Diane Searcy will turn 16 next week. That means she still qualifies for the National Duckpin Youth Association leagues, but you won't find her there.When her grandfather, Roland Jenkins, died in November 1991, members of the Thursday Sociables league at Fair Lanes Southwest asked the youngster to fill his spot.One of those members, Doris Roy, said: "Diane bowls like an adult, not a kid. She was only 14 at the time of her grandfather's death, but I knew that she could hold her own with the adults in the league."

$50M for R. Lewis? Goodbye, tickets Unbelievable and ridiculous. Where else can a pro sports person who is an obstructer of justice be blessed with $50 million for playing a game. Only in America. How asinine of the Modells to give away the store. Put this in your memory bank, sports fans: Ray Lewis will miss his fair amount of playing time this year to "alleged injury." I just can't take it anymore. I'm offering my ticket package to a neighbor for $10. Roy Brogrowski Columbia Billick, Newsome full of excuses Why can't Brian Billick and Ozzie Newsome just admit that they made mistakes in signing Elvis Grbac and Leon Searcy last year?

As the Ravens began their four-day veterans camp yesterday, Leon Searcy defended his reputation as intensely as he protects his quarterbacks. The former Pro Bowl right tackle wanted to set the record straight about a recent domestic-violence arrest, along with any lingering doubts surrounding a knee injury that sidelined him all of last year. Searcy, signed as a free agent three months ago, was charged with battery when Lake County (Fla.) sheriff's deputies were summoned to his Clermont, Fla., home after his wife, Sonya, placed a 911 call May 9. He allegedly kicked his wife in the lower left leg as she attempted to dial 911 after an apparent argument.

The Ravens expect to ride their second wave in the free-agent pool next week. But who will make the big splash? While the Super Bowl champions appear to have focused their negotiations on right tackle Leon Searcy, linebacker Jamie Sharper and center Jeff Mitchell, they have kept their top priority under a veil of secrecy. "I think by Monday, you're apt to see some moves that will take us further along the time continuum here as to what's going to get done," Ravens coach Brian Billick said.

The largest crowd in Ravens' training-camp history witnessed a night belonging to the kids. Before 12,000 fans at Western Maryland College, first-year running back Jason Brookins and tight end Todd Heap, the first-round pick, delivered the highlights, while the veteran free-agent additions of right tackle Leon Searcy and quarterback Elvis Grbac provided forgettable exits. The offense downed the defense, 16-12, in an intrasquad scrimmage measured more on performances than the final score.

The domestic-violence case involving Ravens right tackle Leon Searcy will be diverted to a pretrial intervention program, a Lake County (Fla.) state attorney spokeswoman said yesterday. The agreement essentially puts Searcy on six months' probation, requiring him to avoid any violent contact with his wife, Sonya, and undergo anger management training. If he successfully completes the program, the battery charges against him will be dropped. His probation also can be reduced to three months after a review by the state probation board.

The Ravens are "very close" to signing free-agent right tackle Leon Searcy, a league source said last night. The Super Bowl champions could finalize a deal with Searcy early this week, the source added. Searcy, a salary-cap casualty with the Jacksonville Jaguars, would team with left tackle Jonathan Ogden to give the Ravens one of the premier tandems in the league. Ravens coach Brian Billick could not be reached for comment last night, and vice president of player personnel Ozzie Newsome was at the league's competition committee meetings in Naples, Fla. The addition of Searcy could mean the end of two Ravens' careers, center Jeff Mitchell and right tackle Harry Swayne.

Leon Searcy, the Ravens' high-priced bookend on their offensive line, has been shelved for the year, ending the right tackle's season before even playing a down. After undergoing surgery to repair a partial rupture of his triceps tendon in his left arm yesterday, Searcy was placed on injured reserve, meaning he will miss an entire season for the second straight year. The Ravens used his roster spot to sign free-agent kicker Danny Kight, who will handle kickoff duties. Searcy, a Pro Bowl tackle in 1999, originally tore his tendon on the first play of an intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 3. He had surgery and was projected to return tomorrow against his former team, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

NOW THAT the season is complete and the emotion has started to subside from the Ravens' second-round playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, it's time to put the 2001 season in perspective. The Ravens had a successful season. They finished 11-7, and lost to the team that will probably play the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans in about two weeks. Oh, the Ravens had lots of luck, but with the exception of the dominating Steelers, which team didn't in the AFC playoffs?

If Leon Searcy returns with sound body - and presumably a different price tag - the injured right tackle may receive a second chance with the Ravens. Two weeks ago, Ravens senior vice president of football operations Ozzie Newsome had a meeting with Searcy and informed him that he was tentatively in the team's plans for next season. "We still feel like a healthy Leon Searcy can be a productive player for us," Newsome said. "A healthy Searcy again could be one of the top 10 right tackles in this league."

A Baltimore County accountant has sued Baltimore Ravens tackle Leon Searcy for breaking a contract to buy a house in Reisterstown for $699,999 last spring. The suit, filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court this month, alleges that Searcy and his wife, Sonya, reneged on an agreement, signed April 14, to buy a house in the 3800 block of Timber View Way with two kitchens, two living rooms, five bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms. The owner of the house, Donald N. Hoffman, a certified public accountant and businessman, claims in his suit that he made improvements to the house at the Searcys' request, spending $11,500 to install new carpet, and upgrade the roof, electricity and plumbing.

Leon Searcy's nagging health problems added intrigue to the Ravens' offensive line and opened a spot on the roster for kicker Danny Kight, who is supposed to shore up the kickoff coverage team, another weak spot for the defending Super Bowl champions. Matt Stover can add to his NFL record of 32 straight games with a field goal tomorrow at PSINet Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the All-Pro kicker has a strained quadriceps muscle that has meant shorter kickoffs and good field position for the opposition.

There are times when offensive linemen must think like cornerbacks. When a team racks up seven sacks and takes the quarterback out of the game early - as the Cleveland Browns' defense did in a win over the Ravens last Sunday - then the cornerbacks' credo of "forget it and move on" can help linemen. "We have to think positive," said Ravens guard Edwin Mulitalo. "They say cornerbacks have short memories because they have to forget that last play. Well, that is the same thing [linemen] have to do. If you give up a sack, get up and go back and fight again, because it's going to be a long season and a long battle."

Offensive tackle Leon Searcy's debut as a Raven may be later than anticipated. Searcy was shooting for Sunday's game against Jacksonville after practicing last week for the first time since tearing his left triceps tendon early in the preseason. But coach Brian Billick said Searcy, who will likely move back into the starting lineup when he is ready to play, is questionable at best for the Jaguars game. The news is better for left guard Edwin Mulitalo, whose injured left knee may be well enough for him to practice on later this week and play Sunday.

After yesterday's scrimmage, offensive tackle Harry Swayne has rediscovered the backup's credo: Be ready at all times. Starter Leon Searcy injured his triceps on the first play of the scrimmage, putting Swayne back in his familiar position at right tackle with the first team. Swayne had spent the past week working at left tackle behind Jonathan Ogden. "It was a little strange," Swayne said. "Leon went down early. I pray to God he'll be OK. I haven't flip-flopped like that since my fourth year in the league.

Ravens right tackle Leon Searcy won't play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and when or if he plays this season should be determined today. Searcy did not practice yesterday. Instead, he had tests on his left arm, which is still recovering from a torn triceps muscle suffered during an intrasquad scrimmage in training camp. The team had hoped to have Searcy back for his first game as a Raven on Sunday. If tests on his arm reveal further damage, there is a chance Searcy will need surgery again.
