When is The Sun going to give the Loyola lacrosse team its due? The Greyhounds remain undefeated this season, yet The Sun concentrates on the Hopkins Blue Jays. The Blue Jays are given front-page coverage for their loss to Navy, while Loyola's win and undefeated record are relegated to 11 lines on Page 6. I guess that Loyola will be the front-page story next week whether they win or lose - but only because they are playing the Blue Jays. Mark Zivkovich

History tells us the first documented version of lacrosse was played by native tribes inhabiting North America in the 1630s. Legend says the rules of the ancient sport were devised to help sharpen the focus, dexterity and courage of young warriors. Needless to say, much has changed over the past four centuries with a sport whose popularity seems to grow each year, especially in the wealthier suburbs where kids play it and parents watch it. But it was certainly intuition and opportunity that led the Mohegan Sun's Tribal Gaming Authority to pursue the sport's indoor professional league as a tenant for its arena, home of concerts and basketball games.

Johns Hopkins' women's lacrosse team executed the perfect strategy Saturday against No. 4 Florida, slowing the pace and keeping the speedy Gators from turning the game into a track meet. Unfortunately for the No. 18 Blue Jays, a handful of untimely mistakes doomed the potential upset. The Blue Jays battled the Gators to double overtime, but Nora Barry scored the game winner on a free position 58 seconds into sudden death for a 13-12 Florida victory in an American Lacrosse Conference game at Homewood Field.

Navy's freshmen attackmen combined for eight goals and four assists in the team's 14-8 victory over the Virginia Military Institute last Saturday. Coach Richie Meade is emphatic in his belief that his group of first-year players can match that production for the remainder of the season. "The expectation here is what it is," Meade said. "Everybody has to stop saying they're freshmen. They're Navy lacrosse players, and we've got a team, and we expect to win. That's really the way it is. Those are the guys we're putting on the field, and our expectation is that they're going to keep getting better, they're going to keep working hard.

A 12-6 loss to Salisbury in a Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinal on April 26 closed out the 2014 campaign for Frostburg State. It also signaled the end for the program's first recruiting class. Seventeen seniors graduated as the first group that committed to coach Tommy Pearce and the Bobcats, which fielded a varsity squad in 2011. That class absorbed records of 6-11 and 2-15 in its first two years before enjoying marks of 11-6 in 2013 and 13-5 in 2014. Pearce acknowledged that Senior Day, when the team walloped CAC rival St. Mary's, 17-10, on April 19, was not easy for him. “It was emotional,” he said.

It's over. The Hereford boys lacrosse team  had its string of six straight Class 3A-2A state titles end on Wednesday night  when a talented Kent Island team earned an 8-6 win in the title game. The Bulls had been 9-for-9 in state title games before the loss, and their six straight titles and nine overall are state records. While last night was the time to report about Hereford's loss and how it came about -- the Buccaneers from Queen Anne's County had the answers and were the better team, albeit slightly -- now is the time to applaud the Bulls for their astonishing run. Prior to last night, the last time they lost a playoff game was in 2007, when Baltimore County rival Catonsville came away with an 8-7 win in the North regional semifinals.    Every year, the level of play from opponents increases and the Bulls had a bigger and bigger target on their back as the state titles piled up.  And every year, the Bulls managed to stay a step ahead of the competition.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
Commentary is absolutely in order on last week's decision by the powers that be in the management of the high school athletics programs in Harford and Cecil counties to do away with the upper vs. lower division so-called title games. But what to say? One possibility: It's about time. After all, had the practice been done away with after the first season or two of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, maybe the odd custom could have been chalked up to a paperwork mistake in devising the league.

When reigning Division III national champion Stevenson faces Commonwealth Conference rival Widener at Mustang Stadium on Wednesday, neither team will have to go out of their way to get familiar. The Mustangs swept the Pride in two games last season, but Stevenson needed a goal from then-junior attackman Chris Dashiell with nine seconds remaining in regulation to emerge with a 9-8 victory over Widener in last year's league tournament final May 4. Mustangs coach Paul Cantabene said the memory of that tight matchup has not totally dissipated.

Jim Cusick is the kind of lacrosse success story we seldom hear about. A senior at Washington College and captain of the lacrosse team, Cusick played high school lacrosse at Calvert Hall and very seldom got on the field. He wasn't a bad player, just a late bloomer at one of the country's best high schools for lacrosse. Cusick never complained about his lack of playing time at Calvert Hall, but just kept practicing and getting better and better. One of the advantages of playing in the private school system is that even though you may not get to play much, you still get better because you're practicing against the best every day. Cusick has become one of Division III's top players.

There were some verbal whacks after the game, too.
