As I've said before, I'm an "Accidental Hamptonite. " I belong more in the "land of genteel decay," as a colleague once described Roland Park, than in a summer playground of the rich and sometimes-famous. That said, I have just returned from my 10th summer visit to Long Island, N.Y. Again I visited close college friends and their families. One has a house in East Hampton; the other is in Sagaponack, near the site of the Hampton Classic, where she and her daughter ride each year.

After scoring five goals in the first eight minutes Saturday, the Chesapeake Bayhawks offense was ice cold the rest of the way, dropping a 15-8 game to the Long Island Lizards on a sweltering night in Annapolis. The Bayhawks (5-4) took a 5-1 lead with 7:37 to go in the first quarter, but they only scored three times in the game's final 52:37. The Lizards scored 14 times in that span to blow the game open in front of 7,793 fans at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. "We didn't play smart lacrosse," Bayhawks coach Brendan Kelly said.

Seniors in the forensics class at St. Paul's School scrapped the traditional blue books and delved into a real-life mystery for their final exam. Instead of an essay, they applied 21st-century tools and technology to their investigation of an unsolved 170-year-old double murder. "It's our own episode of 'Cold Case,'" said Will Stokes of Hunt Valley. "They get very lucky on TV. Our job was more tedious. " Working in teams of four in one of the Brooklandville school's co-ed classes, the students took two weeks to study the 1842 murder of Alexander and Rebecca Smith, analyze the evidence found at their Long Island farmhouse, which was the scene of the crime, and draw their conclusions based on what they discovered.

After a roller-coaster season that featured a five-game losing streak and after failing to even make the playoffs four straight years, the joy and emotion that poured out of the Bayhawks was to be expected. Rookie attackman Brian Carr oll and second-year midfielder Peet Poillon (UMBC) scored three goals apiece to lead a balanced offense, while second-year defenseman Michael Evans (Johns Hopkins) anchored a suffocating defense as a youthful Chesapeake Bayhawks squad knocked off the veteran Long Island Lizards, 13-9, in the Major League Lacrosse championship game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
