Towson (8-6) still doesn't know the identity of its opponent in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. There are a number of scenarios, but the team will be either the No. 3 or 4 seed, which means an away game at either second-seeded Drexel (9-4) or top-seeded Hofstra (10-3). But the Tigers do know that they do not have to play until April 30, and coach Shawn Nadelen said the players will have Wednesday and Thursday off to re-charge and re-focus after Tuesday night's 15-9 loss to No. 9 Penn at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson.

In early April 1672, word went out and preparations began in South County, in the village now known as Galesville, for the first gathering of Quakers in Maryland. In fact, the Fourth Month (Quakers eschew the usual names for months) four-day meeting of the Religious Society of Friends is considered the birth of American Quakerism. What made the event an important moment in religious history is that George Fox, the English founder of the faith, was present to inspire and "convince" Quakers with his teachings.

Towson and Penn have met just twice, with each team winning once. Since opening the season with six consecutive wins at home, Towson has dropped two straight. Penn is 3-2 on the road this season. No. 9 Penn (7-3) has won four straight games and is assured of a berth in the Ivy League tournament. The offense is in the middle of the Division I pack after averaging 9.8 goals so far this year. Senior midfielder Zack Losco leads the team in points with 24 and is the only Quakers player to have at least one point in every game this year.

Friends will return to the title game of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference after yesterday's 14-5 semifinal lacrosse victory over Curley.That's not good enough for the Quakers, though.Neither are their two regular-season wins over defending champion John Carroll, which came by a combined 22-12 score.Under 13th-year coach Jon Garman, Friends won B Conference titles in 1987 and in '92 and '93, but John Carroll was in the A Conference on those occasions. So the Quakers -- winners of six straight games since a 9-6 loss to sixth-ranked A Conference power St. Paul's -- are looking for a win over the Patriots in the title game.

Friends left no doubts about the best team in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference this year.On the strength of a 10-goal run, the Quakers thrashed three-time defending champion John Carroll, 13-4, for the B conference championship yesterday at Homewood Field. It is the fourth B Conference title for Friends and its first since 1993."You just want to see the kids accept the challenge, and they did that today," said 13-year Friends coach Jon Garman, who was still drenched after his team poured the water cooler's contents over him. "Nobody had a bad game.

More than two centuries ago, members of the Society of Friends gathered in a stone meetinghouse in Ellicott City that embodied their ideal of simplicity. Quakers haven't worshiped in the building, now a private home, for 150 years. But several oppose a developer's plan to restore it and build a luxury home nearby. More than a dozen members of the Patapsco Friends Meeting, a local Quaker congregation numbering about 30, have signed a petition against plans that "give witness to the extravagant materialism, increasing inequality, and the self-centered individualism that are ever more prevalent in our society."

Severn's boys basketball team couldn't have given exiting Admirals coach Jim Doyle a better going-away present.For Doyle, who is resigning after eight years at the helm for the Admirals, yesterday's 60-48 win over Friends at Goucher College was more than a final victory in a tenure that produced a 97-67 record. This one was for the Armstrong Conference B Division Championship, which Severn had never won."We really wanted Coach Doyle to go out on a winning note," senior guard Jamand Mack said.

After an official demanded a new ball to replace a scuffed one midway through the first half of Maryland's game against Penn on Saturday, Terrapins coach Cathy Reese facetiously asked her team, "Is that why we can't catch it?" By that time, Maryland was already in full control and Reese was simply imploring her team to stay focused. The No. 1 Terps would eventually need a wakeup call to withstand a rally from the No. 20 Quakers before pulling away for a 15-10 victory. Maryland improved to 13-0 and is one of only two undefeated teams remaining in the top 20 media poll after Penn State upset No. 2 Florida, 16-11, on Saturday.

The Friends football team will forfeit Friday afternoon's scheduled game against St. Frances because the Quakers don't have enough players, Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association officials announced Wednesday. “Friends was down to 13 or 14 kids,” MIAA executive director Rick Diggs said. “They just didn't have enough players to play the game. It's a safety thing. We don't like for teams to forfeit, but we had to consider the safety of the kids.” The forfeit between the two C Conference foes will not impact postseason play because only the top two teams in the C Conference advance, and the Quakers were already out of contention at 0-3. They now fall to 0-4, as well as 3-6 overall.

Your recent editorial about the use of disciplinary and administrative segregation in Maryland prisons reflects the challenges I have experienced in attempting to secure data about solitary confinement in the state ("Torture by another name," July 8). As a member of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, which is addressing this issue across the nation, our team has found from our work in other states that reducing the population in solitary confinement - or isolation, as it is often euphemistically called - can result in considerable cost savings, less recidivism and a decrease in violent or suicidal behavior.

"I do not call you servants any longer. I have made known to you everything I have heard from my Father, so I have called you Friends."- Jesus in John 15:12 President George W. Bush's speech to the nation last week was forceful, clear, even eloquent. He talked quietly, but he talked tough. His steely resolve against terrorism has seemed to generate unity - a uniform desire among politicians and the public to mete out violence in retribution for the attack of Sept. 11, a unity rarely seen in this country of free expression.
