Carey Fetting-Smith sat in soccer star Mia Hamm's old dorm room on the North Carolina campus early Monday evening and looked out the window, admiring the tranquil, tree-lined setting. The 2000 All-Metro field hockey Player of the Year from Bryn Mawr was enjoying life as a starting left back on this fall's Tar Heels field hockey squad (14-7). "I know why they say even the sky is Carolina blue down here," said Fetting-Smith, who scored two goals and had five assists in an impressive freshman year.

Don't talk to Jamie Vogtman about the sophomore jinx. She says she's never heard of it.Her game certainly shows no sign of it.Mercy's 5-foot-11 center said she hasn't felt a lot of pressure to live up to a stellar freshman season in which she averaged 10.7 points and 11.2 rebounds. Still, she is fully aware of what's expected of her."When you're a freshman and you make a mistake, people say, 'That's OK. She's only a freshman,' " Vogtman said. "When you're a sophomore, you've really got to think.

Packed doesn't begin to describe Hannah Oneda's schedule. While it's common for freshmen to falter and sludge their way through their first semester at college, and take to liberties in exploring their newfound freedom, the Johns Hopkins cross country runner from Winters Mill has hit the ground running - literally and figuratively. "I wake up around 8 or 9 to do either a 30-minute pool or shakeout run, or yoga with the team. Then, I go to class from 9 to 12, eat lunch and maybe fit in another 30-minute pool run if I didn't do it in the morning.

Center Braxton Dupree, who started eight games for Maryland as a promising freshman but played little as a sophomore, has transferred to Towson, the school said Monday. The 6-foot-8 center obtained his release from Maryland in April, but it was uncertain where he was headed until Monday. Dupree (Calvert Hall) had said he wanted to remain close to home. Dupree "has an opportunity to be a real impact player in the [Colonial Athletic Association]," Towson coach Pat Kennedy said in a written statement.

Two of the most talented players returning for Mount St. Mary's men's basketball team, sophomores Melvin Whitaker and Terrence Wilson, were dismissed from school, the college announced yesterday. The dismissals came three weeks after Mount St. Mary's spring semester ended on May 12. Wilson and Whitaker went in front of the school's academic review committee, which made its decision late last week. The pair can take summer classes at other colleges with the chance to gain readmission to the school.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- His father died right before his freshman season began. His coach resigned after his sophomore season ended. And as Tom Gugliotta winds down his basketball career at North Carolina State, his wondrous talents have been left virtually unsupported by his mostly inexperienced teammates.Like Maryland's Walt Williams, Gugliotta is having the season of his life, but not the time of his life. Both players have little to show for their efforts except mounting frustration and losses.

At the start of the season, had you asked Chesapeake senior midfielder Courtney Lupinek what was new, she would probably still be answering the question to this day. New coach? Check. New position? Check. New players around her? Check. Lupinek, who made the switch from forward to center midfield, was the only starting field player back for first-year coach Liz Farrell. Despite all the new things, it's been much of the same at Chesapeake, where the Cougars (7-4) are having another fine season with the playoffs fast approaching.

River Hill's Scott Mantua appears to be a typical 15-year-old sophomore finding his way in high school. He's on the quiet side, gets A's and B's in the classroom and enjoys hanging out with friends. Find him on his dirt bike, and he's happy. Snowboarding and fishing are fun, too. But when Mantua gets on the wrestling mat, that all changes. "You wouldn't think he has the personality of a wrestler. And then he gets on the mat and just tears it up. It's fun to watch," said fellow River Hill sophomore Nathan White, who wrestles at 119 pounds and was a regional champion and state qualifier last season.

Entering her freshman year at Arundel, tennis player Amy Olson didn't know what to expect. She knew that Anne Arundel County competition was filled with solid, older players. She also knew that tennis wasn't her main sport. So Olson didn't see herself being a threat to take the county championship. But then she started to win. "People would tell me when I was going to play somebody good," said Olson, now a sophomore for the Wildcats. "Because I was a freshman, the other players didn't know anything about me. They weren't ready to play a tough match.

In Florida, where Centennial second baseman Michelle Bosserman grew up, softball is more like a religion than a sport. A large segment of the population plays or watches, and it's hard to drive far at night without seeing a game in progress. Travel teams schedule spring and fall seasons and, in the summer, all-star squads are selected and play a full schedule. Bosserman started playing softball at 5 and brought a little of that Florida zeal with her to Howard County when she moved at 11. "She learned the game early and you could tell right away she'd be special, because she always gave 110 percent and had a blast," said her father, Greg.

Chris Rix's suspension from last season's Sugar Bowl game against Georgia could be regarded as the ultimate wakeup call. The Florida State quarterback had missed a final exam after oversleeping, forcing school officials to implement a state-mandated policy geared toward athletes with plans to turn pro from ditching their academic responsibilities. Some called it the "Deion Rule," for former Seminoles star Deion Sanders. The suspension came at the end of a tumultuous sophomore year for Rix, who had lost his starting job after a home defeat to Notre Dame and regained it only because his replacement, Adrian McPherson, was suspended from school amid gambling rumors that ultimately brought charges of sports betting.

With every victory for Mount St. Joseph wrestler Danny DeVivo, there is self-criticism, self-analysis.Take, for example, last year's Annapolis Tournament title bout.DeVivo, a true 160-pounder, was wrestling at 171 pounds. He overcame an early 5-4 deficit by scoring nine of 12 back points in the second period of a 23-6 technical-fall victory over Chris Brown, a state champ from McDonough in Charles County.It was a display of dominance and talent by most standards -- except DeVivo's. All he talked about afterward was that he "got sloppy."

CHARLOTTESVILLE - Kyle Dixon was more than a standout lacrosse player at Archbishop Spalding High. He also earned the school's Excellence in Chemistry Award, and his ability to recognize the volatility of certain compounds has come in handy during his freshman season at Virginia. "At Spalding, I was the lead player," said Dixon, who joined an elite midfield corps here and forced his way on to the first unit. "I've had to change my role, but I knew I was going to have to do that. We've got three great senior midfielders.

It's been quite the journey back to UMBC for Jessie Collins, Arundel's talented senior point guard. In her freshman year, she was a key component off the bench in helping the Wildcats to their second state title. Three seasons and two anterior cruciate ligament surgeries later - the first on her right knee the summer before her sophomore season and the second on her left knee at the end of that season - she's looking forward to the chance of ending her high school career the same way she started it. The team captain will lead the No. 3 Wildcats (22-3)
