Mount Hebron's Adam Grap hit two homers and drove in seven runs to power the defending county champions to a league-opening 11-7 victory over host Long Reach yesterday. Long Reach, 8-6 losers to No. 2 Severna Park Saturday, knocked the Vikings out of the playoffs a year ago in the Class 3A East region semifinals with a 7-6, extra-inning victory. Grap said that loss to Long Reach motivated him a little bit. "Not that much. I just wanted to get off to a good start," said Grap. Grap didn't catch yesterday because of some tendinitis in his throwing shoulder, but he caught last summer for the Maryland Orioles, a team that won the NABF World Series in Michigan.

The continuing education of Ravens center Gino Gradkowski has involved everything from grappling with massive Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to making critical, last-second line calls to adjusting blocking assignments. Ever since six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk retired in February, Gradkowski has been learning on the job and experiencing growing pains while trying to hold his own against some of the biggest, most talented defensive linemen in the NFL. The center position demands a lot: intellect, technique and brute strength.

Mount Hebron designated hitter Adam Grap completed an amazing week at the plate by slugging a two-run, first-inning home run and a game-winning single that beat defending 2A state champion Atholton yesterday, 4-3. Mount Hebron's 6-foot-2 junior right-hander Jonathan Raglin survived a three-run first inning to pick up his second win of the week with a complete-game six-hitter. Grap's decisive hit handed No. 8 Atholton (2-1 overall, 2-1 league) its first loss. "I hit a curveball," Grap said.

Mount Hebron pitcher Adam Grap was on the ropes in the first inning against Hammond yesterday. Four of the first five batters he faced reached base. He hit one, walked two, threw a wild pitch that allowed a run to score and gave up a two-run single to Joe Benedetti. Vikings coach Matt Forsyth had seen enough, and walked to the mound to replace Grap, who normally catches. Instead, Grap talked Forsyth into letting him continue pitching, and the 6-foot, 170-pound junior right-hander rebounded to complete all seven innings and notch an 8-5 victory at Hammond.

Ernesta Griciunaite and Sandra Liegute had met only briefly before they boarded a plane in Lithuania in September 2005. By the time they landed at Dulles Airport 15 hours later, each was the other's closest friend. The Lithuanian exchange students, both 6 feet 3 and experienced club basketball players, had arrived in the United States to study and play ball for two years at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, a small Catholic school in Essex. Not knowing anyone here, they were thankful to have each other - not just on the plane but whenever they felt homesick during the early months of their visit.

Grap gets job done for 8-1 Centennial Sport softball GIRLS Junior shortstop Michelle Grap led the No. 9 Eagles (8-1) to three wins last week with impressive work at the plate, timely defense and even improvisation. In a 1-0 win over Hammond on April 3, Grap went 4-for-4, driving in the game-winning run, and also snared a line drive in the seventh inning with the potential tying run on second base. Last Wednesday, she went 1-for-2 with one run scored in a 6-0 win over Atholton. In Friday's 10-0 win over Oakland Mills, she went 2-for-4 with a triple and a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Point guards aren't always known for big offensive production, but Mount Carmel's Briana Grap set a school record for career points earlier this week. On Dec. 2, the senior became only the second girl in Mount Carmel history to eclipse 1,000 points, and Monday night, Grapp broke the 1,140-point mark set by Kerry Weber in 2002. She scored 13 points in a 52-35 win over Havre de Grace to run her career total to 1,146. The senior has hit as many as six three-pointers in a game this season and shoots 41 percent from the field.
