When Ebony Johnson learned that she and her softball team would spend MLB All-Star Week in Minneapolis, she admitted to being a little more excited than her players. "They're just 11 and 12 years old," she said. "So many of them haven't left the city. Some of them haven't left the state. Some of them have never flown before. But they are very excited about it. " Johnson coaches the 12-and-under softball team affiliated with the Orioles' Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program, a youth outreach initiative that promotes interest in baseball.

The Poly girls and No. 7 Digital Harbor boys cruised to team titles at the Baltimore City track and field championships Saturday at Mervo. This was the first-ever team title for Poly's girls. Coach Latoya Brown's team finished with 121 points, beating out long-time Baltimore City powerhouse Western (104). "I tried to put people in places where I know they could score points," Brown said. "I told them to believe in themselves and go out and do it. " Poly dominated the field events, taking the top three spots in both the high jump and triple jump plus first and third in the long jump - which gave the Engineers 64 points.

Since Baltimore City teams began competing for state championships in the 1992-93 school year, city girls basketball has been well-represented in the state tournament, but never the way it is this year. For the first time, three city teams -- City College, Western and Southside -- have advanced to the state tournament. Twice before, the city has sent two teams in a single year but never three. Fourteenth-ranked City and No. 18 Southside have never been to states. Fifth-ranked Western makes its ninth appearance in the tournament, which begins this afternoon at UMBC's RAC Arena.

Despite Friday's two-point loss to Northwestern, the Masonville Cove Academy boys basketball team has enjoyed unprecedented success for a first-year varsity program without any seniors. The Bayhawks, which won a 69-64 game over Woodlawn on Monday, rode a seven-game winning streak into the Northwestern game that surprised even coach William Russell. "I had no idea we could play this well," Russell said. "The expectation was that we'd take a few bumps and get welcomed to the varsity leagues.

Two Baltimore teams have joined Back On My Feet, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit that assists homeless men and women who train to run a marathon - and rebuild their lives in the process. The organization uses running to teach clients goal-setting, responsibility and perseverance, said Barry M. Smith, a counselor and manager at Helping Up Mission. The other team is based at the Maryland Center for Veterans. On Friday, their dedication was put to the test as seven mission clients and about a dozen volunteers met for a 5:30 a.m. run in their third week of training.

In November, right after final cuts and before the first practice, Lake Clifton boys basketball coach Herman "Tree" Harried sat down with his newly assembled group to discuss what would lie ahead. The talk consisted of individual job descriptions and an overview of team goals. He warned his players about the long hours of practice and the demanding expectations: hard work, conditioning, discipline, constructive criticism and then more of the same the next day. "I try to discourage them as much as possible," said Harried, a 12th-year coach and a Dunbar graduate who played at Syracuse and professionally overseas.

One of the most intriguing games at this week's Basketball Academy will match the No. 5 City boys against No. 2 St. Frances at 8 p.m. tomorrow at Morgan State. Maryland-bound St. Frances guard Sean Mosley has been scoring at will this season. What some might not know is that the Knights have a standout swing player of their own in 6-foot-6 forward C.J. Fair. The sophomore can do damage on the wing, where he can shoot jump shots over smaller opponents or drive to the basket. With Mosley and Fair garnering most of the attention, the outcome might come down to how well the role players perform.

In a better time than this, Denny Wisner was the All-American kid. He played quarterback for City College long ago or the day before yesterday, I forget which, because they tend to run together at moments like this. He was talented, and the girls all loved him, and such a life should last forever.But now, the impossible news arrives from his son, and from telephone calls from his old teammates, that he's died of a stomach infection down in Florida, a place where nobody could have known what it used to be like to be young, to be playing quarterback for Baltimore City College, and to be named Denny Wisner.

Baltimore, your name is mud among sports fans around the country. How does that feel this morning? What a lucky break that this city has only two major professional teams, because both of them shamed themselves this week. Imagine if Baltimore was represented in every sport; the embarrassment would be multiplied. So, maybe we should be thankful that we only have the Orioles and Ravens disgracing our reputation nationwide. Still, we do have to live with the sights and sounds that outsiders currently associate with the town that they once associated with "Johnny U" and Lenny Moore, Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson, Earl Monroe and Gus Johnson: The Ravens players melting down in the final minutes Monday night and in the locker room after the loss to the New England Patriots - accusing officials of stealing the game from them, alleging that the NFL was conspiring against them and for the Patriots, calling out an official they said insulted them (but forgetting to mention that they had started the round of insults themselves)

Debra Miller doesn't hesitate to correct people when they make assumptions about her new Baltimore women's football team. "They always say, `Oh, flag football? Two-hand touch? That's nice,'" said Miller, 47, who teaches middle school in Bel Air and has played tackle football for seven years. "They just can't picture women playing tackle. They don't believe that women can hit." But hit they do. Yesterday, about 20 women came to Forge Field off York Road north of the city line to try out for the Baltimore Nighthawks, the area's newest tackle football team.
