As River Hill pitcher Kelly Smith can attest, there are few things better than a catcher who can bail you out of tight spots. Unless, of course, the catcher saving the day just so happens to be your twin sister. With Atholton and River Hill tied at 1 in the eighth inning yesterday, Kelly Smith uncorked a wild pitch with a runner on third base while trying to intentionally walk Raiders' slugger Katie Zitnay. But with lightning quick reflexes, Robin Smith scooped the ball off the backstop and fired it to sister Kelly, who tagged Atholton's Stacy Defino at the plate for the third out of the inning.

LAUREL - Pallotti pitcher Becky Zanelotti saved her most dominating performance for a most worthy opponent. Zanelotti registered her first no-hitter of the season as the fifth-ranked and host Panthers blanked No. 4 Institute of Notre Dame, 1-0, at Fairland Regional Park yesterday. Pallotti improved to 10-2 overall and 5-1 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland's A Conference. The Indians (10-2, 5-1) lost sole possession of first place in the league. Zanelotti, a senior, faced just two batters more than the minimum 21 and struck out four as she made good on a pre-game chat she had with catcher Christina Smith.

River Hill's softball team doesn't do blowouts. On occasion, sure, the Hawks will turn a close game into a rout. But for their part, one-run white-knuckle affairs are more their style. And while the added stress that comes with living on the edge might wear on some teams, the Hawks have thrived on it this season. Thrived just enough, in fact, to earn a share of the Howard County championship. River Hill defeated Howard, 2-1, yesterday, and coupled with Atholton's 7-0 win over Hammond, the two teams will share the league crown by both finishing with identical 18-2 records.

Let's be clear: Howard catcher Tee Dronenburg didn't forget how to hit during a recent slump. She just forgot how good it felt. Yesterday against River Hill, she gave herself a nice little reminder. Dronenburg, a first-team All-Howard County selection last year, had two big hits off Hawks pitcher Kelly Smith and drove in two runs as the Lions pounded out an impressive 6-2 victory at River Hill. The win wasn't surprising - Howard (7-2) got another solid performance from pitcher Kristin Gormus - but the way the Lions did it was impressive.

When she's healthy, River Hill pitcher Kelly Smith has a nasty fastball that can make even the best hitters look silly. And even when she's nursing a sore shoulder, as she was yesterday, Smith can pitch on guts and heart, and still make opposing hitters look silly. The senior hurler held host Mount Hebron to only three hits over seven innings, drove in a run and scored another run in extra innings to help River Hill grit out a 3-1 victory. Smith struck out six before giving way to Stephanie Hass, who pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the save.

Kelly Smith has been experiencing an identity crisis on the volleyball court this season.After leading the county in kills the past two years, the 5-foot-11 senior from Atholton High has seen her role change about as often as her team changes sides of the net."She's one of the best hitters we have in the county and I've asked her to be a setter and middle blocker," said Atholton coach Jon Peterson. "I've asked Kelly to do a lot of things and she's really come through for me."In nine matches this season -- seven wins and two losses -- Smith has recorded 38 aces while serving with 93 percent efficiency.

* Kelly Smith, Atholton, senior, hitter -- A three-year starter and a second-team selection last year, Smith, with one of the county's top all-around performances, led the Raiders to a 9-6 season that included three-game sweeps over Glenelg and Mount Hebron. At 6 feet, she was an intimidating hitter at the net, where she collected 37 point blocks and most of her #F team-high 172 kills. She also had a 94.6 service success rate and 58 aces. Smith also performed admirably as Atholton's No. 2 setter with 139 assists.
