To Navy coach Cindy Timchal, it was only fitting that senior Jasmine DePompeo broke the all-time Patriot League scoring record on Saturday with an assist. "It just comes from Jas very genuinely being an unselfish player," Timchal said. DePompeo's feed to Aimee Gennaro 13:10 into the game -- one of five assists on the day for the attacker -- broke the 17-year-old record, helping stake the No. 12 Midshipmen to an early lead in a 12-6 win over visiting Colgate. It marked the seventh straight win for Navy, which improved to 14-1 (5-0 league)

You ever kill anyone? "It's unusual, I understand that, what I've done," says Bathgate, 24, of Dundalk, now out of the military and studying kinesiology at Towson University. "Still, it's annoying. … Naturally, I feel different" from the other, mostly younger students on campus.

In mourning the death of her son, Janet Manion started a foundation in his honor in the family's hometown of Doylestown, Pa.
