Seton Keough's girls lacrosse team completed some unfinished business in winning last night's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference title with a 14-10 win over Friends at Johns Hopkins' Homewood Field. A year ago, the Gators went unbeaten through the B Conference but suffered through a couple of difficult late-season moments - mourning the death of coach Flo Bell and then losing the conference title game to Park. "This year, we were just trying to get back for last year," said Gators junior Kerry O'Connell, who scored six goals last night.

For the past month, Pennsylvania and Northwestern have been the top-ranked women's lacrosse teams in the country, so it only seems fitting that they should meet in tonight's national final. Three-time defending champion Northwestern reigned at No. 1 for most of the season until Penn ended its 36-game winning streak with an 11-7 win on April 27 in Philadelphia. The Quakers then replaced the Wildcats at No. 1. Still, the two are so closely matched that Northwestern (20-1) earned the top-seeded spot and Penn (17-1)

The Friends girls lacrosse team began plotting yesterday's championship a year ago.

The Friends boys lacrosse team did not qualify for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs, which start later this week, but the Quakers still had plenty of motivation in their season finale against visiting John Carroll. Intent on making a statement to the top team in the B Conference and looking to send out their seniors on a winning note, the 12th-ranked Quakers downed No. 11 John Carroll, 12-7, yesterday, ending the Patriots' 22-game winning streak spanning the past two seasons.

Uta Dreher drove four hours from Scranton, Pa., to Baltimore yesterday to be reminded of the Friends who had fed her a daily meal when she was growing up in war-torn Dresden, Germany, after World War II. She was moved to tears at Enoch Pratt Free Library on Cathedral Street, where a traveling exhibit, Quiet Helpers: Quaker Service in Postwar Germany, is on display in the main atrium until May 17. "They changed my life," Dreher, 66, said. "I'm not a Quaker, but I am a nonviolent activist."

Northwestern coach Kelly Amonte Hiller isn't quite ready to christen her women's lacrosse team a dynasty, but she said it's OK if anyone else wants to. Last night, the Wildcats extended their string of NCAA championships to four with a 10-6 win over Pennsylvania that avenged their only loss of the season before a title-game record announced crowd of 6,125 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. Only one other team has won more consecutive titles and more national championships overall - Maryland, which won seven between 1995 and 2001 and has 10 total national titles.
