In 39 years as a head coach, Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw has seen - and consequently, prepared for - many strategies and tactics from opponents. But even he sounded mystified as to why his team failed to score a goal in the second half of Saturday night's 11-8 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Towson (7-2, 1-0). The Blue Hens (5-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference) took just six shots in the final two quarters and seemed to be out of sorts against the No. 20 Tigers' zone defense.

A true blue-collar tough guy, Wilson "Skip" Strong Jr. was never much for computers, or showing his feelings for that matter. But recently, he surprised a friend on his birthday by sending an e-mail from work. "You know, it's funny how life can change in just a year," he wrote. "I never thought I would be a father or a crew leader. Sometimes, we don't take the time to sit back and look at how good life really is." Less than two weeks later, Strong, 38, was killed in an accident on a Louisiana interstate.

Melanie Over and Josh Rosella had been planning this day for over a year. Only their plan was to be spending it on a Jamaican beach, getting ready for their wedding, not sweating it out at the airport with most of their wedding party and guests, stuck in snowy Baltimore. "We were supposed to get married Saturday, and our flight was supposed to be this morning at 9:30, but it was delayed and eventually canceled," said a disappointed Rosella, sitting Thursday on a luggage cart alongside his equally disappointed bride-to-be at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

The Orioles' three starters in next week's MLB All-Star Game - Chris Davis, Adam Jones and J.J. Hardy - have each done their share to carry the offense through the first half of the season. And on Friday night, the trio combined to drive in all of the Orioles runs - each player hitting a home run to increase the club's major league-leading homer total to 128 - in the Orioles' 8-5 win over the Blue Jays in front of an announced 42,660 at Camden Yards. In a game that featured the top two home-run hitting teams in the majors, the Orioles blasted Toronto left-hander Mark Buehrle for three homers, including Davis' majors-leading 35th homer of the season.

This was supposed to be the year that Salisbury fell from the top of the Division III mountain - hard. After graduation had sapped the team of six starters, two more 20-goal scorers and two short-stick defensive midfielders, the team limped to a 1-2 start and suffered its first losing streak since 2009 and dropped below .500 for the first time since 1989. The Sea Gulls rebounded with nine consecutive wins, but was stunned, 7-6, by Washington College on April 17 in their final contest before the Capital Athletic Conference tournament and then upended, 13-11, by St. Mary's in the conference tournament final.

Caringi also remembers a recruiting pitch that day. "His dad comes up and [starts] telling me how good his son is, and I'm like, 'Yeah, yeah.' Meanwhile, as I was watching the game [Phil] was playing really, really well," Caringi said with a smile. "I kind of kept a mental note about it.
