When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she shared a particularly uplifting experience from history class one day. In the middle of a lesson, a senior barged into the classroom with tears in his eyes and handed the teacher a letter. A smile spread across the teacher's face as he read in silence. The teacher then turned to the class and announced that the student had just received a full scholarship to an excellent college. The teen pointed toward the window and whispered, to the teacher, "If it hadn't been for you and this school, I'd be out on those streets selling drugs.

Even a three-goal performance from Kara Burke (Dulaney) wasn't enough for the No. 11 Loyola Maryland women's lacrosse team as No. 2 host Syracuse scored the last five goals and won in overtime, 14-12, on Saturday.

The run started with free-position goals by Annie Thomas (John Carroll) with 18:26 left and by Burke 1:13 later. The Orange (18-2) answered as Alyssa Murray scored two of her game-high four goals during the run. Syracuse's Kayla Treanor tied the score at 12 to force overtime with 41 seconds left.

And on the fourth day, the Orioles played. They won, watched it rain, and then they won again at nearly 1 a.m. with a walkoff homer by Matt Wieters in the 10th inning. After a scheduled day off Monday, followed by consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday - the first time they've been postponed consecutively since 2004, and the first time it has happened at Camden Yards since 2000 - the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates finally played on what was supposed to be a mutual day off Thursday.

It's Latin Night. Guest judge Ricky Martin starts the show with a performance, which is seemingly live. Tom Bergeron mentions that Danica McKellar broke a rib over the weekend, but she's out there shimmying and shaking during the intros, so girl is tough. First results of the night: Danica & Val are safe; James & Peta are in jeopardy; Amy & Derek are safe. Amy Purdy & Derek Hough, Rumba Amy and her boyfriend have been having trouble during the last year and a half and the idea of a "dance of love" gets her emotional.

Attackmen Justin Ward and Brian Schultz had put themselves in this game-winning situation at least a hundred times, first with the Maryland RoughRiders, their club team, and then later in college. So when the situation presented itself, they delivered. Schultz took a quick cross-crease feed from Ward (Old Mill) to finish a fast break 12 seconds into the second overtime, and No. 1 Loyola Maryland defeated Navy, 7-6. Schultz's goal finished off a play that started with a loose ball picked up at midfield by midfielder Brian Sherlock.

The path that brought Nelson Cruz to the orange carpet for Opening Day introductions at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon wasn't the one he imagined months ago when he became a free agent. But if there was any doubt in his mind whether he landed in the right place, those questions were answered quickly. As Cruz ran down the carpet before the Orioles' season opener against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox, Baltimore welcomed him with the long, exaggerated chant of his last name - “Cruuuuuzzzz” - a sound he had heard for several years from adoring fans in his former home ballpark playing for the Texas Rangers.

Stevenson University's Owings Mills campus was locked down for three hours Monday afternoon as authorities investigated reports of an armed person on campus that turned out to have been sparked by a pellet gun. Police said in the early evening that they did not believe any crimes had been committed, ending a tense several hours on the campus, which is separate from Stevenson's location on Greenspring Valley Road. The initial call came at about 2:30 p.m. Monday, authorities said, after two people saw what they thought was a person with a weapon and called 911. Investigators recovered a pellet gun from a vehicle on campus, and police said two students voluntarily came out of a building to be questioned by police about the incident.
