For the better part of the past three years, Virginia enjoyed the rare luxury of knowing that the net on the defensive side of the field was filled by Adam Ghitelman. Ghitelman's nine-save performance in the national title game allowed him to ride off into the sunset with a NCAA crown - and left the Cavaliers with a decision to make regarding his successor. Coach Dom Starsia thinks he has found the right man in senior Rob Fortunato. “We feel like Rob Fortunato is the likely starter,” Starsia said.

Carlo Fortunato opened his first pizza restaurant in Harford County when he was 15. The year was 1975. He had left his home in Naples, Italy, the year before, and, after a stint in Philadelphia, came to Bel Air, where he purchased Frank's Pizza. That restaurant still exists, though he no longer owns it. In 1981, Carlo and his older brother, Vinny, opened the first Fortunato Brothers restaurant on Church Street in Bel Air. The sit-down restaurant sold pizzas, subs and other casual Italian fare, and it attracted such a following that the brothers opened others.

Was it just my imagination, or were there others who thought that something supernatural might have taken place Saturday at Angelo Fortunato Memorial Stadium?It seemed to me that the Centennial Eagles' soccer team had a guardian angel looking after it in its 1-1 tie with Howard.The Eagles, even though undefeated through a tough seven-game schedule, and ranked No. 2 in the Baltimore area by The Sun, had to be considered the underdog against an unbeaten and top-ranked Howard team that is the defending Class 3A state co-champion.

Gina Fortunato spent an hour yesterday breathing in deeply and letting go, an exercise in relaxation, self-transformation, inspiration. Oh, and fund raising. Appreciating the idea of doing good while helping themselves, dozens of people arrived for yoga classes, massage appointments and "integrative breathing" sessions at seven sites throughout the Baltimore area for the HealingAthon, a new charity event. The money participants paid for their moments of me-time will fund similar services for cancer patients, organizers said.

A NICE, OLD anthology of fiction appeared -- mysteriously -- on my desk in The Sun newsroom Friday, the 192nd anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe and the dampest and gloomiest day of the new year. I don't know who left the book; there was no note or inscription. But a piece of paper marked the first entry, Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado," one of his shortest, greatest and creepiest works, published in 1846. Many stories were in the book -- by dozens of authors, including Ernest Hemingway, James Baldwin, Anton Chekhov and Joyce Carol Oates -- but the person who placed it on my desk had marked "The Cask."

In Monday night's game, Fuller went 4-for-4 in a 9-2 victory.
