Zak Porta pinned Westminster's previously unbeaten 135-pounder, Jason Brown, during a match-clinching, six-bout sweep for Mount Hebron, and 160-pound teammate Mike Mengel edged Nick Burger in the marquee bout as the Vikings routed Westminster, 55-12, in a tri-meet at Atholton last night. Coming off a six-point loss to 12th-ranked Fallston, the Harford County runner-up last winter, Westminster (3-2) figured to offer the stiffest test of the young season for third-ranked Mount Hebron (6-0)

SARASOTA, FLA. - The Orioles have released designated hitter/first baseman Jack Cust and first baseman Matt LaPorta, a pair of former major leaguers who were attempting to get back to the big leagues through the organization's minor league camp. There were five other minor league camp cuts on Friday: first baseman/outfielder Nikolas Balog, right-hander Casey Upperman, right-hander Zach Staniewicz, right-hander Julio Rodriguez and left-hander Harry Marino. With the amount of organizational depth the Orioles have built, there was no space for Cust and LaPorta at the Triple-A level with a looming roster crunch, so they cut ties with both so they could possibly latch on elsewhere.

Being pinned, or nearly so in wrestling, often is referred to as "counting the lights." And it was nearly "lights out" for Mount Hebron's 130-pound Zak Porta during the precarious 30 seconds he spent on his back in a cradle hold by Patterson's Donte Lovell yesterday. But Porta overcame a five-point deficit, with his overtime takedown earning an 11-9 win during a 48-9 victory by third-ranked Mount Hebron over the No. 15 Clippers. Mount Hebron (4-0) and Patterson (3-1) each won, 69-3, over City (0-3)

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

A comedian, a female preacher, a blues singer, an ex-slave, two civil rights activists and a battered but unbowed victim of the Ku Klux Klan.

"You Gotta Get a Gimmick" is the strippers' creed in the musical Gypsy, and no one expresses it better than Lynda McClary in the Maryland Arts Festival's production. Nor is the philosophy restricted to performers - director/choreographer Todd Pearthree has brought his own smart gimmick to this production as well. McClary plays Tessie Tura, a minor character but the dominant singer in Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim's comic "Gimmick" number. She's also an over-the-hill, overweight stripper who introduces Gypsy (at that point called Louise)

Unfazed by the emotions of the moment, unwilling to entertain any notion of an upset, Mount Hebron did precisely what it needed to do yesterday to beat Oakland Mills - it didn't blink. It was easy to see after the fact, when all the matches had been wrestled, how the Vikings emerged with a 29-24 win over the host Scorpions. They simply won the matches they had to, and in so doing remained unbeaten at 7-0, 3-0 in the league. But, oh, was it close. "I thought it was going to be a real close match, they're a very strong team," said Mount Hebron coach Michael Duffy.

The city of Laurel had taken it long enough. Sure, the geese were pretty to look at, but the pounds and pounds of droppings they left behind -- on picnic tables, on playground equipment, on rental boats -- turned the lakefront into a mess. Here at Granville Gude Park, a 29-acre oasis tucked behind an apartment complex and the Burlington Coat Factory, options were limited. Hunting isn't feasible in these parts, let alone legal. Residents would certainly scoff at any plan to euthanize the animals.

For the second time in as many matches, River Hill wrestler Scott Cannon found himself in a position often unfamiliar to a heavyweight. Cannon could either win and play the hero, or lose and be the goat. Easy choice. He was the hero. "I just know if it comes down to me, I'm not going to lose," Cannon said, moments after pinning Mount Hebron's Colin O'Brien in 21 seconds to give visiting River Hill a 32-25 win yesterday. "I don't care who it is anymore. I know I'm going to just go out there, give my all, and come out on top."

Cheerleader-turned-wrestler-turned-reality-show-host Stacy Keibler and high-end porta-potties? Now there's a connection we didn't see coming. At Thursday night's NFL opener in Denver -- you know, the one with the Super Bowl champion Ravens that's not being played in Baltimore -- Charmin bathroom tissue will be unveiling (and Keibler's rep confirmed this) a line of upscale portable restrooms, designed to give tailgaters at Mile-High Stadium and elsewhere "a clean comfortable experience.
