When it came time to choose her college lacrosse path, Shannon Aikens initially steered away from the place that had been her second home for half her life. Loyola appealed to the Mercy senior, but she wasn't sure she could forge her own identity playing in the program her mother built into a national power. Diane Geppi-Aikens' idomitable spirit remains with the team nine years after her death following a long and public battle with brain cancer. "Ever since I was little, I've been introduced as Diane's youngest," Aikens said.

The Cavaliers are still reeling from the death of senior Yeardley Love, the Notre Dame Prep graduate who was found dead in her apartment Monday and was laid to rest in Baltimore on Saturday.
