In a city steeped in the lore of the game, the Doyles are greenhorns, a first-generation lacrosse family. But the Towson brood is catching up fast. Four Doyle siblings have earned college lacrosse scholarships, and two - Jack and Conor - were named All-Metro Player of the Year at Gilman. Both now play for No. 9 Notre Dame (6-4), which hosts No. 6 Maryland (9-2) on Saturday. Egging them on in the stands will be their sister Caroline, a star at Notre Dame Prep who'll join her brothers in South Bend, Ind., next year; brother Casey, a seventh-grader at Gilman who also plays lacrosse; and parents Kevin and Grace Doyle, neither one of whom acknowledged the game until their kids did. "To us, lacrosse was always just another sport," Grace Doyle said.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks hosted three other Major League Lacrosse teams at a scrimmage day Saturday at Severn. The Charlotte Hounds, Denver Outlaws and Florida Launch traveled to the Severna Park private school for one last test before next weekend's season openers. Each team played two three-quarter games. Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle had mixed feelings after watching the Bayhawks defeat Florida, 11-5, and lose to Denver, 8-5. "Right now, I think we are an average team. I didn't see anything out there today that made me think we're a good team at this point, but we'll keep working to get there," Cottle said.

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.

For the second straight year, Frostburg State finished fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference, earning for the program the right to play host to a league tournament quarterfinal. Last spring, the fourth-seeded Bobcats fell, 11-6, to No. 5 seed Mary Washington. Coach Tommy Pearce is hoping for a vastly different result when St. Mary's visits on Wednesday. “It's a great achievement,” Pearce said of hosting a conference tournament game. “We did have that happen last year, and last year, we beat Mary Washington and then they came back up that following Wednesday and beat us. So we know it's really hard to beat a team twice and St. Mary's is a good team.

With Johns Hopkins moving to the Big Ten for the 2015 season, a schedule that the program could mold and shape will have certain limitations. For one, the Blue Jays must face conference opponents Maryland, Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, and must keep one weekend open in late April or early May for the league tournament. Other traditional rivalries are on the chopping block, but coach Dave Pietramala confirmed on Thursday that the school's annual showdown with Navy - which will unfold for the 88th time on Friday at 7 p.m. at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis - will be retained.

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.

Senior defenseman John Lade, who held Johns Hopkins senior attackman Chris Boland scoreless on 0-for-3 shooting and forced five turnovers last Saturday, might draw Wildcats junior attackman Kevin Cunningham (20 goals, 13 assists)

No suspense remains for Navy's hopes of qualifying for its first NCAA tournament since 2009. The team must win three games in the Patriot League tournament, beginning with Tuesday's quarterfinal at Lehigh. With a 4-8 record, the Midshipmen have no shot at an at-large bid, but coach Rick Sowell insisted that there is no talk about anything beyond Tuesday's game. “Right now, it's Lehigh,” he said Monday afternoon. “You win, you advance. You lose, you go home. At this point, any conversation about winning three games, that just hasn't come up. That's not our focus at this point in time.

Salisbury's 11-9 win over Stevenson on Saturday offered a little clarity into its postseason picture. If the No. 3 Sea Gulls (16-1) can close out the regular season with no losses and a Capital Athletic Conference tournament championship, they likely will be the top seed in the South Region of the Division III tournament. “Stevenson-Salisbury is always a big game to win,” senior attackman Luke Phipps (John Carroll) said. “We lost two [meetings] last year, so that was disappointing.

Disciplinary action for three other students has been delayed pending investigation, he said.
