After upsetting defending national champion and No. 1 Franklin & Marshall on Saturday, Salisbury was rewarded with the No. 1 ranking in Division III women's lacrosse. The Sea Gulls (14-0) have been in and out of the top spot a few times in recent years, but this is their first No. 1 ranking since April 2006. Saturday's 9-7 win at Sea Gull Stadium avenged last year's 11-8 loss in the national championship game and ended a 28-game winning streak for the Diplomats (7-1), from Lancaster, Pa. While happy with the victory, the Sea Gulls and coach Jim Nestor won't spend a whole lot of time celebrating their ascent to the top. It's too early for that.

Driver Tony Stewart ripped NASCAR last week, contending that the April 21 race in Phoenix, won by Jeff Gordon, was influenced by officials stopping the action with frivolous caution flags for debris on the track. Stewart lost a duel with Gordon. "I guess NASCAR thinks, `Hey, wrestling worked, and it was for the most part staged, so I guess it's going to work in racing, too,'" Stewart said on a Sirius Satellite Radio program Tuesday. "I can't understand how long the fans are going to let NASCAR treat them like they're stupid before the fans finally turn on NASCAR.

Record books show that former heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson, who died Thursday in New York, was the first man to win the title twice. Actually, Patterson should have won it three times -- and would have won it three times, if it weren't for a referee in desperate need of cataract surgery. The first came on Nov. 30, 1956, exactly 30 days before my 5th birthday. As a child born in the early 1950s, I remember Patterson most vividly as the first heavyweight champion whose name was mentioned by my elders.
