Loyola Maryland women's lacrosse coach Jen Adams first noticed Marlee Paton at a clinic in Melbourne, Australia, when Paton was just 12. "I remember seeing Marlee there as this tiny little peanut and thinking, 'This kid is going to be something else,'" Adams said. "You see a player like Marlee playing against women of my age and older and holding their own, and you see her teammates like [former Loyola All-American] Stacey Morlang trusting Marlee to take a shot at the end of the game.

When Maryland lacrosse coach Cathy Reese told her 5-year-old son Brody last week that the Terrapins might play Loyola and coach Jen Adams in the NCAA quarterfinals, Brody was all smiles. "Mommy, that's so great. You can play each other and tie and both go to the championships. " Unfortunately for the close friends, Brody's wishful scenario cannot come true. Only one can move on from Saturday's noon quarterfinal in College Park to the final four Memorial Day weekend in Stony Brook, N.Y. Facing each other won't be easy.

Loyola's move to the Patriot League will put women's coach Jen Adams on the opposite side of her coach at Maryland, Cindy Timchal, one of her greatest mentors. Navy's coach for all six of its NCAA seasons, Timchal coached Adams, a three-time national player of the year and the first Tewaaraton Award winner, on four national championship Terps teams from 1998-2001. This season will be the first where they square off as head coaches. Adams already has coached against two of her other coaching mentors, Syracuse coach Gary Gait, who assisted at Maryland during her run, and Maryland coach Cathy Reese, Adams' teammate for a year and briefly a Terps' assistant.

Jen Adams lingers at Ludwig Field after every Maryland game in College Park, holding court amid a dozen or so little girls clutching lacrosse sticks and Terrapins programs. The girls are clearly in awe. One brings Adams a crayon drawing. Some want to talk with her. They all want her autograph. But most of all, they want to play lacrosse the way she does. The 21-year-old Australian wields a lacrosse stick with precision and dexterity never before seen in the women's game. The most prolific scorer in collegiate women's lacrosse history, she piles up points the way the Terrapins pile up national championships.

Cass Cursaro , a member of the Australian national team that took the silver in the 2009 Women's World Cup, has been added to Loyola's roster. Cursaro, a 5-foot-11 midfielder, scored three goals and scooped up nine ground balls as a teammate of Greyhounds coach Jen Adams at the World Cup. Two years before, she led the Under-19 Australian team to the silver, while playing for the Brighton Bombers Lacrosse Club, the same club that produced Adams and a third of the 2009 Australian national team.

COLLEGE PARK - Jen Adams was as big as the stage last night as the senior midfielder from Australia established a Maryland record for points in a game in a 24-5 rout of No. 19 Johns Hopkins at Byrd Stadium. The top-ranked Terps normally play at Ludwig Field, but they moved into Byrd to start a women's-men's doubleheader. Adams, who is headed to her third straight national Player of the Year honor, racked up eight goals and four assists, and the 12 points bettered a record of 11 that she became the fourth player to reach last year.

Navy earned its first seeded spot in the NCAA women's Division I lacrosse tournament and Loyola's late surge was enough for an at-large bid when the selections to the newly-expanded 26-team bracket were announced Sunday night. As expected, Maryland, the only undefeated team in Division I at 19-0, received the No. 1 seed. The Terps , like the other seven seeds, will host the first and second rounds next weekend. Defending champion Northwestern earned the No. 2 seeded with its 8-3 win over Florida in Sunday's American Lacrosse Conference championship.

In last year's Big East championship game, the Loyola women's lacrosse team upset Syracuse to win its second consecutive conference title, snapping the Orange's 15-game winning streak in the process. No. 5 Syracuse got a measure of revenge in the rematch Friday night by scoring six consecutive goals early in the first half en route to a 19-9 victory at the Ridley Athletic Complex. Despite the loss, No. 17 Loyola already clinched a spot in the next weekend's four-team, Big East tournament with Syracuse, Georgetown and Connecticut.

After the Loyola women lost to James Madison two weeks ago, Greyhounds coach Jen Adams did not mince words. With their second straight loss to an unranked team - the 9-8 overtime loss to the Dukes coming three days after a stunning 10-9 loss at Delaware - the Greyhounds were out of the running for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, she said. That meant they would have to win the Big East Conference tournament to get back to the NCAAs for the third straight year and they needed to turn the corner in a big hurry.

For a team that has struggled with possession this season, the Loyola women's lacrosse team certainly set the right tone early in Saturday's game against James Madison. Unfortunately for the Greyhounds, they could not sustain it beyond the first half. The No. 12 Greyhounds scored the first four goals and shut out James Madison before halftime, but the Dukes seized the momentum early in the second half and dominated possession in overtime for a 9-8 victory at Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex.
