The Towson State lacrosse team is in an all-too-familiar position. The Tigers (5-2) have a superior record but are worrying whether they will get into the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I tournament.
Coach Carl Runk's TSU team has been the target of snubs from the "Lords of Lacrosse," the committee that selects the 12-team tournament field, in six of the past seven seasons. Last year the Tigers were 11-2 and did not get into the tournament.
This season, Towson, which is ranked No. 9 in The Sun's poll, has lost to Loyola and Maryland, but Runk believes that his team must be impressive in its last four regular-season games to make LTC the tournament.
