When Florida's women's lacrosse team plays at Johns Hopkins Saturday, it will be more like a home game for about half the Gators' roster. Thirteen players hail from Maryland and 11 of them played at Baltimore area high schools. The most recent Gators starting lineup includes Ashley Bruns from Mount Hebron; Brittany Dashiell, John Carroll; Sam Farrell, Severna Park; Haydon Judge, St. Mary's; Kayla Stolins, Loch Raven; and Emily Dohony, Hereford. All-American Kitty Cullen, McDonogh, has been sidelined for three games with an injury but is expected to return Saturday.

In Severna Park's season-opening win earlier this week, Falcons coach Tim Dunbar didn't like the way his players were executing. He decided to go back to the basics: passing, blocking and playing defense. The emphasis paid off big time for the fifth-ranked Falcons, as they out-hit and out-defensed top-ranked and visiting St. Paul's (0-2), 25-11, 25-16, 25-14, in a nonleague game. The Falcons (2-0) were led by junior setter Morgan Kline, who contributed 29 assists, 10 digs, and two aces.

This season was supposed to be a down year for the Arundel volleyball team. If that's the case, they sure picked the right time to find an up. The No. 12 Wildcats (1-0) stormed to a two-set lead over top-ranked St. Paul's (1-1) and then rallied in the fifth set to defeat the Gators, 25-16, 25-19, 21-25, 16-25, 15-10 in a nonleague match. "I think we're better than we thought we were," Arundel coach Ashley Yuscavage said. "I was telling [senior setter] Emily [Durocher] that I needed someone to step up and surprise me.

If you're a fan of the Florida Gators, the word is "whew."Years of trouble, tension, turnover and turmoil in the athletic department finally appear to be ending. If the lessons have been learned that should have been learned the future looks bright. But that's a big "if" in Gatorland, where obsessive desire to win causes some to lose their moral compass.The worst of the sanctions announced by the NCAA yesterday was the ban on a bowl appearance this season. That stings. The Gators, 2-0 and ranked 19th by The Associated Press, appear good enough to have qualified for at least a mid-level bowl and perhaps better.

Reaching last year's state final boosted Perry Hall girls soccer nTC into unfamiliar territory this fall.Nearly every starter returns, so little has changed about the Gators' physical game. But it's a whole different ballgame when it comes to the mental aspect -- how the No. 3 Gators handle their newfound status as a marked team."People are really looking to beat us," said All-Metro center halfback Jessa Phoebus. "We've never been in that situation before. You can definitely tell there's going to be more pressure.

With six freshmen on the roster, Seton Keough's girls basketball team is a work in progress, and the No. 13 Gators took another significant step Saturday.

The visiting Gators (2-3) earned their neighborhood bragging rights with a 9-0 third-quarter run that provided just enough separation to hang on at the end. Junior Jade Porter, who led all scorers with 11 points, had five of her seven rebounds during the run and hit a follow shot to begin the quarter and give Seton Keough a 26-21 lead.

McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team didn't finish its season with a perfect game, but the end result still added up to perfection, especially for the senior class. The Eagles rallied from four goals down to beat St. Paul's, 11-8, Monday afternoon to put the finishing touch on a 22-0 season with their fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. The 17 McDonogh seniors did not lose a game during their high school careers as the Eagles ran their winning streak to 91 games, the country's longest active girls lacrosse streak and the third longest in history behind the record of 103 set by Loch Raven in 1982 and matched by Mount Hebron in 2007.

The Perry Hall softball team takes pride in the details. The No. 4 Gators appreciate a sacrifice bunt as much as a big hit. They make sure to get the lead runner, make opponents go station to station to try to bring home a run and have found a knack for getting the big outs. Veteran coach Brian Radcliffe, in his 18th season, urges his players to be "brilliant at the basics. " With No. 7 Mount de Sales visiting on Wednesday, the Gators practiced what Radcliffe has been preaching with a 7-2 win over the Sailors.

St. Paul's coach Brooke Kuhl-McClelland on Saturday found a way to keep high-powered C. Milton Wright from running wild on offense. Simply never let the No. 2 Mustangs start running to begin with. Using a ball-control offense featuring frequent one-on-ones and very few high-risk passes, No. 7 St. Paul's took control by holding the visiting Harford County team to just one goal in a mid-game span of more than 15 minutes, getting a game-high five goals from senior Shelby Wells in a 10-9 win.
