Driving on Park Heights Avenue recently, Debbi Baer happened on the kind of scene that tends to transform her, Clark Kent-style, from apparently mild-mannered Pikesville grandmother into fearless crusader. Stopped at a red light, as she recalls the story, she looked into the next car and saw a baby in a woman's lap. No seat belts or safety seats were in sight. She swung into action. The 4-foot-11 Baer used her Ford Taurus to block the woman's path. She reported the violation to a nearby policeman.

As a 165-pound sophomore cornerback last season, Darius Johnson didn't back down against Archbishop Curley's 280-pound senior running back in a November game. After the Friars' Nik D'Avanzo - an All-Metro first-team selection at defensive tackle last season - took each handoff, a blitzing Johnson hit him in the gap. “He made that kid go backwards,” Crusaders defensive coordinator Keith Rawlings said about Johnson's tackles. St. Paul's won the game, 32-7. Hoping to continue his football career in college, Johnson has approached this summer with a similar tenacity.

Several opponents have slowed Navy's high-powered offense recently by holding the ball for long possessions, but the Midshipmen made sure Holy Cross could not do that in Sunday's Patriot League women's lacrosse championship. The No. 12 Midshipmen jumped ahead early and kept rolling to an eight-goal halftime lead en route to a 14-4 victory for their fourth straight Patriot League tournament title at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The win ended a string of three-straight one-goal wins, including two in double overtime.

Those watching No. 3 St. Paul's build a 7-4 halftime lead Tuesday afternoon against No. 8 Loyola might have thought the host Crusaders would be content to settle for a routine margin of victory over a tough boys lacrosse rival. But they would've been mistaken. St. Paul's is looking to make amends for a down year in 2012 during which the Crusaders did not win a conference game and finished a dismal 3-15. To that end, the Crusaders pressed forward at every opportunity to widen the gap in what would become a dominant 19-9 victory over the Dons, who suffered their third consecutive Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference loss.

It's the same quick release and precise aim for Mikey Wynne this season. What's new, however, is the standout attackman's uniform. After two seasons at Glenelg, the junior transferred to St. Paul's last summer and has led the No. 4 Crusaders to a 6-0 record so far this spring. Wynne scored two goals and added three assists as St. Paul's defeated visiting Fallston, 17-8, on Tuesday. The Crusaders host Cape Henlopen (Del.) on Thursday at 4 p.m. The decision to leave Glenelg was difficult for Wynne, who has 30 goals and nine assists for St. Paul's this season.

When the St. Paul's boys lacrosse team looked back on what went wrong in its disappointing 3-15 season last year, an early overtime loss to Hereford was one of the worst memories. So when the Crusaders found themselves down only two goals to the visiting Bulls after clearly being outplayed in the first half Friday, they once again faced an early crossroads. This time, St. Paul's left the field satisfied. The No. 6 Crusaders dominated No. 8 Hereford in the second half, scoring six unanswered goals after the break for an 8-4 win. Henry Riehl, Carter Flaig and Mikey Wynne each scored two goals for St. Paul's (5-0)

Seconds fly by in a lifetime and most ticks go unnoticed. But St. Paul's junior Jack Mutchnik will never forget the two seconds he enjoyed on the mat during the National Prep wrestling championships at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., on Saturday. Trailing, 4-3, to nationally ranked Judson Preskitt of Pennsylvania's Wyoming Seminary in the championship match of the 126-pound weight class with those two seconds remaining, Mutchnik scored a sudden takedown to earn a thrilling 5-4 decision.

Aberdeen's girls basketball team got off to a quick start Thursday night, scoring the first eight points against nationally ranked Riverdale Baptist, but with the Eagles' lack of a true point guard and the Crusaders' impressive perimeter shooting, it couldn't last. Riverdale Baptist, ranked No. 17 in USA Today's Girls Basketball Super 25 and No. 4 in The Washington Post, hit 14 3-pointers en route to an 85-66 victory at No. 1 Aberdeen, their third win over the Eagles in less than a year.

As St. Paul's went for the game-winning conversion in overtime of Saturday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference football final against John Carroll, quarterback Anthony Pino took the snap and turned around to hand the ball to running back Dale Harris, but Harris wasn't there. Pino didn't panic. He rolled away from the John Carroll defense and spotted Rob Suite open in the end zone. Pino hit the senior receiver in the numbers for the conversion. Those two points gave the No. 9 Crusaders their first lead of the game, 28-27, and secured not only their first B Conference title in seven years but an 11-0 season at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.
