-Metro forward Alex Hamer did her part, winning the right side before sending a perfect cross to the middle with less than three minutes left at Centennial. She knew exactly who would be there to handle the rest. It was junior midfielder Jessica Hopkins who made the perfect run before emphatically heading home the difference as the No. 2 Hawks were able to withstand a considerable challenge to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind win over the Eagles in Howard County. River Hill improved to 8-2 and 7-0 in league play, while the Eagles fell to 5-4-1 and 4-3. The game was played on even terms most of the way with the Eagles taking a 1-0 lead early in the second half before Hamer and Hopkins dominated the final minutes to rally the Hawks.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall. He scored a 49-second victory at the Seahawk Invitational last week and posted another big win in Saturday's Howard County Invitational at Centennial. The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

So OK, it is exactly 100 years since Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" was premiered in Paris, causing "The Riot of Spring" because so many people in the audience hated it. Since the anniversary date coincides, conveniently, with my Midweek Madness featurette, I had to find at least a slightly nutty way to mark the occasion.

By winning the 126-pound state championship in Class 4A-3A on Saturday, Kraisser became only the fifth wrestler to win four individual titles over a career. The senior went 36-3 this season to finish with a 152-6 record. His coach, Dave Roogow, says Kraisser "doesn't really feel the pressure because he really does treat every match like his opponent is in the state finals. " Through four years Kraisser has won every match in the state tournament by major decision, technical fall or pin. He carries a 3.5 GPA and has signed to wrestle at North Carolina.

The ideas, expressed in 100 words or less, can address "musical style, or could feature a particular instrument, local icon, location or historical figure," according to the press release issued Wednesday.  If your idea is accepted, you will be invited to the premiere of the encore it inspired and will receive a signed copy of the score.

Western's basketball team was just a little too quick for Centennial in Thursday night's state Class 3A girls basketball semifinal. The No. 7 Doves pressed their way to a 40-35 victory at UMBC's RAC Arena after the No. 15 Eagles clawed back from a 12-0 opening deficit. "We wanted to play an up-tempo style of game and see if they could" handle the press, Doves coach Tiffany Silver said. "Once we realized they had a little trouble with it, we wanted to stay with it." The press forced many of Centennial's 38 turnovers and that, combined with the early deficit, proved too much for the Eagles (17-6)

One of the area's best volleyball programs has announced a change in its coaching staff for next year, but the replacement will be well known to area volleyball fans. Larry Schofield, the varsity coach at Centennial, will step down after leading the program for seven years. He will be replaced by Mike Bossom, who coached at Centennial from 1994 to 2005, and won eight state titles at the school. Bossom is leaving Goucher College, where he was the head volleyball coach. “I just felt like my mental state wasn't where it needed to be,” Schofield said.

By the middle of November, the Johns Hopkins football team had completed a perfect 10-0 regular season, captured a fifth straight Centennial Conference title and earned a third consecutive trip to the Division III playoffs. But all those good vibes evaporated in a 29-24 first-round loss to Wesley at Homewood Field, a game in which the Blue Jays surrendered the decisive 33-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left. Junior running back Brandon Cherry said he needed just a couple days to put the loss behind him. But the Parkville native and Boys' Latin graduate acknowledged that he watched the game several times to see what he could have done differently.

"This started a year ago," Ann Giroux said, surrounded by gift bags and silent auction items in her Greenway mansion with its tulip-lined walkway overlooking Sherwood Gardens. Giroux was referring to the planning for the Champagne and Tulips Gala on Saturday, May 10, a $200-a-ticket, black-tie fundraiser for the gardens, one of Baltimore's biggest seasonal tourist attractions. But she could just as easily have been referring to Guilford's ambitious centennial celebration that began last year.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

Standing in a crowd with a couple hundred of her Delta Sigma Theta sisters, Ruth Travis watched as a flotilla escorted the sorority's torch to the Inner Harbor Friday for a centennial celebration to honor the women's service to Maryland and the world. From their first march on Washington during women's suffrage in 1913 to their ongoing Park Heights mentoring sessions, the women engage in service activities centered on economic empowerment, education, international involvement, political awareness and physical and mental health.

After escaping with a 9-8 overtime decision over Centennial Conference rival Ursinus on Wednesday night, No. 6 Washington College went through equal amounts of relief and confidence. “From a coaching standpoint, a huge sigh of relief,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Thursday afternoon. “I think from the players' standpoint, there was an excitement. We definitely dodged a bullet against a very good Ursinus team that played very well last night. But at the end of the day, it was a little more excitement than relief because we found ourselves in a dogfight right from the beginning and found a way to win at the end when it looked like we weren't going to. So I think it was a great experience that will help build the program and the team.” The Shoremen improved to 10-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, further solidifying their grip on first place in the league.

Pete Hughes earned his second state title in 32 years of coaching when Long Reach edged Centennial by six points for the Class 3A championship. He also guided the Hammond girls to a title in 1993, but Hughes really took pride in how hard the Lightning worked this winter. This was the team's first state title in indoor track. Long Reach really came on late, winning the Howard County and region titles before getting past Centennial for the state crown. "The key this year was senior leadership," Hughes said.
