The pure ardor of first love is what 23-year-old Emory University graduate Christopher Johnson McCandless brings, not to a woman, but to the natural world in Into the Wild, the remarkable, energizing new movie from Jon Krakauer's book about McCandless' attempt to follow Emerson's advice and forge an original relationship with the universe. The movie sees his struggle in the round, as something foolish, stirring and funny - and also, ultimately, devastatingly sad. What makes the film so satisfying is that, in the hands of Sean Penn (who both wrote and directed it)

This girls lacrosse season has turned into one of the more topsy-turvy springs in recent memory, with upsets a near-daily occurrence and more teams than ever before vying for spots in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15. McDonogh has a firm hold on the No. 1 spot with Saturday's 10-9 win over The Washington Post's No. 1 team, St. Stephens/St. Agnes, and Wednesday's 10-6 victory over No. 2 Notre Dame Prep. After the Eagles and Blazers, the rest of the poll has turned into a jigsaw puzzle. Severna Park, two-time defending Class 4A-3A champion and a solid No. 2 until Saturday, dropped back-to-back games to No. 8 Broadneck and unranked Severn.

Three to four times during a 12-hour shift, McCandless takes a break and smokes in the hospital's designated area. She knows the health risks. "But I like smoking," McCandless, 36, said during a break at Louisville's University Hospital emergency room.

A number of county baseball coaches did outstanding jobs this spring. In addition to the coaching efforts by Arundel's Bernie Walter, Broadneck's Jeff Herrick, Severna Park's Jim McCandless, Chesapeake's Jim Simms, Northeast's Larry Williams and North County's Wayne Feuerherd among the public school teams, Steve Miller of Archbishop Spalding shined on the private school scene. A case could be made for any of the seven coaches to be county Coach of the Year. Walter, whose Wildcats entered yesterday's state semifinals seeking to add to their Maryland-record nine state titles, is the only county public school coach to lead his team to the final four this season.

COLLEGE PARK -- Have waiters ever forgotten your drink order? Do the kids acknowledge your existence only when they're demanding more cash? Nearly everyone in life can relate to being overlooked and unappreciated, but it's unlikely any group of athletes experience those kinds of feelings more regularly than college baseball players in Maryland. Despite a legacy that extends from Babe Ruth to Cal Ripken, lacrosse is the official state sport. That seal of approval, courtesy of the Maryland legislature in 2004, reflects lacrosse's standing in certain ZIP codes and the weight it carries on campus, where defensive midfielders get more recognition than guys who could be pitching for pay in the minors this summer.

After Severna Park outlasted Old Mill, 4-3, in 11 innings Thursday for the Anne Arundel County baseball championship, Falcons coach Jim McCandless pondered what the game meant. "Everybody was in the ballgame, even the kids who didn't get in," said McCandless, who has coached the Falcons to three of their four county championship-game victories. "It's something these kids will never forget the rest of their lives in terms of the intensity and the magnitude of that ballgame." Severna Park's Chris Crum lifted a drive to left-center, one of the deepest parts of Joe Cannon Stadium, leading off the bottom of the 11th.
