Navy's 18-5 rout of VMI last Saturday was the program's 13th consecutive season-opening win since a 9-8 overtime loss to UMBC on Feb. 24, 2001. While the victory was also notable for snapping a seven-game losing skid that ended the 2013 campaign, coach Rick Sowell said Monday that the emphasis for the team was turning its attention to this Saturday when Georgetown visits Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis at 12 p.m. “It's always...

The Navy men's lacrosse team jumped out to a 7-0 lead and never looked back as the Mids claimed a 16-5 win over VMI Saturday at Rip Miller Field in the season opener for both teams. Eleven Midshipmen scored despite a pair of three-minute stick penalties in their ninth home-opening victory. The game was moved from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to Rip Miller Field because of field conditions from the recent snowstorms. "I felt like we played a lot better today than how we did a year ago at this same time," said Navy head coach Richie Meade.

Brady Dove may have turned some heads by winning 16-of-21 faceoffs and collecting a game-high nine ground balls in Navy's 18-5 thumping of VMI in the season opener for both sides on Saturday, but the freshman's performance was not news to coach Rick Sowell. “He's been pretty good ever since he showed up in the fall,” Sowell said Monday afternoon of Dove. “… He's been rock solid. But you never know with faceoffs. It just takes that one matchup, that one move that's your Achilles heel and the next thing you know, instead of maybe being 16-of-21, you're 5-of-21.

Gavin Stephenson was admittedly perplexed. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound combo guard played well for Crusader Nation on the AAU circuit over the summer, but attention from college programs was surprisingly minimal. “I would text [Crusader Nation] coach [ Fred McCathorine ] all the time -- 'You hear anything? You hear anything?' I only got a couple calls from a couple schools,” Stephenson said. “I was starting to get nervous. Then during the season, I only heard from a few schools.” Midway through his senior season at Atholton, Stephenson, who spent his first three years of high school at Mount St. Joseph, said that he began to explore the possibility of attending prep school next year.

A federal judge has upheld the Virginia Military Institute's xTC males-only admission policy. U.S. law clearly states that such schools as VMI, which have always been single-sex, may continue to be, but opponents of this policy in public institutions believe it is unconstitutional. Yet this is not as easy an issue to dispose of as it looks. The federal judge's ruling will definitely be appealed to the Supreme Court.Virginia women are right that as taxpayers and citizens they should not be denied a "unique" educational experience the state provides for males.

"VMI truly marches to the beat of a different drummer," U.S. District Court Judge Jackson Kiser ruled.Not this year. Not in the presidential inaugural parade. It won't march at all. Traditionally the school's cadets have marched, but this year there will be no VMI on Pennsylvania Avenue.Some Virginians say their military school was snubbed because its males-only admissions policy is politically incorrect and unacceptable to the Clinton administration. Inaugural committee officials say that is not true, they just wanted more "diversity."

The Mount St. Joseph High School community was in shock Monday after learning that a 2009 graduate of the Irvington campus died Saturday following a 10-mile road march at the Virginia Military Institute. John Alexander Evans, 19, a freshman at the Lexington, Va., college, collapsed in his barracks room after the march, in which more than 400 members of the freshman class participated, and died at a local hospital. The fourth-class cadet was a resident of Highland in Howard County.

When Navy opens the season this Saturday against VMI at noon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, the team will be represented by some familiar household names like long-stick midfielder Pat Kiernan and attackmen Sam Jones and Tucker Hull. The squad will also feature some fresh faces. At least four freshmen are expected to start for the Midshipmen and a few others could contribute, too. It might seem like an alarmingly high number of rookies for a program that requires discipline and execution to run its schemes on offense and defense, but coach Rick Sowell sounded confident Monday about the freshmen's ability to perform under fire.

In many team sports, only one coach can say that the most recent season ended in a way that was satisfying. In men's lacrosse, that feeling of contentment can be ascribed to Duke's John Danowski, which is why Navy's Rick Sowell is eager for Saturday's season opener against VMI at noon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. “It's the beginning of the year, and coming off a year when we didn't have the success that we wanted, we're chomping at the bit,” Sowell said Monday afternoon, referring to the team's 3-10 record in 2013 that included a program-worst in single-season losses and consecutive setbacks (seven)

No one in men's lacrosse might be happier than Rick Sowell, who watched his Navy team wallop VMI, 20-7, in the season opener for both teams last Saturday. The 20 goals was the program's largest output since a 23-4 thrashing of Holy Cross on April 18, 2004, and the 13-goal margin of victory was the widest since a 16-3 demolition of Holy Cross on March 15, 2008. But the Midshipmen coach cautioned against overly excited about the squad's offensive production in what is the first game of 13 on the schedule.

Throughout fall workouts and the preseason, Navy coach Rick Sowell has openly voiced his opinion that the midfield needs to play better to alleviate some of the scoring burden on the attack. The attack got some help in Saturday's season-opening 20-7 thumping of VMI, but it was the second line that outperformed the starters. Junior Erik Hoffstadt registered three goals and one assist, and junior Sean Price and freshman Kevin Wendel each contributed a goal. That trio's play made an impression with Sowell.
