- With a load of talented seniors coming off two straight appearances in the state semifinals, the C. Milton Wright girls soccer team has made it known that anything short of a state title will be a disappointment this season. But the playoffs are a couple months away and, in the meantime, the No. 4 Mustangs (1-0) are equally aware that there's plenty of hard work that needs to come first. Their first official business of the season came Saturday afternoon against Reservoir and the Mustangs were ready, earning a 3-0 win over the Gators in the Tournament of Champions at Tuscarora.

FREDERICK - After watching one of her crosses go through the goal area harmlessly in the first half of Saturday's game against C. Milton Wright in the Tournament of Champions at Tuscarora High, River Hill freshman forward Alexandria Hamer made a point to talk with fellow forward Sheridan Street at halftime. It was an example of what the early season is all about. When Hamer sent another ball across in the opening minutes of the second half, Street, a sophomore, made no mistake, burying the chance in front.

There's a phrase, Dan Katz feels, that aptly sums up his life right now."The expression 'Never in my wildest dreams' is applicable here," says the 34-year-old Baltimore attorney who describes himself as "boring" and readily admits that one of the thrills of his youth was appearing three times on "It's Academic."If "It's Academic" was a thrill, winning five straight games -- and $48,803 -- on "Jeopardy!" earlier this year was a thrill and a half. As a five-game winner, Mr. Katz is eligible to compete in Jeopardy's Tournament of Champions, where he could win $100,000.

Results from the recent poker Tournament of Champions had a familiar ring - local whiz Steve Dannenmann finished right behind Australian pro Joseph Hachem - but the payoff wasn't nearly as lucrative as it was a year ago. When those two finished one-two at the World Series of Poker main event last summer, Hachem pocketed $7.5 million and Dannenmann won $4.25 million. But when both were bounced Sunday in the early stages of the 27-person field of the Tournament of Champions at the Rio casino in Las Vegas, neither got a penny of the $2 million pot. The final table, with Ireland's Andrew Black as the chip leader, began play late yesterday.

To James F. H. Scott, sometimes what's important is not what you know, but what the other guy doesn't know.Mr. Scott, 22, of Columbia, won the $100,000 "Jeopardy!" Tournament of Champions, televised last night, when none of the three contestants could correctly respond to final round answers on the popular game show."It just seems very odd that I won," he said. "It always seems that the veterinarian from Fort Worth or the podiatrist from Seattle wins, almost never someone you know and never yourself."
