Marilyn Little grew up with horses. "Horses were my playmates in the afternoon," said the Frederick native. "I was really lucky to have that. … It's served me well. " As a competitor on the international equestrian scene, Little is making the most of her experience. She's compiled a formidable resume: first-place Grand Prix finishes, a European tour as the youngest rider to represent the U.S. Equestrian Team and appearances at competitions around the world. The latest addition is a second-place finish for Little, 32, and RF Demeter, a 12-year-old Oldenburg mare owned by Raylyn Farms and Team Demeter, at The Fork International Horse Trials CIC3*, a three-day event in Norwood, N.C., last weekend.

The English weren't just fighting to remain in contention for a medal yesterday, they were battling for their lacrosse lives.England, which has participated in every World Games along with the United States, Canada and Australia, lost its final chance to advance to the medal round, bowing to the Australians, 11-6. That means England (0-4) will finish below fourth place for the first time in the 31 years of the World Games and, as a result, could lose funding in excess of $200,000, putting further international participation at risk.

A players-only meeting, some serious offensive tinkering and the emergence of midfielders Brian Hess (McDonogh), Pat Corbett and Alex Drake has led Lehigh to a 12-4 finish. It's placed them in a position to do what they failed to do last year — win the first NCAA tournament game in program history. "The seniors met; then we had a team meeting. I always knew we had the talent and the guys on the field capable of getting the job done. Guys had to believe in themselves. We needed to call guys out and we needed more out of guys; we've done that," attackman David DiMaria said of the team meeting after Lehigh's 6-4 loss to Massachusetts on March 20. "We thought we arrived last year, and the plan was to remain," coach Kevin Cassese said.

Alpine skiing coach Diane Mikulis watched as the body language of her Special Olympic athletes - including Marylander Jake Reynolds - transformed one day last month from mildly interested to awe-struck. They had just entered Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid, N.Y., where international flags hung majestically from the rafters and where banners and murals honored historic athletic events. The skiers listened to a brief history of the venue and now were being told they were going to be allowed on the ice. They grinned widely, and a smile slowly crept onto Mikulis' face, too, as her skiers restlessly and excitedly waited to descend the stairs.

How cold will it be Saturday night, when the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants meet in the Motor City for Game 3 of the World Series? Forty-three degrees, with temperatures dipping into the upper 30s by game's end, predicts meteorologist Jim Madaus, of CBS 62 in Detroit. "The [football] Lions have it better," Madaus said. "They play indoors. " The 1979 Orioles had it worse. It was a wintry 41 degrees at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 10 as they played host to the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 1 of the World Series - and downright frosty some 3 hours and 18 minutes later, after what was then the longest night game in the history of the Fall Classic.

In a year that some are calling a "meh" version of the E3 expo, one new title has emerged as the clear buzz game that nobody knew about a week ago. "Watch Dogs" was demoed by Ubisoft this week, and so far the scant 10 minutes unveiled look every bit worth the hype. A spiritual successor to Ubisoft's big third-person action properties "Assassin's Creed" and "Splinter Cell," this new property appears to have reached a place in gamers that will make it one of the most-followed games in development over the coming months.
