The Towson Tigers knew that navigating through the first half of their schedule would be a treacherous task. They had lost two of the most prolific attackmen in the country in Spencer Ford and Kevin Sturm. Only 16 letter winners returned from last year's 5-8 squad. Twenty-one freshmen, the largest class ever at Towson, graced this year's roster. Now that the Tigers have dropped to 1-4 with Saturday's 13-8 loss to Loyola -- the second top-three team to beat Towson in consecutive weeks -- all coach Tony Seaman wants to focus on is the next season.

The sixth season of the Charm City Youth Lacrosse League begins March 29 at Carroll Park, and its continued success over the years is a great reminder of Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate and current Attorney General Doug Gansler's passionate commitment to Baltimore City youth. In 2009, Mr. Gansler founded the league to provide a mix of mentoring, lacrosse skills training and league play to underserved Baltimore City youth at no cost. The league promotes positive social interaction, builds leadership skills and enables participants to forge relationships with leaders from the Baltimore business and civic communities, who speak at league practices.

SARASOTA, FLA. - For the players who don't already have their ticket punched for the 25-man major league roster, spring training is about to get real. The Orioles open the Grapefruit League exhibition season Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays in nearby Port Charlotte, and the competition for a small handful of open major league jobs begins in earnest. Of course, manager Buck Showalter would tell you that it's been real for a month now, since just about everything everybody has been doing down here since the four-day January mini-camp is observed and evaluated.

If you offer them a league, they will come. The fields of dreams this summer for more than 400 male lacrosse players are Ilchester's Rockburn Branch Park or Columbia's Cedar Lane Park. There, four evenings a week, sweat-soaked players - including former all-Americans, current college stars, those from the club ranks, a few just out of high school and aging weekend warriors - get yet another chance to play the game they love. The 20-team Howard County Men's Summer Lacrosse League, the most ever for the county, is thought to be probably the largest such league in lacrosse-crazy metropolitan Baltimore.

The Navy men's basketball team is eager to end a three-game losing streak, but the Midshipmen's next opponent is enduring an even longer skid. Loyola (5-6) has dropped its last four games and six of its last seven. The Greyhounds and Navy (5-6) will meet Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Reitz Arena in Baltimore in the Patriot League opener for both teams, but Midshipmen coach Ed DeChellis said there is a caveat to Loyola's losing streak. “I think if you look at their schedule, their schedule is very, very difficult,” DeChellis said Tuesday.

The biggest thing separating River Hill from the rest of Howard County's best teams this season is an offense that can strike from anywhere at any time. The No. 3 Hawks, defending county and state Class 3A champions, have proven finishers who can find the goal. On Tuesday at No. 8 Marriotts Ridge, the Hawks got perfectly placed goals from junior Alex Hamer and sophomore Jessica Hopkins, and their defense contained the pressing Mustangs in a 2-0 win. River Hill improved to 6-3 overall and 6-0 in Howard County, while Marriotts Ridge fell to 7-1-1 and 4-1-1 in the league.

The Orioles have decided to take advantage of a new rule that allows for the hiring of a seventh coach. Former big league catcher Einar Diaz, who was ticketed to be the field coach at Bowie, will now be an assistant major league coach, helping hitting coach Jim Presley as well as other members of Showalter's staff. “I've had Einar as a player [with the Texas Rangers in 2003],” Showalter said. “Einar is just a solid human being. He'll fit in real well to the clubhouse, pretty seamless.” Showalter said one of the most important things about Diaz is that he's a good batting practice pitcher, something needed with the departure of last year's third-base coach DeMarlo Hale.

Residents who live near the Jaycees Municipal Park in Westminster are likely to protest last week's request to keep the ball fields there lighted later into the night. Before they claim the longer hours will be an onerous imposition on them, however, they might ponder the situation in New Windsor, where idle and improperly supervised youths are running amok and destroying that town's civic life.The Westminster Jaycees Girl Softball League and Westminster Optimist Football and Cheerleading Association have asked for more time to accommodate the growing number of teams playing in their leagues.

Whenever Archbishop Spalding and Seton Keough meet, you're going to see a lot more defense than offense. Sunday afternoon, the No. 1 Cavaliers used strong inside defense against No. 2 Seton Keough's superior height to come away with a 49-36 victory, their second this season over the host Gators in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. Spalding forwards Shaquilla Curtis, Sherae Swinson and Camille Calhoun — none taller than 6 feet — countered 6-foot-4 Liz Brown and strong 6-foot-1 Achiri Ade, holding them to 21 combined points.
