New grandstands are on the way at the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Field in North Baltimore -- even though the construction pace may be one step ahead of the city's zoning process.A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday before the city's zoning board on Hopkins' plan to enlarge the grandstands on the north side of the field on University Parkway. But ground was broken on the $2.3 million project early last month -- a month before next week's hearing.Hopkins wants to complete the 4,700-seat grandstands -- which will replace permanent and temporary bleachers -- by the opening of the lacrosse season March 1. The old bleachers have been torn down, and concrete pillars have been erected to support what will be a 32-foot-high structure.

The past 10 months have been a long wait for Johns Hopkins , which lost 29-24 to Wesley in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs on Nov. 23. Brandon Cherry said every member of the Blue Jays has been chomping at the bit for the start of the upcoming 2014 season, which kicks off on Saturday at noon with a home game against Randolph Macon at Homewood Field. “Everybody's just excited to get back on the field,” the junior running back said. “It's been a while since our last loss to Wesley, and we're putting that behind us. We're coming in with the fresh mind that it's a new season and we're ready to get back in it.” The new season means a featured tailback role for the Parkville resident and Boys' Latin graduate.

For the past seven years - whether it was blisteringly hot, freezing cold, raining or snowing - Rudiger Ruckmann left his Northwood home every Wednesday at the crack of dawn, carrying his water bottle and beat-up Adidas shoes, to run on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Field track. "We would meet there in any kind of conditions - 20 degrees below zero, three feet of snow," the 41-year-old Ruckmann said. "It would be driving rain, 90 degrees, but we're troopers, and that was always a great meeting place for us and other crazy runners and walkers in Baltimore."

By the middle of November, the Johns Hopkins football team had completed a perfect 10-0 regular season, captured a fifth straight Centennial Conference title and earned a third consecutive trip to the Division III playoffs. But all those good vibes evaporated in a 29-24 first-round loss to Wesley at Homewood Field, a game in which the Blue Jays surrendered the decisive 33-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left. Junior running back Brandon Cherry said he needed just a couple days to put the loss behind him. But the Parkville native and Boys' Latin graduate acknowledged that he watched the game several times to see what he could have done differently.

The two programs met for the first time last year with Johns Hopkins blasting Michigan, 17-8, on Feb. 23. The rivalry should only grow more intense when both teams form the Big Ten conference next season with Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers. The Wolverines (2-1) opened the season with a 15-goal loss to then-No. 12 Penn State, but have bounced back with victories over Mercer (20-7 on Feb. 14) and Detroit (14-13 in overtime on Wednesday). The offense has been spearheaded by the attack duo of freshman Ian King (eight goals and one assist)

Talk all you want about the new era of parity in college lacrosse, there's still nothing to compare with the rivalry that put the "old" in old-school. The 111th meeting between Maryland and Johns Hopkins drew a capacity-plus homecoming crowd to Homewood Field for a game that the No. 9 Blue Jays sorely needed to win to ensure that they would not be left out of the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. The fifth-ranked Terps did not need it nearly as much, and the case could probably be made that their urgency deficit was evident until the final minutes of an 11-6 Hopkins victory on a simply glorious spring afternoon.

Homewood Field in Baltimore is one of the more tradition-rich sites for men's lacrosse, and more than one opponent challenging Johns Hopkins has felt slightly intimidated by the venue, the nine NCAA championship banners and the blue- and white-clad crowd. But after scoring a 10-9 decision against the Blue Jays at Homewood on April 5, 2013, Albany - which will pay another visit on Friday at 7 p.m. - has no qualms about entering enemy territory. “We have a lot of guys who played last year and are playing again this weekend, knowing that they can step onto that field and can play well and can compete with them,” said Great Danes coach Scott Marr, a former attackman at Johns Hopkins and former offensive coordinator at Maryland.

The Johns Hopkins football team's appearance in the Sunday evening unveiling of the NCAA Division III tournament was a mere formality, but the program got a glimpse of its postseason future. The No. 8 Blue Jays will play host to No. 15 Wesley in the first round of the playoffs. The game is scheduled for Saturday at Homewood Field in Baltimore with kickoff expected to occur at 12 p.m. Johns Hopkins had already cemented a berth in the tournament by defeating Franklin & Marshall, 45-30, on Nov. 9 to capture the Centennial Conference title and the automatic bid that accompanies that victory.

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team scored seven straight goals in the third quarter to turn a tightly contested game into a rout as the No. 13 Blue Jays defeated visiting No. 18 Towson, 15-8, at Homewood Field. The victory continued Hopkins' dominance in the series; the Blue Jays (2-0) now hold a 39-3 all-time advantage. Towson's last win came in a 13-12 victory on April 27, 1996. Hopkins led 6-5 at halftime, and the teams traded goals in the first three minutes of the third quarter.

He speaks brashly, and he carries a potent stick that amplifies gifts most goalies only dream of having. Pound for pound, few players in collegiate lacrosse have sturdier shoulders than Johns Hopkins goalie Brian Carcaterra. Few players can negate the so-called limitations of the position like the 5-foot-8, 165-pound redshirt senior. Few teams ride a keeper's unflinching confidence like the Blue Jays lean on their little big man. When fourth-seeded Hopkins faces off against Notre Dame in tomorrow's NCAA tournament quarterfinal round, Carcaterra will take the Homewood Field stage for the last time, with a Final Four wish in College Park weighing heavily on his mind.

Of the many losses on the offensive side of the ball for a Johns Hopkins football team that last season made its third straight playoff appearance and fourth in the last five years, perhaps no unit suffered more of a blow than the offensive line. Tackles Vincenzo Bonaddio and Armand Jenifer, left guard Kevin Quinn and center Ben Cranston graduated, leaving junior right guard Colin Egan as the only returning starter from last year's front five. Restocking the offensive line is a priority for a Blue Jays program that has prided itself on running the ball.

As the Patriot League tournament champion, No. 1 Loyola Maryland has already secured a berth in the upcoming NCAA tournament. And No. 6 Johns Hopkins - despite the lack of a conference tournament's automatic qualifier - is considered a sure thing to qualify for the postseason. But there is still much on the line when the Blue Jays (10-3) visit the Greyhounds (14-1) at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore on Saturday at 12 p.m. Johns Hopkins could guarantee a first-round game at Homewood Field in Baltimore with a win, while Loyola could earn a top-four seed with a victory.

Coaches love to play head games. When Loyola coach Charley Toomey was asked about his upcoming game with Johns Hopkins, minutes after his team had beaten Lehigh on Sunday, he mumbled something about having to watch game film. Now, that's funny. No. 1 Loyola and No. 6 Hopkins are within walking distance of each other, and they recruit the same players. Yet, Toomey said he has to look at film before he can go into detail about the Blue Jays. There is nothing these two coaches and programs don't know about each other.

A goal by Villanova freshman midfielder Devin McNamara (Boys' Latin) and a one-minute penalty on Johns Hopkins junior long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino 77 seconds into the third quarter not only helped the Wildcats close the gap to 7-6, but also appeared to give them a prime opportunity to tie the score. But sophomore Craig Madarasz - filling in for an ineffective Drew Kennedy - won the ensuing faceoff (one in his 7-of-9 night) and the No. 5 Blue Jays eventually pulled away with a 13-7 victory at Homewood Field in Baltimore on Wednesday night.

Johns Hopkins has won all six meetings in its series with Villanova, which is resuming for the first time since 2002. The Blue Jays have outscored their opponents, 82-61, while going 5-2 at home, while Villanova has outscored its opponents, 69-67, in its 3-4 record on the road. The Wildcats (5-7) have won four of their last six games, but an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament seems unlikely. They do have the Big East tournament AQ as a means to NCAAs. Senior long-stick midfielder John LoCascio has recorded four goals and 12 assists this season and is ranked fifth in Division I in caused turnovers per game (2.3)

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team will open the season with a pair of home games, hosting Ohio State in its only pre-noon start of the season Feb. 9 before Towson comes to Homewood Field on Feb. 15. The Blue Jays are coming off a season in which the program failed to reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1971, the year the event debuted as an eight-team tourney. Hopkins will play five other teams that made the tournament last season, including four in a five-game stretch with home contests against national runner-up Syracuse (March 15)

With a few significant wins under its belt, the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team wanted to ensure that it did not incur what might be considered a bad loss in the eyes of the NCAA tournament selection committee. The No. 5 Blue Jays stayed on track Wednesday, avoiding an upset bid by visiting Villanova and scored a 13-7 victory before an announced 928 at Homewood Field in Baltimore. Johns Hopkins had to rally back from deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in the first quarter and led 7-6 and 8-7 in the third quarter.
