In four years at the Naval Academy, Vanessa Solem has borne the brunt of more than few jokes about her favorite pastime: riding horses. After all, they don't have sea legs, and the Navy never had a cavalry. But Solem, 26, has had the last laugh as she's held together an unofficial equestrian team that has competed in numerous area equestrian events, even winning occasionally among colleges with more resources and organized teams. "Some people are a little sarcastic about it, and some people think it's ridiculous," said Solem.

But, see, there's this dream of an Olympic gold and blah-blah-blah.Just once and strictly as a change of pace, wouldn't you enjoy learning about an athlete from the other side of the tracks?

In his high school yearbook, Michael Matz worried about the future. Classmates aspired to college or careers. Matz set a lesser goal. "I hope I get a job," he wrote. He found one in a stable line of work. The quiet, unassuming kid who drifted through his classes 40 years ago is trainer of Barbaro, the Kentucky Derby winner and favorite in Saturday's Preakness Stakes. Before that, Matz was a world-class equestrian, three-time Olympian and silver medalist in the 1996 Games who carried the American flag during closing ceremonies.

John Carroll School has found success in another varsity sport. The Patriots went 6-1 in their first year of competition in equestrian show jumping this spring, going against a variety of public and private schools from the metropolitan area. School officials there are expecting even bigger things in the future. Athletic director Larry Dukes said the team had 15 members - 13 girls and two boys - that went up against schools such as McDonogh, Bryn Mawr, Roland Park and Hereford. Dukes said the school had been losing potential students who were interested in coming there but didn't when they found out John Carroll did not have equestrian teams.
