The recent deaths of three U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen have cast a pall over the institution in Annapolis. So perhaps it's not a surprise that those tragedies have affected the men's lacrosse team. In February, senior Max Allen was found dead in his vehicle after crashing into a creek on academy grounds. On March 25, freshman slotback Will McKamey died of brain swelling and bleeding after collapsing during a football practice. And on Saturday, sophomore Hans Loewen died after slipping into a coma after a skateboarding accident.

Navy junior long-stick midfielder Pat Kiernan has been named to the All-Patriot League men's lacrosse first team, the conference announced Tuesday. Kiernan's 26 caused turnovers this spring are the third-most by a player in Navy program history, while he is the school's all-time leader in the category with 51. This is the second straight year Kiernan has garnered All-Patriot League honors; he received second-team recognition as a sophomore. Named second-team all-league were Bucknell senior faceoff specialist Ryan Gutowski (Calvert Hall)

Navy is averaging 10.7 goals through the first three games, but the team has scored just 14 goals in back-to-back losses to Georgetown and Bucknell. Part of the problem is the lack of extra-man opportunities. The Midshipmen have been awarded just four man-up chances, which is the fewest among any Division I team that has played at least three contests in 2014. On the flip side, Navy has had to kill 11 man-down situations. The curiously low number of extra-man opportunities has coach Rick Sowell feeling, well, curious.

Pat Kiernan, Navy's do-it-all long-stick midfielder, plays wing on faceoffs and is a threat to score in transition. He acknowledged, however, that there is one area of his game that needs work: his voice. "I would definitely say that I've tried to be a lot more vocal and loud on the field," the junior said. "I'd actually consider that to be one of my biggest weaknesses. I'm always trying to stay vocal and stay loud, and I know the coaches are getting on me about that a lot. That's definitely something I need to improve on. " Kiernan leads the Midshipmen (3-5 overall, 1-2 Patriot League)

There are rebuilding jobs at other colleges and universities throughout the country, and then there is trying to turnaround a program at one of the nation's service academies. Few know the difficulties involved with that better than Navy lacrosse coach Rick Sowell. As an assistant, he helped turn around the program at Georgetown, and then did the same as coach at St. John's, Dartmouth and Stony Brook. And if you can win at Dartmouth, you can win anywhere - but maybe not as quickly at Navy.

Division I men's lacrosse Navy's Kiernan earns Patriot League honor Navy junior long-stick midfielder Pat Kiernan received Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week honors Monday, two days after helping lead the Midshipmen to a 20-7 season-opening victory over VMI. Kiernan anchored a defensive effort that held the Keydets to just one goal over the first 30 minutes as Navy jumped out to an 11-1 lead at the half. The Midshipmen held the Keydets off the scoreboard for the first 14 minutes of the game and then over a 23-minute span that stretched across the first three quarters.

Here is the opening installment of a series that checks in with the seven Division I programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. So Tuesday begins with a visit with Navy.

The Tewaaraton Foundation announced the men's watch list for its annual award Thursday night . It's a large group, but there were a few players absent from the list that stood out to me. Locally, I was surprised that Loyola junior attackman Nikko Pontrello was missing. He leads Division I in goals with 15 and is tied with Duke senior attackman Jordan Wolf for the national lead in points with 19. UMBC could have had a couple candidates in senior attackman Matt Gregoire and sophomore midfielder Pat Young.
