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)

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...

Mount Saint Joseph's football team doesn't need a lot of time to score points. With Nevone McCrimmon in the backfield and Jimmy Moore, Jake Dahl, Calvin Montgomery, Nick Phelps, J.T. Uhler and Kyle Offerman up front, the No. 4 Gaels had no trouble getting off to a quick start at Loyola Blakefield on Saturday. On the Gaels' first play from scrimmage, McCrimmon raced 79 yards for the first of his four touchdowns. On the third play of the next drive, the senior running back scored from 24 yards out. In less than seven minutes, Mount Saint Joseph was well on its way to a 42-19 victory in the first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game for both teams.

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.

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.

After a string of five losing seasons, Mount Saint Joseph's football players resolved during the offseason to create a new identity for their Gaels program this fall - one that would bring winning back. Their work ethic combined with a more experienced team and schematic changes on both sides of the ball have the Gaels off to a 4-0 start - their best opening since 1995. "Based on the fact that we've doubled our wins from last season, team morale is definitely at an all-time high," senior lineman Jimmy Moore said, "and getting a couple wins at Bullis and Dover (Del.)

One of the reasons Seth Walker wanted to come to Calvert Hall was because of the school's spirited rivalry with Loyola Blakefield. Walker, who was home-schooled last year, not only got his first opportunity to play against the Dons on Wednesday, he also scored one of the biggest goals in the No. 7 Cardinals' young season. The sophomore got the game-winner in No. 7 Calvert Hall's 1-0 victory over No. 3 Loyola in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference matchup.

The McDonogh boys soccer team finds itself in a familiar spot, ranked No. 1 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 preseason poll.

Jon Cole knew who he wanted to serve as his best man. The former McDonogh and Virginia soccer star, now 33, had high school pals and college teammates who floated in and out of his life, but one guy was constant. His high school coach, Steve Nichols, went from mentor to father figure to big brother to best friend over 20 years. At the time, two summers ago, Nichols joked at Cole's request: "I'm 43 years old, why me?" Cole never thought twice. "He's like the brother I never had," said Cole, who married in June 2012.
