Salisbury's bid to capture its 11th national championship did not unfold as planned as the team dropped a 12-9 decision to Tufts in the Division III tournament final on May 25 at M&T Bank Stadium. It was only the fifth time in 15 title-game appearances that the Sea Gulls failed to bring home the crown, but the result did not diminish coach Jim Berkman's positive assessment of this year's squad, which went 21-2 overall and 6-1 in the Capital Athletic Conference. “I really enjoyed this team this year,” he said.

Before there was lacrosse for Kylor Berkman, there was soccer. "When I was 12 or 13, soccer was my favorite sport," he said. "And then when I got to high school, I kind of fell in love with lacrosse all over again. I didn't see myself following through with lacrosse all through college, but that's the way it turned out, and it worked out." Which is unfortunate for SUNY Cortland, Gettysburg and the rest of the Division III schools that have watched Berkman, a senior midfielder for the Salisbury men's lacrosse team, develop into perhaps the best player in the country.

When Jim Berkman says there is no Sam Bradman on Salisbury's roster, he was referring to the team's apparent lack of stars. Tufts coach Mike Daly certainly feels otherwise. Berkman said Tuesday morning that there is no Bradman or Kylor Berkman or Jason Coffman on the team, referring to the absence of a standout player on this year's squad. And that's fine with the veteran coach. “It's been a really enjoyable season,” Berkman said Tuesday morning during a conference call.

Lance Berkman swung, smashing the 90 mph fastball up the middle "about as hard as I could hit it. " As Berkman dashed from the batter's box in the first inning of that Houston Astros-Pittsburgh Pirates game April 24, 2010, the baseball hurtled back toward home plate and sailed over the head and glove of the Pirates' leaping catcher. It didn't make any sense. And yet, eerily, it did. "It just doesn't register at first. All of the sudden, I saw the ball coming back to me, and my first instinct was to run," said Berkman, now with the St. Louis Cardinals, who come to Baltimore this week.

CHESTERTOWN -In a season of peaks and valleys, it's not shocking that the Salisbury men's lacrosse team, ranked No. 5 in Division III, experienced highs and lows in its regular-season finale. The Sea Gulls took a four-goal advantage at halftime, squandered the lead, and trailed by one early in the fourth quarter before the eight-time overall and two-time reigning Division III national champions rallied to a 12-11 win over host Washington College before an announced 2,511 at Roy Kirby Jr. Stadium on Saturday in the teams' "War on the Shore."

SALISBURY -- The Salisbury men's lacrosse team gave Jim Berkman a share of an NCAA record, but not without a little anxiety. Twice in the second half of yesterday's installment of the "War on the Shore" series, Washington College trimmed three-goal deficits to one, but the Sea Gulls pulled away to cement a 15-11 decision at Sea Gull Stadium. The outcome also sealed the 326th career victory for Berkman, who tied former Army coach Jack Emmer for the NCAA record for most wins in a career.

Brett Berkman is heading to Baltimore County Circuit Court to fight his way back into school. The 23-year-old Towson University senior was suspended for a year in December after he was arrested and charged by Baltimore County police with possession with intent to distribute cocaine. The problem, says Berkman's attorney, is that his client has not been convicted and the arrest occurred more than a mile from the campus -- which would seem to be out of Towson's disciplinary reach. Not so, says the university.

If you think Salisbury is going to get after SUNY Cortland in the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse final this afternoon, you should have seen the Sea Gulls compete last fall. Since April 2003, the only thing between Salisbury and perfection is an overtime loss to Cortland in last season's final. They'll give championship weekend at M&T Bank Stadium a rematch this afternoon, but avenging the demise of an NCAA-record 69-game winning streak isn't behind the top-ranked Sea Gulls' 22-0 record.

Salisbury coach Jim Berkman is as candid as any coach in lacrosse. That honesty came through as he discussed the No. 2 Sea Gulls' surprising 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on Wednesday. “We didn't get it done on Wednesday,” Berkman said Friday morning. “We just weren't sharp. We weren't passing and catching well. We talked about a trap game all week, and we didn't play well. We threw numerous balls out of bounds playing catch with guys next to us on Wednesday that we hadn't done all season.

Every passing year has watched players leave Salisbury via graduation or other avenues, and the program has seemingly found a way to unearth capable replacements. That formula could be extremely timely for the upcoming season. Midfielders Ryan Clarke and Tyler Smith elected not to return the Sea Gulls. Clarke, who registered 35 goals and 29 assists in 2012 and was named a first-team All American before rupturing a spleen in the fourth game of last year and sitting out the remainder of 2013, was selected by the Rochester Rattlers with the 60th overall pick in the Major League Lacrosse's 2014 supplemental draft in December.  “Obviously, Ryan Clarke was a great player, but there's a lot of guys that have been here all fall and are working extremely hard together that have formed a pretty strong nucleus in the midfield,” Salisbury coach Jim Berkman said.

Ryan Clarke's senior campaign at Salisbury ended prematurely after he suffered a ruptured spleen in the fourth game of 2013 and was shut down for the rest of the year after a brief appearance in the fifth contest. The midfielder, who registered 35 goals and 29 assists in 2012 and was an early candidate for the Tewaaraton Award, could use his final year of eligibility in 2014, but that is not a certainty. “That's yet to be determined,” coach Jim Berkman said. “Ryan has eligibility to come back, but no decision has been made on whether he's going to do that or not do that.

Now that Salisbury secured one of the few coveted at-large berths in the NCAA tournament, Jim Berkman feels secure enough to stand on a limb and proclaim that the team can win the national championship for the third consecutive year and the 11th time in the program's history. Sounds crazy? Maybe, but aside from SUNY-Cortland, the top seed in the North region, and Dickinson, the top seed in the South, no other team in the field has less than two losses. “The crazy thing about this is, I really believe that we can still win the whole tournament,” the Sea Gulls coach said Monday morning.

Getting into a five-goal hole, failing to capitalize on extra-man opportunities, and committing too many penalties are just some of issues that flared up in No. 6 Salisbury's 10-8 loss to No. 3 Stevenson Wednesday night. Those troubles were noted by coach Jim Berkman, but he also tried to glean positives from the setback. “We've got to stay out of the penalty box, that's for sure,” he said Thursday morning, referring to the 13 penalties the team accumulated. “But I was proud of how our kids came back.

SALISBURY -- Since lacrosse coach Jim Berkman arrived at Salisbury State in 1989, the Sea Gulls have gone 75-13. For the third time in four years, they have finished the regular season as the top-ranked team in Division III. They are making their sixth straight trip to the NCAA tournament, playing host to Washington College today.But the Sea Gulls have never won the national title, and there is a sense of urgency this season. Next year, Hobart -- winner of 20 consecutive Division III titles -- will step up to Division I. Any championship won after this season may include the footnote A.H. -- After Hobart.

SALISBURY -- Salisbury State completed its first undefeated regular season and ended a 12-game losing streak against rival Washington College yesterday with a 20-4 lacrosse victory.The rout of the Shoremen -- playing without 10 players suspended before the season for drinking -- should keep Salisbury (13-0) in the No. 1 spot in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Division III poll. The victory also should guarantee that the Sea Gulls will have the home-field advantage throughout the Division III playoffs.

Salisbury's 7-6 double-overtime loss to Washington & Lee Wednesday might raise the panic meter surrounding the 10-time national champion, which is 1-2 for the first time and under .500 for the first time since 1989. But coach Jim Berkman said that the Sea Gulls' two-game losing streak is just a minor hiccup for the program. “There are 17 games in the lacrosse season. We just played three, and we've lost two games by a goal - one in double overtime. I don't panic,” Berkman said Thursday morning.

Salisbury's 13-12 loss to No. 9 Lynchburg Saturday will surely result in the 10-time reigning national champion falling from its No. 1 ranking in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) preseason poll when it is eventually updated. The setback also ended a 31-game winning streak for the Sea Gulls, who had previously lost, 16-12, to Stevenson on April 16, 2011. As far as coach Jim Berkman is concerned though, the loss isn't exactly stunning considering how graduation sapped the team of six starters from last season's squad that went 23-0.
