If the NCAA proceeds with proposed rule changes setting new guidelines for lacrosse sticks, you might see fewer flashy moves in traffic and more ground balls, but possibly also better passing. Citing concerns that the ball no longer dislodges often enough from a player's stick upon contact, the sport's rules committee has recommended that lacrosse sticks return to a design that is bigger, more triangular, and more traditional in shape. The recommendations - which must be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel before they become official, and would not be enforced until 2009 - were made public yesterday after being recommended last month.

STX LLC has become an official equipment supplier to the US Lacrosse Women's National Team, the Baltimore-based company said Tuesday. STX, maker of lacrosse, hockey and golf equipment, signed a agreement to supply the team with sticks, heads, goggles, gloves and bags through 2017 and to sponsor team events, including the 2017 FIL Women's World Cup in Surrey, England. STX said it will also supply the U.S. Women's National Under-19 team. Team USA athletes Alyssa Murray, Sloane Serpe and Taylor D'Amore, who all recently signed with STX, will train and compete with STX equipment on Team USA. "With three First Team All-Americans already representing STX on the global stage, this new sponsorship will put STX equipment front and center with the women playing the game at the highest level," Kadie Stamper, women's lacrosse brand manager, said in the announcement.

Perry Hall's varsity and JV girls lacrosse teams will wear red this Friday as they raise funds for the American Heart Association and honor Breanna Sudano, a Gators field hockey player who collapsed during a JV game in September. Sudano's life was saved through CPR at the field, then an operation at Maryland Children's Hospital by Dr. Sunjay Kaushal after she was diagnosed with anomalous coronary artery disease -- a condition she was born with but didn't know she had. From a news release sent out Wednesday: On Friday, starting at 5 p.m., the JV and varsity lacrosse teams at Perry Hall will honor Breanna with a "Red Out" game where they will all wear red in her honor. The girls play a fundraiser game every year.

Winter is synonymous with snow, Christmas and … lacrosse? This year, perhaps more than any other, the coldest season and a sport which crowns a national champion on usually the hottest day in May have been linked arm-in-arm. Since Feb. 1, when Delaware hosted High Point and Lehigh traveled to Furman, the first two weeks of the regular season have been highlighted - or lowlighted depending on your point of view - by frigid temperatures, blustery winds and other adverse conditions.

Baltimore-based sporting goods manufacturer STX has signed a three-year agreement to become the supplier of both the men's and women's NCAA Championships events. Under the agreement, STX will provide balls and nets for the event. It will also supply equipment used in interactive displays around the stadium, and will bring athletes sponsored by the company -- including Baltimore native Kyle Harrison -- to meet with fans and the media. "It's a complicated agreement, but really one of the goals is the help grow the awareness of the sport and ensure everyone involved has a positive experience," said STX director of marketing Ed Saunders.

Last fall, as Perry Hall's junior varsity field hockey team played at Catonsville High, Gator freshman Breanna Sudano suddenly collapsed in cardiac arrest with 30 seconds left in a 2-1 victory. Sudano, who had scored both goals, lay motionless on the turf as as CPR was administered by parents and coaches. Friday night, fans attending the girls lacrosse double-header between the host Gators and Joppatowne wore smiles of relief, and players chanted "We want Bre,"as Sudano was proclaimed an honorary captain for the team.

Talbot County residents are no doubt sleeping easier after the school system used a policy of zero tolerance for deadly weapons to crack down on two high school lacrosse players who were caught with a small penknife and a lighter used to repair their sticks. However, we feel it important to warn them that they still may not be safe. After all, we hear that the baseball and softball players bring dozens of long, aluminum clubs with them to games and practices. For that matter, children as young as kindergarten routinely carry sharp, wooden sticks, and there are even special machines in virtually every classroom to hone these "pencils" to murderous points.

Two Easton High School lacrosse players should not have been suspended or arrested for having a penknife and lighter in their lacrosse bags, according to the Maryland state school board, which ordered that the boys' records be wiped clean. In a legal opinion released Tuesday, the state school board said Talbot County school officials had failed to use "appropriate discretion" in disciplining the two lacrosse players, who said they carried the items to repair their lacrosse sticks. "I feel like a big weight is lifted off my shoulders," said Graham Dennis, 18, who a year ago was arrested as a juvenile, charged with possession of a deadly weapon, and suspended from school for 10 days.

The lacrosse sticks collectively fly high in the air and then the Hereford boys lacrosse players all merge into one large mass of celebration.  It's May at UMBC Stadium, and that means the Bulls have won yet another state championship.  The program has won seven all time, and the last three have come under the watchful eye of coach Brian King.  Talk about getting it done -- King has gone 57-3 in his three years as coach. After spending four years as an assistant coach working with the junior varsity, King took over a defending state championship team and tacked on three more crowns. He's never seen a season end on a low note and he does all he can to avoid it from happening.

Wells and Covie Stanwick were practically born with lacrosse sticks in their hands. By the time they could walk, they were trying to emulate their older siblings Sheehan, Wick, Coco, Tad and Steele, who were beginning to lay the groundwork that would make the name Stanwick synonymous with Baltimore lacrosse. All five helped their high school teams win championships and went on to stellar college careers -- four as All-Americans who played in at least one Final Four. Wells, 19, and Covie, who turns 18 on Sunday, carry on that legacy.

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.

Ahmaad Simmons and Jamar Peete may not have known it at the time, but they had a lot in common. Both grew up in Baltimore and had dreamed of playing football at the college level. Both were natural athletes who were handed lacrosse sticks early in high school because of their God-given ability. A few years into their lacrosse careers, both had the idea of popularizing the sport among inner city youth. But the cross-town high school rivals, Simmons of Baltimore City College and Peete of Walbrook, never got along.
