Towson State coach Carl Runk got a phone call Monday from an old friend, Bernie Gramil."Carl," she said, "I was so happy to read that your team is going to the NCAA tournament."She paused. "I watched you play against Johns Hopkins a few weeks ago. I'm going to pray to St. Jude for you now that you have to play them again."Runk thought about that remark yesterday as he prepared the 11th-seeded Tigers for their first-round game against No. 6 Hopkins at 3 p.m. Saturday at Homewood Field."I didn't think we were that bad, that we need St. Jude's help," Runk said, referring to the 13-9 loss to Hopkins.

Carl Runk turned on the answering machine in his Towson State office and listened to a message from a woman who identified herself as his "Virginia sweetheart."A visitor's ears perked up. But, no, it wasn't that. The caller was Nancy Nolan, the wife of Danny Nolan, one of Runk's midfielders in the late 1970s who is confined to a mechanized wheelchair with Lou Gehrig's disease.The athletic director at Christ Church School in Virginia, Nolan was in Charlottesville for Towson State's upset of Virginia in the first round of the NCAA lacrosse tournament last week.

COLLEGE PARK -- Dick Edell thinks about it sometimes, and this week it is on his mind more than usual. Where would he be and what would he be doing, he wonders, if it were not for Carl Runk?The two men go way back together. It will be for only a few hours Saturday that they will be enemies, when Edell's team (Maryland) meets Runk's (Towson State) in the semifinals of the NCAA lacrosse tournament at Syracuse.Edell came out of Dundalk High to become an NCAA Division II All-America midfielder at Towson State in 1967, the year before Runk arrived as coach.

Carl Runk nervously walked into the last-second meeting with his Towson University lacrosse team yesterday. He stumbled through a prepared speech about continuing to work hard on academics and lacrosse, and then he broke down.Fighting back tears, Runk delivered the shocking announcement: He was resigning after 31 years and 422 games as coach of Towson. He quickly exited in a flurry of emotion as the Tigers gave him a standing ovation."After meetings with our president, Hoke Smith, and athletic director, Wayne Edwards, it is felt it's time for a change," said Runk 62, who will continue to teach three classes in the kinesiology department.

If it were not for Towson State lacrosse coach Carl Runk, Dick Edell's career might have ended up in the gutter."He gave me my first job and let me do things my way," said Edell, 47, who coached at Towson for two years. "Without him, I'd probably be managing a bowling alley in Dundalk."Instead, Edell will meet his former boss and alma mater in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I semifinals at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, N.Y., Saturday at 3 p.m. Edell coaches No. 7 Maryland (10-4)

Forget the record, the imposing bottom-line list of wins and losses. And even minimize the longevity that qualifies Carl Runk with having the longest continual coaching tenure at any level of college lacrosse.Impressive credentials, most assuredly, but they become almost frivolous in measuring Runk the man. He epitomizes what the call to the coaching/teaching profession is supposed to represent.Players, past and present, faculty associates, rivals from opposite sidelines and friends and neighbors gather tomorrow night in tribute at the Timonium Holiday Inn to express their respect, admiration and affection for this extraordinary individual.

At a recent team awards banquet, Hereford lacrosse coach Carl Runk took time to say a few words about sophomore midfielder Ryan Farrell. Among other things, Runk said Farrell has a bright future with a shot as powerful as his. Runk just didn't know the future would arrive so soon - with about four minutes remaining in yesterday's 2A-1A boys lacrosse final at UMBC. Farrell caught a pass from goalie Curtis Quinlin, stormed downfield and converted a bounce shot off the wet artificial turf, giving the Bulls - who would win the game and championship, 11-9 - their first lead over Salisbury's Parkside.

The principal of Evangel Christian Academy criticized yesterday reports of racial tension at his private school as "totally false" and insisted that when he said "I don't have any trouble with the coloreds," he was referring not to African-Americans but to South African "coloreds," a label for mixed-race persons used by the former apartheid government. That quote, first reported in yesterday's Sun, caused a barrage of angry phone calls to the school, administrators said. It was also decried by Derek Keenan, the vice president for academic affairs of the Association of Christian Schools International, one of the largest Christian school organizations in the world.

At least a half-dozen parents are withdrawing their children from the private Evangel Christian Academy in Rosedale after two former teachers accused top administrators of making racist comments. Parents say the allegations have added to an unstable atmosphere at the school, and that administrators will not respond to their concerns. The principal, E. Lamar McDaniel, repeatedly denied the allegations during a recent interview at the school. "I don't have any trouble with the coloreds," he said.

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania's first volunteer "trucking army" was deputized yesterday with orders to protect the state's infrastructure and nab terrorists who might be lurking on the highways. After a concentrated course in counterterrorism, the state's first 50 trucker recruits were authorized under a federally funded program to report suspicious activity to authorities - regardless of where they are or whether they are on duty. "Today there is no more important duty that our professional truck drivers can perform than to assist in providing both safety and security on America's highways," said state Homeland Security Director Earl Freilino.

Towson State coach Carl Runk wanted no part of those "phonies" dispensing and receiving Academy Awards. While his wife was glued to the TV set Monday night, Runk studied an old Loyola-Towson game film in another room.It was a revelation. Kevin Beach was a freshman then, tall and lanky and hardly intimidating. Now a 6-foot-5, 220-pound senior attackman, Beach leads Loyola with 16 goals."What struck me, after seeing him this year, is that Kevin has grown from a young person into a man," said Runk, whose No. 12 Tigers will play at No. 6 Loyola on Saturday.

The age-old lacrosse debate between Maryland and New York will be brought to life at 2 p.m. tomorrow at Loyola College, in the playing of the seventh annual matchup between all-star boys squads from the two states. A team featuring some of the brightest talent from upstate New York will vie for bragging rights against Maryland's team of standouts, coached by Carl Runk (Hereford) and Dave Allen (Gilman). Headlining "Team Maryland" is McDonogh's All-Metro junior attackman Joe Benson, who registered 70 goals and 49 assists this spring.
