The St. Maria Goretti baseball team scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and hung on for a 9-6 win over Smithsburg on Wednesday night at Municipal Stadium. It was the fifth win in a row for the Gaels (12-8). "We didn't play our best baseball, but we found a way to win," Goretti coach John Bowen said. "That's the sign of a good team. We started to see the ball better later in the game. We were hitting the ball harder and we were finding the holes. " Aaron Wilkinson started a one-out rally in the sixth for the Gaels with a single to right and went to second when Connor Grimsley reached on an outfield error.

When Martin Geben steps onto the basketball floor, the fans will not see any razzle and dazzle. What one will see, however, is a young man who brings a lunch pail - also known as workmanlike effort - to the gym. Geben, a 6-foot-9 junior who hails from Vilnius, Lithuania, is the prize catch of St. Maria Goretti and, sometime soon, will be the same for a fortunate NCAA Division I college. Geben was instrumental in leading Goretti to a 21-13 record this season, the first time since 2004-05 that the Gaels exceeded 20 wins in a season.
