May 09, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

The winner of Saturday's battle between Johns Hopkins and Loyola was supposed to earn a spot in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament field. The loser's season was going to be over.

But when the field for the tournament was announced tonight, both local schools were in, along with Mount St. Mary's and Maryland, the No. 3 seed. The Blue Jays have not missed an NCAA tournament since it started in 1971.

The Terps will play host to Hofstra on Saturday at noon while Loyola faces No. 7 seed Cornell on the road Saturday. Mount travels to Charlottesville, Va., Saturday to meet No. 1 Virginia, which will be playing its first game since senior player George Huguely allegedly killed a member of the women's team, Yeardley Love, of Cockeysville.

Hopkins squares off against Duke on Sunday at noon in Durham.

The Final Four will be in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium the weekend of May 29-31.
