As Garrison Forest fans waved posters and made sure to sit in the same bleacher seats at Goucher College they've sat in for the past two championship seasons, the No. 1 Grizzlies field hockey team took care of business on the field. Garrison Forest withstood a ferocious attack by No. 2-seeded Bryn Mawr and then pushed in goals by Bayly Jarrett and Erica Marshall to beat the Mawrtians, 2-0, and win the Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship for the fifth time in six years.

There was no mystery about Seton Keough's strategy entering the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference volleyball championship at Roland Park on Friday night. It was another night of feed the monster. The Monster - otherwise known as senior outside hitter Ijeoma Igwe - delivered, giving the No. 3 Gators their first-ever IAAM championship in volleyball with a victory over defending champion Archbishop Spalding, 27-25, 25-20, 16-25, 25-18. Igwe finished with 21 kills on the night.

Seton Keough heads into Tuesday's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference field hockey playoffs as the No. 1 seed, an unfamiliar spot, to say the least. The Gators (16-3-2 overall, 11-0 in conference) won their last championship in 1994 -- before the IAAM was formed. Seven years ago, they were at the bottom of the B Conference standings. Then along came coach Tom Jester, who initially came to the school to help coach the junior varsity in an effort to save the program his daughter was playing in. The rest, as they say, is history as Jester was drafted into the varsity head coaching position six years ago and has worked to improve the team's record every year.

The Seton Keough field hockey team is having a year to remember in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference, and one of the primary reasons is the play of goalkeeper Becca Wallace. The senior, who transferred to the school two years ago from North County, has made 76 saves this season and shut out the entire B Conference. She has allowed only five goals out of conference to top-ranked public schools and A Conference teams as the Gators have built a 16-3-2 overall record, including 11-0 in conference.

Archbishop Spalding has been hosting a fundraiser for the fight against cancer for the past six years, but Thursday's field hockey game carries special meaning for both the Cavaliers and their opponent, St. Mary's, which is playing in the contest for the first time. Several weeks ago, Spalding librarian Janet Distasio, who was the team's honorary captain two years ago, lost her battle with cancer; and three months ago -- on July 13 -- St. Mary's student Sarah Anne McMahon, 17, died from complications of leukemia.

A four-year starter, the senior has developed into one of the area's most dominating hitters for the No. 3 Gators, who improved to 9-0 on the season with three wins last week. In Seton Keough's victories over Bishop McNamara (3-0 on Sept. 24), St. Paul's (3-2 on Wednesday) and then-No. 15 Archbishop Spalding (3-2 on Friday), Igwe totaled 107 kills, 15 aces and six blocks. Her most impressive outing came in Friday's win against Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference rival Spalding when she tallied 41 kills, six aces and three blocks in the five-game match.
