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 meters 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."

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.

Halfway through its Colonial Athletic Association schedule, Towson is 3-0 in the league and tied with No. 12 Penn State for first place in the conference. As euphoric as the team's rebound from an 0-3 start may seem, coach Shawn Nadelen said the players aren't giving into the temptation of assuming that they have locked up a berth in the four-team CAA tournament. “Being 3-0 definitely helps our chances, but I think the CAA is still wide open,” he said Monday evening. “There are a lot of games left and we're only halfway through our conference play.

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.

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)

With the playoffs a little more than a week away, the No. 13 Long Reach girls basketball team will enter the stretch run of the season without senior forward Whitney Ward. Ward confirmed Tuesday that she had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during the Lightning's 74-60 loss to River Hill on Feb. 4. That means that Ward, who averaged 12.9 points and is tied with fellow senior Timisha Gomez in rebounding, will be sidelined until at least mid-May. Ward's absence "is going to hurt us on boards, and it's going to hurt us on points, but the No. 1 thing is her leadership," said Long Reach coach Kevin Broadus.

Going to St. Petersburg: Its RPI is better than Auburn's. It played a tougher schedule. It couldn't stack up to top-ranked Duke, but who can? This is the year for Maryland to end decades of postseason frustration.Team on the rise: Creighton was 15-8 three weeks ago and given little chance of making the field. It won its last six games, the final three to win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. That league landed three bids, as many as the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the Blue Jays could give the Terps trouble in the second round.
