For Adam Borcz, it could easily have been a time to exhale after a year filled with one life-shaping decision after another. Most of his Navy lacrosse teammates had retreated to the locker room after the last practice of the season, leaving Borcz practically alone on the field. "He stayed on that field for about an hour, just shooting," Navy coach Richie Meade recalls. "I don't think I ever remember in four years leaving or coming onto the field without him being there." "In the Navy, you learn a concept of never letting your teammates down," said Borcz, a midfielder who, two days later, scored four goals as the Midshipmen dispatched Army, 10-4.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Violence continued across Iraq yesterday, with clashes, insurgent attacks and bombings in the capital and a grisly discovery in the northern city of Mosul. But in a heartening development, a Polish woman who had been abducted in the country three weeks ago suddenly reappeared in her homeland, tired but safe. The day's heaviest fighting came in the Baghdad neighborhood of Adhamiya, where U.S. and Iraqi forces had raided a Sunni Muslim mosque Friday after afternoon prayers.

Adam Borcz is a plebe, but the Anne Arundel County native has been following Navy lacrosse long enough to know about the intense rivalry between the Midshipmen and the University of Pennsylvania.Yesterday afternoon, Borcz was right in the middle of it. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound midfielder got four goals and an assist as Navy downed the Quakers, 12-11, before 739 at Rip Miller Field.Penn cut the lead to one with 1: 05 remaining, but Navy won the ensuing faceoff on a pushing penalty and was able to run out the clock.

It was one of those occasions when good fortune was much more productive than good planning.Adam Borcz happened to be in the right place to scoop up an errant pass yesterday and fire it past Georgetown goalie Brian Hole with four seconds left in the first overtime to lift the Naval Academy to a stirring 12-11 lacrosse victory before 2,637 sun-drenched fans at Dewey Field.The win over the seventh-ranked Hoyas was a vital one for the 10th-ranked Midshipmen, who were in danger of falling to .500 with four ranked teams remaining on their schedule, including Maryland and Johns Hopkins.

On a foggy day by the Severn River, the Navy lacrosse team found the light. Winless in their first three games for the first time since they began playing the sport in 1908, the Midshipmen reached back for a little extra in the final three minutes yesterday and outlasted Rutgers, 11-9, in an East Coast Athletic Conference game at Rip Miller Field. "It was exhausting," said Navy's Adam Borcz (Calvert Hall). "That is the hardest we've played all year and the guys are just exhausted. I don't know if we could have gone overtime."

If, as expected, Navy's lacrosse team misses the NCAA Division I tournament field, at least it will have a fond memory as to how the 2001 season concluded. The Midshipmen continued their year-long domination of archrival Army last night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, notching a 10-4 victory that probably still won't be enough to get them into the playoffs. Navy's players were hoping for some help in future games to enhance their one solid victory over a highly ranked opponent (Georgetown)

The regular season has nearly reached its midpoint, and Navy soon faces a chance to clinch a berth in the NCAA tournament. The Midshipmen, who should improve their record to 6-1 tonight against visiting Air Force, can win the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference title by beating No. 5 Georgetown on Saturday. A victory at Georgetown would leave Navy in the driver's seat in the ECAC. Even if they lost to Penn State on April 15 in their sixth and final conference game, the Midshipmen would wrap up their league schedule with one loss, and they would have the edge over the Hoyas in a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Many coaches liken their teams to a family. But in the case of No. 13 Navy, that analogy isn't far off.The Mids (5-3) have three sets of brothers: Adam and Alex Borcz; Howie and Kevin Meehan; and Mike and Tommy Sheedy.The Borcz brothers have combined for 19 goals and four assists. Kevin Meehan has nine goals, while Howie has made his impact on the defensive end with 15 ground balls. And the Sheedy brothers are in a reserve role in their first year with the Mids."Everybody on the team thinks of each other as brothers," said Adam Borcz, a plebe midfielder from Calvert Hall who is referred to by his teammates as Little Borcz.
