Not many high school students have earned a coveted spot on the runway for Baltimore Fashion Week, and fewer still are making a return visit. On Wednesday, designer Bishme Cromartie, 18, will watch models show off his newest creations he designed under his own label, Ying Edge clothing, which he started when he was 15 years old. This will be the second year in a row that Cromartie has exhibited at Fashion Week. If his abstract designs weren't enough to make the teen a crowd favorite, he also has an intriguing back story.

Last night was no different.But instead of Towson, which had outscored opponents 77-7 in the first quarter, jumping to a quick lead, it was Hofstra that struck first. The Flying Dutchmen (4-3-1) scored twice in the first quarter and went on to a 40-12 victory over the Tigers (5-2) before an announced crowd of 897."That first series they got a big play to get them on top," said Towson coach Gordy Combs.
