Jessica Burns did everything she could yesterday to help Howard win its Class 2A state semifinal game against North Caroline at Randazzo Park.The senior third baseman made a run-saving catch of a sharp line drive in the fifth inning. Her two-out single in the sixth inning capped a three-run rally that tied the game and sent it into extra innings. And she paid the price for scoring a run in the ninth, colliding hard with the catcher.Remember her for that.For sure, Burns' two-out, ninth-inning error that allowed North Caroline to tie the game was costly.

One of the biggest reasons Howard is the favorite for the Howard County championship is the battery of Kelly O'Neill and Stacey Swiney.The first-team All-County duo from a year ago wasted no time establishing their presence in the No. 8 Lions' season-opening 3-1 victory over No. 15 Centennial yesterday afternoon.O'Neill pitched a two-hitter, and Swiney provided the offense with a two-run double in the fifth inning that proved to be the difference."We played well considering the amount of time that has been spent outside so far this spring," said Howard coach Dave Vezzi.

Howard sophomore Stacey Swiney, an all-county catcher last year, already has missed three softball practices this spring.And she'll miss at least two more.But who's counting?"When something like this comes along," Swiney said, "it's the last thing on my mind."That's because Swiney and her basketball teammates are still alive in the Class 2A South region playoffs. The Lions, who lost to Oakland Mills twice in the regular season, out-rebounded and out-hustled the host Scorpions last night en route to a 56-49 quarterfinal round victory.

Since then, Howard has won six straight, including yesterday's 5-0 decision over visiting Long Reach in a Class 2A South region semifinal.O'Neill's not about to change a thing. "I'm superstitious," she said.She's also on a roll.O'Neill followed Monday's 13-strikeout, two-hit performance in a 1-0 extra-inning win over River Hill with a one-hit, nine-strikeout showing against the Lightning.

Coach of the YearKelly Storr, Wilde Lake: "It was a fantastic way to go out," said Storr, who is stepping down after her fifth and most successful season. The Wildecats tied for fourth (12-6) in the county and were 15-8 overall, their first winning record since 1980. They advanced to the Class 2A South region final -- the school's first region final -- before losing to Lackey. When Storr began coaching softball at Wilde Lake, she had 10 players and no JV team. During that season, Wilde Lake had to forfeit three games because it didn't have enough players.
