In its second year, the Arundel Invitational Tournament has become the place to go to claim area girls volleyball bragging rights. This year's field featured five ranked teams, including four of the top five, lending the title added significance. On Saturday, third-ranked Severna Park rallied impressively in the championship game to defeat No. 13 Arundel, the host and defending champion, 25-23, 25-20. The final's defining moment came at the end of the first set. The Falcons were trailing 23-16, having started the match seemingly flat, when coach Tim Dunbar called a timeout.

In the midst of the mass exodus that saw five players with remaining eligibility leave Maryland this past spring, Mark Turgeon took a high-profile matchup Dec. 8 against Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden off the 2014-15 schedule. At the time, Turgeon cited a “scheduling conflict” as the reason. It was more the uncertainty of what kind of team the Terps were going to put on the court after a 17-15 season, the most disappointing year in the short Turgeon Era and one of the most underachieving by Maryland in memory.

For the Maryland Terrapins, advancing in the NCAA tournament won't earn them any additional money, but will represent a payback of sorts.Under the terms of a financial reform that went into effect in 1991, the distribution of the millions of dollars generated by the tournament has less to do with the performance of any individual team. But conference success does play a role, meaning the winners share the proceeds with losers."For a period of time, Maryland has benefited from the success of others, and now we are contributing," said Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger.

DOMINIC Finelli's head was shaved last year. This year, his friends plan to paint it yellow. He and his wife, Caroline, are chairman and chairwoman of the sixth (and last) annual Sue Jaeger Memorial Golf Tournament, scheduled for Sept. 6 at Crofton Country Club. Sue, a warm, generous Crofton woman, fought a 15-year battle with lymphoma. One of her favorite activities was serving as a counselor at Camp Sunrise, a summer camp for children with cancer. After Sue's death, her friends were inspired to honor her memory by supporting Camp Sunrise.

The chairman of the NCAA tournament selection committee has a decidedly tough job, especially when he has to explain the choices his group of athletic directors and conference administrators makes in picking, seeding and placing the 65 teams that will get to participate. It was no different last night for North Carolina State athletic director Lee Fowler. Sounding like a beleaguered Enron executive appearing before a Senate subcommittee, Fowler seemed to recollect little of the particulars that resulted in some rather, uh, interesting decisions.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Walter Hurley has missed only five of 60 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association basketball tournaments, because his wife had cancer. His wish is to never miss another unless he's going to a better place. "When I do miss the next one, I hope it's because the big man has called me home to heaven," said Hurley, 83, a former CIAA player and Virginia high school basketball coach who gets around with the aid of a walker. "You don't want to miss this. There are too many customs.

One might not associate ocean fishing with 100-pound fish, sponsorships and millions in cash prizes. But for fishing boat captain Ted Deppe, that's what it is. The 52-year-old from Crownsville, along with two crewmates and five anglers, spend much of their free time competing in ocean fishing competitions, and have been very successful - so much so that Deppe's team was recently offered a sponsorship from Under Armour, which pays for its gear....

BETHESDA -  Before Tiger Woods committed last week to playing in the Quicken Loans National, many figured that Congressional Country Club would look and feel very much like it did last year, when the absence of the world's former No. 1 player offered plenty of elbow room. It could be that way again this weekend. The crowds and major-championship buzz that followed the game's biggest draw through the first two rounds likely will disappear now that Woods, looking older than 38 and trying to find his game after being sidelined more than three months after back surgery, has missed the cut. Coming into Friday's second round at 3-over-par, mostly the result of poor first-round putting, Woods struggled in all facets of his game, shooting a 4-over 75. His two-day total of 7-over-par 149 was 13 shots off the lead and four strokes off the cut line.

In the four years that Jeff Shirk has coached Washington College, the program has qualified for the NCAA tournament three times. This spring, the team reached the national semifinals for the first time since 2004. That may seem like a remarkable achievement, but Shirk downplayed that feat when compared to schools that have enjoyed a certain amount of longevity when it comes to the postseason. “We were talking about it as coaching staff that it's so impressive when you consider the teams that do this year in and year out,” he said.

Ever since the PGA Tour announced last week plans to move the Booz Allen Classic from its regular spot in June to October beginning in 2007, there has been speculation that the tournament could lose its title sponsorship when the current contract runs out after this year's event. Steve Lesnick, chairman and chief executive officer of Kemper Sports, which has run the tournament for more than 30 years, said in a telephone interview yesterday that he wasn't sure which direction the tournament would take if the Washington-area consulting firm pulled its financial commitment after only three years.
