No. 11 Chesapeake-AA scored five runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back in Tuesday's Class 4A state semifinal at the University of Maryland's Shipley Field, rolling to a 9-1 victory over Urbana. The Cougars (18-7) were led by senior shortstop Michael Marsh, who added insurance runs with two-run homers in the fourth and sixth innings. Junior pitcher Jason Seitler was dominant again, allowing just three hits in a complete-game effort for Chesapeake. The right-handed ace has anchored the Cougars' pitching staff all season.

The U.S. team pretty quickly threw out any concerns about a letdown game in the semifinals of the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships on Thursday night in Commerce City, Colo. Team USA, coming off a dominant 18-5 win over the Iroquois Nation on Tuesday night, easily could have looked past an Australia team it beat, 16-7, in pool play. Instead, the United States jumped out to a 7-0, first-quarter lead on the Aussies and never slowed, winning, 22-3, at Dick's Sporting Goods Park to advance to Saturday night's gold-medal game against Canada for the fifth straight time.

A six-year absence from the NCAA semifinals would usually sound the alarm at Johns Hopkins, where national championships are not a dream but almost an expectation. It's the longest drought in program history and one that has not escaped the notice of coach Dave Pietramala. But rather than hide from the disappointment, Pietramala is meeting it head-on. “That's the goal, and you want to meet your goals,” he said of reaching the Final Four. “We re-established the standard and raised the bar a little bit [by reaching the quarterfinals last month after sitting out the NCAA tournament in 2013]

In bold black letters across the back of Calloway Lee's Catonsville High wrestling hoodie are two words: Bone Crusher. Take a quick glance at the senior heavyweight wrestler's 5-foot-9, 220-pound frame and couple that with his accolades as the captain and MVP of the Comets' football and wrestling teams, and the nickname is warranted. But ask those around Lee, and they have different words for him. Once that hoodie comes off, the real Calloway Lee - one they say always puts others before himself - takes to the field or mat. "I think he's probably one of the most caring athletes I've been around," Catonsville football coach Rich Hambor said of Lee, who plays defensive line and running back.

Deemer Class was at M&T Bank Stadium in 2010 when Duke beat Notre Dame, 6-5, in overtime to capture the first men's lacrosse national title in school history. Now he'll have a chance to win his own championship at the stadium where he grew up watching the Ravens.
