EWING, N.J. - Salisbury has never experienced a perfect season before, much less captured an NCAA women's lacrosse championship. But the Sea Gulls could accomplish both feats today in the Division III title game thanks to yesterday's 15-11 semifinal triumph over Colorado College at the College of New Jersey. Salisbury (17-0) will face 11-time champion the College of New Jersey, which the Sea Gulls defeated, 9-7, on March 13. New Jersey (15-2) beat defending champion Middlebury, 15-14, in the other semifinal.

Only written questions were allowed. Robert Small was roughly grabbed and physically removed from the meeting and humiliated and handcuffed, although charges of assaulting an officer were later dropped by Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger.

Last May, Washington College ended a three-year drought from the NCAA tournament, but dropped a 5-4 decision to Goucher in a first-round game at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium in Chestertown. That quick exit has lingered around the program, and coach Jeff Shirk said the players are using it as motivation for Wednesday's first-round home game against Colorado College (13-4). “The big thing is, I think the guys believe they deserve to be there,” Shirk said Monday. “So we're not wide-eyed.

Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Wednesday's visit was with St. Mary's. Thursday's visit is with Washington College. REVIEW The good: The Shoremen's 10-7 victory over Colorado College in the first round of the NCAA tournament may not have been earth-shattering, but the win was the program's first in the postseason since 2008 when that squad defeated Lynchburg, 12-9.

No. 11 Washington College's 10-7 victory over Colorado College in the first round of the NCAA tournament Wednesday propelled the team to a second-round matchup with No. 4 Stevenson Saturday night. The outcome also gave the program its first win in the postseason since 2008. “It's big,” coach Jeff Shirk said Friday morning. “I think it helped the guys gain some confidence. Last year, we experienced the tournament, but this year, we experienced a win. I think it's a pretty big steppingstone in trying to get where we're headed.” Last season, the Shoremen dropped a 5-4 decision to Goucher in the NCAA tournament first round.

Despite finishing behind Franklin & Marshall and Gettysburg in the regular-season standings in the Centennial Conference, Washington College earned an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament over the Diplomats and Bullets. The decision did not shock coach Jeff Shirk. “I had the mindset that because Dickinson won [the conference tournament], [the selection committee was] going to take two teams from the Centennial, and I thought they would take us over F&M,” Shirk said Monday morning, referring to South region rankings putting the Shoremen at No. 6 over Franklin & Marshall at No. 9 and Gettysburg at No. 10. “Just based on some of the criteria, I just felt that we were going to be ahead of Gettysburg and F&M even though we lost the head-to-head games this year.” Washington College (12-4)
