Fancy meeting you here, Gary Gait.Not far from Johns Hopkins, little more than a stone's throw from the cradle of lacrosse, lives Gait with his wife of six months, Nicole.This is, indeed, interesting. For four years, Gary and his twin brother, Paul, were the scourges of college lacrosse, leading Syracuse to three straight NCAA championships through 1990 and leaving Johns Hopkins and everyone else in their wake. Many said they were the best offensive players in the history of the game.And now, in what was once for him enemy territory, resides Gary Gait, in a roomy unit in an apartment building in Homewood.

Taylor Cummings fought off monster butterflies in her stomach last year as a freshman starter for the Maryland women's lacrosse team. Even though the McDonogh graduate ranked No. 1 in her recruiting class and played for the No. 1 high school team in the country, she could not shake the nerves before every Terps game. She always felt there was so much more to learn playing on a Maryland team ranked No. 1 until it fell in the NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina.

The Philadelphia Wings were the ones who were supposed to be gasping for air in the second half of last night's Major Indoor Lacrosse League game.After all, the Wings should have been spent by halftime, considering they played Buffalo just a night earlier.Instead, it was the well-rested Thunder that was trying to catch its wind after giving up seven third-quarter goals en route to a 17-12 loss before 5,989 at the Baltimore Arena."Yesterday, we were a little hesitant and we weren't going after it and we lost, so today was a must-win game for us," said game MVP Gary Gait, who moved to within one of tying Thunder assistant coach John Tucker as the Wings' all-time leading scorer with 77 goals.

When Johns Hopkins landed the first-ever oral commitment from a high school freshman lacrosse player last month, one thing was certain: It would not be the last. And now comes word of the second player who has made his college choice before setting foot on a high school field: long-stick midfielder/defenseman Jack Reilly of Conestoga High in Berwyn, Pa., who has committed to Virginia, according to multiple reports. Reilly joins Forry Smith , who orally committed to Hopkins in November . Smith attends Haverford School in Havertown, less than 10 miles east of Conestoga in southeastern Pennsylvania's lacrosse hotbed.

Gary Gait scans the field and sees the accustomed double team waiting.No space in the middle of the field. No opening around the goal. Nevertheless this is Gait, the quickest, strongest and more importantly, the most creative lacrosse player ever.So with one quick move behind the goal, he catapults himself in front of the goal and whips an airborne shot over his shoulder."Gary can do things that no one else can do," Thunder coach John Tucker said. "He is the Michael Jordan of our sport."In the United States, he's compared to Jordan.

He brought a swagger to lacrosse with his flashy play and endless array of acrobatic shots which, decades later, still rack up views on YouTube. How many different ways could Tom Marechek, onetime star of the Baltimore Bayhawks, score goals? Behind his back. Between his legs. Off the alley-oop pass. A crowd favorite was Marechek's "celebration goal," a maneuver in which he would fake a shot, then raise his arms in mock triumph. "When the goalie slumped and turned to pick the ball out of the net, that's when I dumped it in," he said.

Breeders' Cup Motion's 'Kingdom' to compete in Mile Animal Kingdom will return in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile on the Santa Anita Park turf on Nov. 3 with a chance to become the first Kentucky Derby winner to go on to Breeders' Cup glory since Unbridled in 1990. The reigning champion 3-year-old male of 2011, who finished second in last year's Preakness after winning the Derby, scored an easy turf win Feb. 18 at Gulfstream Park in his only start this year. He developed a stress fracture of the ilium three weeks later that knocked him out of the Dubai World Cup. Over the summer, trainer Graham Motion suggested the Mile as an option if the colt didn't encounter any setbacks.

No. 5 Syracuse (2-2)@No. 4 Maryland (5-1) Saturday, 1 p.m. The Orange's .500 record is a bit deceptive because one of those losses was in overtime to No. 1 Northwestern, 11-9. With that showing and Saturday's 12-11 double-overtime win at Florida, Gary Gait's team will be a dangerous opponent for the Terrapins, who have not lost to the Orange in 11 meetings. The Terps are coming off a big week of their own, however, rebounding from a 10-9 loss to Duke with a 12-9 win over then-No.

The first college lacrosse game Navy's Cindy Timchal ever coached didn't turn out the way most of them have since. She lost. On spring break 1982, she took her Northwestern team to Florida for the first game in the program's history. The Wildcats lost 9-8 to powerhouse Trenton State. The next day, they beat Dartmouth, 12-11. With that victory, Timchal began a journey to the pinnacle of her sport. Best known for winning seven straight national championships at Maryland, she has won more games than any other coach in the history of college lacrosse - men's or women's.

When the University of Maryland allowed men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle to resign May 23 after nine seasons, there were some who thought athletic director Debbie Yow was either gutsy or out of her mind. There was no middle ground. In the weeks after the resignation, it appeared to be the latter. But when the Terps hired Harvard coach John Tillman to replace Cottle on Tuesday, Yow might have scored a major victory. Only time will tell whether Tillman is a capable replacement, but the pedigree and potential are excellent.
