Welcome to Perry Hall, Krissy Jost.It's just like old times.Such were the thoughts of many in the crowd at yesterday's Spiked Shoe Invitational at rain-soaked Johns Hopkins, where Jost, a recently transplanted Eastern Shore resident, and native of Perry Hall, blew away the field by nearly a minute.Jost, a junior transfer from Queen Anne's High, won the race in 19 minutes, 41 seconds, beating second-place Jacquelin Hays of Linganore by 53 seconds and evoking comparisons to two-time Baltimore Sun Female Athlete of the Year Amanda White, who often compiled lopsided victories.

Senior Eric Tischer curled a left-footed corner kick into the upper far corner of the net, giving top-ranked Centennial a 2-1, come-from-behind overtime victory against Walt Whitman last night.Tischer's shot came in the fifth minute of the first sudden-death period at rain-drenched Whitman and touched off a jubilant but soggy victory celebration to the right of Whitman's net."It was the first time I've scored off a corner kick during a game," Tischer said. It was his second goal of the season.

Severn senior forward Leanne Hug, expected back early this week after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, will be a welcome sight as the Admirals prepare for the stretch run in defending their Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference crown. The Admirals (13-3, 6-2 in the league before Friday's game against Mount de Sales) have held their own in Hug's absence with different players taking turns stepping up. In Tuesday's 54-38 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti, the team got 14 points from junior guard Leah Cranmer and 10 rebounds and three blocks from senior center Caitlin Sheehan.

These are boom times for Walt Whitman, America's most famous poet.A century after his death, Whitman, the poet of democracy, the poet of the body and soul, commands a loyal and expansive following from his birthplace on New York's Long Island to the literary circles of China.His rough, rigorous, unrhymed verse, informal and impassioned, appeals to both genders, all ages and numerous nationalities."Whitman is the poet of liberty, of individual freedom," said Carol Muske-Dukes, a poet and creative writing professor at the University of Southern California.

The audience for "Road Scholar," which opens today at th Rotunda, certainly should include readers of The Sun. That's because this is the first movie ever about a Sun writer, if you discount Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle," and Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins in "HeSaid, She Said."Not only that: Our boy actually appears on camera most of the time. He gets to ride a big red convertible and shoot machine guns! Yes: it's "Lethal Weapon IV" with Dan Rodricks in the Mel Gibson role!Oh, forgive my little joke there, folks.

Rain, thunder and lightning delayed the Maryland state track and field championships at Western Maryland College yesterday, costing Howard High critical points in several Class 3A field events.During a 90-minute delay, coming after an hour of Class 3A and 4A competition at Scott S. Blair Stadium, Howard lost strong chances to capture points in boys 3A competition as four seniors elected to head back to school with boys coach Dave Glenn to attend the school's senior awards banquet."The rain helped make up their minds real quick," said Howard assistant boys coach Tony Holland, who added the stay-or-go decision was left up to each athlete.

Top-ranked Severna Park kicked an old habit last night in sweeping Bowie of Prince Georges County, 15-3, 15-9, 16-14, in the Class 4A state semifinals last night at Essex Community College.Severna Park (17-1) broke their recent trend of losing the first game in crucial matches before rallying for victory, this time being ready from the start to advance to its first state final since 1993 when it went 22-0 in winning a third consecutive state championship."I think they were a lot more nervous than they we were, and we came out a whole lot more ready than we have in the state playoffs," said coach Tim Dunbar.

Somebody here can play this game.The Westminster and South Carroll girls basketball teams gained some much-needed respect for Carroll County Monday when they beat two high-profile Montgomery County teams on their home courts.Those two regional tournament victories at the two top levels (4A and 3A) in the state ease a little of the pain from a lackluster regular season for Carroll's five boys and five girls teams.Only one boys team managed to play .500 basketball (South Carroll at 11-11) and two girls teams (Westminster at 14-6 and South Carroll at 13-6)
