Growing bored with kickball in gym class back in fourth grade, Jamie Dubyoski set his sights on an added challenge. So instead of just clobbering the ball off the gym's back wall and racing around the bases for yet another home run, he looked up at the basketball hoop at the same far end. Dubyoski had a strong right leg, but what about good aim? "Yeah," he said with a smile. "I hit the backboard a few times over the years. " Now a junior at Loyola Blakefield, Dubyoski is putting his right leg and much more to good use in a couple ways.

The par-3 fourth hole is particularly hazardous, with its long fairway that doglegs to the left.A driver would be recommended in most cases, but this is a much different case.No golf clubs are needed on this course. The dimpled little balls you're used to seeing are replaced by much bigger ones with panels.The holes are 28 inches in diameter, plenty of room to put a size 5 soccer ball through.A strong leg suffices for your woods, an accurate foot works as your putter and wedge. No caddie is necessary.

UMBC's shutdown defender this season came out of a physical education class once taught by Retrievers soccer coach Pete Caringi. It's an incongruity that still amazes - and amuses - the veteran coach. "Philippe was in my class, and he was a good player," the longtime UMBC coach said of Philippe Bissohong. "But it was a 0 percent chance that he'd be such an impact player at a Division I level." In the spring of 2006, when Bissohong walked on to Caringi's team, there was little about his game to suggest he would be a contributor for the Retrievers, much less one of the better defenders in America East.
