Towson women's lacrosse coach Sonia LaMonica was hoping to get more production from attack this season to take some pressure off the defense, which helped the Tigers win eight of nine one-goal games last season. However, the loss of the Tigers' top two scorers to injuries put a damper on those plans. In Wednesday's game against UMBC, No. 16 Towson again dominated the defensive end and this time found a spark with Kelly Custer and Olivia Turner, who combined for seven goals in an 11-8 victory.

Gettysburg was a classic infantry battle, but it also had a cavalry component, and one of the most famous units was Brig. Gen. George Armstrong Custer's Wolverines, composed of the 1st, 5th, 6th and 7th Michigan Cavalry regiments. Gen. Robert E. Lee, determined to break the Union center, sent Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart and his cavalry about three miles east of Gettysburg around to the Union right on the third day of the battle. Their instructions were to get into the Union rear, to break through, and to get into the pack trains and artillery reserves, according to Col. Edwin E. Bryant in "The Battle of Gettysburg," a paper that he presented on Oct. 4, 1893.

Christopher Custer, the 21-year-old Marine lance corporal who was killed in a car crash last weekend in Pennsylvania, had recently returned from Iraq, where he served as a combat engineer, according to information released yesterday by the Marine Corps. Lt. Clark Carpenter, a public information officer at Camp Lejeune, N.C., where Custer was stationed, said the Bel Air resident was on three weeks leave, which is typical for Marines returning from duty in Iraq. Carpenter said that Custer had received a half-dozen awards since joining the Marines in November 2000, including the Navy and Marine Corps achievement medal.

Sarah Hogan has scored other goals for Towson, but it's doubtful any have been more important or timely than against visiting James Madison on Sunday. The junior scored with 26 seconds left in double overtime to give the No. 17 Tigers a 10-9 win and the regular-season Colonial Athletic Association championship. Both teams entered the game with unblemished conference records, and both knew it was winner take all for the title. "I saw that Kelly [Custer] was being doubled and had nowhere to go, and she did a great job of getting me the ball," said Hogan, who fired a bullet past James Madison's Schylar Healy for the game winner.

Anna Custer played tour guide as the bus she was in wended through Baltimore. Look, the Ritz-Carlton Residences. There, Camden Yards. Now coming through Fells Point, the last place where Edgar Allan Poe had a drink before his demise. And most importantly: "When you are leaving here to go to Aberdeen, you're looking at a 30-minute drive," she said. Her bus and one in front of it were filled with people preparing for a move from Fort Monmouth in New Jersey to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County, part of the national relocation of military jobs known as "base realignment and closure," or BRAC.
