The Post should be ashamed of its choice of pictures to accompany the coverage of the Maret vs. Riverdale Baptist baseball game [" Culp settles in as Maret prevails ," Sports, April 24]. This is high school, not professional, sports so I winced when I saw that The Post printed photographs of a Riverdale player embarrassingly losing the ball in the sun and of another Riverdale player tumbling over a base. I'm sure there were dozens of pictures of good plays The Post could have used.

Since last season, Maret right-hander Andrew Culp has taken up yoga, with an instructor coming to his house twice a week to work on the senior's flexibility and breathing.

"He likes to live dangerously," senior catcher Austen Maggin said. Culp pitched out of two such gasp-filled, bases-loaded...

The last of Maret's 11 three-pointers, the basket midway through the fourth quarter of Saturday's Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament final helped...

When it comes to Maret 's basketball team, Garrett O'Donnell knows that his roster isn't exactly bursting with star power. Marlon Beck is the only Frogs player to average double-figure points at 12.5 per game and senior forward Tre Bowens , a Towson commit , is more known for his prowess on the football field than the hardwood.

Maret Coach Garrett O'Donnell can't recall the last time his team shot lights out from the floor. What he and his players do remember well is that it's been a long time – three years and five games, to be exact – since the Frogs beat Mid-Atlantic Conference rival Sidwell Friends . During Tuesday's home tilt, No. 12 Maret used a memorable performance from the field to erase its nightmarish skid, draining nine three-pointers in a 59-55...
