FROM THE BEGINNING, it was suspected that the race for the Democratic nomination in the 7th Congressional District might become a duel between state Del. Elijah E. Cummings and Rev. Frank M. Reid III. There were some wild cards that could have upset that possibility -- veteran legislators such as state Sen. Delores Kelley and Del. Ken Montague or the well-known lawyer A. Dwight Pettit. But the two candidates with the most potential for raising money and appealing to voters were Messrs. Cummings and Reid.

Salisbury's march to Sunday's NCAA tournament semifinal against Stevenson includes a 21-0 record that has come with relative ease. Of those 21 wins, only two have been decided by four goals or less, and both were against the Mustangs. The Sea Gulls' average margin of victory is 13.1 goals. Competing in close games can build a team's resolve, but coach Jim Berkman said he's not worried about testing his players' mental toughness. “At this point, you don't care how you win. You just win,” he said Thursday morning.

NO. 5 MARYLAND @GEORGE MASON Sunday, 2p.m. Tianna and Tierra Hawkins had been teammates for most of their lives. Except for the one summer when they were on separate Amateur Athletic Union teams, the fraternal twins from Clinton played together through their years at Riverdale Baptist High. In college, however, the sisters went their separate ways. Tianna ended up at Maryland, while Tierra went to Delaware State. Both have flourished. Tianna averages a doubledouble for the fifth-ranked Terrapins, and Tierra leads the Lady Hornets in scoring and rebounding.

Mayor Martin O'Malley's public face may be focused on this week's bid for re-election, but his political ambition is already looking ahead to 2006. So the question for O'Malley isn't whether he wins Tuesday, but by how much - and what the margin says about his prospects of becoming Maryland's next governor. Planning for his political future also explains why the mayor seems to have spent more time and money on helping Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry than on his own re-election, an effort party officials say is meant to impress key state and national decision-makers, and wealthy donors.
