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.

St. Mary's went from capturing the Capital Athletic Conference tournament crown in 2013 to getting bounced by Frostburg State from the first round of the league tournament in 2014. So why is coach Chris Hasbrouck already looking forward to next season? The Seahawks graduated five starters, including their leading scorer, their top defenseman and their starting goalkeeper. But the team returns seven of its top 10 scorers, three defensemen who got considerable game experience, and a goalie who opened the 2013 campaign as the starter.

Graduation depleted Goucher of four starters - three on offense - and the program eventually bid farewell to the most successful coach in its history, but that did not prevent the team from extending its success in the Landmark Conference. Saturday's 7-6 overtime decision over Scranton cemented for the Gophers (7-7 overall and 5-0 in the league) the top seed and home-field advantage in the upcoming conference tournament with just one more league game against the Merchant Marine this Saturday.

Nick Delp turned in a flawless baseball performance Wednesday for No. 3 Calvert Hall. The junior threw a perfect game, striking out five, as the host Cardinals (21-6) defeated No. 15 Mount St. Joseph, 5-0, in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference tournament game. The Gaels (13-14) were eliminated. Calvert Hall scored single runs in the first two innings and three in the third. The Cardinals, who lost, 9-3, Monday to No. 8 Archbishop Curley, must face the host Friars on Friday at 4 p.m., with the winner advancing to the championship against No.2 Archbishop Spalding on Sunday at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.

It is still early, but the Towson women's soccer team is positioning itself for its first appearance in a conference tournament since 2001. With a 2-2 record in the Colonial Athletic Association, the Tigers (7-6-1 overall) currently sit in fifth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the conference tournament. The program has never qualified for the CAA tournament since joining the league for the 2002 campaign. The school played in six America East and Big South tournaments between 1992 and 2001, but reaching the CAA tournament would be a significant accomplishment.

No. 12 Washington College's 7-6 come-from-behind win against No. 5 and reigning national champion Salisbury on Wednesday night may prove to be a psychological lift for a program that had dropped 12 straight contests to the Sea Gulls. Perhaps more immediately, the victory might propel to the Shoremen (11-2) to their second consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament regardless of how they fare in the Centennial Conference tournament. With a 4-2 record in the league, Washington is currently third behind conference leaders Dickinson (12-0 overall and 5-0 in the Centennial)

This past season, Hood labored its way through a 3-14 season, which included a winless 0-8 record in the Middle Atlantic Conference and the jettisoning of head coach Jeremy Mattoon. But assistant coach Brad Barber predicated that the team would reverse course next spring. “Next year, I think it's going to be a totally different story,” he said. “If we have this conversation next year, I think you'll have a totally different view of Hood College lacrosse. I'm fairly confident.

Loyola Maryland has been ranked No. 1, played in a number of NCAA tournaments, and even captured a national championship in 2012. But for the first time in school history, the team will host a conference tournament this season. As a reward for being the top seed in the Patriot League tournament, the No. 1 Greyhounds (12-1) are hosting the semifinals Friday and the final on Sunday at Ridley Athletic Complex. It's a new experience for a program that had to travel to Denver in 2011 and 2012 and Hobart in 2013 to participate in the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournaments.

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.

Unlike last season, Towson will not have to wait until the final weekend of the regular season to find out if it has qualified for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. Despite Saturday's 14-11 loss to No. 15 and league rival Drexel, the Tigers clinched the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament. “Obviously, we're excited,” coach Shawn Nadelen said Monday afternoon. “We've played decently within the CAA this year, and we've earned enough wins to qualify us for postseason play.

Richmond coach Dan Chemotti said that at the beginning of the year, he and his team weren't even thinking about making the Atlantic Sun tournament. To him, it was more about the process than setting specific goals, and some practices early on indicated that the Spiders weren't anywhere close to where they wanted to be. Their one-goal loss in the program's opener at the hands of five-time national champion Virginia proved otherwise. Fast forward three months, and Richmond earned a trip to the NCAA tournament in its first year with an automatic berth from the newly formed A-Sun.

In the span of four days, Goucher went from absorbing the disappointment of losing to Landmark Conference rival Scranton to having the last word. After an 8-7 setback to the Royals on Saturday that prevented the Gophers from capturing the regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament, they returned the favor by knocking off Scranton, 8-4, in a tournament semifinal Wednesday night. The biggest difference, according to Goucher coach Brian Kelly, was the team's improved effort on defense.

In a nip-and-tuck game that wasn't decided until the final seconds, Goucher dropped a frustrating 8-7 decision to Landmark Conference rival Scranton on Saturday at Gopher Stadium in Towson. The reward for both teams is that they will meet in three days in a league tournament semifinal on Wednesday. The difference is that the Gophers (6-7 overall and 4-2 in the conference) will be the away team as they take to the road against the Royals (10-6, 5-1). Goucher went from potentially capturing its sixth consecutive regular-season title and the top seed to the No. 3 seed, but coach Brian Kelly pointed out that the team still has a chance to extend its season.

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.

No. 1 Loyola Maryland is one win away from doing something it has not done before. If the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League) can defeat Boston University (1-9, 1-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m., they will host the conference tournament semifinals April 25 and the final two days later at Ridley Athletic Complex. Loyola never hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which was awarded to the previous year's regular-season champion. Denver hosted that league's tournament in 2011 and 2012, and when the Greyhounds won the title in 2012, the ECAC elected to switch the host site to Hobart.

Having gone three consecutive years without an appearance in the Patriot League tournament, Navy is close to ending that streak. A pair of wins against Lafayette (11-3 on March 7) and Boston University (13-7 on Saturday) means that the Midshipmen (4-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference) own head-to-head tiebreakers over the Leopards (1-7, 1-4) and Terriers (1-8, 1-4). Those tiebreakers could be significant for Navy, which currently sits in sixth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the Patriot League tournament, which runs from April 22 to 27. “We're certainly in the driver's seat, if you will,” coach Rick Sowell said Tuesday morning.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)
