Taking aim at the ever-accelerating recruiting of young athletes, the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Association issued a statement Wednesday to its membership indicating that it does not support recruiting events for boys who have yet to enter ninth grade. "College coaches are great teachers of the game. We should be involved in helping develop both players and coaches," IMLCA president Richie Meade, head coach at Furman and former Navy head coach, said in the statement. "Programs that teach are very valuable in advancing our sport in a healthy way. We all agree recruiting young men when they have not yet entered high school is not the direction in which lacrosse should move.

AS A STEADY DRIZZLE fell downtown last week, only three people stood inside Max's at Camden Yards. Owner Ron Furman and two workers came to dismantle, not drink. Max's closed Oct. 2 after the Ravens game started and the crowd shuffled out. For seven years, pre- and post-game patrons packed the bar's corner spot at 300 W. Pratt St. But Furman could never find a way to fill tables on nongame nights. "It's a tough corner," Furman said. The first year, Furman said, he wasn't ready for the volume of food sales.
