Former Glenelg standout Robby Creese has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year for indoor track. From Mount Airy, Creese anchored the winning distance medley relay at the conference championship meet at Nebraska over the weekend, and he also finished third in the mile (4 minutes, 7.01 seconds). Creese is just the third Nittany Lion to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors in Penn State track and field/cross country program history. He was also featured recently in Sports Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd after setting American Junior and NCAA records in the 1,000 metersĀ at the Nittany Lions Challenge.

It took only the first release of the Bowl Championship Series ratings this week for a prominent coach to voice displeasure. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville's once-beaten Tigers are sitting at No. 4, a notch above undefeated West Virginia, but he doesn't like his chances at a national title because of the ratings system. "Every year, it's going to be like this," said Tuberville, whose team gave Florida its first loss last weekend. "Until we get a playoff, the SEC's going to be on the outside looking in."

There was a reunion of sorts for nearly 9,000 Bengalis yesterday at the Baltimore Convention Center. At the ethnic group's 24th annual North American Bengali Conference, there were vendors' booths, movie screenings and moderated discussions about the culture. But for many, the most important business of the weekend event, which ends today, was catching up with old friends. Madhumanti Maitra, a popular news anchor in Calcutta, was walking quickly across the convention center when she spotted a familiar face out of the corner of her eye and stopped to give Potomac resident Dipankar Bhaumik a hug. The pair occasionally meet in India, but they hadn't seen each other in about a year.

The Houston Texans lost their top tackler two weeks ago when middle linebacker Brian Cushing went down with a season-ending knee injury. A week later, they were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers, 42-24, on their home field as Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes, the Texans couldn't run the football and their special teams faltered. Earlier that day, the Ravens outlasted the mistake-prone Dallas Cowboys, 31-29. In the process, they lost their leading tackler (Ray Lewis) and best cornerback (Lardarius Webb)

Two months ago, the McDonogh girls lacrosse players never thought about going through the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference regular season unbeaten. That seemed a high goal for a team that had to rebuild a good bit, but yesterday the No. 2 Eagles (17-1) put the finishing touch on a 12-0 A Conference record with a 9-6 win over No. 7 John Carroll in Bel Air. "It's amazing," senior midfielder Kirstyn Atkinson said. "At the beginning of the season - not saying that I doubted us but - it was a big change from last year.

North Carroll girls basketball coach Bernie Koontz knows it's simply a matter of time before his team celebrates its next conference victory. Last night against visiting Urbana, however, the Panthers followed a familiar story line - poor shooting, spotty rebounding and yet another loss. Their 64-31 defeat was their 18th straight in Central Maryland Conference play. "I think a lot of it right now is psychological," Koontz said. "They're playing some of these teams that they know beat them last year.

Severn lacrosse coach John Tucker has led his fair share of top programs and athletes. While he was coaching at Gilman and Loyola, Tucker guided four teams to Baltimore private schools conference titles - a feat that usually means that team is considered the best high school squad in the country by lacrosse aficionados. On those teams, he has coached some of the best players to ever step on an area lacrosse field, including recent Princeton standouts Ryan Boyle and Damian Davis at Gilman.

Doug Wojcik took a moment Thursday to once again size up Baltimore Arena - the musty throwback of a building he played in as Navy point guard alongside David Robinson 27 years ago - and imagine the weekend's possibilities. The College of Charleston team Wojcik coaches is seeded sixth in the four-day Colonial Athletic Association tournament, which begins Friday night with the play-in game between Hofstra and UNC Wilmington. Could he even imagine the possibility of Cougars fans rushing onto the newly refinished court Monday night to celebrate a championship victory - and the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament that comes with it?

It's time for the second installment of everyone's favorite made-for-television college basketball miniseries, the ACC-Big LTC East Challenge, and just as with last year's premiere edition, the reviews on its worth are mixed from the conferences' coaches.The ESPN-generated series, which matches the top eight seeds in the Big East against their opposite numbers in the Atlantic Coast Conference, was designed to put to rest the controversy over which conference is the best.Since last year's series ended in a flat-footed 4-4 tie, with many of the games played in half-empty arenas, very little was settled, including whether there is any benefit to playing the games at all.The 16 coaches who will participate in next week's four doubleheaders at Richmond, Va., Syracuse, N.Y., the Capital Centre and Chapel Hill, N.C., came together electronically yesterday for a telephone news conference to plug the series.
