Loyola Blakefield's freshman soccer team completed a perfect 15-0-2 record this season in claiming the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title. The Dons also prevailed over B Conference junior varsity squads from St. Paul's and Boy's Latin. After starting the season with five consecutive wins, a trip to Georgetown Prep in Bethesda was the first real challenge for Loyola. "Both teams were undefeated, and we were unsure how the game would play out. It turned out to be extremely physical.

Every season, the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team has a senior primed to take command of the middle of the field. He's expected to provide leadership, be the settling influence and also make game-changing plays. An All-Metro first-team midfielder as a junior, Connor Smith has taken on the lead role with last year's All-Metro Player of the Year George Campbell now at Maryland. So far, so good. In Wednesday's showdown at No. 4 St. Paul's - a rematch of last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title game - Smith's dynamic play was the difference as he scored two goals and added an assist to lead the defending champions to a 3-1 win over the Crusaders.

CHESTERTOWN — No. 3 Westminster can now put its 4A field hockey state championship trophy and the perfect 19-0 record that goes with it on display with pride and satisfaction because the No. 11 Dulaney Lions made them earn it, 5-4, in overtime Saturday on the turf field at Washington College. It was the first of four championship games Saturday and set the stage with the kind of title game players and coaches dream of, with both sides competing at their best and leaving nothing to regret.

Catholic senior distance runner Ellie Gonzalez didn't slow down for a minute this year as she completed a fine four-year career in cross country and track. Boys' Latin senior lacrosse standout Shack Stanwick also proved to be a step ahead of the rest in leading the No. 1 Lakers to an undefeated season and, in the process, shattering the storied program's record book. On Wednesday, Gonzalez and Stanwick were recognized for their fine accomplishments this year by being named The Baltimore Sun's Female and Male High School Athletes of the Year at the 48th annual awards luncheon at the newspaper's downtown headquarters.

Saturday night's 45-35 loss to No. 15 Villanova will likely drop Towson from No. 3 in the Football Championship Subdivision poll when it is released later Monday by The Sports Network. But there may be a silver lining to the Tigers' first loss of the season. At 6-1 overall and 2-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association, Towson will no longer have to deal with the increased scrutiny that accompanies every team with an undefeated record. The absence of a loss can amplify the pressure on players and coaches to remain unbeaten, and coach Rob Ambrose suggested as much Monday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the league.

Jim Stagnitta made clear Wednesday morning while speaking on a conference call that he'd rather have his Denver Outlaws win the Major League Lacrosse championship than finish with the league's first undefeated regular season. But that doesn't mean the second-year coach and his players intend on shying away from history. "You can't help but think about going undefeated," said Stagnitta, whose Outlaws play host to the Bayhawks (7-4) today. "We're sitting there at 11-0, and if I talk to the players about limiting some of their playing time, I get the same answer back: 'Coach, I want to compete; I want to play until the end.'" It's easy to see why Denver has its eyes on finishing the season without a loss.

Orioles fans can be a chronically grumpy lot. They tend to roll their eyes and sigh loudly when the subject of baseball comes up. That's what perpetual fourth-place finishes can do to otherwise decent people. (To this one can only add, thank heavens for the Eastern Division's last-place Tampa Bay Devil Rays, without whom our collective mood would be left in the dark spaces reserved for the latest American Idol reject and Dick Cheney.) But today is different. It's Opening Day. Opening Day does strange things to baseball fans.

COLLEGE PARK -- Jordan Cargile jumped into her teammates' arms. The game was over. The championship captured. The perfect season complete. No. 1 Eastern Tech (24-0) knocked off Easton (18-3) 3-1 to capture the Class 2A state championship Friday at Maryland Softball Stadium. Cargile, a senior, allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings, as the Mavericks won the first state title in school history. "We were just attacking, attacking, attacking the strike zone," Cargile said.

As Garrison Forest fans waved posters and made sure to sit in the same bleacher seats at Goucher College they've sat in for the past two championship seasons, the No. 1 Grizzlies field hockey team took care of business on the field. Garrison Forest withstood a ferocious attack by No. 2-seeded Bryn Mawr and then pushed in goals by Bayly Jarrett and Erica Marshall to beat the Mawrtians, 2-0, and win the Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship for the fifth time in six years.

Johns Hopkins-bound Shack Stanwick had five points (two goals, three assists) and No. 1 Boys' Latin completed a perfect regular season in boys lacrosse Tuesday with a 13-8 win over No. 5 St.Paul's. The Lakers finish the regular season with an overall record of 18-0 and a 9-0 mark in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association AConference. The last time Boys' Latin had a perfect season was 2006; there have been only five undefeated teams in the MIAA since plastic sticks were introduced into the sport.

There was excitement and satisfaction and also a big sense of relief for the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team Friday at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium, an understandable mixed bag of emotions. Before that was a continuation of the excellent play the Lakers displayed all season as they overpowered No. 2 St. Paul's, 17-11, to claim the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship and complete an 18-0 season. It's the 10th league championship and fourth in the MIAA for Boys' Latin, which was the league's last team to enjoy a perfect season when it went 21-0 in 2006.

Perfection - once again - is one game away for the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team. The Lakers started fast in Tuesday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal against No. 3 McDonogh. And then, every time the Eagles came with a push, they had resourceful responses in coming away with a 16-10 win at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The win puts the Lakers at 17-0 on the season and in a familiar position: One win away from a perfect season and the MIAA crown.

Longtime NFL quarterback Earl Morrall, who filled in for an injured Johnny Unitas during the 1968 season and was named the league's Most Valuable Player for leading the Colts to the Super Bowl , died on Friday in Florida. He was 79. Morrall played 21 pro seasons and started at quarterback for five NFL teams, but he will be remembered as the ultimate understudy because of that '68 season with the Colts and the 1972 season in which he took over for an injured Bob Griese for nine games and helped lead the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins to a historic 17-0 record.

He wants to win the coveted Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship that has eluded the Lakers during his years with them. He's excited about the talent returning from a team that fell one game short of a perfect season last year, and he's quick to mention the hard work that needs to be...

COLLEGE PARK -- With four minutes left in Saturday's Class 3A state title game, the City boys basketball team was beating Westlake by two points with its perfect season on the line. Coming out of a timeout, coach Daryl Wade sent out a small lineup, spread the floor and told his group to be patient. Mostly swinging the ball around the perimeter, the Knights' next two possessions ate up a good chunk of the remaining clock before senior guard Kamau Stokes found an easy path to the basket for two more points with 1:41 to play.

Dom Damico McDonogh In 24 years coaching high school football, Damico never experienced a season as perfect as this fall. His No. 1 Eagles rolled over the competition by an average score of 36-8 to finish 11-0 and win their first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship since 2006. It was their third A Conference title but their first outright. Damico was also All-Metro Coach of the Year in 2000 when the Eagles finished 10-0 and No. 1 after winning the B Conference and defeating A Conference champ Gilman.
