Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain, who was originally scheduled to be at the City of Decatur (Ala.) Municipal Court tomorrow, has pleaded guilty to a window tint violation stemming from his arrest in January following a traffic stop. In exchange, the city has dismissed the charge of providing false information to police during the arrest. McClain, who signed an expletive on the citation rather than his real name, thus resulting in the providing false information charge, made an online payment of $186 to settle the fine and court costs and any other fees associated with this case.

According to Inside Lacrosse, the history makers are attackman Forry Smith of the Haverford School in Havertown, Pa., and Johns Hopkins, which should come as no surprise given remarks that coach Dave Pietramala made to Baltimore Sun reporter Childs Walker in a story on the sophomore trend that ran this month: "There's no question I'm talking out both sides of my mouth on this," Pietramala said.

1905: courts-martial on plebe hazing Hazing plebes at the U.S. Naval Academy is not a new issue, but it came to public light at least 100 years ago, when Congress and the Navy banned the practice. The hazing got so rough a century ago at Christmastime that a series of courts-martial of several upperclassmen began Dec. 28, 1905, when Trenmore Coffin Jr. was tried on the charge of hazing Jerdone P. Kimbrough. But the court-martial of Stephen Decatur Jr., a senior charged in the same case, made the most waves.

The Reservoir girls soccer team had to battle through an uneven regular season that featured more losses than wins, but one fact remains: The Gators are the defending Class 3A state champions. They certainly looked the part Tuesday when visiting Howard County rival and No. 7 Centennial in the second round of the Class 3A East regional playoffs. Their state playoff experience coming to the front, the Gators, controlled play throughout, got a goal from senior midfielder Michelle Viegas in the 54th minute and showed poise in protecting the advantage to advance with a 1-0 win over the Eagles.

Hamilton scored 16 points and added 12 rebounds; Isaiah McCray, Anthony Goode and Troy Branch finished with nine points each; and the Millers (24-3)

Virginia watermen used illegally submerged nets to fish out of season and altered and reused fish tags as part of the black market responsible for illegally catching millions of dollars worth of striped bass from the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River, according to affidavits for federal search warrants. The court records, filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., present a picture of a much larger operation, one in which one waterman boasted to undercover officers of making $600,000 in one year of poaching and hinted at making bribes.
