"In the Presence of the Enemy," by Elizabeth George. Bantam. 519 pages. $23.95 It's true of any good mystery series: The neophyte will never fully appreciate the latest installment as much as the loyal reader. Yet the individual book must stand on its own merits, satisfying those who have not met its main characters. "In the Presence of the Enemy" was my introduction to the eight-book series by Elizabeth George and I grudgingly concede veteran readers may find more pleasure in the novel than I did. Then again, there's always something special about first times.

Players on the McDonogh field hockey team say they never openly talked about last year's overtime loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference final. In Thursday's rematch, however, the Eagles left little doubt that it was on the top of their minds. Led by a goal and assist by junior Brindi Griffin, No. 2 McDonogh stormed out of the gate to build a three-goal lead early in the second half, then held off a furious comeback attempt by top-ranked Spalding to preserve a 3-2 win, ending the Cavaliers' 17-game winning streak.

The longer the McDonogh girls lacrosse team's winning streak went on this spring, the more determined the Eagles' opponents were to end it - and the more resilient the Eagles were in keeping it going. No. 6 Roland Park took its best shot Sunday night and had the No. 1 Eagles down by three goals with less than 10 minutes to play in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship at Stevenson University, but McDonogh rallied with seven straight goals to take a 16-13 victory for its 112th straight win. The Eagles (21-0)

Once Megan Whittle got going, top-ranked McDonogh went with her. The Eagles' talented junior attacker scored five of her game-high six goals in the first half Thursday, as the host McDonogh girls lacrosse team posted a 19-10 victory over No. 4 Maryvale. Sophomore midfielder Elizabeth George added five goals as McDonogh (15-0, 9-0 IAAM) broke open a close game midway through the first half and rolled to its 84th consecutive victory. George scored the game's first two goals, but Maryvale senior midfielder Sydney Hesselbein tallied twice to even the game.

Century controlled play for much of the first 20 minutes against visiting McDonogh in girls lacrosse Monday night. The Knights scored the first three goals, won the first four draws and often kept possession. But top-ranked McDonogh slowly turned things around. The Eagles began to win the draws, gain possession and manufacture scoring chances, all of which helped McDonogh rally for a 10-7 victory over No. 5 Century. The Eagles improved to 18-0 and now have won 87 consecutive games.

On a spring break trip to Florida, the No. 1 McDonogh girls lacrosse team opened its season Wednesday with a 12-8 win at Vero Beach to extend its winning streak to 92 games. In a showdown of the top two teams in the nation in the Student Sports FAB 50, the Eagles ran up a 6-1 lead and never trailed against the Indians (9-1) before an announced crowd of 2,000 at Vero Beach's football stadium. The game was a rematch of last year's season opener when the Eagles had to come from behind to win, 12-6.

McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team didn't finish its season with a perfect game, but the end result still added up to perfection, especially for the senior class. The Eagles rallied from four goals down to beat St. Paul's, 11-8, Monday afternoon to put the finishing touch on a 22-0 season with their fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. The 17 McDonogh seniors did not lose a game during their high school careers as the Eagles ran their winning streak to 91 games, the country's longest active girls lacrosse streak and the third longest in history behind the record of 103 set by Loch Raven in 1982 and matched by Mount Hebron in 2007.

McDonogh's girls lacrosse streak lives on - but just barely. The No. 1 Eagles rallied from two goals down with less than six minutes left Wednesday to edge No. 5 Severn, 13-12, for their 111th straight victory and the chance to play for their sixth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. Megan Whittle scored the game winner with 1:18 left, rolling the crease with a crowd of Admirals defenders but still finding a low opening to the net. Olivia Jenner then snatched the draw out of the air, giving the host Eagles the possession they needed to hold on for their first one-goal victory in nearly two years.

McDonogh's girls lacrosse players put the finishing touch on their historic 104th straight victory Thursday afternoon with a raucous celebration. The celebration alone made it clear that the No. 1 Eagles had accomplished something special with their 18-10 win over No. 12 St. Paul's. They're usually all smiles but all business after every win, but it isn't everyday that a team breaks a national record, so coach Chris Robinson urged them to revel in the moment. The players happily obliged, squealing and yelling as they raced into a huge huddle on their home field.

McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team kept its winning streak rolling to 103 games Monday with a 16-9 win at No. 2 Marriotts Ridge that tied what is believed to be the national record for consecutive high school girls lacrosse victories. Olivia Jenner dominated the draw and Elizabeth George had five goals and an assist to power the Eagles, who have not lost in more than five years, to victory in a showdown of undefeated teams. "We were really pumped up for this game," George said.
