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."

Rico Wallace has already made history. Now it's just a matter of making the team. When the Meade alum signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent on Sunday, he became the first ever from his college, Division III Shenandoah University, to do so. The wide receiver is one of at least five former high school players from the Baltimore area who have signed with NFL teams following last weekend's draft. Despite coming from a small school, Wallace impressed scouts by running a 4.53-second 40-yard dash at James Madison University's Pro Day after making 67 catches for 1,241 yards and 14 touchdowns in his senior year at Shenandoah.

Et cetera Lewis survives Browns cut; Steelers let Redman go Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, who was believed to be in danger of not making the team's opening-week roster, survived the Cleveland Browns' final cuts Saturday. An impressive training camp by rookie James Davis and Lewis' average of just 2.6 yards on 24 carries during the NFL preseason fueled speculation that Lewis, 30, who has eclipsed 10,000 career yards, might be among the players dropped. "Jamal has lot to contribute, and I'm looking forward to seeing him as we go through the season," Eric Mangini, the team's first-year coach, said.
