Mount Hebron High has set the standard for high school girls' lacrosse in Maryland. The Vikings have won six straight state championships and turned out numerous solid college players while dominating the sport at the precollege level in Maryland for the past dozen years. Part of that success is breeding travel programs that are extending the sport's traditional spring season to a virtual year-round affair.
