After one year at the Virginia Military Institute, former Atholton guard Gavin Stephenson is transferring to South Carolina Aiken. As a freshman at VMI, Stephenson averaged 2.2 points and 1.3 rebounds in 22 games. Because he is transferring down a level to a Division II program, he will be able to play immediately as a sophomore. Stephenson averaged 23.1 points and 6.1 rebounds as a senior at Atholton, earning first-team All-Howard County honors.

WASHINGTON -- Nearly a century and a half after the women's rights movement began, and just over 75 years after women gained a place in the U.S. Constitution with the right to vote, the Supreme Court is about to take up a plea to start a new legal revolution among the sexes.In a case that began in 1989 when an anonymous young woman failed to get into the male-only cadet ranks at Virginia Military Institute, the justices confront this week the most energetic effort in years to gain full constitutional protection for women.

Not many college quarterbacks have faced the kind of immediate competition as Trey Miller has in his first three games as a starter at Navy. The first two were against Notre Dame, as a sophomore last season when Miller replaced an injured Kriss Proctor for a 56-14 road loss in South Bend, Ind., and again this year as the No. 1 quarterback for a 50-10 season-opening loss to the Fighting Irish on Sept. 1 in Dublin. Miller's third start came in last Saturday's 34-7 defeat at Penn State.

Navy coach Richie Meade was plenty pleased the No. 10 Midshipmen defeated Virginia Military Institute, 13-5, on Saturday. But he took umbrage with a line of thought that Navy should have won by a greater margin and the score should not have been tied 5-5 at halftime. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/lacrosseblog)

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has put in writing its request that the Naval Academy reconsider its ritual of leading students in lunchtime prayer. The group sent a letter Wednesday to the Annapolis superintendent, Vice Adm. Richard J. Naughton, saying that the practice was unlikely to pass "constitutional muster" in the wake of an appellate court ruling Monday striking down supper prayers at the state-run Virginia Military Institute. The Naval Academy declined to comment yesterday.

DiBartolo, a Bowie native and Archbishop Spalding graduate who ranks second in school history in career saves (629), third in goals-against average (9.71) and 10th in save percentage (.576).

No. 8 Maryland (4-1) Coming up: Vs. UMBC, tonight, 8 p.m., Byrd Stadium; Vs. St. Joseph's, Sunday, 1 p.m., Byrd Stadium. Comment: The Terps won't duplicate last year's 6-0 start, but five wins in the first six games is a nice consolation prize. If senior attackman Travis Reed can't play because of the shoulder injury he suffered last Saturday against Towson, could junior Joe Cummings or freshman Sean McGuire fill the void? No. 14 Johns Hopkins (5-1) Coming up: At Syracuse, Saturday, 6 p.m. Comment: The Blue Jays may lead the overall series, 26-21-1, but the Orange has won the past four meetings and five of the past six. Senior Matt Dolente is tied for third in Division I with a .704 faceoff percentage.

Navy's freshmen attackmen combined for eight goals and four assists in the team's 14-8 victory over the Virginia Military Institute last Saturday. Coach Richie Meade is emphatic in his belief that his group of first-year players can match that production for the remainder of the season. "The expectation here is what it is," Meade said. "Everybody has to stop saying they're freshmen. They're Navy lacrosse players, and we've got a team, and we expect to win. That's really the way it is. Those are the guys we're putting on the field, and our expectation is that they're going to keep getting better, they're going to keep working hard.

The Navy men's lacrosse team will be the first area program to begin the 2011 campaign when the Virginia Military Institute visits Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Saturday. As far as Andy Warner is concerned, the season opener couldn't come soon enough. "I'd prefer to start in the second week that we get here [after winter break]," the senior midfielder said. "We have a lot to get done and lot to learn in those three short weeks, but getting started early helps to get a little confidence going and get our first game under our belts, especially with this young team that we have.
