Liberty senior left fielder Kayla Coughlin has rebounded from a disappointing junior season, leading the team with a .474 batting average. The tri-captain played a key role in the Lions' first victory of the season last week, as she had two hits and scored a run in the 6-5 win over Westminster in nine innings. Coughlin is the team's leadoff hitter, has not made an error this season and has played three seasons of summer league softball for the Freedom Firebirds, who were coached by Dick Smith, her Liberty coach.

After 41 consecutive appearances in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament, No. 13 Johns Hopkins was left out of the 16-team field when it was announced Sunday night. The program's run had been the longest active streak in Division I in all sports - just ahead of Miami baseball (40 straight) and Virginia men's soccer (32). "We're very disappointed," Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala said. "It was not how we set out to have this thing finish. I'm certainly disappointed for our team and our seniors.

Craig Tatum understands why the Orioles are proceeding cautiously with the tweaked muscle in his right side. They don't want him to make it worse, end up really hurt and lose the battle for reserve catcher because he was injured. Tatum gets that thinking, but he's got a flip side. "I want to make the team. I can't make the team not playing," said Tatum, who is competing with Jake Fox to back up Matt Wieters . "But I'll do whatever they tell me to do. They know a lot more about it than I do. " Tatum said he felt tightness in his right side after he slipped on the plate during infield drills.

Call me crazy, but I'm rooting for Sammy Sosa to make the Texas Rangers' 25-man roster as a spring training invitee. I'll take any interesting story line, and that one will be worth following. Too bad the Rangers train in Arizona after all those years in Port Charlotte, Fla. Not exactly a short drive from Fort Lauderdale. Sosa only needs 12 home runs to reach 600 for his career and be shunned by Hall of Fame voters. It's amazing how expectations have changed since Sosa joined the Orioles.

ASHBURN, Va. -- When Joe Salave'a limped out of Texas Stadium with a deep bruise in his right calf after the Washington Redskins lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 17, there was concern that the team's defensive line would have a problem filling the void left by the veteran tackle. His replacements were rookies, Kedric Golston and Anthony Montgomery, neither of whom were high draft choices. Both had shown enough during training camp and in the preseason to make the team, but playing in a regular-season game, even against the lowly Houston Texans, was different.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - The story of Michael Jordan getting cut from his high school team as a sophomore has been well documented. Not so many know the same thing happened to Clyde Drexler. "They threw me out of the gym," Drexler said yesterday at the Basketball Hall of Fame. "I was terrible. It was a wake-up call. It let me know that only the best players are going to make the team." Drexler did make the team the next year. Clyde "The Glide" went on to play for the University of Houston's high-flying Phi Slamma Jamma team with Hakeem Olajuwon, then for 15 years in the NBA with the Portland Trail Blazers and Houston Rockets.

Oregon sitting on top never did quite sit right, but we can report order has been fully and faithfully restored. Someone down at the sanity office got wind before it was too late and priority-rushed Auburn to the fore, while simultaneously returning the Southeastern Conference Network to regularly scheduled deprogramming. Whew, that was close. Only days ago, the Ducks were college football's jet-set juggernauts and Auburn was the team trailing Georgia 21-7. The Pacific-10, for weeks, was rated as the nation's top conference.

The Ravens' receiving corps took another hit Tuesday when veteran Derrick Mason dislocated the middle finger on his right hand trying to scoop up a low throw from quarterback Joe Flacco. Mason suffered the injury during the team's morning practice, went to the locker room for treatment and returned later in street clothes with a wrap on the finger. Coach John Harbaugh said Mason jammed the finger but that "we don't anticipate any problems." Whether Mason, 35 and in his 13th season, will play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins is uncertain, but the shortage of wide-outs could be problematic.

Tired of spoiled athletes dominating the headlines? Then you want to hear about Cedric Peerman. Peerman is the University of Virginia running back who was taken by the Ravens in the sixth round of the NFL draft. He has been at the team's minicamp in Owings Mills this week, busting his butt in every drill, accelerating up and down the field like he's turbo-charged. When the 2 1/2 -hour practices are over, he puts in an extra 25 minutes of agility work on a back field. Then, tired and hungry, he comes off the field and patiently does an interview, looking the reporter in the eye and answering each question thoughtfully.

A funny thing happened to the Blast en route to the playoffs last season - it didn't make them. Now, the team has refueled and is aiming to return to its customary position atop the Major Indoor Soccer League, beginning tonight when the defending champion Philadelphia KiXX visit 1st Mariner Arena for the kickoff of the league's season. "As an organization, we take it personally that we didn't make it," general manager Kevin Healey said. "We've reloaded a bit, and we're ready to make our mark."

He leads the Ravens in tackles this preseason, is blessed with some of the quickest feet among the team's linebackers, and is one of the top backups. Yet Dennis Haley can't rest easy. In the NFL, where the only thing that's guaranteed is that there is no guarantee, job security is never cemented until the final day of cuts. That's why Haley isn't taking anything for granted until after Saturday - the day teams are required to trim down to the 53-player limit. "I can take confidence that I have game experience and that I've played," said Haley, 25, who played in the Ravens' final nine games last season and had a career-high 10 tackles and two deflected passes against the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 12. "But it's just one of those things where that's how it goes in this job. I can't say I'm worried.

Running backs: Errict Rhett and Jay Graham are competing for the No. 2 position behind Priest Holmes. Coach Brian Billick will probably keep only one, but there is an outside chance he might keep both because Rhett plays well on special teams. Steve Broussard and Eric Metcalf are challenging for the role as the third-down back, and only one will likely make the team.Offensive line: Everett Lindsay is making his second straight start at left guard for the often-injured James Atkins. Keep an eye on center Jeff Mitchell, who was responsible for two sacks last week, according to the coaching staff.
