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...

In May, Loyola Maryland's Joe Fletcher received the William C. Schmeisser Award as the nation's top defender. Now he has the hardware to show he brought that same intensity and dedication to the classroom, too. Fletcher was named the Patriot League Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, an award voted on by conference member schools that honors the top performer in the classroom and in competition. Scholar-Athletes of the Year in their respective sports are eligible for the overall honor.

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 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.

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.

Loyola Maryland assistant coach David Metzbower will join North Carolina's lacrosse coaching staff as the offensive coordinator, multiple sources have told Inside Lacrosse. Metzbower will replace Pat Myers, the Tar Heels' former offensive coach and recruiting coordinator, who was let go in May and has since been hired at Penn. Metzbower joins the staff of fellow Loyola High alumnus Joe Breschi, a Baltimore native, after spending the 2013 and 2014 seasons at Loyola, where he took over for Dan Chemotti in the wake of the Greyhounds' national championship campaign in 2012.

It was a tumultuous spring off the field for the NCAA, and the effect could change college lacrosse in substantial ways. The consensus to this point, however, is that there's still so much to be determined that it's impossible to project how lacrosse fans should ready themselves for the future. How this future looks could hinge on the development of two major storylines that might reshape college athletics: In late March, a National Labor Relations Board regional director decided that members of the Northwestern football team were, based on the nature of their work (playing a sport)

Johns Hopkins and Loyola have put their annual men's lacrosse rivalry on hold for the 2015 season. Unable to find a Saturday date suitable for both sides, the Charles Street rivals agreed to take a break next season and resume their annual series in February 2016 at Ridley Athletic Complex. With the Blue Jays moving to the Big Ten for 2015 and the Greyhounds playing in the Patriot League this past spring, Loyola coach Charley Toomey said he and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala were intent on keeping the game on a Saturday rather than participating in a midweek contest during their conference schedules.

Turnover in the midfield is bad, and Loyola Maryland is finding that out this offseason. The Greyhounds, an aggressive team that has thrived when its short-stick defensive midfielders can run and turn defense into offense, are losing two starting short-stick defensive midfielders to graduation. Pat Laconi led all non-long-pole players in caused turnovers with 34, scooped up 31 ground balls and recorded 11 goals and three assists. His linemate, Kyle Duffy, wasn't as prolific in manufacturing points (1 G, 2 A)

Deemer Class was at M&T Bank Stadium in 2010 when Duke beat Notre Dame, 6-5, in overtime to capture the first men's lacrosse national title in school history. Now he'll have a chance to win his own championship at the stadium where he grew up watching the Ravens. While the prospect of a second consecutive title - and the program's third in five years - is exhilarating in itself, Class has extra motivation for Duke's 1 p.m. semifinal matchup against Denver on Saturday. He'll get to return to home and play in front of a large contingent of friends and family.

At the news conference trumpeting his hiring today, Jim Paquette did all the right things. The new Loyola athletics director kissed his wife, shook his predecessor's hand, donned a green cap and embraced the school's mascot, a 6-foot Greyhound who ambled up to the podium to greet his new boss. If the 39-year-old Paquette -- who looks young enough to suit up for Loyola -- was overwhelmed, he didn't show it. After all, this is a man who helped raise more than $200 million for Boston College athletics through the years.

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.

Visiting Loyola Maryland fell in the second round of the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament on Sunday, 8-3, after seventh-seeded Boston College strung together runs and stifled the Greyhounds' offense. Attacker Katie Rich scored the Eagles' first goal 52 seconds into the game, and Loyola (15-6) midfielder Sydney Thomas evened the score soon after. But then the Boston College trio of attacker Covie Stanwick (Notre Dame Prep) and midfielders Sarah Mannelly and Mikaela Rix combined for four goals over 15 minutes.
