It took about the same time for "The Match" for the National Prep Team Tennis Championship to be decided yesterday as it took to read this far. Deerfield Academy coach Jay Morsuch wasn't kidding when he sent word out of the hills of Western Massachusetts last week that "we have depth."Host McDonogh and Deerfield, both unbeaten through three matches after the morning pairings, squared off first in three doubles pairings worth one point. McDonogh's top tandem of Nick Colvin and Chris Chiu bested Ogden Phipps and Nick Aquavella in a pro set, 8-5, then the cheering stopped.

In the weight room at the Deerfield Run Community Center, 12-year-old Ashaki Gittens-Smith, wearing red gym shorts and a red tank top, is trying out the exercise machines with a friend: running on a treadmill for a couple of minutes, walking on an elliptical trainer, lifting a dumbbell or two. Down the hall in the gym, meanwhile, his two older brothers are playing a fast-paced game of basketball. Fourteen-year-old Adisa, his white T-shirt soaked with sweat, is darting around the court tirelessly, often with the ball; 16-year-old Ayinde, taller and wearing a sleeveless "Deerfield Run Mustangs" shirt, spends more time under the backboard.

Most of the time, the small gifted staff of Deerfield Designs in Ellicott City provides custom murals, hand-painted tiles, faux finishes and other one-of-a-kind touches for homes in the Baltimore region. But every year in early May, the shop, housed in a barn-like building on a leafy cul-de-sac, shifts gears and churns out statues of jockeys. The 9-inch-high statues will be distributed to horse owners at the Alibi Breakfast, a meet-the-press event that takes place tomorrow at Pimlico Race Course, two days before the Preakness Stakes.

A cabinet adorned with a handsome still life (right). A secretary blooming with painted bouquets. A tole tray lush with a grape motif. These beautiful objects seem even more remarkable when one learns that Deerfield Designs founder Jean Goldsmith is a self-taught artist. Deerfield is a cottage industry with style: Goldsmith, daughter Robin Evans and son-in-law Todd Evans operate a studio and showroom that showcase their decorative painting: furnishings, of course, but also lamps, mirrors and architectural accents such as mantels and cornices.
