In a battle of unbeaten 3A city league baseball teams, Carver (4-0) visits City (3-0) today at 3:45 p.m.
Sophomore Mike Scarcella (1-0) pitched an 18-0 perfect game last weekend against Forest Park -- a team Carver trounced, 30-4, Tuesday.
The Knights also have been a consistently high-scoring team, hammering Douglass, 18-0, Tuesday.
Just when it looked as if Lake Clifton's boys lacrosse team was the city league's new power, an old warrior, Forest Park, upended the Lakers, 8-6.
Lake Clifton (4-1 league) entered unbeaten and with nine starters from last year's 10-3 squad; the Foresters (3-2), coached by Obie Barnes, had graduated most players from a 13-1 city championship squad that Barnes considered his best team.
All-City attackman Sean Markley scored three goals for the Foresters, while the Lakers' Paul Preston, the city's leading scorer with 72 goals and 12 assists last season, was held to two goals.
Barnes entered the year at 62-8 over the last 5 1/2 seasons.
Sabelhaus honored again
Two-time All-Metro quarterback Bobby Sabelhaus, a Parade All-American who is headed for the University of Florida on a full scholarship, was named to the 100-member Schutt Sports Group All-American squad.
Sabelhaus, the state's leader in total passing yardage and in number of career completions, is among 12 quarterbacks chosen and the only player from Maryland.
The team has been chosen by Scholastic Coach Magazine since 1951.
Dunbar softball coach Kevin Furlow thought his Poets would be a force to be reckoned with in the city after finishing second in the 2A-3A league with a 14-4 record last year.
The season's still young, but after yesterday's 24-9 defeat at Poly, the Poets were 2-2, including a 40-8 rout of Northwestern in their season-opener.
Calvert Hall will conduct its Hoops Team Camp, open to boys and girls aged 11-15, June 1-23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
