Terps' Reed to sit again

Et Cetera

April 07, 2008

Maryland men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle confirmed yesterday that freshman attackman Travis Reed will not play in the No. 6 Terps' game at No. 12 Johns Hopkins on Saturday.

Reed, the team's leading goal scorer, was suspended for Friday's loss to No. 8 Navy after he was charged with driving a motorized scooter under the influence and possession of marijuana after being stopped by police early Wednesday morning.

The Diamondback, the university newspaper, first reported the charges and said that Reed was searched Thursday. However, Cottle said Reed was stopped Wednesday.

Reed, a Cockeysville native and Boys' Latin graduate who had 18 goals and five assists in nine games, apologized for his actions.

"I made a mistake and I am sorry I let my teammates, coaches and fans of the Maryland men's lacrosse program down," Reed said in a written statement released by the university yesterday. " ... I am working hard to make sure I never put myself in a situation to make a mistake like that again."
