For the first time since Hobart defeated SUNY-Cortland in Division III's first NCAA tournament in 1980, two first-time title-game participants will compete in the championship final when No. 4 Stevenson and No. 3 Rochester Institute of Technology clash Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Mustangs (21-2) and the Tigers (19-2) have played in their fair share of immensely important, pressure-packed games, and their appearance in Sunday's title game is a testament to their perseverance and character.

The biggest thing the Sparrows Point girls soccer team stressed at halftime of Friday's game against No. 9 Catonsville was being sure to respond favorably if the Comets scored. So when the visitors did score a tying goal midway through the second half, the Pointers had a chance to apply what they discussed. They did so impressively. Sparrows Point came right back, getting a goal from Jamie Shiflett three minutes later and went on to claim a well-deserved, 3-1 upset win over Catonsville.

Commissioner Jim Delany expects the Big Ten to hold a championship game next season, when Nebraska joins and brings the league to 12 teams. He also says teams likely will play nine conference games instead of eight in the future to help preserve rivalries. Ohio State is the media's pick to win the Big Ten and Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor is the offensive player of the year for the second straight season. Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones was tabbed the top defensive player again, making it the first time in 12 years that both preseason player of the year picks were repeat selections.

COLLEGE PARK - There are no commemorative T-shirts worn at practice to remind Sasho Cirovski and his Maryland men's soccer team of their controversial loss to Notre Dame in the final of last year's College Cup. There is no new slogan etched onto the walls or scrawled across a whiteboard in the The memory of what happened last December - and the seemingly obvious Fighting Irish hand ball that was missed early in what turned out to be a gut-wrenching, 2-1...

FRISCO, Texas - Towson will play in its first Football Championship Subdivision title game without a pair of starters. The team announced Saturday morning that senior cornerback Jordan Love and senior tight end James Oboh were suspended for violation of unspecified NCAA rules.

CATONSVILLE - The Century girls' basketball team frustrated opponents with pressure defense all season long. But the Knights met their match on Saturday afternoon, when a talented and athletic Calvert High squad utilized a full-court defense and impressive teamwork at the offensive end to post a 57-22 victory over Century in the Class 2A state championship game at UMBC's Retriever Athletic Center. Century, the first Carroll County girls' basketball team to reach a state championship game in 15 years, finished the best season in school history with a 24-3 record.

Connor Frazier and Joe Brennan are roommates, which might make their quest to become Towson's starting quarterback a little uncomfortable. But Frazier said both players understand that the competition is limited to the football field. “I think when you're coming into a camp situation like this, you always have to compete as if you are winning the starting job,” Frazier said. “Joe and I are doing a great job of competing against one another. So I think camp's going pretty well so far.” The battle to open the season opener against Central Connecticut on Aug. 30 under center has essentially boiled down to a two-man race between Frazier, a junior, and Brennan, a redshirt senior.

Loyola Maryland announced Thursday that it will play at Maryland next season in a rematch of the 2012 national title game, giving the Greyhounds' schedule a needed boost in the absence of perennial rival Johns Hopkins. The Greyhounds and Terps will meet on Wednesday, April 8 at Byrd Stadium in College Park, with the game time to be announced later. "In a year that we are scrimmaging Johns Hopkins and not playing them during the regular season, it was important to us to add a strong RPI and strength-of-schedule nonconference game," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said via email.

With the United States' 10-7 win over Canada on Thursday night, the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships are underway in the Denver suburbs. Team USA, which defeated its neighbor to the north for the gold medal at the 2010 world championships, is looking for its second straight crown and 10th overall in the event, held every four years. While it's likely that the title game July 19 will be another U.S.-Canada matchup -- the teams have played in every gold-medal contest since 1998 -- a couple of squads could challenge them.  First and foremost are the Iroquois, who are led by five members of the Thompson family.

Salisbury's bid to capture its 11th national championship did not unfold as planned as the team dropped a 12-9 decision to Tufts in the Division III tournament final on May 25 at M&T Bank Stadium. It was only the fifth time in 15 title-game appearances that the Sea Gulls failed to bring home the crown, but the result did not diminish coach Jim Berkman's positive assessment of this year's squad, which went 21-2 overall and 6-1 in the Capital Athletic Conference. “I really enjoyed this team this year,” he said.

Known for some of the most prolific offenses in NCAA history, Duke is no slouch on defense either. For the seventh time in the past eight years, the defense ended a season by giving up an average of less than 10 goals. Some of the credit goes to volunteer assistant coach Ben DeLuca. The former Cornell head coach, who was dismissed from the Big Red in November, replaced former Maryland defenseman Joe Cinosky, who became the defensive coordinator at Mount St. Mary's, and joined the program in February to help defensive coordinator Ron Caputo.

A span of 30 seconds early in the first quarter of Friday's Class 1A state semifinal between defending state champion Dunbar and pesky Owings Mills provided more than a hint of things to come. Dunbar's 6-foot-4 junior forward Aaron Parham followed a miss with a thunderous dunk. After the No. 4 Poets got another stop at the defensive end, junior guard Rodrick Harrison spotted up on the left baseline and found nothing but net for a 3-pointer. In a rematch of last year's state championship game, the Poets once again proved bigger and stronger, quicker and more skilled, and simply too much for No. 14 Owings Mills to handle.

CHESTER, Pa. -- After a physically and emotionally draining 13-12 victory over the Hamilton Nationals in Saturday's semifinal of the Major League Lacrosse playoffs at PPL Park, the Chesapeake Bayhawks probably won't have to do much studying on their last opponent of the 2013 season. That's because the No. 2 seed and reigning league champion tangled with the No. 4 seed Charlotte Hounds on Aug. 10, emerging with a 16-14 decision at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.

Henry Lobb stood up against the wall in the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium, fumbling through words while trying to catch his breath. For most of Monday afternoon, the Duke senior defenseman stood on the stadium field with his knees bent, long stick in hand while chasing around one player: Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh. Lobb zoned in on Kavanagh, who torched Maryland's top-ranked defense in the semifinals for seven points (five goals and two assists) to lead the No. 6 Notre Dame to Monday's national championship against No. 1 Duke.
