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."

APEX, N.C.-- --In a small North Carolina garage are Robert Henke's two remaining worldly possessions: a slightly banged-up 1967 Lotus Elan sports car and something that resembles a slim, 6-foot torpedo suspended from an aluminum frame. When he takes it out for the rare spin, the cherry-colored ragtop gets admiring looks from passers-by - though it is the metal cylinder that ought to grab the world's attention. But nobody cares. The product of more than $2 million and 25 years of development, the device might just be the holy grail of earthquake engineering: a probe that can accurately predict the way various soils will react in a major quake.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game and likely won't until late next week at the earliest. Yoon is slated to spend most of next week in Canada obtaining his work visa. He will fly to Ottawa on Sunday and has an interview appointment on Monday morning. That process is expected to take a few days, but it beats the alternative of Yoon traveling back to South Korea to get his visa - which would involve lengthy travel and missing extended time in camp.

SOCHI, Russia - In the wake of disappointing results that have seen its speedskaters on the verge of their worst Olympic performance in three decades, U.S. Speedskating may change the one factor it controls - its race suit. Under Armour heralded the Mach 39 - the much-hyped suit the apparel company developed with the help of defense contractor Lockheed Martin - as the fastest speedskating suit in production. In Sochi, U.S. speedskaters have yet to win a medal. On Thursday, U.S. Speedskating took steps to cover a meshed area on the back of the suit worn by Heather Richardson, the top-ranked women's skater in the world who finished seventh in the 1,000 meters.

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.

McDowell, director of secondary education.
