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.

MEN No. 1 Syracuse (6-0) at No. 17 Villanova (7-1) Saturday, 7 p.m. About Syracuse: The Orange and Notre Dame are the lone remaining unbeaten teams, but the former has been extended to overtime twice in the past three contests. 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)
