This is one of those rare stories about a young man from small-town USA who goes to West Point and makes it big in the classroom and on the lacrosse field.His name is Ross Yastrzemsky and his game is overcoming long odds by working hard, believing in himself -- and being lucky."There is always a lot of luck involved in anything," he said. "I got lucky because Army took a chance on me. Usually top Division I schools go to private schools like Boys' Latin for lacrosse players."Yastrzemsky said he never sold himself short, believing all along he had as good a chance as any of the highly regarded freshmen to play lacrosse at Army.

D.J. Sargenti had seen other Navy football players climb similar depth chart hurdles during his first three years in Annapolis. Sargenti had watched how they often changed positions in order to get on the field for the Midshipmen. The first time the Navy coaches came to Sargenti about switching positions was after his sophomore year, when they wanted to move the former high school quarterback to outside linebacker. Sargenti, who had run the spread offense at Ridgefield Memorial High in New Jersey, wasn't surprised.

Theories abound as to why Rogers Barnes is a late bloomer - not making a name for himself in either football or basketball until this, his senior year. But there is no doubt that Barnes is one of the most dynamic basketball players in the county this season and a key reason the Hawks (11-2 overall and in the Howard County league) are one of the county's top teams. He leads River Hill in scoring with a 14.8 average, and his defensive skills are equally impressive. Barnes normally guards the opposing team's top scoring threat and averages a team-high six steals.

NEUBRANDENBURG, Germany -- If the old East German government ran a giant sports industry, Sportclub Neubrandenburg was one of its most productive factories.One of 25 "elite" sports training clubs in the former German Democratic Republic, Sportclub Neubrandenburg turned out more world-class gold-medal winners than most nations. SCN athletes have won seven Olympic gold medals and 48 in world and European master-class contests.And somewhat incongruously at a club renowned for runners and jumpers, most of the gold was won by canoe and kayak racers.

OK, how nutty is this season going? Consider outfielder-infielder Steve Pearce, whom the Orioles bought for minimal cash from the New York Yankees on June 2. He exercised an opt-out clause in his contract. Had he stayed withTriple-AScranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pearce would be in the middle of a 13-game road trip. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team has been playing basically on the road all year, using the Rochester park as a home field at times because their park is under construction.

When 104 Arundel High students began to congregate on the school's tennis courts shortly before 9 a.m. last Wednesday, it looked like the start of a day of summer camp. Most of the students wore shorts and tank tops, appearing a bit sluggish at what many teenagers consider an early hour for the summer. But it became clear they weren't about to play kickball when three Arundel coaches broke them into 20 lines stretching across the court. In the next 65 minutes, the student-athletes - most of whom play football, but including girls from the field hockey, track and basketball teams - went through a series of jogging warm-up exercises, nine 100-yard sprints and stops at five stations in a steamy weight room.
