Alix Membreno was not destined to play Division I college basketball, let alone become a key member of a team that has now made three straight NCAA tournaments. Recruited to Navy as a state champion and record-holder javelin thrower in New Mexico, Membreno quickly realized how much she missed basketball. It was during her year at the Naval Academy prep school that Membreno reconnected with the sport she had played throughout high school. "When I went to the prep school, I really thought I had made the most serious mistake of my life," Membreno, now a junior, recalled Monday night, shortly before she and her Navy teammates watched the NCAA tournament selection show from an Annapolis restaurant.

In his bunk aboard HMS Empire Javelin, Pvt. Charles "Harry" Heinlein felt gentle rocking as the vessel, packed with more than 1,200 American soldiers, awaited orders to leave Weymouth harbor for one of the greatest military adventures ever conceived. In the late afternoon on June 4, 1944, the West Baltimore native had no idea that out on the English Channel, one of the world's most capricious bodies of water, the waves were already so high, the forecast so gloomy, that Allied commanders were reconsidering their intention to launch a surprise invasion of Normandy, France, before the next sun rose.

Larry Bulman of Bethesda skippered Javelin to two trophies in the St. Mary's College of Maryland Governor's Cup yacht race, the overnight competition from Annapolis to St. Mary's City that concluded yesterday. The 30th running of the event attracted sailors from up and down the East Coast. Steady winds at 10 to 20 knots translated into some unusually fast times for the 150 boats competing in eight racing classes. "We had wind all night," said Ruth Way, a crew member on the 31-foot Trinity, which captured first place in the multi-hull class.
