Former Salisbury midfielder Sam Bradman, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Outstanding Player of the Year, was chosen by the Minnesota Swarm with the 24th overall pick (third round) in the National Lacrosse League draft on Monday night.

Bradman had 71 goals and 28 assists last season for the Division III champion Sea Gulls and finished his college career with 304 points.

Bradman was also selected by the Long Island Lizards in January's Major League Lacrosse draft but chose to join the LXM Pro tour instead. The LXM Pro Tour was co-founded in late 2009 by former Maryland players Scott Hochstadt, Xander Ritz and brother Max Ritz, along with former Johns Hopkins All-American midfielder Kyle Harrison, who won the Tewaaraton Award as the nation's top player in 2005.

Ex-Thunder goalie Dietrich inducted into NLL HOF

Former Baltimore Thunder goalie Steve Dietrich became the 16th member of the NLL Hall of Fame on Tuesday night when he was the lone inductee for the class of 2012. The ceremony took place at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto.

Dietrich played 18 seasons in the NLL, twice being named Goalie of the Year and four times being selected as an All-Pro Goalie. In 2006, he became the first goaltender in NLL history  to be named league MVP.

Amonte Hiller is USILA National Coach of the Year again

For the fourth time in five years and the fifth time overall, Northwestern women's coach Kelly Amonte Hiller (Maryland) is the recipient of the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association National Coach of the Year award.

Amonte Hiller previously earned the honor in 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2011. In 2012, the Wildcats played in their NCAA-record-tying eighth straight national title game and won their seventh championship in that span. Along the way, Amonte Hiller became the winningest coach in NCAA tournament history with 32 career victories compared with just two losses.
