Jean Grimes, a Pasadena resident, recently lived a dream. Or maybe it was a nightmare. It depends upon your outlook on bowling in general and on tournament bowling specifically.Grimes started duckpin bowling just three years ago."Glenna [Grimes, manager of Riviera Bowl and Jean Grimes' sister-in-law] dragged me into a bowling center about three years ago," she said. "Then last weekend she dragged me into the tournament."That tournament was a Duckpin Bowler Tour event at Fair Lanes Eastpoint, a singles tournament with results based on a handicap system.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps ' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney. "It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around that," Szefc said. Since then, the program has endured 27 losing seasons in 43 years, failing to compete with perennial Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouses such as North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Virginia and Florida State.

No. 1 Loyola Maryland is one win away from doing something it has not done before. If the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League) can defeat Boston University (1-9, 1-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m., they will host the conference tournament semifinals April 25 and the final two days later at Ridley Athletic Complex. Loyola never hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which was awarded to the previous year's regular-season champion. Denver hosted that league's tournament in 2011 and 2012, and when the Greyhounds won the title in 2012, the ECAC elected to switch the host site to Hobart.

The result is an open single-elimination tournament that ultimately will lead to a tournament by classifications like the MPSSAA's.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

The Navy men's soccer team has already captured its second Patriot League regular-season championship and became the second team in conference history to complete an unblemished league record without a loss or a tie. Unfortunately, the bottom line is titles, and as the top-seeded Midshipmen (13-3-2) prepare to meet No. 4 seed Bucknell in a Patriot League tournament semifinal Friday at 4 p.m. at the Glen Warner Soccer Facility in Annapolis, there's pressure on the team to reach its first title game since 1999 and its first conference championship.

As the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament, the UMBC women's soccer team has worked hard to reap the rewards of that status, capturing the program's first regular-season conference title, earning home-field advantage in the semifinals and final, and enjoying a first-round bye in the quarterfinals. At the same time, however, the expectation is that the Retrievers (11-5-2 overall and 6-2-0 in the league) are the favorites to take home their first tournament championship. And history would appear to be on their side.

It is still early, but the Towson women's soccer team is positioning itself for its first appearance in a conference tournament since 2001. With a 2-2 record in the Colonial Athletic Association, the Tigers (7-6-1 overall) currently sit in fifth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the conference tournament. The program has never qualified for the CAA tournament since joining the league for the 2002 campaign. The school played in six America East and Big South tournaments between 1992 and 2001, but reaching the CAA tournament would be a significant accomplishment.

St. Mary's enjoyed a number of milestones this past spring: the program's first 12-win campaign since 2007, the school's first Capital Athletic Conference tournament crown in six attempts and the university's first appearance in the NCAA tournament. Those accomplishments should be badges of pride for the players and coaches, but they also serve to raise the bar for the Seahawks in 2014, coach Chris Hasbrouck acknowledged. “It'll be a very different fall for us this year,” he said.

NEW YORK - Serena Williams says she feels like the U.S. Open defending champion. "Kind of," Williams said, and after all, she didn't play here a year ago, missing her favorite major tournament because of knee surgery. So Williams hasn't lost at this place since defeating her sister Venus in the 2002 final. Justine Henin-Hardenne should feel like the defending champion, because she is. But Henin-Hardenne doesn't know how to feel. The Belgian, still ranked No. 1 in the world, has played only eight matches in nearly five months as she struggled to recover and regain her strength from a viral illness.

WASHINGTON -- A week ago, Andre Agassi walked onto the court in Cincinnati for his first match in that city's Masters' Series tournament and his brain was alive with questions. Why had he lost in the round of 32 the week before? Why had he won the match before that? Why wasn't he able to string back-to-back wins together? "I had every bit as many questions as anyone else," said Agassi, who will begin play as the No. 1 seed in the Legg Mason Tennis Classic tonight against Rockville's Paul Goldstein, a wild-card entry.
