No. 11 Chesapeake-AA scored five runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back in Tuesday's Class 4A state semifinal at the University of Maryland's Shipley Field, rolling to a 9-1 victory over Urbana. The Cougars (18-7) were led by senior shortstop Michael Marsh, who added insurance runs with two-run homers in the fourth and sixth innings. Junior pitcher Jason Seitler was dominant again, allowing just three hits in a complete-game effort for Chesapeake. The right-handed ace has anchored the Cougars' pitching staff all season.

- For the past couple of seasons, the Old Mill boys basketball team has been used to the highs and lows that come in the 32 minutes of each game. The No. 7 Patriots make the most of their runs and calmly weather their opponents' streaks. In the end, they usually find a way to win. Thursday night's Class 4A state semifinal game against Urbana was no exception for the Patriots, whose reward is a trip to the program's first state championship game. After seeing a 20-point third-quarter advantage drop to two points early in the fourth, the Patriots regrouped with poise and resilience to earn a 73-64 win at Comcast Center.

The intimate presidential inner circle of Franklin D. Roosevelt was diminished last month with the death in McLean, Va., of Mollie Dorf Somerville, an author, historian and lecturer who had been an aide to Eleanor Roosevelt. Somerville, who was 102, was the aunt of retired City Circuit Judge Paul A. Dorf, 83, now a partner in the Baltimore law firm of Adelberg, Rudow Dorf & Hendler LLC. "She was always my favorite aunt," Dorf recalled the other day. "Six months before her death, we went to see her, and she held a tea cup without her hand shaking.

The three-pointers were no problem for Arundel in the second half of last night's state girls basketball championship against Eleanor Roosevelt. The layups were another matter. The No. 3 Wildcats missed two layups in the final 40 seconds. Roosevelt got the rebounds and Ahja Hall put one back for the game-winner as the Raiders escaped a thriller, 52-50, to claim their fourth straight state Class 4A crown at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Wildcats, who won the most recent of their three state titles in 2004, missed out on the state tournament last season, but they felt about the same losing last night's final as they had about losing to Old Mill in last year's regional playoffs.

COLLEGE PARK -- Broadneck's motto this season has been "You gotta swing to win." In the end, the Bruins just kept swinging. Third-ranked Broadneck (20-1) crawled out of a 2-1 hole to defeat Dulaney, 24-26, 25-18, 22-25, 25-10, 15-10, in the Class 4A state semifinals at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum last night. "I looked in their eyes and I could see the intensity," Broadneck coach Ramanzo Beans said. "They really proved to me what they were made of tonight." The Bruins will face Montgomery County's Wootton in the 4A state championship at Ritchie Coliseum tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. "I always tell them we need to terminate," Beans said, referring to the kills by his team's front line.

Lady Bird Johnson, the widow of Lyndon B. Johnson, whose tumultuous presidency often overshadowed her considerable achievements as an activist first lady and environmentalist, died yesterday at her home in Austin, Texas. She was 94. Mrs. Johnson, who suffered a major stroke in 2002 and had been in failing health for several years, died surrounded by family and friends, including daughters Lynda Johnson Robb and Luci Baines Johnson, said family spokeswoman Elizabeth Christian. As the wife of the 36th president, Mrs. Johnson was often portrayed by contemporaries and some historians as a meek woman who silently endured her husband's volcanic outbursts and infidelities.
