Among the candidates whom Towson's search committee interviewed for the head men's lacrosse coaching vacancy, the best man for the job was one who was already within the Tigers' ranks. In confirming the news that the school had promoted associate head coach and defensive coordinator Shawn Nadelen to head coach, athletic director Mike Waddell said Nadelen's background and experiences helped him emerge as the school's choice to succeed Tony Seaman, who parted ways with the university May 9. "From the very get-go, Shawn was the standard that we were measuring things up against because when you look at his background as a prep and as a collegian and as a professional and member of our world championship team and the captain of the [the New Jersey Storm of the National Lacrosse League]

Carl Runk nervously walked into the last-second meeting with his Towson University lacrosse team yesterday. He stumbled through a prepared speech about continuing to work hard on academics and lacrosse, and then he broke down.Fighting back tears, Runk delivered the shocking announcement: He was resigning after 31 years and 422 games as coach of Towson. He quickly exited in a flurry of emotion as the Tigers gave him a standing ovation."After meetings with our president, Hoke Smith, and athletic director, Wayne Edwards, it is felt it's time for a change," said Runk 62, who will continue to teach three classes in the kinesiology department.

The Towson State lacrosse team is in an all-too-familiar position. The Tigers (5-2) have a superior record but are worrying whether they will get into the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I tournament.Coach Carl Runk's TSU team has been the target of snubs from the "Lords of Lacrosse," the committee that selects the 12-team tournament field, in six of the past seven seasons. Last year the Tigers were 11-2 and did not get into the tournament.This season, Towson, which is ranked No. 9 in The Sun's poll, has lost to Loyola and Maryland, but Runk believes that his team must be impressive in its last four regular-season games to make LTC the tournament.

Though Towson State's marvelous lacrosse season came to a disheartening end Monday, coach Carl Runk already is looking ahead.All-America defenseman Carl Beerenick and attackman John Blatchley, both juniors, will return, joined by what Runk says is a fine recruiting class, for another run at the school's first national crown since it won the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II-III championship 17 years ago."We feel that getting to the finals is going to help us," said Runk, whose team lost to North Carolina, 18-13, in the NCAA Division I final Monday in Syracuse, N.Y. "We have signed some really fine lacrosse players."

Towson State lacrosse coach Carl Runk was concerned only with his own team coming into yesterday's game at Minnegan Stadium.He didn't know a thing about Bucknell, the visitor -- and it turned out he didn't have to.Towson (3-2) outclassed the Bison (2-3) in its home opener, 19-8. It could have been much worse if Runk hadn't substituted liberally in the second period."That's what we needed, a confidence builder," said Runk, whose team had been off to its worst start since 1982 after losing two straight, to Syracuse and Loyola.

Headlining "Team Maryland" is McDonogh's All-Metro junior attackman Joe Benson, who registered 70 goals and 49 assists this spring.

The No. 15 Hereford boys lacrosse team is good enough to hang with most teams in the metro area. It looked like weather would be the Bulls' toughest opponent in their quest for their first regional championship since 2003. Due to rain, the Bulls were forced to play three games in three nights against quality opponents. They beat Franklin (10-4) on Tuesday in the quarterfinals, Fallston (11-4) on Wednesday in the semifinals and had to face Towson last night in Parkton. There was no sign of fatigue in the Bulls though, as they rolled to a 15-5 victory.

With less than 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Hereford boys lacrosse coach Carl Runk had the play he wanted to run. The Bulls were tied in their home opener with North Carroll, and Runk had the formation he wanted, but attackman Ryan Rock decided to improvise. "We had set up a certain pattern, but [Rock] forced, but he was in position to take the shot," Runk said. " ... He was high-percentage for us, and you take what you can get in this game." Rock raced from behind the net and scored the game-winner in a 14-13 victory for Hereford.
