When Alex Trent of Columbia tried out last fall for the premier hockey team in the Baltimore-Washington area, the Little Capitals, he was one of the final cuts.The coaches told him he was a good player, but that he needed to improve several areas of his game.In September, Trent will try out for the AA-level team again. This time, Trent, 16, thinks his chances of making the squad are good, especially after participating in a weeklong regional 16-and-under hockey development camp at St. Cloud State University (Minn.

The lone remaining obstacle in the approval of the sale of the Bandits franchise to Cincinnati interests by the American Hockey League has been overcome and, once again, Baltimore is without pro hockey.The new Cincinnati franchise and its majority owner, Jerry Robinson, operator of the Cincinnati Gardens, gained approval from the AHL by signing an affiliation agreement with Anaheim. The team will adopt the parent club's nickname of Mighty Ducks.The sale price of $2 million, plus what the team will pay Anaheim for the players it provides, are only part of the problem the new franchise will have making a go of it in an old building.

Shannon Troyer and Elizabeth Gordon have officiated field hockey and girls lacrosse games for several years, and each has tried to recruit friends to referee without much success. The women, who played both sports in high school, said officiating was a natural progression after Troyer, 26, played field hockey at Delaware and Gordon, 28, played club lacrosse at Maryland. They love the job and have encouraged others to try it to help ease a shortage of referees in field hockey and, to a lesser extent, lacrosse.

Though Burdt did not make the all-America team (only one Maryland player did), St. Paul's coach Sandy Hoody said just being nominated is an honor."Very few in Maryland make that team," said Hoody, who played andcoached at Towson State in Baltimore County and coached at Princeton(N.

Cherry will begin his ESPN gig tonight on SportsCenter after the first game of the Eastern Conference finals between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins. He'll do post-game analysis during the conference finals, and contribute both pre-game and post-game during the Stanley Cup Finals. Cherry, whose nickname is Grapes, is simply not to be missed, if only for his sartorial shock value, which is so brilliant at times that Cherry has to wear sunglasses. I think it's to protect his retinas from his own reflection off the glass around the rink.

Imagine going to summer camp and finding out you may never have to leave. That's how 18-year-old rookie defenseman Brendan Witt feels, as he and the Washington Capitals negotiate a contract that would keep him on the roster.All Witt wanted when he arrived for training camp was to find out what NHL competition was like and then go back to Seattle, to his Western Hockey League club, and continue working toward his goal of making the big time.Now, six days before Washington opens the regular season in Winnipeg, Witt stands a good chance of becoming the first Capitals' first-round draft choice to make the team's opening-day roster as a rookie since Scott Stevens did it in 1982.

MERIBEL, France -- Before they received their gold medals, before the Olympic flag was raised and the Olympic anthem was played, the kids dressed in red and the coach dressed in the gray pinstripe suit would have this moment on the big sheet of ice perched a mile high in the French Alps.The kids tossed this old hard-liner named Viktor Tikhonov into the air, threw him up as if he were a sack of potatoes. Caught him, and tossed him again. Laughed with the old man, too.And the old man's face crinkled up into a smile.

What a letdown. I get all excited about the U.S. hockey team's Olympic opener, and it's nothing but disappointment.But, you say, what about the Americans' comeback from two goals down in the last period for a 4-4 tie? That's not what I'mtalking about, and if you're going to start interrupting me now, we're facing a very long two weeks.The problem with the game wasn't the result; it was the absence of goalie cam.U.S. goaltender Mike Dunham elected not to wear the special camera, which is mounted on the side of the goalie's mask.

The fact that our two major winter sports have reached their respective championship series makes for an inevitable comparison.The NBA is, of course, riding high, with its marquee player, Michael Jordan, and marquee team, the Chicago Bulls, in its ultimate showcase, bringing strong ratings for NBC.Meanwhile, the NHL plays the little league that could, continuing a solid if not spectacular climb on the way to imprinting itself in the American consciousness as...

When a platoon of Canadians spills into the United States carrying helmets, gloves and long sticks, one word traditionally comes to mind: hockey.But yesterday, the Oshawa Blue Knights from outside Toronto cut a swath through the fields of Cockeysville as testament to the fastest-growing sport of the northern neighbors: lacrosse.The 9- and 10-year-olds became the 1999 STX-Cockeysville Invitational Tournament's star attraction not just for winning three games in as many hours. The team traveled the farthest among 102 teams participating.
