Here's what I hope happens: Years from now, Ryan Boyle, the great lacrosse player, looks back on a stellar career in his chosen sport - from Gilman to Princeton to professional teams in New York and Philadelphia - and he declares the Baltimore Youth Lacrosse League his most important accomplishment. I hope the league is a success and that it lasts forever. Except for a clinic the league held on a rainy, muddy Saturday in March in Patterson Park, not a single ball has been thrown yet, not a single shot taken on goal.

Duncan Slidell has been to less than half of his club team's lacrosse games, yet on the two occasions he showed up, his coach let him play -- no questions asked.The 1992 Severn School graduate has even skipped games after being too tired from working his eight-hour-a-day, five-days-a-week job.Slidell can moonlight to Vail, Colo. and win a championship trophy with another lacrosse team -- as he did three weeks ago to play with a select, county All-Star squad -- without worrying that his coach will make him run extra laps in practice upon his return.

It's a sport of elegance and rugged jostling, where gallop meets grit at the command of a netted stick. And sure as the daffodils now peek from the muddy ground, spring lacrosse has returned to the Baltimore area's recreational lots.Players ages 5 to 12 suited up for practice yesterday for the second week of the Towson youth lacrosse league's 2 1/2-month season. The league draws 550 boys and girls of the Baltimore area's 15,000 players for weekly games that will start soon.The popular sport -- a modern version of a game played by Native Americans -- is so ingrained in local culture that rosters fill up before New Year's Eve and waiting lists are common in some leagues.
