The game was a rematch of last year's season opener when the Eagles had to come from behind to win, 12-6.

As McDonogh's girls lacrosse winning streak ballooned toward a record-tying 103 games, the top programs along the East Coast wanted a crack at ending the Eagles' run. Coach Chris Robinson gave as many of them a shot as possible. For the third straight year, the Eagles opened their season at Vero Beach, Fla., beating three nationally-ranked teams - including Vero Beach, which was ranked second behind the Eagles in one national preseason poll. Then, the Eagles came home to go after their sixth straight title in what is widely considered the toughest conference in the country, the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

Vero Beach, Fla.-- --It was St. Patrick's Day, so "Dodger Bob" Scholl and his wife, Patty, wore some green to mark the occasion and added black armbands to mark the passing of an era. "I've been coming here since 1964, and I've been a Dodgers fan since 1948," said a clearly disconsolate Dodger Bob, "and this is it. I don't want to see the Orioles." The Dodgers played what is expected to be their final exhibition game at Dodgertown yesterday, losing to the Houston Astros with Tommy Lasorda filling in as manager and 60 years of memories swirling around windy Holman Stadium.

McDonogh's girls lacrosse team extended its winning streak to 96 games Friday afternoon, but Severn and goalie Meredith Brown didn't make it easy. Brown made 17 saves against an impatient Eagles attack that relied on a five-goal, mid-game run to propel them to a 9-6 victory over the No. 6 Admirals in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game. No. 1 McDonogh (5-0, 2-0 conference) broke a 4-4 tie with goals from Megan Whittle and Miranda McCoy in the final minute of the second half.

Vero Beach, Fla., and Indian River County officials are hopeful that Orioles owner Peter Angelos and the team's upper management will meet as early as next week and approve an agreement that would make Dodgertown the team's long-term spring training home starting in 2010. Representatives from the Orioles and Indian River County and Vero Beach spent Wednesday and Thursday meeting in Orlando, Fla., trying to complete a deal that has been discussed for more than a year. A negotiation agreement between the Orioles and the county expired yesterday, but government officials are prepared to give the team time to review the offer.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles no longer can tolerate having their minor league camp 200 miles away. They need more space at their spring training home, on the field and in the offices. They crave the comforts that are afforded other teams. And if it means going someplace else, they might not have a choice. Even if the new location is steeped in the tradition of another franchise, its name splattered on doors and etched in concrete, its heroes commemorated on street signs. Though no one will confirm it publicly, the Orioles are believed to have signed an option agreement with Indian River County that would allow them to hold spring training in Vero Beach, home of the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers since 1948, as early as next year.

Indian River County, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers' longtime spring training site in Vero Beach, Fla., has reportedly reached an option agreement with another major league team to take over the facility as early as 2009. However despite mounting speculation, Orioles officials, who have long sought to upgrade their current facility in Fort Lauderdale, aren't saying whether they are that team. A team source confirmed yesterday that the Orioles have been in serious negotiations with Indian River County about the Dodgertown facility, though a binding agreement hasn't been reached.

Vero Beach, Fla. -- The sign at the entrance still welcomes you to "Dodgertown," but it's fair to wonder what it will say next year. The Dodgers might still be here, if the fancy new spring training facility being built for them in Arizona is not yet complete. Or the place could be empty. Or the color scheme might be orange and black and the name could have more of an avian theme. No one really knows and no one really wants to say, because there are so many contingencies and so many sensitive issues and the potential for a few hurt feelings.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- It has been a solid ride, the past 13 seasons here, even in an obsolete ballpark. Great restaurants, beautiful beaches and a conscientious stadium staff. Orioles first baseman Kevin Millar called Fort Lauderdale "the best city in Florida." The people and places here will be missed, but it's time to wave goodbye and head two hours north to Vero Beach. Because the positives that come with spending spring in an eclectic, bustling city do nothing for what should be the Orioles' end goal: to be a better baseball organization.
