A major Wall Street credit rating agency revised its outlook of the National Aquarium's finances to "stable" on Tuesday, after the nonprofit attraction at the Inner Harbor last year experienced a dip in its position because of the weak economy. Last June, Moody's Investor Service cut the aquarium's bond rating from "A3" to "Baa1," which made it more expensive for the nonprofit to borrow money. The service this week affirmed the rating, which impacts $29.7 million in debt but changed its outlook from negative to stable.

1. McDonogh Coach: Harry Canellakis Last season: 14-2-2, ranked No. 1 Postseason: IAAM A Conference champion Outlook: The Eagles bring talent and depth that is difficult for other area teams to match, which could result in a wire-to-wire No. 1 ranking for a second straight year. All-Metro junior forward Bridgette Andrzejewski is the dynamic catalyst who will take on more leadership after some significant graduation hits. The Eagles averaged a whopping 5.2 goals per game against league opponents last season.

Even the arrival of spring Wednesday isn't erasing the possibility of snow in the forecast for the next few days. Forecasters are keeping an eye on two storms - snow from the northwest, and a weaker rain storm from the south - that could affect the mid Atlantic by late Sunday night or Monday, though it's too early to tell what, if any, impact there will be in the Baltimore area. Accuweather lays out the early potential here , with some parts of Maryland possibly getting a wintry mix or heavy rain.

1. Centennial Last season: Ranked No. 1 Postseason: Class 3A state champion Outlook: The Eagles return state champ Shreya Nalubola and much of their lineup from last year's powerful team. That's good news for Centennial and very bad news for just about everyone else. 2. Hereford Last season: Ranked No. 2 Postseason: Class 2A state champion Outlook: Much like Centennial, the Bulls bring back much of their championship team from a year ago, though they did lose a few more seniors than the Eagles and will need others to step up. 3. South River Last season: Ranked No. 3 Postseason: Third in Class 4A state meet Outlook: The Seahawks lost top runner Carly Bunting, and that will hurt.

Today should be a perfect fall day, with a high around 72 with lows in upper 50s. Good weather to enjoy the Baltimore Book Festival or the Orioles as they salute Brooks Robinson on this last weekend of the regular season. Sunday will be in the mid-70s with a slight chance of late rain. From Monday through Wednesday, the Orioles will play under the dome of Tropicana Field in St Petersburg, Fla., where they will finish up the season with three games against the Tampa Bay Rays . The weather there will be partly cloudy, temperatures in the low 90s and thunderstorms forecast every day. The dome's roof is lit orange when the Rays win, but perhaps this time they will light it up for the Orioles.

Television station owner Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. on Monday revised its outlook for fourth-quarter net broadcast revenue to a better-than-expected $153.8 million, or 6.5 percent lower than the fourth quarter of 2008. The Hunt Valley-based broadcaster had previously anticipated net broadcast revenue, from advertising on its stations, of $143.3 million to $146.3 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, or a drop of 11 percent to 12.8 percent. Sinclair, which owns, operates or programs 58 U.S. stations, including Fox 45 in Baltimore, said it has seen advertising revenue improve in the automobile sector because of increased spending on ads by dealers and domestic manufacturers.

When John Greeley aggravated the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the second quarter of Johns Hopkins' 8-2 loss to Navy on April 21, the junior midfielder joined sophomore defensive midfielder Phil Castronova (knee) as Johns Hopkins players whose status for 2013 was in question. Coach Dave Pietramala said the uncertainty regarding their return has been lifted somewhat as he has received positive reports from the school's medical staff on their recovery. “It's my understanding that both - and obviously, Phil is far ahead of John just because of the timing of the injuries - will be full go from the first day of practice in the spring,” Pietramala said.

I can't say I blame Towson University coach Shawn Nadelen for looking so depressed after the Tigers lost, 8-1, to Penn State on Saturday night. I've been covering college lacrosse since 1987, and that was one of the worst, if not the worst, performance I have ever seen from a team, regardless of division. The Tigers couldn't pitch and catch. They got outhustled and allowed the Nittany Lions to push them around the field. Towson's performance was on the level of a 13- or 14-year-old team in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association's B bracket.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) employment projections from 2012 through 2022 confirm what Americans already know: The nation is in a structural unemployment crisis, and the outlook is bleak. The U.S. job market has changed radically. Jobs are much harder to get, and better paying jobs require higher education or more advanced technical training. In 2012, workers with a post-secondary education or higher earned a median income of $57,770 - more than twice the $27,670 earned by those with only a high school diploma.

1. Boys' Latin Coach: Bob Shriver Last season: 19-1, ranked No. 2 Postseason: Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference final Outlook: The Lakers return an abundance of talent - mostly at attack and midfield - and also have more incentive than any team in the demanding MIAA after having their undefeated season spoiled in a shocking upset loss to Loyola in last year's championship game. Four-year standout Shack Stanwick leads the potent offense, which will carry the load while a largely new defense gets settled.

Maryland has spread the wealth on offense with 12 players scoring 30 goals, but the unit will have to match an experienced Orange group that has torched the net for 36 goals. Syracuse may use a rotation of senior Dominic Lamolinara (St. Mary's)
