From Inside Lacrosse | May 8, 2014
Richmond coach Dan Chemotti said that at the beginning of the year, he and his team weren't even thinking about making the Atlantic Sun tournament. To him, it was more about the process than setting specific goals, and some practices early on indicated that the Spiders weren't anywhere close to where they wanted to be. Their one-goal loss in the program's opener at the hands of five-time national champion Virginia proved otherwise. Fast forward three months, and Richmond earned a trip to the NCAA tournament in its first year with an automatic berth from the newly formed A-Sun.

Baltimore's pioneer and forgotten professional social worker, Mary Ellen Richmond, who has been compared to her contemporary, Jane Addams of Chicago's Hull House, is buried on a slight knoll in Loudon Park Cemetery. Carved on the white marble tombstone is the Family Welfare Association's emblem and motto: "Light from hand to hand. Life from age to age." Richmond originated the casework method used by professional social workers. As she described it, such work "has for its immediate aim the betterment of individuals or families, one by one, as distinguished from their betterment in the mass."

After four years, 89 games and a political science degree, Wayne Sparrow will leave Richmond next month. But the former St. Frances star's playing days aren't over. Sparrow, who redshirted with the Spiders during the 2010-11 season, will spend his final year of eligibility playing for UMBC. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound shooting guard committed to the Retrievers last week. “I felt as though a different area, a difference scene would be good for me,” said Sparrow, who will graduate from Richmond on May 14. “I had a couple injuries at Richmond, and felt as though I needed a new start.

UMBC's bid to upset No. 3 Johns Hopkins on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Retrievers Stadium in Catonsville could miss a key ingredient in starting midfielder Zach Linkous. The senior missed the team's 14-5 dismantling of Richmond on Saturday because of a shin injury, and his availability for Saturday's contest between the Retrievers (2-1) and Blue Jays (4-0) is uncertain. Coach Don Zimmerman characterized Linkous' status as to be determined, and he said he is hoping that source of the St. Paul's graduate's problem is not a stress fracture.

Palace is the 8-5 morning-line favorite for today's $250,000 General George Handicap at Laurel Park, a 7-furlong race with nine sprinters. A son of City Zip, Palace won three straight stakes races in New York last year, including the Fall Highweight, before two second-place finishes on the inner track at Aqueduct. He has been first or second 11 times in 12 starts for trainer Linda Rice. " He is very consistent with a lot of natural raw talent," Rice said. "He is a closer, so they are always fun. " Javerre will return to seek another victory after winning the Grade 3 sprint last year at 6-1 odds.

The inexperience that coach Tom Gravante anticipated seeing from a Mount St. Mary's team that graduated 22 seniors last May came to fruition in Saturday's scrimmage against Richmond. The Mountaineers committed 23 turnovers in four 15-minute quarters and fared poorly overall against the Spiders, who are making their college lacrosse debut this season. But Gravante said the mistakes were not shocking. “My staff anticipated not performing to our ability for a couple reasons,” he said Tuesday evening.

The Towson football team's bid for at least a share of what would be the program's third Colonial Athletic Association title would appear to be on the right path with Saturday's game against an underperforming Richmond squad. But that is not the approach that the Tigers (7-1 overall and 3-1 in the conference) are taking. Yes, the Spiders - who have won three league championships, including a share of last year's crown - are 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the CAA, but all five of those losses have occurred by a combined 20 points.
