The bittersweet lilt of a clarinet ushered a stream of students and teachers into the Woodlawn High School gymnasium. Here, in the roll-out bleachers that are "Warrior Country," scores of somber teen-agers gathered yesterday to reflect upon the life and death of one of their own.They hung their heads, then smiled. They gazed mournfully into the distance, then laughed. Finally, they clapped their hands -- a round of applause for the friend with the unforgettable smile.They came together to remember Hae Min Lee, 18, a senior whose body was found Feb. 9 in a shallow grave in Leakin Park.

At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me. I feel as though I've still got plenty of gas in the tank.

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.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as fall ball gets underway: Fall ball is evaluation time for coaches.

Major League Lacrosse is planning on starting the 2015 season earlier than in the past, with April 11 as the proposed start date, two weeks earlier than the 2014 season began. The final regular-season game in the National Lacrosse League is set for May 2, meaning there will be more overlap between MLL and NLL seasons if MLL starts earlier. The MLL also is experimenting with ways to make the ball more visible on TV, including changing the color or adding a stripe, after trying a smooth, orange ball last season.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules changes in men's lacrosse Wednesday regarding stalling rules and faceoff tactics. Starting in 2015, a visible clock can be used to time the 30-second stalling segment in facilities capable of displaying the clocks. Division I men's lacrosse programs will be required to have the clocks displayed by 2016, and Division II and Division III will be required to have visible clocks by 2017. The panel also supported the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Rules Committee recommendation that two clocks be used, one at each end of the field.
