Atholton did its part when it beat Mount Hebron last week to finish the regular season with a 17-2 mark in Howard County. All the No. 10 Raiders (18-3) needed was for Centennial to upset frontrunner Oakland Mills to be declared county champions. "I remember walking to the locker room after we won and asking coach [Jared Albert] what happened in that game," senior forward and captain Michael Bernetti said. At the time, that game was only in the third quarter, so the waiting game was on. Text messages provided updates and teammates were sharing what they could find out. Finally, the news arrived: Centennial upset Oakland Mills in overtime.

Final exams begin Monday for students at Washington College and the upcoming weekend is a prime opportunity for them to review and study for the tests. But the members of the men's lacrosse team may find it difficult to look at a book as they await word from the NCAA selection committee about their postseason fate. The No. 10 Shoremen own a 12-4 record and are sixth in the South region rankings. But they got bounced by No. 2 Dickinson from the Centennial Conference tournament semifinals on Wednesday and will learn whether they have earned an at-large spot from the Pool C candidates when the 26-team field is unveiled late Sunday night.

COLLEGE PARK - For years, Ernest Graham had a wish. The former Maryland basketball star hoped to live long enough to see his number retired by the school. The bad news for Graham - whose single-game mark of 44 points remains a team record - is that Maryland has a policy of not retiring basketball numbers. It chose to give his former No. 25 to another incoming player this season. The good news is that the incoming player is Graham's son, Jonathan. "I'm more than pleased," said the elder Graham, 54. "As a child, he wore that number.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Think of what Jason Campbell has gone through for the past 18 months this way: What if you were an accountant, and you were only allowed to practice doing tax returns? Or a stage actor who could only rehearse his lines before an empty theater with the lights dimmed? Ever since the Washington Redskins traded three draft picks to get in position to select the former Auburn quarterback No. 25 overall in the 2005 draft, Campbell has been waiting to get on the field for a regular-season game.

Lonnie Smith doesn't mind the waiting game because he is simply happy still to be in the game.So the fact that he was the last Oriole to appear in a game this season -- and didn't make his first start until last night -- was hardly upsetting to the Orioles' backup designated hitter."

Marah Strickland could have settled for an easier route. Instead of signing with Maryland's defending national champion women's basketball team, the Towson Catholic senior could have chosen to play somewhere else. Plenty of other top-notch programs recruited the smooth 6-foot guard, last season's All-Metro Player of the Year and a Street & Smith's preseason second-team All-American. On some of those teams, she could have stepped right into the starting lineup, their superstar apparent.

Scott Feldman pitched his last game of the season Friday. It was both his shortest and worst as an Oriole: He allowed eight earned runs in 2 1/3 innings in the Orioles' 12-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Now the question becomes whether this was Feldman's last start as an Oriole. He was acquired in July from the Chicago Cubs along with Steve Clevenger for pitchers Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop and international signing bonus slots. At the time, the Orioles knew he could become a free agent at season's end. They also knew what they were getting: a strong competitor and easygoing personality who didn't do anything flashy but normally kept his club in games.

The Orioles and right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens still have not finalized a one-year deal, nearly a week after the 27-year-old began his team physical. But Jurrjens remains hopeful that he'll soon be a member of the team and will join the Orioles' pitchers and catchers for their Feb. 12 reporting date in Sarasota, Fla. “I hope so, the only thing I can do is keep working and getting ready,” Jurrjens said by phone Wednesday. “We're still trying to discuss some small stuff on the contract.

With fewer than four weeks remaining to sign his 2011 draft picks, Orioles director of amateur scouting Joe Jordan finds himself in a familiar position in late July. "We're just kind of in a waiting mode on some stuff," Jordan said. "We have offers out there to pretty much all of them. We're going to sign some guys here soon or we're going to move on to other things. Obviously, I'm talking about guys down in the draft. We have priorities. We have a first- and second-rounder that are not signed, and they are our top priorities.

The last time Mount St. Joseph boys basketball coach Pat Clatchey had his whole team assembled, during practice Feb. 4, he made sure to set down some common-sense rules in anticipation of missing time because of the snow. He told his players to avoid pickup games, don't do anything crazy in the snow and stay away from Snickers bars. Snickers bars? "Yeah. I told them not to eat any Snickers - don't be satisfied because we still have unfinished business and they have to stay focused and they have to stay hungry," he said.

With three of their biggest offseason needs seemingly filled a week before Christmas, the suddenly aggressive Orioles are now expected to adopt a wait-and-see approach before putting the final touches on their 2010 roster. After adding veteran starter Kevin Millwood in a trade with the Texas Rangers last week and agreeing to terms with left-hand- ed closer Mike Gonzalez and former Colorado Rockies third baseman Garrett Atkins on Wednesday, team officials acknowledged that their next move probably won't come until 2010.

Baltimore's liquor board revoked the liquor license for the Suite Ultralounge nightclub in the basement of the Belvedere Hotel, and the people of Mount Vernon and Mid-Town rejoiced. That was Nov. 13. This past Saturday, the club held a "Slumber Express" teen pajama party. This coming Friday, the self-acclaimed "Belvedere's Hottest Dance Club" is advertising an appearance by the group Definition for those 18 and older, with the bonus "ladies free all nite," and of course, it's bring-your-own-booze for those 21 and older.
