*TC Just the thought of helmets flames the sensitivity of those involved in women's lacrosse."This is a women's game, and we resent men coming in and giving opinions on our game. It's not the same game," said Cathy Samaras of Annapolis, who is president of the Chesapeake Women's Lacrosse Association."Ours is a non-contact sport."The crux of the matter is that the women are adamantly opposed to helmets because they feel it would increase aggression and turn it into a contact sport like the boys.

Casper Norriss wasn't about to pass up his big moment in the spotlight. So when the 33-year-old who plays in the Davidsonville Athletic Association's adaptive lacrosse program for players with intellectual and physical disabilities saw his opportunity, he took it. Running free on a fast break, Norriss eschewed the easy score for a behind-the-back trick shot, a difficult move even for the most experienced of players. "I've tried it twice in the last two years, and shot it wide," Norriss said.

After leading the Knights to two state soccer titles and what they hope will be a state lacrosse title next week, Kasper and Schwarzmann will go their separate ways in the fall. Kasper will play lacrosse at Maryland; Schwarzmann will play lacrosse at Johns Hopkins.

Senior field hockey attackman Meagan Linkous is called a "spitfire" by North Harford coach Lori Mitchell because of the three-year starter's physical style of play. Linkous is a tri-captain this season and was the leading scorer on the team last year. She is also a high-scoring midfielder on the school's lacrosse team. Do you ever dream about winning the county championship? Yes, I do. I really want to win the county or the regionals. I think we just need to come together as a team and everyone needs to want it really bad. We have the potential.

Jen Schmidt doesn't show the pain. When the Friends School girls lacrosse team attacks, she flashes for the ball, going as hard and pivoting as quickly as anyone on the field. All the while, her feet and hands hurt, and sometimes her neck and back don't feel so good either. Six minutes into a recent game, the senior left the field to rub Flexall gel on her feet. That takes the edge off the constant pain of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis - a disease that causes inflammation of the joints and prevents many of those afflicted from playing sports.

For 18 years, between ages 5 and 22, I lived in a jersey. Sometimes it was green, sometimes purple; usually it was red. From clinic soccer at Lutherville-Timonium Recreational Council to Division I lacrosse at Stanford, I lived to compete. Now, two years after hanging up my cleats, I am able to step back to examine the game from a different angle. I coach high school JV girls lacrosse and spent this past summer coaching an elite-level club team. My players hailed from eight strong public and private school programs.
