You hear the name Belichick, you think football. But the truth is that lacrosse is just as big in the household of New England Patriots coach and Annapolis High grad Bill Belichick . On Thursday came the news that Bill's daughter Amanda Belichick has been appointed interim head coach at Wesleyan, her alma mater, for the 2014 season. Following in her father's footsteps, Belichick has coached since her four-year lacrosse career at the Middletown, Conn., school ended in 2007.

Brady Dashiell and Jesse Rabishaw got a few minutes and a few runs in No. 5 Salisbury's 13-7 victory over Ohio Wesleyan at the Landon School in Bethesda, but that was enough to satisfy - for now - a pair of former starters returning from injury. Dashiell, a sophomore, had missed two games because of injuries to his arch and ankle. Rabishaw, a junior, also sat out two contests due to a sprained ankle. While they didn't regain their starting jobs, they did contribute in the win for the Sea Gulls (6-0)

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - Zachary Strassburger came to Wesleyan University looking forward to the camaraderie of life in a college dorm. But there was a problem. Though physically female, Strassburger lives as a male. Under Wesleyan's policy, any roommate assigned to Strassburger would have to be female. Housing officials offered Strassburger the alternative of a single room. Reluctantly, Strassburger took the offer. "I wanted the experience of having a roommate, and I'm sad that I didn't," said Strassburger, whose name was legally changed to Zachary last fall.

Scott Marsh is the first to admit that he never thought he'd find himself in the cage, trying to help St. Mary's collect wins. But that's exactly where the Crofton native and South River graduate found himself Wednesday afternoon at Johns Hopkins' Homewood Field. The Seahawks eventually lost, 11-6, to No. 12 Denison, but not because of Marsh, who finished with a game-high 14 saves in 34 minutes of work. Marsh has taken a circuitous route to get to this stage. He spent his freshman year at Anne Arundel Community College and then played for the club team as a sophomore and junior.

With the Capital Athletic Conference scheduling the league tournament one week before the end of the regular season, Stevenson has usually taken the step of scheduling an opponent prior to the start of the NCAA tournament. The Mustangs (15-4) did the same thing this year, collecting a 10-5 victory over Ohio Wesleyan last Saturday. Besides adding to the win column, coach Paul Cantabene said the game gave the players a chance to hone their skills and stretch their legs against the Battling Bishops, who became the seventh opponent on Stevenson's schedule to qualify for the NCAA tournament.

Salisbury State College will play host to Ithaca College in the first round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III lacrosse tournament Wednesday but may not get the home-field advantage it expected in the playoffs as the division's top-ranked team.Salisbury (13-0) was put in the same bracket as No. 2 Ohi Wesleyan (12-3), which plays Washington & Lee (11-3) in the opening round. If both teams win Wednesday, they would meet Sunday, probably at Ohio Wesleyan, because the Battling Bishops were selected the higher seed in the bracket by the selection committee, based mostly on strength of schedule and geographical location.

Max Venker is playing on a fractured ankle. Akash Naik has a stress fracture in his pelvis. Tim Markham has worked through broken bones in his foot and nose. Then there's Ben McAbee, the only senior starter on Johns Hopkins' men's soccer team, who needed a rod inserted in his lower leg for a stress fracture and also had bone chips removed from his ankle. The team that coach Matt Smith sends into tomorrow's NCAA Division III regional at Homewood Field has faced enough adversity to warrant its No. 1 seed.
