My child has been complaining of ankle and foot pain. I talked briefly with a friend who is a physical therapist. Could it be his shoes? It could be your child's shoes. But then, it could be something more serious. Kevin Crowley, a physical therapist and manager of Towson Sports Medicine Center, says any time a child is complaining of reoccurring pain, you should consult your physician. "As physical therapists," Crowley says, "we really can't diagnose patients. We help implement the treatment."

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.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Nearly eight years ago, Dom Starsia found out that his twin daughters were retarded. Two years later, one of his lacrosse players at Brown died in his sleep. Another Brown player was killed a year later after being struck by a car.Dom Starsia can't help but preach togetherness."After the second player died, I was pretty hollow. I didn't know what was going on," said Starsia, Virginia's first-year coach whose team will meet No. 6 Johns Hopkins today at Homewood Field.
