For the second year running, Gypsy Queen bested the competition at the Tastes of Two Cities event pitting Baltimore food trucks against their Washington rivals. Baltimore's El Cuervo, which serves tacos and Korean fried chicken, earned second place, and D.C.'s Feelin' Crabby took third at Rash Field -- the new home for the event, which had its inaugural outing last year on the Westport waterfront. Souper Freaks was the winner of the United Way's Golden Carrot, a first-time award for the food truck with the healthiest item on its menu , the Five Seeds Farms Bronze Fennel and Carrot Soup, sourced entirely from local ingredients.

SESTRIERE, Italy -- It took plenty of blood, Swedish sweat and years, but Anja Paerson finally got to stand on a podium without having to look up at Croatia's Janica Kostelic. After settling for two bronze medals in these Olympics to go with the bronze and silver she won four years ago, Paerson, 24, claimed her first gold medal yesterday by winning a women's slalom conducted in pea-soup fog at Sestriere. She did it with a winning time of 1 minute, 29.04 seconds and a second run of 46.66 seconds that knocked Kostelic from third to fourth, denying the Croatian her seventh medal.

Michal Martikan edged out Lukas Pollert of the Czech Republic, the 1992 gold-medal winner.It was against the odds, but Chladek's silver was even more improbable than that.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- They regained some respectability, but lost their chance for the Carolina League championship.That was the story of the Frederick Keys last night, when Wilmington shut them out for the second straight time and clinched the Northern Division title with a 3-0 victory before 3,706 at Legends Stadium.In the two losses, the Keys were punchless, mustering two hits in an inning only once and advancing just one runner to third base.They were equally ineffective on the pitching mound in an 11-0 defeat Sunday at Grove Stadium.

The softball rivalry between North County and Chesapeake-AA picked up yesterday where it left off last season: quality pitching, an odd play and, once again, no room for error. This time the deciding break went No. 2 Chesapeake's way, and, combined with a 14-strikeout performance from senior pitcher Kristie Hurman, it was the host Cougars who came away with a 3-2 win over the third-ranked Knights. Chesapeake (10-1) got all of its runs in the bottom of the second inning, the last two unearned, and then was able to hold off two-time defending Class 4A champ North County, with Hurman retiring the last nine batters.

Glenelg starter Jeff Starcher's eyes lit up yesterday when he saw the unusual height of Atholton's pitching mound, one of the highest in the county.Starcher's best pitch is the curveball, and a high mound adds snap to that pitch.So it was no surprise that Starcher (3-0), last season's Baltimore Sun Howard County Player of the Year, threw his best game of the season, a five-hit, 4-0 victory over the No. 14-ranked Raiders (4-3 overall, 3-3 league). He struck out eight and walked three.Starcher's pitching opponent, Adam Beaver, also hurled a fine game, holding No. 9 Glenelg (6-2, 4-2)

Costly driver error puts U.S. 9th after 2 bob runsLA PLAGNE, France -- Chris Coleman did his job as Herschel Walker's replacement on the top U.S. four-man bobsled team. Driver Randy Will, who canned Walker, didn't quite do his.As a result, USA I was ninth after yesterday's first two runs, .76 of a second behind German great Wolfgang Hoppe.Start times, the reason Will sacked Walker on Thursday, were great. With Coleman as the brakeman, Will's crew covered the first 50 meters in 5.92 seconds on the first run, tying Hoppe and two-man gold medalist Gustav Weder of Switzerland for the fastest time.

ATHENS -- To overcome gravity and hydraulics, successful whitewater paddlers combine the speed reading of Evelyn Wood, the sight reading of Liberace and the muscle of Barry Bonds. The U.S. canoe pairs team of Joe Jacobi and Matt Taylor and kayakers Brett Heyl and Scott Parsons passed the first of their Olympic literacy and strength tests yesterday to advance to today's semifinal competition. An estimated 8,000 spectators turned the seacoast venue into an international beach party. Under a brilliant blue sky, they sang and boogied to oldies and applauded both the front-runners and those struggling to master the churning froth.

Glenelg waited for a year for a rematch with Calvert, the team that ended the Gladiators' season in last year's Class 2A South region championship. But their rematch in Friday night's regional final yielded the same result, as the Cavaliers defeated the No. 6 Gladiators 69-52 to advance to next week's state tournament. If there is one consolation to losing again to the defending Class 2A state champions, it is this: "This time they beat us, we did not beat ourselves," Glenelg senior Danielle Burris said.

Howard County Board of Education candidate Robert Ballinger has been a fixture at this year's county fair. He has been gathering ideas from county residents on what they believe works in the school system and what could be changed. He has discovered that people don't mind taking a break from the shows, auctions and food lines to offer their opinions. "They talk about individual issues with the schools. They think that teachers in the classroom, knowing the students and knowing the involvement of the families, should have more leeway," said Ballinger, who lives in the Dorsey Hall community in Ellicott City.
