SYDNEY, Australia - It was after their medal dream died by the flick of a computer that Dominique Dawes told her tumbling teammates it didn't matter, that years from now they wouldn't need a hunk of bronze on a mantelpiece to relive the experience of competing at the Summer Olympics. "We don't need a medal to walk away feeling good about ourselves," Dawes said. Last night, in the meet of their lives, the American women acted like a real gymnastics team. They cheered for one another and tried as hard as they could, combining grit and grace to finish fourth in the team competition.

There was lots of drama Sunday at the LPGA's Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif. Not only did Sweden's Anna Nordqvist rally for a one-shot victory, but Lexi Thompson gave the U.S. team a huge boost for this summer's inaugural International Crown at Caves Valley Golf Club. Thompson's strong finish of four birdies on the last six holes - including one on the final hole - lifted the 19-year-old Floridian to ninth in the Rolex World Rankings. It also helped give the four-player U.S. team the No. 1 seed among the eight countries that will be represented in Owings Mills in late July.

SYDNEY, Australia - Disappointed that the U.S. women's gymnasts failed to win a medal in the team competition last night? You should have seen what happened after they were finished tumbling and vaulting at the Olympic Park Superdome. The world got a glimpse of the ego problems, turf wars and turmoil that have troubled the team for several years, leaving the unmistakable impression that, if anything, a fourth-place finish in the team event was a major accomplishment. Yes, it was a far cry from the gold medal won in Atlanta four years ago in a moment that turned a nation of television viewers into gymnastics fans.

Tough enough a competition that combines such wildly divergent disciplines as canoeing and rock climbing, ocean kayaking and horseback riding, whitewater rafting and rappeling. The real killer in the world's premier adventure race is all the little things."There's so many unforeseen things happening, all you can do is adjust and learn from your mistakes," said Todd O'Toole, a participant in the Eco-Challenge staged in the North Queensland sector of Australia.For example, one of the highly-touted teams in the 10-day, 300-mile trek over the rugged outback, dense rain forest, raging rivers, mountains, gorges and rough ocean waters was Team Odyssey -- three Navy SEALS and a female corporate development consultant.

He wasn't set when the starter's pistol sounded and he ran into a tree, but that didn't deter David Chalmers from winning the boys varsity race at yesterday's 49th annual Spiked Shoe Invitational at Johns Hopkins University.The Gilman senior shrugged off his misfortunes and ran the hilly 3.1-mile course through Wyman Park in 16 minutes, 50 seconds."I tried to cut the course a little close and I grazed my shoulder on a tree," said Chalmers, his shoulder still bleeding. "The start was a little screwy, but I managed to get out OK. Our team was huddled up, and all of a sudden, we hear, 'Runners take your mark.

The Harford Tech cross country team began celebrating on the bus ride back from the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference division meet a few weeks ago. The Cobras sang, danced and hugged throughout their 45-minute ride from Fair Hill State Park in Elkton. A pizza party followed a few days later, and co-coaches Carol Brown and Henry Schwartzman bought the boys and girls congratulatory T-shirts. "We had something that needed to be celebrated," Schwartzman said. Despite having the bare minimum of five girls on the team, Harford Tech won the UCBAC Susquehanna Division team title Oct. 19. The boys completed the sweep that day despite having only 10 runners, delighting everyone from the program.

IT'S THURSDAY NIGHT AT Putty Hill skateland, and a herd of roller-skaters wheel counter-clockwise around the rink. Amidst the mothers, fathers, lovers and teenagers is a troupe of women dressed mostly in black, weaving, bending and falling to their knees. They are the Charm City Roller Girls, and they are practicing. Their leader, Caroline Donaghy, stands at a ringside cluster of lockers, gearing up with some of the crew and watching others circle the rink. Earlier this year, Donaghy put her life on hold and crossed the country hoping to start an all-girl roller derby league in Baltimore.

WADDINGTON, N.Y. - In a sport where the luck of the draw is key, two of the planet's most accomplished carp anglers drew the best fishing hole to dominate the World Carp Championship. Tim Paisley and Steve Briggs of the United Kingdom, the 2000 champions, caught 1,591 pounds, 5 ounces of carp over five days, nearly double the second-place finishers. The largest of their 80 fish weighed 34 pounds, 8 ounces. "We've got a lot of experience, and we know what it takes to catch carp," said Paisley, 67. "You have to put the jigsaw puzzle together and it all fell into place."

THE TENSION THAT frequently infects Maryland's system for electing state lawmakers was on display last week, as a current and a former legislator announced their interest in moving to the state Senate. Sen. John J. Hafer, a veteran Republican from Western Maryland, accused Del. George C. Edwards, the House minority leader, of effectively forcing him into retirement, saying that Edwards told him that the delegate would be running for the seat regardless of whether Hafer willingly vacated it. Former Montgomery County Del. Cheryl C. Kagan, a Democrat, formed an exploratory committee to prepare for a run against longtime Sen. Jennie M. Forehand, also a Democrat.

The Orioles weren't the only team at Camden Yards yesterday facing a slew of offseason questions. The Minnesota Twins have issues, too, even as they coast toward their third consecutive American League Central title. Five of the core players who made this run possible may not return. Starting pitcher Brad Radke and third baseman Corey Koskie are approaching free agency. Outfielder Jacque Jones could make upward of $6 million through arbitration, so the team will likely look to trade him or non-tender his contract.

It might not be as well known as the National Merit Scholarship or the All-State athletic awards. But for Eastern Technical High School, the recent American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers competition was just as important. The Essex magnet school can boast of a formidable track record in the annual contest, which pits teams of students against each other in a race to design a particular heating or cooling system. Coming into this year's competition, it had won the contest for the society's Baltimore chapter three years in a row. This year, Eastern Tech extended that streak.
