DENVER - Led by Mike and Dan LaMonica, the Maryland men's lacrosse team captured the 2001 Denver Pioneer Face-Off Classic championship with a 10-7 win over Denver yesterday.

Denver stopped the run with a goal by Alex Stanton, but Combs added his second of the quarter with the extra man with 2:33 left in the period to give the Terps a 5-2 halftime lead.

College athletic coaches continue to dominate the upper ranks of Maryland's public salary structure, with University of Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon, football coach Randy Edsall and women's basketball coach Brenda Frese ranking as the state's three highest-paid employees.

Two years ago, Republican Del. Neil Parrott and MdPetitions.com had become so adept at petitioning Maryland laws to referendum that some Democrats, Gov. Martin O'Malley included, urged the General Assembly to make it tougher to do. How foolish that looks now. Over the weekend, the conservative group came up short in its efforts to petition to referendum the transgender rights law passed this year by the legislature. MdPetitions.com had only to produce 18,500 signatures by midnight on Saturday - a goal the organization had little trouble meeting previously when it petitioned same-sex marriage or Maryland's version of the Dream Act in recent years.

MARYLAND (1-9)This Saturday: at Wake Forest, Groves Stadium, Winston-Salem, N.C., 1 p.m.Previous game: The Terrapins' 44-21 loss at North Carolina State looked like the majority of their outings. They fell apart after a promising start and are threatening to become the first Maryland team to lose 10 games in a season. The Wolfpack kept alive its hopes for a sixth straight bowl game by erasing a 7-0 deficit and putting Maryland away by the third period with big plays and by capitalizing on Terps errors.

CARY, N.C. -- Maryland's men's soccer team reached the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament's final for the second straight season, eliminating North Carolina State last night at SAS Stadium, 2-1. Forward Jason Garey scored in the 37th minute and forward Dominic Mediate scored in the 72nd as the defending conference champion Terps (17-2 and the ACC's regular-season champ) controlled play in a game more one-sided than the score would indicate. Two Terps shots bounced off the crossbar. The Wolfpack (9-8-2)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Xavier was in the midst of putting together a great comeback when Maryland coach Gary Williams re-inserted shooting guard Drew Nicholas with about 10 minutes left in the game and the Terps ahead by eight points. Nicholas walked onto the court, stretched one arm and then the other. He bent over to touch his toes, and then looked to the mob of Maryland fans sitting behind the bench. He calmly nodded to them, and then he smiled. And then Nicholas, along with his best friend and backcourt mate Steve Blake, put together one exciting stretch in which Maryland scored on its next five possessions during a nearly three-minute run that eliminated Xavier from the NCAA tournament.

Partly as an offshoot of pre-war trade missions, partly to get in on the massive reconstruction of Kuwait, Maryland and local businesses have launched a major bid to participate in the rebuilding of that war-torn emirate in the Persian Gulf.Under plans drawn up by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which has been hired under a $45 million contract by the Kuwaiti government to lead the post-war rebuilding operation, construction crews will soon begin clearing rubble, repairing streets and seaports.

A federal judge in Washington has dismissed the high-profile discrimination lawsuit of a Gallaudet University official who claimed she was unfairly demoted for signing a petition to put Maryland's same-sex marriage law to referendum. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ruled April 14 that Angela McCaskill, Gallaudet's former chief diversity officer, had failed to show she had been discriminated against under the D.C. Human Right's Act -- whether for her religion, political beliefs or identity as a straight woman -- or that the university had acted negligently.

The debate over the minimum wage, both in Maryland and nationally, and related concerns over income inequality have provoked some unpleasant and ongoing side effects. The recent trend of billionaires flaunting their perceived superiority over the less-economically-well-endowed while simultaneously decrying "class warfare" and even invoking a comparison to Nazi persecution being among the worst. Yet the very parameters of the conversation seem flawed. Many people assume, for instance, that raising the standard of living for the working class necessarily takes away from those on the highest rung of the ladder.

Don't look now, my fellow Marylanders, but I think the Martin O'Malley victory lap has commenced. The governor, with a year and a half to go in his second and final term, has started telling us all about his impressive tenure. The governor gave a speech over the weekend that was mostly that - a way of cementing the local narrative about how his pragmatism and competency got us through the worst economic cycle in decades. Like everything else O'Malley does, it's all part of a strategy to enhance his standing as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2016.

Stuart Janney III slipped into Churchill Downs virtually unnoticed Saturday afternoon, a few hours after landing in Lexington and driving to the track with his wife, two children and son-in-law. The northern Baltimore County resident, who had avoided the Kentucky Derby fanfare all week, soon found himself as the center of attention. Orb, owned by Janney and his cousin Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps, captured the 139th Kentucky Derby Saturday through the mud in 2:02.89 to win by 261/27 lengths.

I appreciated reading the commentary, "Don't let Israel discriminate," (April 30) This is a concern that has been long documented by the State Department and a new bill in Congress has been written to provide a "look the other way" response to these racial policies and afford Israel visa waiver status. Rather than supporting this legislation, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin should be promoting the interests and needs of Maryland residents first. If there are citizens of Maryland who are discriminated against and refused entry into Israel (or any other country for that matter)

Thanks in part to one of the most productive midfields in Division I, the Maryland men's lacrosse team is off to a 6-1 start that included a four-week stay atop The Baltimore Sun's rankings. Perhaps even more impressive is that the experienced trio of John Haus, Mike Chanenchuk and Jake Bernhardt - two seniors and a junior - have been on the field together only since January. Haus and Bernhardt played together in 2011 while Chanenchuk sat out the season after transferring from Princeton.

COLLEGE PARK -- There were enough games on Marylands schedule last season that could have been the one to keep the Terps out of the NCAA tournament for the first time in 12 seasons, but senior forward Nik Caner-Medley remembered their last one, a loss to Virginia Tech. Determined not to repeat that disappointment, Caner-Medley made new memories last night. He scored a game-high 23M-5 points to help No. 22 Maryland pull away in the second half for an 81-72 win over the Hokies. Caner-Medley scored 16 of his points in the second half, including six in a 10-4 run that put Maryland ahead 53-46 with 14:44 remaining and finally distanced it from the pesky Hokies.

The mutual decision to postpone Wednesday night's showdown between UMBC and Maryland means that the top-ranked Terps will now have seven days between their last contest (March 2 at Duke) and their next one (March 10 vs. Stony Brook). It's the longest layoff of the regular season for Maryland, and coach John Tillman acknowledged some concern. “I think kids, you get them in a rhythm and get into a kind of systematic repetition and I think kids really flourish in that,” Tillman said Wednesday.

WRC-TV is reporting that Wilson said, "I misplaced it. I cannot tell you where the ticket is for my safety and my kids' safety, but I wish I could find it and get this thing over [with].
