Reigning national champion Salisbury has captured 17 league titles in the 20-year history of the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC), but this season's campaign may be the most critical to the program. Wednesday night's 10-8 loss to No. 3 Stevenson dropped the No. 6 Sea Gulls to 10-3 and may have endangered the team's bid for an at-large berth in the South Region of the NCAA tournament. Coach Jim Berkman also pointed out another side effect of the setback. “We might have lost the opportunity to host some playoff games,” he said.

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.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound sophomore anchored a Sea Gulls defense that surrendered just seven goals in two wins against McDaniel and No. 15 Gettysburg. Smith had a team-best five caused turnovers and was tied for second on the team with six ground balls in those two victories. He leads Salisbury with eight caused turnovers this season.

Hello, old friend. That may as well be the greeting Salisbury has when York visits Sea Gull Stadium in Salisbury at noon Saturday in a NCAA tournament second-round game. The contest will be the third meeting this season between Capital Athletic Conference rivals. “There's good and bad,” Sea Gulls coach Jim Berkman said Thursday morning. “I guess you could say that we definitely know their tendencies. And they know ours, so that's probably not so good. It's tough to play anybody three times in any sport and especially in our game when the reality is, the game is meant to be played one time a year and two at the most.

For the second straight year, Frostburg State finished fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference, earning for the program the right to play host to a league tournament quarterfinal. Last spring, the fourth-seeded Bobcats fell, 11-6, to No. 5 seed Mary Washington. Coach Tommy Pearce is hoping for a vastly different result when St. Mary's visits on Wednesday. “It's a great achievement,” Pearce said of hosting a conference tournament game. “We did have that happen last year, and last year, we beat Mary Washington and then they came back up that following Wednesday and beat us. So we know it's really hard to beat a team twice and St. Mary's is a good team.

Reeling from back-to-back Capital Athletic Conference losses to No. 2 Salisbury and No. 14 Mary Washington, St. Mary's has reason to be optimistic. The reigning CAC tournament champion Seahawks (5-7 overall and 1-2 in the league) played with their full arsenal of offensive players as sophomore attackman Conor Jordan, freshman attackman Patrick Regan, junior midfielder Nate Babcock (Severn) and sophomore midfielder Austin Toland (St. Paul's) returned from a variety of injuries. Despite losing, 11-6, to the Sea Gulls on Saturday, St. Mary's coach Chris Hasbrouck said he was hopeful about what he saw from the offense.

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.

St. Mary's enjoyed a number of milestones this past spring: the program's first 12-win campaign since 2007, the school's first Capital Athletic Conference tournament crown in six attempts and the university's first appearance in the NCAA tournament. Those accomplishments should be badges of pride for the players and coaches, but they also serve to raise the bar for the Seahawks in 2014, coach Chris Hasbrouck acknowledged. “It'll be a very different fall for us this year,” he said.

No. 4 Stevenson not only defeated No. 12 and reigning national champion Salisbury, 12-6, in a NCAA tournament semifinal to advance to the program's first title game, but the Mustangs may also have banished some ghosts of the past. Stevenson had been escorted out of the postseason in two of the past three seasons by the Sea Gulls, who still command a 10-6 advantage in their series with their former Capital Athletic Conference foe. What made Sunday's triumph even more special is that the Mustangs had been evicted from the Final Four in 2010 and 2012 by Salisbury, a program that has captured 10 national titles.

St. Mary's has been to five Capital Athletic Conference tournament finals and emerged empty-handed each time. But the program had not been to the title game since 2007, which makes Sunday's game at No. 8 Salisbury meaningful for coach Chris Hasbrouck. “It's another step,” he said Thursday. “At the beginning of the season, we set some goals, and this was definitely one of them. We envisioned ourselves here, and it's a lot of games and a long season, and we've persevered, and we're in a spot where we thought we would be, and that's with a chance to win the conference title.
