The St. Paul's-Maryvale volleyball match featured some interesting subplots. St. Paul's coach Kelli Wilkinson is good friends with Maryvale coach Jim Jung. Players from both teams know each other well and have often played together in club competition. In addition, the schools are about a minute apart on Falls Road, and both teams carried undefeated record into yesterday's match at St. Paul's. But No. 1 St. Paul's used the power of Bailey Griswold and Bailey Webster at the net to pull off a not-so-easy 25-23, 25-19, 25-16 sweep of No. 13 Maryvale.

THERE WAS no formal announcement on the February day that Benjamin H. Griswold IV retired as senior chairman of Deutsche Bank Securities. Just a party in New York and words of thanks. But when the 64-year-old Griswold walked out the door, so did the last link to Alexander Brown, the man who started the first investment-banking house in the country, and to the seventh generation in his family to work at the firm. For the past six years, the former Alex. Brown chairman had worked at Deutsche Bank Securities, whose parent snapped up Brown when it bought Bankers Trust in 1999.

The Meyerhoff and Griswold families have jointly pledged $1 million to the Maryland Historical Society to help it complete a four-year capital campaign, society officials said. The gift -- each family is contributing $500,000 -- would be one of the largest ever given to the Mount Vernon institution. It marks the first time the two prominent families have joined forces in philanthropy. The pledge comes in the form of a "challenge" requiring the society to complete its fund raising by year's end. The campaign has raised $26 million, including the joint gift, and seeks another $3 million.

Of the fates that might await the Most Rev. Frank T. Griswold after he retires as the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States, obscurity will not be one of them. When the history of the angry disputes in mainline Protestantism over the acceptance of homosexuality is written, Griswold, 68, will be remembered for leading the Episcopal Church when it elected the first openly gay man as a bishop. The decision deeply offended some in the church, and many primates of the worldwide Anglican Communion, of which the Episcopal Church is the American arm, saw it as a blatant disregard of Scripture.
