After winning a fourth straight state title last month, P.J. Kesmodel quietly retired from coaching Mount Hebron girls lacrosse.Eight years ago, it was anything but quiet when he started the program.As soon as the Vikings took the field, many women coaches exploded, predicting that he would ruin the game. And Kesmodel had a lot of critics -- mostly because, in a very traditional game, he had little use for tradition.His team played in shorts instead of kilts, with plastic sticks instead of wooden, and he used whatever game strategy worked.

After two years away from girls lacrosse, P.J. Kesmodel is ready to come back. The architect behind Mount Hebron's rise to prominence in the early 1990s, Kesmodel has been hired as varsity coach at Seton Keough. "I wanted to take a year off and see if I missed it," said Kesmodel, who left City College's program in 1999. "By last spring and into the summer, I decided I really wanted to do it again." At City College, Kesmodel's Knights went from 2-9 to 13-3 in three years and won two Baltimore City championships.

Having five seniors with Division I lacrosse scholarships return, along with four other varsity starters from a state championship team a year ago, guaranteed Mount Hebron coach P. J. Kesmodel nothing more than lots of talent and high expectations.The defending Class 1A-2A champion Vikings and Kesmodel proved 1992's state title was no fluke by compiling a second straight perfect season, a 36-game winning streak and a 9-7 victory in the state championship over Loch Raven (17-1), the last team to defeat Mount Hebron (1991 state semifinals)

Each year since high school girls lacrosse was introduced in Howard County, Mount Hebron has distinguished itself as a county champion ora contender. And each year, Vikings coach P. J. Kesmodel has ducked the accolades that come to those who run first-class programs.This year the Vikings -- after conceding the county championship to Centennial last season -- regained the title with a devastating, 7-0 record against the league.Going unbeaten against the county is nothing new for Hebron. The Vikings turned the trick in 1988 and 1989.

* P. J. Kesmodel, Mount Hebron -- In his 20th year of coaching lacrosse, Kesmodel had one of his most rewarding seasons, guiding the Vikings to their fourth consecutive Howard County championship and third straight state title. After losing five Division I scholarship players from his loaded 1993 team, Kesmodel had to rebuild, especially on defense, where the Vikings were wiped out by graduation. Making a three-peat seem even more unlikely, Mount Hebron was no longer in Class 1A/2A, where they had won back-to-back titles.

With nearly 10 minutes left in the first half, Mount Hebron girls lacrosse coach P. J. Kesmodel wanted a word with his defending state champions."I called a timeout just to yell at them," Kesmodel said of his Vikings, who started sluggishly and only led host Centennial, 4-1 at that point.Whatever Kesmodel said, it worked. The No. 1-ranked Vikings picked up the pace to earn a 9-2 halftime lead, eventually topping the Eagles, 15-4, yesterday in a showcase of Howard county's two best teams.Still, after Mount Hebron (7-0, 3-0 in county play)

Player of the YearLauren Aumiller, Notre Dame Prep, senior, midfield: When it came to midfield domination, nobody could match Aumiller. Her performance in the Association of Independent Schools A Division championship put an appropriate finishing touch on her four-year varsity career. In leading the No. 2 Pirates (14-1-1) to a 12-11 overtime victory over No. 4 Bryn Mawr, Aumiller had a goal and four assists, three take-aways and won the majority of NDP's 14 draws. Known for her ability on the draw, often sending the ball up and snatching it with her stick extended above her long arms, Aumiller sparked a lot of the Pirates' offense.

In Howard County girls lacrosse, the rich just seem to get richer.That's good news for Mount Hebron and bad news for everyone else.The Vikings, coming off a 16-2 year in which they swept state, regional and county titles, have four of the seven returning All-County first-team players. They also have some great incentive to finish off one of their strongest seasons ever -- coach P.J. Kesmodel will retire from coaching at the end of the season.Kesmodel, who plans to go back to school, has compiled an impressive record as the Vikings' only head coach winning three state, six county and seven regional titles.
