No. 12 Salisbury got off to a rousing start with a 22-2 blowout of Susquehanna in the first round of the NCAA tournament Wednesday. The victory earned the reigning national champion a second-round date with No. 8 Washington and Lee. The Sea Gulls won 15 of 20 games this season, but one of those losses came at the hands of the Generals, which secured a 7-6 win in double overtime on Feb. 20. The setback followed a 13-12 loss to Lynchburg four days...

For a Washington College team that returned six starters and ranked No. 8 in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, Saturday's 15-8 victory over No. 15 Washington and Lee might not be terribly significant for a program that has qualified for the last two NCAA tournaments. But for a Shoremen squad that boasts four new starters and plays several more newcomers, the win could resonate for a long time, coach Jeff Shirk acknowledged. “I think it's a big deal,” he said Monday morning.

LEXINGTON, Va. - Confederate ghosts crowd the Robert E. Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University - ghosts of the rebel general, who served as president of the college and is buried in the chapel crypt; of his horse, Traveller, buried outside the chapel door; and of the dozen Washington and Lee students killed on Civil War battlefields. But a different sort of spirit ruled the chapel last weekend - that of Ralph Ellison, the late author of the 1952 classic Invisible Man. Scholars of African-American literature and political theory had gathered at the college from around the country for a conference marking the 50th anniversary of the book's publication, and kicked off the symposium in the hallowed chapel.

When they left me outside my freshman dorm in the fall of 2009, my parents told me I could do anything. It was a wonderful compliment, a sign of confidence that made me feel just a little less guilty for the substantial investment they were making for me in a private liberal arts education. But a month or so later, when I sat down with my adviser, I realized doing "anything" wasn't an option. I had to decide on something: a major. I needed to choose a path to follow for the rest of my time at Washington and Lee. A lot of my friends already knew what their something was, and they directed four years of classes and internships toward being investment bankers in New York City or campaign managers in Alabama.

Senior midfielder Luke Heinsohn scored off an assist from senior midfielder Jack Switala with nine seconds remaining in double overtime to lead the Washington and Lee men's lacrosse team to a 7-6 win over host Salisbury on Wednesday. The loss gives Salisbury (1-2) its first two-game losing streak since the 2009 season and dropped the Sea Gulls under .500 for the first time since 1989.  It was also their first home loss since a 16-12 setback to Stevenson on April 16, 2011.  The six goals were the fewest scored by the Sea Gulls since a 9-6 loss to Tufts in the 2010 national championship game.

The interesting thing about John Donaldson, 21, of Hunt Valley, is not that Mario Cuomo has called him twice in the last few weeks to chat.Mario Cuomo likes to chat. If you have a listed number, he might call you to chat.No, the interesting thing about Donaldson is that when he was a high school student in Baltimore and went down to Annapolis as a legislative page, he met all the political leaders of this state and still decided that politics was a worthwhile human endeavor.Now that's what I call interesting.

Three goals from freshman attackman Brady Dashiell and a suffocating defensive effort fueled No. 12 Salisbury's 7-4 upset of No. 8 Washington and Lee in Saturday's second-round contest of the NCAA tournament. But that does not mean that all is well with the reigning national champion. The first midfield of senior Eric Kluge and juniors Tyler Smith and Greg Korvin finished with zero goals and zero assists against the Generals, marking the first time this season that the trio had been shut out since partnering together in March.

No. 12 Salisbury's 7-4 upset of No. 8 Washington and Lee in the second round of the NCAA tournament last Saturday was immensely gratifying to the reigning national champion for two reasons. The Sea Gulls earned their 15th consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals since the tournament added a round prior to the quarterfinals for the 1998 tournament, and they made amends after dropping a 7-6 double-overtime decision to the Generals on Feb. 20. “It was nice to win the game because it obviously gets us to the quarterfinals,” coach Jim Berkman said Monday morning.
