On the day before he was charged with first-degree murder, George Huguely V walked the fairways and greens of Charlottesville's exclusive Farmington Country Club, the Blue Ridge Mountains at his back. The University of Virginia men's lacrosse team, ranked best in the nation, had just won the last regular-season game of Huguely's senior year. The 22-year-old and some teammates had gathered at the club with their fathers to celebrate the storybook ending and to look forward to the NCAA tournament.

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)

Inside a converted warehouse in Pigtown, off limits to most company emplyees, designers and engineers dream up and test equipment for one of the nation's fastest growing sports. They follow in the foot steps of company founder Richard B.C. Tucker, a 1951 Johns Hopkins University graduate and lacrosse player, who revolutionized the lacrosse stick 42 years ago and forever changed the sport. Today, Baltimore-based STX LLC claims the biggest share of the U.S. lacrosse equipment market, even though it never has made products such as helmets and footwear.

Annie Igler scored her game-high fifth goal for No. 8 Severn girls lacrosse to break a 7-7 tie with 15 minutes left, but host No. 9 Bryn Mawr answered three minutes later. Fortunately for the Admirals (8-4, 6-4 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference), the goal was disallowed because of an illegal stick. Meredith Brown made her ninth and final save with two seconds left and Severn hung on to win, 8-7, in a downpour Tuesday. The Mawrtians fell to 6-4, 6-3. The biggest lead of the game came in the second half, when Severn was up 6-4.

As McDonogh's girls lacrosse winning streak ballooned toward a record-tying 103 games, the top programs along the East Coast wanted a crack at ending the Eagles' run. Coach Chris Robinson gave as many of them a shot as possible. For the third straight year, the Eagles opened their season at Vero Beach, Fla., beating three nationally-ranked teams - including Vero Beach, which was ranked second behind the Eagles in one national preseason poll. Then, the Eagles came home to go after their sixth straight title in what is widely considered the toughest conference in the country, the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

After graduating from Walkersville High School in Frederick County and enrolling at Loyola, Brian Schultz did not have any preconceived notions about his status or playing time. “I came from a small school, and I didn't have too many expectations,” he recalled. “I didn't think I was going to be an immediate impact player, and I knew that coming into Loyola. I knew it was an opportunity to play at the highest level, and that was what I wanted.” Schultz, however, has shed those reservations in an emphatic way. In his first year as a starting attackman, Schultz ranks second on the top-ranked Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the Patriot League)

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

During a 7-0 opening stretch, Maryland averaged 13.1 goals per game. Since then, the Terps are 2-2 and have scored 10.5 goals per game - a number that would drop to 7.7 if a 19-6 thumping of Robert Morris on April 2 was left out of the equation. The sudden power outage is eerily similar to last year's progression, as that squad scored at least 10 goals in its first six games before failing to reach the double-digit mark in six of the last eight. But coach John Tillman did not sound alarmed about the offense's inability to find success against No. 7 North Carolina (eight goals in a three-goal loss)

The conference realignment that swept through college football has reached college lacrosse, and has generated optimism and concerns among those involved in the sport. Those changes have already manifested for the upcoming 2014 season. For one, the NCAA tournament will grow to 18 teams because the number of automatic qualifiers has increased. And at least one "super conference" has been created. Syracuse and Notre Dame have moved to the Atlantic Coast Conference, joining Maryland, Duke, North Carolina and Virginia.

Loyola reaped the fruits of Saturday's 15-6 victory over Patriot League foe Boston University, earning the conference regular-season title and the top seed in the upcoming league tournament. And nothing will change regardless of the outcome of Thursday's game against Bucknell at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore at 7 p.m. But the No. 1 Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the league) want to finish out the conference schedule with a perfect record. “There are goals we set forth at the beginning of the year to accomplish,” coach Charley Toomey said on Tuesday afternoon.

Jack Gannon's development as UMBC's primary playmaker shouldn't be too surprising considering his roots as a point guard in basketball. The sophomore midfielder leads the Retrievers (6-5 overall and 2-1 in the America East) in assists with 18 and ranks second in points with 35 and credits his evolution as a player to his days running the varsity basketball team at Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y. “When I played basketball growing up, I was a point guard. So I was always looking to feed and that translated into lacrosse,” Gannon said Monday.
