The way Mount Hebron coach Chris Robinson saw it, visiting Bryn Mawr played a zone defense in yesterday's game. It was a logical conclusion given the way the Mawrtians brought all their players back on defense.But Bryn Mawr coach Anne Townsend-Kessenich said it never happened."We weren't playing a zone. We don't even know how to play zone," said Townsend-Kessenich.Zone or no zone, it didn't matter. The No. 9 Vikings got three goals from Kelly Dodson and two each from Rachael Karfonta, Chrissy Lombard and Kyle Rutkowski and defeated the Mawrtians, 14-9.

No. 2 Archbishop Spalding put plenty of shots on goal, but Bryn Mawr's field hockey defense, especially goalie Quincy Johnson, denied them again and again. But eventually the Cavaliers got one past Johnson in the second half. Kyler Greenwalt scored the game-winner on a feed from Emily Cooper with six minutes left in the game to lift the host Cavaliers (8-1) to a 1-0 win over the Mawrtians (3-4) on Tuesday. Greenwalt was at the top of the circle when she received the pass, dribbled in, faked and found the top right corner.

Annie Igler scored her game-high fifth goal for No. 8 Severn girls lacrosse to break a 7-7 tie with 15 minutes left, but host No. 9 Bryn Mawr answered three minutes later. Fortunately for the Admirals (8-4, 6-4 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference), the goal was disallowed because of an illegal stick. Meredith Brown made her ninth and final save with two seconds left and Severn hung on to win, 8-7, in a downpour Tuesday. The Mawrtians fell to 6-4, 6-3.

Teenager Kendall Reitz set out to become an advocate for improved mental illness awareness in the aftermath of last year's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., when a disturbed 20-year-old named Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and six adults. As horrific as the crime was, Kendall felt news coverage of that mass shooting and others fed false notions that people with mental illness tend to be violent. "It's just way blown out of proportion," she said.

Despite their winning record, the Bryn Mawr girls have struggled much of this season to put together a full 50 minutes of solid lacrosse. That changed Tuesday at Maryvale. The No. 6 Mawrtians won most of the draws, worked a patient settled offense and play stifling defense to take a 10-5 victory over the No. 4 Lions in a critical Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game. "We definitely wanted this win - and a little revenge too for last year," Mawrtians senior Kate Snouffer said, referencing her team's loss to Maryvale in the A Conference semifinals last season.
