ST. JAMES - St. James didn't win the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference cross country title on Wednesday, but to coach Keith Muller, the Saints did the next best thing. They finished second. "It is our best finish since this league was formed a decade ago," Muller said. "We knew that we had a chance to win, but Potomac was definitely the favorite coming into the race. " And Potomac School didn't disappoint. Landon Schmitt overcame soreness from a weekend automobile accident to post the winning time of 16 minutes, 41.5 seconds over the 3.1-mile course to lead Potomac School to the team title.

SAINT JAMES - Saturday's game was like a Rice Krispies treat for the St. James football team. It was a snap, tackle and pop kind of day that made all the difference for the Saints in a 33-7 victory over Potomac School. St. James got eight points off Potomac's opening snap and used Spencer Draper's touchdown-saving tackle in the third quarter to seize the momentum and set up quarterback Mike Russ to pop through the line for two decisive touchdowns that put the Mid Atlantic Conference game on ice. "This was really big," said Russ, who scored on runs of 1 and 10 yards as the Saints relied on veer option plays in the second half to move the ball.

While the Saint James wrestling team finished second to Potomac School at the Mid-Atlantic Conference tournament Friday at Sidwell Friends, the Saints still left with at least a share of the conference title. The Saints won the MAC regular-season duals, finishing 5-0, while Potomac School, which lost 39-36 to Saint James in a December dual, most likely will finish second at 4-1. Potomac still has to wrestle St. Andrew's Episcopal, a team Saint James crushed 72-9 earlier this month.

The conditions at Saint James on Saturday were something out of a late fall NFL game, as the rain came down in droves for the Saints' game against Potomac School. Unfortunately for the Saints, Potomac was barely affected, shutting out Saint James, 50-0. A combination of a heavy Potomac rushing attack and the Saints' difficulties on offense led to a 43-0 Potomac lead at halftime. Ryan Eckert owned the first quarter, catching a 23-yard pass from Russell Schmidt for his first score, returning an interception 28 yards for his second score, and splitting the uprights with a 22-yard field goal.

andrewm@herald-mail.com ST. JAMES - The first two plays from scrimmage set the tone and Potomac School quarterback Brent Locey continued to hit the pitch Thursday as the Panthers knocked off St. James 33-0 in their rain-soaked Mid Atlantic Conference matchup. After Cooper Jones intercepted St. James quarterback David Hammond on the game's first play, Locey - who was 11 of 20 passing for 174 yards and three touchdowns - turned a double-reverse, throw-back pass into a 50-yard touchdown down the right sideline to the wide-open Jones on the very next play, less than 30 seconds into the opening period.

By SHELDON SHEALER Staff Writer ST. JAMES - It took only six minutes and three seconds for St. James boys' basketball team to squander a 32-minute contest. In the third quarter of the Saints' Sunday matinee with Potomac School, the Panthers turned St. James' ill-advised shots, turnovers and fouls into a 15-0 run, erasing a nine-point Saints' lead, en route to a 49-44 Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference victory. Sitting slumped in an office couch, St. James coach Wayne Ridenour, bitterly upset at the defeat, said: "We didn't recognize things very well.
