On the bus ride home from a scrimmage in Pennsylvania, the lacrosse players from St. Paul's School were feeling good. The Maryland team was already ranked among the best in the nation, and the season was about to begin. The mood was light, conversation strayed from one subject to another until - these were high school boys - the talk turned to sex. Laughter broke out as one player recalled a scene from the movie "American Pie" in which a high school student films himself having sex with an unsuspecting girl and broadcasts it over the Internet.

In addition, eight players were removed from the junior varsity lacrosse team for the remainder of the season, according to a written statement from the headmaster, Robert W. Hallett.

Letter writer Kyle Lagratta's response ("Lacrosse a victim of stereotyping," Feb. 29) to Susan Reimer 's column regarding the "unfounded argument" against the sport of lacrosse prompts me to respond. Our youngest son played organized lacrosse for several years before entering college. He was extremely fortunate to benefit from the guidance by an outstanding coach at a Division III school in the Northeast. We witnessed our son mature into a well-rounded adult by the time of his graduation due to the influence of a coach who emphasized leadership and teamwork.

When I began covering college women's lacrosse, Maryland owned the sport. The Terrapins were in the process of winning seven straight NCAA championships and I watched them win the last five, including a thrilling 14-13 overtime win against Georgetown in 2001. After that, the Terps fell off the pace. The sport grew and the talent pool spread all around the country. A new power rose at Northwestern and soon threatened to surpass the Terps' title streak. But in May, the Terps made sure that wouldn't happen.
