When the second annual President's Cup baseball tournament came to an end Saturday -- with Mount St. Joseph beating last year's champion, Gilman, 12-11 -- the event's creator was already looking ahead to next year's tournament. Baltimore City Council president Bernard C. "Jack" Young, whose idea it was to bring city public school teams and private teams together in a city-wide tournament, said he'd like to see a clinic as part of the event, as well as an All-Star game featuring some of the best players from the other teams participating.

As soon as my husband walks through the front door, I usually can tell whether the high school baseball team he helps coach has won a game. A slow shuffle into the kitchen means a loss. A hearty hello means a win. But lately, wins by double digits have left him feeling defeated. His team is participating in the second annual President's Cup, a tournament in which nine of Baltimore's public high school baseball teams compete against seven private city school teams, with the championship game to be held next Saturday at Camden Yards - pretty heady stuff for any kid. The goals of the tournament, initiated by Baltimore City Council PresidentBernard C. "Jack" Young, are to reignite a passion for baseball among the city's youth, raise money to renovate city ball fields (as of March 24, it had raised $166,000)

As a certified athletic trainer at Archbishop Spalding, T.J. Morgan considers himself fortunate. He has never had to deal with a catastrophic situation in 14 years of administering to Cavaliers student-athletes. Such situations are rare, but should he face one, Morgan, like dozens of other trainers working in high schools all over the Baltimore area, is prepared. "The educational competencies for athletic trainers are changing and there's a greater concept of emergency management, of recognizing emergency situations and being able to act accordingly," said Morgan, who is also the president of the Maryland Athletic Trainers Association.

With 49 seconds left in the 132-pound final at Saturday's Franklin Invitational, John Carroll freshman Chris Scott was trailing by two points. He knew he had to do something, and do it fast. When the match restarted, Scott knew he needed a takedown just to tie. And he and his opponent, top-seeded Owings Mills senior Zach Shapiro, both went for it. Shapiro seemed to have gotten the advantage, but he couldn't hold it as Scott scooted away and got the advantage. And then, quick as a blink, the freshman had the senior on his back for a near fall.

Owings Mills wrestling coach Guy Pritzker had to smile following the first day of the Franklin Invitational. Heading into the tournament, Pritzker had heard No. 7 John Carroll and No. 9 Curley were hoping to make a point against his fifth-ranked squad. But after Friday's quarterfinal round, the Eagles have nine wrestlers advancing to the semis, and they lead the scoring at the 17-team event with 100.5 points. He still made a point not to fuel the fire. "It's only the first day," Pritzker said.
