It has been said many times that high school volleyball is a game of momentum. Top-ranked Mount de Sales learned all about that Thursday night - the hard way. The host Sailors (18-1) were kept off balance most of the night by a strong Good Counsel front line and saw their undefeated season end, 25-18, 14-25, 28-26, 25-23, in the Maryland/D.C. Private Schools championship. "We let our intensity down, and they took advantage of it," said Mount de Sales junior Hannah Schmidt (22 kills, 20 digs, five aces)

* ATP Legg Mason Tennis Classic Right now, it seems no one can stop Juan Martin del Potro. He won his fourth straight tournament yesterday, beating Viktor Troicki, 6-3, 6-3, in Washington. The 19-year-old, ranked No. 19 in the world, has won his past 19 matches since June 25, when he was ousted from Wimbledon in the second round. "I feel confidence," del Potro said. "Because when I go to the court, and the other players know I beat 19 players in a row and nobody can beat me, it is good for me."

When River Hill finally shook the Centennial monkey from its back last night and won the Howard County volleyball championship, 3-1, the hardest part may have been deciding just how to celebrate. There was screaming, of course - the kind one might expect from the Hawks after an emotional win, 15-7, 10-15, 16-14, 16-14. Countless times, it seemed, River Hill (12-2) had been poised to unseat Centennial (13-2), yet the Hawks had always seemed to come up short. Until last night, that is. There was candy, too - lollipops from coach Sybil Modispatcher serving as River Hill's reward for its scrappy defensive play.

Both Perry Hall and Severna Park ran off streaks in yesterday's match. The difference was in the timing.No. 7 Severna Park reeled off nine straight points in the first game plus 12 in the second and closed out its 15-11, 15-13, 15-7 volleyball victory at No. 5 Perry Hall by scoring the match's final 11 points.Severna Park (2-0), the three-time defending Class 4A state champion and winner of 55 straight best-of-five matches (the Falcons lost a best-of-three match in 1992), lacks experience this season, and it showed at times in this match.

Often down, yet never out. That about sums up Centennial's volleyball match against rival River Hill last night, a 15-12, 15-13, 3-15, 15-3 win for the Eagles. In each of the first two games, No. 5 River Hill jumped out to a big lead, only to see No. 4 Centennial come storming back behind All-Metro hitter Lindsay Feller, who had 12 kills and seven aces to lead the Eagles (8-1 overall, 7-0 Howard County) to a relatively easy win over the Hawks (8-1, 8-1). "Lindsay Feller just stepped up and starting serving well, and once she did that, I could see things start to crumble," said River Hill coach Sybil Modispacher, who watched her team lose a 12-5 lead in the first game and a 13-7 lead in the second.

Maybe it was a letdown or just one of those bad days or as senior big hitter Julie Allen said: "We were trying to run a lot of quick sets in our new offense."Whatever the reason, top-ranked and unbeaten Severna Park did not exactly overwhelm 12th-ranked North County last night even though the Falcons won in three games, 15-7, 15-6, 16-14, in Linthicum.Of course, it would have been hard to match the nearly flawless performance Severna Park (8-0) put on against Northeast in its last match before North County.

In some ways, losing in the quarterfinals of last weekend's volleyball tournament at North Caroline didn't mean anything to Broadneck. There were no playoff ramifications, and the outcome wasn't going to make or break its season.But when the opponent is a county rival, the defeat takes on greater importance. And the need to get even becomes more urgent.The third-ranked Bruins sought a measure of revenge against No. 8 Glen Burnie last night. It took a while, but they got it.Glen Burnie (8-4)
