The girls lacrosse game between No. 1 Mount Hebron and No. 4 Roland Park, which was postponed last Friday when only one official showed up at Mount Hebron, will not be rescheduled. Both coaches said they wish the game could have been made up, but Mount Hebron's Chris Robinson took it a step further. "We are disappointed that Roland Park does not want to play us," Robinson said. "I am surprised that a school with a such a good reputation would act in an unethical manner by backing out of a commitment.

For a decade in the NFL, fullback Vonta Leach built a reputation as of the most intimidating lead blockers in the game by delivering punishing hits that rattled linebackers' heads. Leach displayed uncommon pop as a blocker and was able to regularly jolt defenders out of the way with his superior strength and leverage. Now, the former Ravens and Houston Texans All-Pro fullback is a free agent hoping to play another year or two in the NFL after being cut by the Ravens in February.

HOLLYWOOD-- --Sometimes having a dirty mouth is all a lady needs. Jennifer Carpenter, the young actress who contorted herself acrobatically in The Exorcism of Emily Rose, had never worked in television, but she really wanted to play the gung-ho cop sister of a serial killer who kills serial killers on Showtime's most-watched series, Dexter. Dexter airs at 10 p.m. Sundays on Showtime.

Wood bats, regulation uniforms and a desire to compete against peers are just part of what drives Baltimore Senior Baseball Over 40 League players to lace up their spikes every Sunday morning from April to August for some old-fashioned hardball. The Towson Recreation Council-sponsored league is the nearest thing these aging boys of summer can find to the real thing, in that the rules - if not their reflexes - are pretty much the same as they have been since players first picked up a bat when they were kids.

The clock is ticking on Matt O'Donnell's football career, and he wants to savor the time he has remaining to play."I realize this is my last year, so what's the point of holding anything back?" said Navy's senior wide receiver, who paces the team with 15 receptions. "This is my last bullet; I might as well make it count. I just have to go out and seize the moment."O'Donnell, who attended high school at Mount St. Joseph in Baltimore, has become an integral part of the Midshipmen's passing game that has become more important in the overall offensive scheme as the season has progressed.

Last night's Catholic League matchup between No. 4-ranked St. Frances and No. 6 Archbishop Spalding was postponed after one half after Spalding officials discovered an oily substance on the floor.The game, which St. Frances was leading, 20-17, will resume at a later date -- most likely at the end of the regular season."I hate to do this, but the biggest concern is safety," said Spalding athletic director Lee Dove, who had no explanation for the oil. "These kids are fast and strong, and the last thing I want to do is have someone get hurt."

When she was 14 years old, Dana Dobbie read about the Maryland's women's lacrosse team in Sports Illustrated for Women. She decided right then that she wanted to play for the 10-time national-champion Terps. That may have seemed a stretch for a girl from Ontario who didn't even know the women's game existed until she was 13. Not to Dobbie. "Ever since then, I told my dad I wanted to play for the University of Maryland and he was just, `Yeah, Dana. Go do it. If that's what you want to do, then that's what's going to happen."

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A few minutes after 2 a.m. on Saturday morning, shortly after the Orioles lost the longest game, time-wise, in the franchise's history, manager Buck Showalter informally canvassed a few veterans to see whether they wanted to be in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup. No one blinked. "I talked to some of them last night, and I got a real common theme," Showalter said. "I know there is some emotion there so I wanted to wait again until this morning, because you also want to provide for that thought when they get up and say, 'What the (heck)

Paul Cantabene was not entirely sure how the Stevenson players would react after dropping a 14-13 overtime decision to Roanoke on Tuesday night. But as the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to dip back into Middle Atlantic Conference play with a visit from Albright this Saturday at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills, the head coach is hoping that the team practices and plays with an undercurrent of anger. “I think we need to start playing a little more angrily,” Cantabene said Wednesday. “In my time here, this is one of our nicer teams.

You can see it in his gingerly gate as he moves from his locker to the shower area, in the way he leans against a wall to take pressure off his right knee. Haloti Ngata's remarkable body hurts. This is easy enough to forget when you watch the Ravens on Sundays. The television announcers are more apt to talk about Terrell Suggs' Achilles or Ray Lewis' triceps. The camera, always following the ball, rarely settles on the trench warfare between Ngata and two or three offensive linemen nearly as big and powerful as he. His teammates know.

COLLEGE PARK - In March 2010, the boy's basketball coach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Prince George's County found himself suddenly shorthanded in double-overtime of a playoff game against Wise. His frontcourt thinned by injuries and foul trouble, coach Brendan O'Connell turned to a bulky sophomore backup - Shawn Petty - who had played little during the regular season. "I think most sophomores would have just panicked," O'Connell said. But what struck O'Connell is how unfazed Petty seemed.

The way Stephen Perkins describes it, Banyan sprang from a very simple concept. There were guys the former Jane's Addiction/Porno for Pyros drummer wanted to play with, so he invited them over to jam.It hardly mattered whether they were rockers, like Flea and John Frusciante from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, or jazzmen, like bassist Rob Wasserman. Perkins just wanted to play, so he invited people over, and eventually they cut an album."We did it in the backyard of my house," he says of "Anytime at All," Banyan's debut album.

When Betsy Given entered the game against Mount St. Mary's on Dec. 8 in the last two minutes, she made it official. When she scored Loyola's last two points of a 63-45 win with 18 seconds left, she added an exclamation point to the win and to her rare achievement.In an age of athletic specialization, Given had just become a three-sport, Division I varsity athlete. And she's not merely participating in the same sport year-round, like a runner in cross country and indoor and outdoor track. She's playing three different games -- soccer, lacrosse and basketball.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones has a short and a long-term goal when it comes to getting in the lineup: He expects to play in all 162 this year. And he wants to chase down Cal Ripken Jr.'s streak. OK, he's kidding about one of them. "I'm gonna play 162. I have no choice. That's what they signed me for," said Jones, who signed an $85.5 million, six-year contract extension in May and has played in all 138 games this season. Jones pointed out that fellow outfielder, Nick Markakis, missed just five games in the first three seasons of his contract extension (before being sidelined for nearly six weeks this year due to wrist surgery)

While not a member of the flock, I think some of the Catholic Church's recent actions in the political arena might hold good news for the rest of us. In Maryland, for example, the church has announced plans to help overturn the gay marriage law, as well as to ensure that Catholic organizations don't have to provide birth control. Having so obviously violated the separation of church and state, the church should also be forfeiting its tax-exempt status. As a Baltimore taxpayer, I pay the highest property taxes in the state.
