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.

Maryland men's lacrosse head coach John Tillman confirmed Friday that Navy offensive coordinator J.L. Reppert has agreed to take the same position with the Terps. “I'm excited to have a guy like J.L. come to our program,” Tillman said. “Because of the type of leader and mentor and coach he is, to work with our young people is going to be great for our program. He's a guy that I feel very comfortable with. I've known him for almost 20 years. So there's a lot of comfort in terms of knowing what he's all about, his knowledge of the game, our ability to work well together.

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.

Et cetera Maryland men's lacrosse attackman Benjamin Chisolm was cleared in a Virginia sexual assault case Thursday after being accused of molesting a woman at a concert, Chisolm's lawyer said. Prosecutors dropped the felony sex assault charge against Chisolm and a judge cleared him of assault after a brief bench trial, according to the attorney. But Chisolm was found guilty of being drunk in public and received a fine and community service. Chisolm and the woman were at a Zac Brown Band concert at the Jiffy Lube Live venue in June and she had fallen asleep.

A University of Maryland lacrosse player was cleared in a Virginia sexual assault case Thursday after being accused of molesting a woman at a concert, his lawyer said. Prosecutors dropped a felony sex assault charge against Benjamin Chisolm and a judge cleared him of assault after a brief bench trial, according to the attorney. But Chisolm was found guilty of being drunk in public and received a fine and community service. "Ben Chisolm was never guilty of a sexual assault, he wasn't guilty of assault and that's the end of it," said the attorney, Edward B. MacMahon, Jr. The Prince William's County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office did not respond to a request for comment.

The NCAA rules committee's decision on Thursday not to recommend a shot clock for the 2015 season drew a mixed reaction from a pair of area Division I men's lacrosse coaches. A shot clock had been a heavily debated topic as players, coaches and fans bemoaned the slower pace of play associated with a game that has been called "the fastest sport on two feet. " But the committee, which met Tuesday through Thursday in Indianapolis, instead suggested by next spring the installation of a visible shot clock for the 30-second warning issued when officials rule that an offense is stalling and not making a concerted effort to attack the net. "I'm surprised because I did think there had been enough conversation and a lot of proponents for the shot clock," Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala said.

She was buried in a small pink coffin. But before the casket closed Friday, mourners gathered at the Israel Baptist Church in East Baltimore to say goodbye to 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose hair, as in many of the pictures of her that flashed on the church's large screen, was in braids with little white bows. The toddler was struck by a stray bullet outside her home in Waverly a week before. Two others were also injured in the shooting. Police sources said Friday that a person of interest turned himself in for questioning in the shooting, though no charges have been filed.

The No. 1 topic in men's college lacrosse this offseason is whether the NCAA will trade its "timer on" rule for a true shot clock. Three men with local ties -- North Carolina coach  Joe Breschi (Loyola High), Delaware coach Bob Shillinglaw (Severna Park) and Mount St. Mary's associate athletic director Mike Hardisky  (Towson State) -- will be part of the nine-member NCAA rules committee that will decide whether to make that change, along with several other possible tweaks.
