In its first season with a girls golf team, Archbishop Spalding on Tuesday won the rain-shortened Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. The Cavaliers' win ended a run of six-straight titles by Roland Park. An “unplayable” Fox Hollow Golf Course forced the IAAM to cancel the second day of play and use Monday's first round scores to determine the title winner. “What we saw was that the greens were unplayable,” Friends School athletic director Greg Whitley and IAAM golf commissioner said.

There was lots of drama Sunday at the LPGA's Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif. Not only did Sweden's Anna Nordqvist rally for a one-shot victory, but Lexi Thompson gave the U.S. team a huge boost for this summer's inaugural International Crown at Caves Valley Golf Club. Thompson's strong finish of four birdies on the last six holes - including one on the final hole - lifted the 19-year-old Floridian to ninth in the Rolex World Rankings. It also helped give the four-player U.S. team the No. 1 seed among the eight countries that will be represented in Owings Mills in late July.

Last winter, when they were clutching beat-up golf clubs for the first time - swinging wildly from an abandoned East Baltimore lot across the street from the state penitentiary - who could have foreseen the scrappy little golf team from St. FrancesAcademy would be so well supported? Who could have seen them hobnobbing with the pros, getting decked out in new duds, being profiled on TV and by national golf magazines, or accepting free lessons at country clubs? "It is kind of unbelievable when you think about it," said Ryan Mitchell, 15, a member of the inner city school's team who, like most of the other boys on the squad, had never set foot on a golf course until this year.

Just four days after securing a place at the state tournament with a win at districts, the Liberty golf team put itself in strong contention for a county title with a surprise win at the county tournament last weekend. Led by a 1-over 73 by senior captain John Rosecrans, the Lions' four-man team shot 318 at the Links at Challedon in Mount Airy, outdistancing Century (322) and Westminster (329). North Carroll, which had entered the day unbeaten in the county and could have virtually cemented an outright county title with a win, finished fourth, 15 strokes off the lead.

Michael H. Ventura, a dentist who established and coached the golf team at Loyola College for nearly three decades, died in his sleep Monday at the Edenwald retirement community in Towson. He was 90. Dr. Ventura, the son of Italian immigrants, was born in Baltimore and raised in the 1200 block of N. Caroline St. An outstanding athlete in his youth, Dr. Ventura was a champion wrestler and boxing champion at Polytechnic Institute during the mid-1930s. He graduated from Poly in 1936 and earned a bachelor's degree in 1942 from Loyola College, where he had continued his wrestling career and was a student coach.

To hear Carol Mann tell it, the LPGA Tour might never have made it if it weren't for Towson University. All the buzz surrounding Michelle Wie, all the praise heaped on Annika Sorenstam for her win at the Samsung World Championship -- all of it owes a little bit of a debt to a meeting that took place over beers and cigarettes in Towson in 1974. That was the year Mann, who grew up in Towson, was named president of the LPGA Tour. Her golf credentials were certainly impeccable -- she would eventually win 38 tournaments during her professional career, and would be inducted into the LPGA Tour Hall of Fame in 1977 -- but she was the first to admit that her business acumen was somewhat lacking, and the struggling tour needed a business plan.

Mike Darr remembers his first year on the Francis Scott Key golf team. He was a freshman, and good enough to be No. 1 for a school in its first year of fielding a team in the sport.Three of the top four on the current team were on that first one, and although the players have had varying degrees of success, the team has shown steady improvement. It has gone from a losing record to 10-3 last year and to 12-4 this season.In each of the past two years, it has won the state District V title for the Class 1A-2A schools.

He may plug the middle of the Ravens' offensive line, but Matt Birk's life has always been more off-center. In high school, Birk went out for the golf team before trying football. The road to the pros took him through Harvard. And, after signing his first contract, he moved in with ... his parents. The only conventional thing about Birk is his unconventionality. During team breakfasts at the Ravens' complex, he eats granola brought from home. He is donating his brain to science, to help shed light on sports concussions.

One of the things Franklin senior attackman Ben Kaestner enjoys most is helping others. He has bagged food for the Reisterstown Crisis Center, participated in the Crop Walk for Hunger and was a volunteer cleanup worker for Historic Glyndon Inc. As a team captain, Kaestner's final lacrosse season has been ideal because the Indians have a roster filled with underclassmen who have followed his lead. After losing their first three games, the Indians have won three straight to even their record at 5-5. Kaestner, who leads the team with 21 goals and 13 assists, is expecting the team to continue the positive surge with the playoffs fast approaching.

Mike Barillo has taught Denny McCarthy for as long as the 17-year-old from Burtonsville has played golf, watching McCarthy grow from a player who could beat kids his own age to one who could take on much older and more experienced competition. "Mentally, he's better than any kid I've ever seen," Barillo said Thursday from Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring, where he's the head pro and where McCarthy's family have been longtime members. "He's extremely competitive, but he's extremely calm, really disciplined, just a smart kid and a really smart golfer.

Someone forgot to tell Paul Azinger that golf is not a team sport. The 2008 Ryder Cup captain operated under the crazy notion that 12 hyper-competitive men who spend the rest of the year trying to steal each other's paychecks would hold hands for a three-day event in the name of country pride. So Azinger, all too aware of the Yanks' three-Cup losing streak, created a pod system that divided players into groups of four. "We put guys together who would sell out for each other, share secrets and share philosophies," Azinger said.

Last year's first-round draft pick, wide receiver Mark Clayton, had 44 receptions for 471 yards. He also scored three touchdowns. Who was your football idol growing up? Barry Sanders. Why Barry? He's just simply amazing. A guy his stature? He rarely ever got touched. Nobody ever really tackled him, they just always tripped him up. When you were growing up, what other sports did you play? I was into baseball, basketball, soccer. I actually went out for our golf team, ran track. I was just all across the board.

Jenna Albright, a sophomore at Marriotts Ridge, plays No. 1 for the first-year girls golf team. A year ago, as a 14-year-old, she played No. 2 for the Marriotts Ridge co-ed team and became the first Mustangs player to qualify for the state tournament. Though Albright had been golfing for five years with her dad, Bill, and her brother, Steven, who plays No. 1 for St. Paul's, she did not find her way onto a school golf team until she was cut from soccer at the start of her freshman year at Marriotts Ridge.
