When Thelma Greathouse rubbed off an ace and two jokers on her "Joker's Wilder" scratch-off lottery ticket, she thought she'd hit it big for $600."I had to look at it three, four times. I thought, 'I can't win that much money,' " said Greathouse.The Middle River lottery player was right -- she didn't."Joker's Wilder," introduced this month as a successor to the Maryland Lottery's popular Joker's Wild game that ended more than a year ago, has a ironic twist: The jokers aren't wild -- at least not in the traditional card-playing way.Unlike the previous version of the game, which let players use jokers to round out threes-of-a-kind, Joker's Wilder requires players to match all three cards to win.The news was a rude awakening for Greathouse and her friend Ginger Rudasill, who thought they had not only a $600 winner but an additional $67 coming from other game tickets.

AUGUSTA, Ga.-- --The murmurs erupted into a chorus of cheers when each man took his place at the first tee box. What year was this? 1968? 2008? If it weren't for the digital cameras held high along the short fairway, like flickering torches lighting the path to the green, you'd never know. And you wouldn't care. The first round of golf I'd ever witness at Augusta National wasn't a threesome as much as a Mount Rushmore ripoff: Jack Nicklaus, 68, who first played here in 1959 and has won six green jackets in 45 Masters appearances; Arnold Palmer, 78, who first played here in 1955 and has four wins in 50 tries, and Gary Player, 72, who has won three times and tees off for the 51st time today.

In what was more than likely the first of three meetings this season, No. 7 Severna Park pretty much had its way at home yesterday in sweeping sixth-ranked and previously undefeated Broadneck, 15-10, 15-13 and 15-11. Junior hitter Lauren Klau dominated at the net, and the Falcons (10-3) played tough defense in taking over sole possession of first place in Anne Arundel County play with a 9-0 record. Severna Park's strong junior nucleus of Klau, Marti Hause, Megan Boyd, Kim Pytel, and Christina Grempler assured a memorable "Seniors night" for its upperclass teammates as Broadneck (10-1)

No. 2 Severna Park turned yesterday's battle of unbeatens into an awesome display of power volleyball, hammering its way to a 15-3, 15-2, 15-6 victory over co-No. 9 Glen Burnie.The Falcons collected 33 kills, led by senior outside hitter Julie Kasprzak with 13. They never trailed, and the best Glen Burnie (6-1) could do were two ties in the first game and one in the third."We were just never in the match," said Glen Burnie coach Juanita Milani. "They hit well, they served well, they did everything well, and we missed out on the basic fundamentals of passing.

Centennial volleyball coach Bill Shook had seen enough of his Eagles last weekend to sense what was coming last night against visiting Glenelg.Shook said before the match that the Eagles' pre-game warm-up might take more time than Centennial would require to defeat the Gladiators. He didn't miss by much, as the Eagles needed barely an hour to whip Glenelg, 15-2, 15-2, 15-12.While winning their 34th straight match, the defending state-champion Eagles (15-0) looked as sharp as they did on Saturday, when they won the 6th Annual Bulldog volleyball tournament at North Caroline High School.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- The names always come at Orioles pitching coach Leo Mazzone in rapid succession, and they don't have to be recited in full. Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz is enough. He practically hears them in his sleep. Since Mazzone reported to camp last month, those names usually have been followed by three others that one day could leave his ears ringing: Bedard, Cabrera and Loewen. The comparison would be deemed too absurd except that it's spring training, when unbridled optimism and heightened expectations rule the day. All reason is shown the door.

North County's volleyball team is making history in the school's 17th year of the girls sport. When this season began, the Knights had had only four winning seasons, the last in 2005 at 9-8, the first in 1999 when they had their best year at 11-5. And since the school opened in 1990 with the merger of Andover and Brooklyn Park, they had never beaten perennial power Severna Park. Last week, the Knights broke the 16-year drought against the then-No. 10 Falcons with a 3-2 win by scores of 21-25, 25-17, 27-25, 19-25, 15-13.

Senior outside hitters Connie Pikounis and Maggie Serkes had 15 kills each to lift No. 10 Mount Hebron to a 24-26, 25-22, 25-16, 16-25, 15-7 victory over No. 15 Atholton in Columbia last night. Serkes also earned four aces, Pikounis recorded three aces, and sophomore setter Anna Wiggs contributed 31 assists as the visiting Vikings improved to 3-2 overall and 2-2 in Howard County. "After we lost [a five-game match] to Reservoir [on Sept. 20], everyone was upset," Pikounis said. "I think that taught us the lesson to push harder for what you want and to come out strong in the fifth game."

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The ball carried hope in flight, and heartbreak upon arrival. Gerald Fitch got the perfect look, the perfect elevation and the perfect release. But with time running out and Kentucky's season running down, he just didn't get the perfect trajectory. So when the backboard tips and taps were finally done, the Wildcats, the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, exited the stage, having fallen victim to No. 9 seed Alabama-Birmingham, 76-75, yesterday at Nationwide Arena.

Veteran Severna Park volleyball coach Tim Dunbar hopes yesterday's effort by his Falcons was simply a "passing thing."Uncharacteristic poor passing by the No. 2-ranked Falcons (1-1), compounded by the power of two girls named Erin, resulted in a 3-0 sweep by visiting Calvert High. Calvert (1-0) rolled to victory by scores of 15-1, 15-6 and 15-11.Seniors Erin Fowler and Erin McMahon combined for 25 kills to pace the Lions, who moved down from 4A to 3A this season.Sarah Grimm led the Falcons with five kills, and returning All-County outside hitter Julie Gosewisch and middle hitter Carolyn Page had three kills each.

Centennial volleyball coach Michael Bossom put his team through a drill Tuesday designed to get the Eagles to serve more aggressively. By tying a piece of elastic string to the antennas that stand above the net posts and stretching it parallel over the length of the net, he created a 3-foot window for serves to travel through. The point of the exercise was not lost among the fourth-ranked Eagles yesterday in a 25-18, 25-19, 25-22 home victory over No. 9 Mount Hebron. Centennial (8-1)
