Nine-time reigning national champion Salisbury is off to a 2-0 start, which includes a 16-9 victory over No. 11 Lynchburg. But the degree of difficulty will ratchet up at least a level (or three) when No. 2 Roanoke visits Sea Gull Stadium in Salisbury on Saturday. The meeting between the top two teams in the preseason poll released by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association is a prime opportunity for the Sea Gulls to assess their progress thus far. “Our guys are always amped up to play the best teams on our schedule,” Salisbury coach Jim Berkman said.

Here is the opening installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III 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 Wednesday begins with a visit with St. Mary's. REVIEW The good: The 2014 campaign did not go the way the Seahawks (7-10 overall and 3-4 in the Capital Athletic Conference) had planned, but the season got off to a good start with a 12-8 victory on Feb. 18 over a Roanoke team that had been ranked eighth in a United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association preseason poll.

Stevenson is dealing with two losses: Tuesday night's 14-13 overtime setback to Roanoke and a shoulder injury to starting goalkeeper Dimitri Pecunes. Coach Paul Cantabene said Wednesday morning that the freshman suffered a sprained AC joint when he was tackled from behind on a clear attempt in the first quarter and fell on his shoulder. Cantabene said Pecunes is expected to be sidelined for at least one week and possibly as many as three. “So we don't know when we're going to get him back,” Cantabene said.

Tyler Fuhrman came off the bench to score three goals and lead No. 5 Stevenson to a 12-11 decision over Roanoke on Saturday, but he will get a promotion for Tuesday night's contest against No. 3 Tufts. The freshman will join senior Chris Dashiell and sophomore Stephen Banick as starting attackmen when the Mustangs (5-1) take the field at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills at 7 p.m. Fuhrman will replace freshman Edward McLoughlin, who has posted zero goals on 16 shots and added just one assist in six starts.

Preseason speculation that St. Mary's could make some waves on the Division III national landscape appeared to gain momentum after the Seahawks opened the season with a 13-12 upset of No. 11 Roanoke on  Sunday. It's a rousing start for St. Mary's, but coach Chris Hasbrouck joked that it beat the alternative. “It's better than being 0-1,” he quipped Monday afternoon. “Obviously, it's a very good start. I think we played hard. We really didn't play that well. We had moments when we didn't do very well.

St. Mary's got off to the start it was looking for by beating Roanoke for the second consecutive season. And the Seahawks - ranked 18th in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association preseason poll - will next clash with Dickinson on Saturday at 1 p.m. at St. Paul's School in Brooklandville for the second straight year. But unlike 2013, coach Chris Hasbrouck would prefer if St. Mary's avoided a repeat of the 19-5 drubbing the Red Devils delivered. To do that, Hasbrouck said the team has to refrain from enjoying Tuesday's 12-8 victory over the Maroons too much.

Strictly by the rankings in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association preseason poll, No. 18 St. Mary's 12-8 victory over No. 8 Roanoke on Tuesday would seem to qualify as an upset. It's a label that Seahawks coach Chris Hasbrouck would prefer to avoid. “I think we're to the point where we're wondering when is it going to stop being considered an upset,” he said Wednesday morning. “I think that's the thing. We feel very good about the work we're putting in and the players we're bringing in and the competition.

The 2013 campaign in which St. Mary's captured the Capital Athletic Conference tournament to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history was kickstarted by a season-opening 13-12 upset of Roanoke. So what are the Seahawks - ranked 18th in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - doing for an encore? Trying to repeat history with a visit of the No. 8 Maroons on Tuesday. But before he can entertain visions of another upset dancing in his head, St. Mary's coach Chris Hasbrouck acknowledged that both teams are much different versions of last year's squads.

St. Mary's was supposed to begin the season Sunday at Roanoke. But the winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow in and around Baltimore was even more paralyzing at Roanoke, forcing both teams to push back the season opener to Tuesday. So instead of kicking things off Sunday, the Seahawks - ranked 18th in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - have been hitting the practice field in preparation for the No. 8 Maroons. “We had prepared and were hoping to get the game in,” coach Chris Hasbrouck said Monday afternoon.

Mention the Blue Ridge Parkway and most people picture gorgeous vistas and floral treasures -- from spring blooms of Indian paintbrush, princess tree and heal all to the blazing autumn trees.But I've always thought of the road as a driveway -- albeit a wonderfully scenic driveway -- for Roanoke, the largest city along the 470-mile route.Roanoke (pop. 97,200) provides visitors a nice mix of urban and country life. It's big enough to support a symphony orchestra, art museum and other cultural institutions, but not quite crowded enough to generate traffic jams.

It was what Mustangs coach Paul Cantebene anticipated. “It's a fair bracket,” he said Monday morning. “We're going to see good teams no matter what.

Paul Cantabene was not entirely sure how the Stevenson players would react after dropping a 14-13 overtime decision to Roanoke on Tuesday night. But as the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to dip back into Middle Atlantic Conference play with a visit from Albright this Saturday at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills, the head coach is hoping that the team practices and plays with an undercurrent of anger. “I think we need to start playing a little more angrily,” Cantabene said Wednesday. “In my time here, this is one of our nicer teams.
