An early-season league win for the Boys' Latin lacrosse team normally doesn't call for the student section to rush onto the field to celebrate. But Saturday afternoon's victory against Loyola, the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion, was an exception. Possessing the ball for most of the second half, the No. 1 Lakers wore down the No. 4 Dons to break open a close game and claim an 11-8 win. On a picture-perfect day before an overflow crowd of more than 1,000 at Hargaden Field, Boys' Latin got two goals and three assists from Shack Stanwick, three goals from Colin Chell, strong work from Hunter Moreland on faceoffs and seven saves from goalie Jack Pezzula.

With Johns Hopkins moving to the Big Ten for the 2015 season, a schedule that the program could mold and shape will have certain limitations. For one, the Blue Jays must face conference opponents Maryland, Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, and must keep one weekend open in late April or early May for the league tournament. Other traditional rivalries are on the chopping block, but coach Dave Pietramala confirmed on Thursday that the school's annual showdown with Navy - which will unfold for the 88th time on Friday at 7 p.m. at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis - will be retained.

A day after Loyola's bid to secure a berth in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship was interrupted by lightning Tuesday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the No. 2 Dons finished the job with a 13-7 victory over No. 3 Gilman on Wednesday afternoon at the same site. Leading, 13-5, with 6:57 left in the fourth quarter when play was stopped on Tuesday, all Loyola (15-3) had to do was play keep-away against the inspired Greyhounds (12-4) to advance to the conference final against archrival No. 1 Calvert Hall (15-2)

Top-ranked Loyola Maryland's 13-5 thumping of Patriot League foe Bucknell on Thursday night had a deeper meaning considering who was among the announced 1,303 at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. Kids and parents from Newtown Youth Lacrosse were in attendance as part of a relationship started by sophomore long-stick midfielder Jason Crane (Chesapeake-AA) after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. The Greyhounds have traveled to Connecticut to participate in clinics and have hosted the youth league in Baltimore.

Six months after leading Loyola to the NCAA tournament, the memories of March Madness still linger in the mind of Dylon Cormier . There was the nonstop publicity in the days leading up to the Greyhounds' matchup with second-seeded Ohio State; the anticipation of waiting for the tip at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh; hearing his name announced and seeing it displayed on the jumbotron; and finally taking the floor as part of Loyola's first...

Loyola flexed its dynasty muscles again at the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship meet Saturday at McDonogh, claiming its 25th team title in the last 26 years. The Dons had the crown all but wrapped up after the morning phase of the day-long event, well before the final swims in the evening on the way to a decisive, 436-265 victory over runner-up McDonogh. Mount St. Joseph (147 points), Calvert Hall (145), Archbishop Spalding (85) and Gilman (74)

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

Loyola's women's lacrosse team hasn't gotten a single point from a senior this spring, but the Greyhounds don't need to. The younger generation is stepping up big time. In Saturday's 15-14 overtime win at then-No. 13 Georgetown, freshmen scored 10 goals, including Annie Thomas' game-winner. Three more came from sophomore Marlee Paton. Thomas, an All-Metro attacker at John Carroll last season, said the 11 Greyhounds freshmen have grown comfortable with their roles and their teammates.

For reasons not entirely clear to me, I've been to most of the Loyola basketball home games this season. The crowds understandably grew as the season went on, but that didn't stop me from getting a good vantage point and watching the team grow from last year's below-.500 record to this season's new heights. But for those of you who had better things to do than spend a dozen nights at Reitz Arena this winter, here's a primer of what you need to know about the Greyhounds, and what it will take for them to blow up America's collective bracket Thursday night against Ohio State.

Loyola men's basketball Guard Drummond chooses to transfer Loyola sophomore guard Justin Drummond has told the Greyhounds' coaching staff that will transfer, the school announced. Drummond, from Bowie, averaged 10.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in 33 games (four starts) for Loyola in 2011-12 and was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Sixth Player of the Year. The 6-foot-4, 187-pound All-MAAC third-team selection has not decided where he will transfer. "We would like to thank Justin for his contributions to the program," said coach Jimmy Patsos , whose Greyhounds won the MAAC tournament and played in their first NCAA tournament since 1994.

A little pre-game adjustment helped Brian Schultz enjoy a career performance. The senior attackman set a career high with six goals on 10 shots and added an assist to propel the top-ranked Loyola men's lacrosse team to a 13-5 rout of Patriot League foe Bucknell before an announced 1,303 at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore on Thursday night. The win did not mean much to the Greyhounds (12-1 overall and 8-0 in the conference) with regards to the conference's regular-season title, as they had already clinched that crown with Saturday's 15-6 victory over Boston University.

Loyola Maryland has won all three games in this series, but the two sides will meet for the first time as Patriot League foes and for the first time since 1983. The Greyhounds are 5-0 at home this season, which does not bode well for a Bucknell team that is just 1-5 on the road. The Bison (7-6 overall and 4-3 in the conference) have won two consecutive games against Mount St. Mary's and Lafayette after losing to No. 11 Army and Fairfield. Their offense sits in the bottom third of Division I at 9.1 goals per game, but the unit does boast a pair of individual standouts.

Paige Hanson , a senior attacker on the national champion North Carolina lacrosse team, was honored earlier this month as one of the NCAA's Elite 89 Award winners with a trip to the NCAA men's basketball Final Four and a Bruce Springsteen concert. The Elite 89 Awards recognize the one player at the final four in each of the NCAA's 89 sports with the highest cumulative GPA. Hanson, a Bryn Mawr graduate majoring in journalism and mass communications, had the stellar GPA among all the players in last season's semifinals.

After graduating from Walkersville High School in Frederick County and enrolling at Loyola, Brian Schultz did not have any preconceived notions about his status or playing time. “I came from a small school, and I didn't have too many expectations,” he recalled. “I didn't think I was going to be an immediate impact player, and I knew that coming into Loyola. I knew it was an opportunity to play at the highest level, and that was what I wanted.” Schultz, however, has shed those reservations in an emphatic way. In his first year as a starting attackman, Schultz ranks second on the top-ranked Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the Patriot League)

Loyola reaped the fruits of Saturday's 15-6 victory over Patriot League foe Boston University, earning the conference regular-season title and the top seed in the upcoming league tournament. And nothing will change regardless of the outcome of Thursday's game against Bucknell at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore at 7 p.m. But the No. 1 Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the league) want to finish out the conference schedule with a perfect record. “There are goals we set forth at the beginning of the year to accomplish,” coach Charley Toomey said on Tuesday afternoon.

Loyola attackman Eric Lusby is on pace for a career year, and he may just have a season-ending knee injury to thank for his surge. The fifth-year senior tore the anterior cruciate ligament and the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in an NCAA Tournament first-round loss to Cornell in 2010 and a slower-than-expected healing process forced him to abandon last season. This spring, he has paired with junior attackman Mike Sawyer to spark the No. 8 Greyhounds to their first 7-0 start since 2002, and the Severna Park native and graduate is enjoying every minute of it. “I think it was a tremendous help, taking a step back, taking a year off and not playing,” Lusby said of redshirting 2011.

Towson is clinging to a 27-26 lead in this cross-town rivalry, but Loyola has won the last four meetings. The No. 17 Greyhounds are flying high after bouncing then-No. 16 Delaware, 13-8, in their season opener a week ago. The Tigers (1-1) are trying to rebound from a 12-6 loss to then-No. 4 Johns Hopkins eight days ago. Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore on Saturday. 1) Getting more production from Loyola's midfield.

Boston University arrived at Ridley Athletic Complex on Saturday with 30 freshmen on its roster and up against its third consecutive ranked opponent. It was a tall order for any team, much less one in its first season in Division I. The Terriers then shocked the announced 1,004 in attendance when Mount St. Mary's transfer Alex Paroda scored less than a minute into the game. But an 8-1 run spanning the first and second halves sent No. 1 Loyola Maryland on its way to a 15-6 win and the Patriot League regular-season championship.  Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey said the Terriers played his team tougher than the vast majority of the first-year programs he has faced in his nine seasons at Loyola.

Loyola University Maryland has laid off 15 staff members and its president said Friday that the college had reached a "critical moment" where large tuition increases could no longer be sustained. The 15 layoffs did not include any faculty members, and Loyola spokesman Nick Alexopulos declined to elaborate on what types of staff and administrative positions were cut. In addition, 22 vacant positions were eliminated. "Higher education institutions throughout the U.S. are facing an uncertain future," Loyola President Rev. Brian F. Linnane wrote in an email to the campus community.
