Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Wednesday's visit was with St. Mary's. Thursday's visit is with Washington College. REVIEW The good: The Shoremen's 10-7 victory over Colorado College in the first round of the NCAA tournament may not have been earth-shattering, but the win was the program's first in the postseason since 2008 when that squad defeated Lynchburg, 12-9.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

At 10-1 and ranked No. 10 in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, Washington College is enjoying one of its more successful campaigns in recent history. But the team is thriving despite a troubling pattern of slow starts. The Shoremen have ended the first quarter with only a one- or two-goal lead in four contests, and although they won all four games, the margin of victory for two of those was just a single goal. During a three game-stretch against McDaniel on March 23, Haverford on March 27 and Franklin & Marshall on March 30, the team trailed at the start of the second quarters in each of those contests.

After opening the season with back-to-back losses, Washington College has racked up six consecutive wins and moved to the top of the Centennial Conference with a 3-0 record. And some of the team's resurgence can be traced to an emerging defense. A unit that surrendered 10 goals per game last year has trimmed that average to 6.4 in eight contests this season. Coach Jeff Shirk said close defensemen Bryan Botti, Michael Pierandri and Jack Vermeil, short-stick defensive midfielders David Lundquist and Morgan Braendel, long-stick midfielder Stephen Pappas and goalkeeper Peter Stewart have gotten comfortable in their second year in the unit's schemes.

No. 4 Stevenson can sit back Sunday and celebrate a hard-fought, come-from-behind 17-13 victory over No. 11 Washington College in Saturday night's NCAA tournament second-round contest at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. As much as talent and mental fortitude played a role in the team outscoring the Shoremen 6-1 in the pivotal fourth quarter, the Mustangs know they cannot afford to fall behind again when they meet No. 13 Lynchburg (14-5) - a 12-9 winner over No. 7 Roanoke - at home on Wednesday at 7 p.m. “We definitely have to jump out on them early,” sophomore midfielder Billy Burgoyne said of the Hornets.

After escaping with a 9-8 overtime decision over Centennial Conference rival Ursinus on Wednesday night, No. 6 Washington College went through equal amounts of relief and confidence. “From a coaching standpoint, a huge sigh of relief,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Thursday afternoon. “I think from the players' standpoint, there was an excitement. We definitely dodged a bullet against a very good Ursinus team that played very well last night. But at the end of the day, it was a little more excitement than relief because we found ourselves in a dogfight right from the beginning and found a way to win at the end when it looked like we weren't going to. So I think it was a great experience that will help build the program and the team.” The Shoremen improved to 10-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, further solidifying their grip on first place in the league.

When Washington College rallied to edge Salisbury, 7-6, on April 17, 2013, it snapped the Shoremen's 12-game losing streak to the Sea Gulls and was the program's first victory over the 10-time national champions since May 4, 2002. Quite naturally, that outcome has been treated differently by both programs. While insisting that he doesn't plan on taking No. 7 Washington College (5-0) for a trip down memory lane, coach Jeff Shirk said the players could use that result as inspiration for the latest installment of the “War on the Shore” rivalry, which will take place Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Sea Gull Stadium in Salisbury.

This 19th-century home at 114 Washington Ave. in Chestertown on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay fits the bill. "What I like best about the house is the enthusiasm with which the owners researched [the home's history] and tried to restore it as authentically as they could," said Terry Stafford, an agent with Keller Williams American Premier Realty LLC and the listing agent for the property, which is priced at $675,000.
