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.

They have handled similar situations the only way they know (( how -- with class.One is rich, famous and a future Hall of Famer.The other is a senior at Howard High.Say hello to Cal Ripken and Rachel Grantham."Cal Ripken would rather be playing shortstop, there's no doubt about it," said Howard coach Dave Vezzi. "But Cal's playing third base and helping his team. Rachel's the same way. She's not going to come out and say, 'I don't want to play second base, I want to be pitching.' She's going to help the team whatever way she can, and if playing second base is where she's going to help, that's what she'll do."

SARASOTA, Fla. - Travis Ishikawa doesn't remember getting hit square in the right cheek, only the glance of a fastball speeding at his head, then waking up on the ground thinking his jaw was shattered. "I have to say it was the best hit by pitch of my life," Ishikawa said. "It changed my life. It went from the worst thing in the world to the best thing in the world. " Ishikawa, a 29-year-old first baseman whom the Orioles signed to a minor league contract this offseason, was a San Francisco Giants farmhand back then.

If you're a sucker for feel-good NFL training camp stories, you'll want to hear about Tony Fein. Fein, 27, is an undrafted rookie linebacker out of Mississippi who's trying to catch on with the Ravens this summer. Depending on whom you talk to, he either has no shot to make the team or the kind of shot you have of hitting the trifecta at the track tomorrow. If he's lucky, he could stick as a practice-squad player. This would be bitterly disappointing to Fein. But it won't kill him. And that's fine with him, since the man has already seen death up close as an Army combat veteran in Iraq, where he served for a year as a 19 Delta recon scout.

[Editor's note: Cristie Kerr, a member of Team USA in the inaugural LPGA International Crown to be played at Caves Valley Golf Club July 24-27, will be blogging about her experience for The Baltimore Sun.] There is something about international athletic competition that can't compare to anything else.

HOUSTON -- You expect to find some high-tech laboratory with hundreds of leotard-clad clones running around. Lithe little Nadias doing their flips and tumbles in one corner, muscular little Mary Lous doing their vaults in another. You expect to see this great bear of a man -- and certainly hear his booming voice -- the moment you walk in the door.But Bela Karolyi's gym is different from what you expect, mostly because it looks pretty much the same as hundreds of other neighborhood gyms across the country.

Donnell Whittenburg isn't quite sure when his gymnastics career began, years before the medals, the tryouts and traveling across the country, but he can remember where it all started: the backyard of his childhood Baltimore home. The 19-year-old U.S. men's national team member, who will compete on Thursday in the preliminary rounds of the Winter Cup Challenge in Las Vegas, recalls performing handstands and other stunts outside his house, a practice his mother, Sheila Brown, didn't take to fondly.
