Led by top-seeded Mike Mulieri, a parade of collegians marched into the quarterfinal round of the Maryland State Amateur men's tournament yesterday at the Elkridge Club. All eight remaining players are either enrolled in college or, in the case of Jeff Castle, have recently graduated. Castle, who meets Loyola student Mulieri this morning in an intriguing matchup, finished at Towson University earlier this spring. Play was again suspended yesterday because of thunderstorms and lightning - this time twice - and was prolonged into the early evening, partially due to a 24-hole match that Maryland student Zachary Lese wrapped up by escaping a hazard and parring the difficult No. 6 hole.

As Pat Tallent approached Mike McCoy and Gene Elliot to congratulate them on their victory in the Chesapeake Cup yesterday at Caves Valley Golf Club, all three men cracked a smile. They knew what was coming. "You gave away your secrets," Elliot chided Tallent before the latter could even shake their hands. In a tournament in Florida at the end of April, Tallent gave a putting lesson to Elliot, who was struggling mightily with his short game at the time. The irony was not lost on Tallent.

The Ottobar will rock out - girl-style, that is - Saturday at the 2003 EstroFest. The show, a benefit for the local House of Ruth women's shelter, will feature five mostly female bands from the Baltimore-Washington area, including the garage punk duo Mongoloidian Glow. Event co-organizer Kate Tallent said the evening will start off "fairly low-key" with a 30-minute feminist puppet show titled "The Miss America." Then, the music starts with an emo-folk set from The Rare Animal Zoo. But don't expect any Sarah McLachlan covers or tributes to Jewel.

CHEVY CHASE - As far as Brian Quackenbush was concerned, the final round of the 75th annual Middle Atlantic Amateur championship at Columbia Country Club yesterday did not begin until the 11th hole. That's when the third-round co-leader trailed comeback artist Pat Tallent by three strokes. But when play ended on a sunny day marked by gusty, swirling winds that sent may scores soaring, Quackenbush had a two-stroke victory. The International CC member from Fairfax, Va., shot the back nine in 2-under-par 33 for a 71 and a 72-hole total of 284. Tallent, from Congressional CC and Vienna, Va., who started the day one stroke off the pace, shot the front nine in 35 - three strokes better than Quackenbush - then went on to finish 72-286.
