"That's to be expected with all the youngsters we've been playing.

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.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals had put together a great plan for this season. A run at the Stanley Cup was in their view finder. And Washington may still make the run. But if the Caps do, they will do it in quite a different way from what they had first imagined. Saturday, the team learned it will be without defenseman Calle Johansson, its longtime defensive anchor. The 14-year Caps' veteran is having surgery today to repair a severely torn right rotator cuff and will be out for up to eight months.

Except for a brief period on the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad, center Mike Flynn has spent most of his 10-year NFL career as a member of the the Ravens. How does it feel to be one of six players left from the 2000 Super Bowl-winning team? It's scary, but I guess good, too. It's different. Things have really changed this year and last year with big turnover. But I guess for the guys that are still here, it's a testament to being able to stand the test of time. We have to use our experience to help these young guys and try to get back to the Super Bowl before they kick us out of the league.

When Rear Adm. Richard J. Naughton took command of training the Navy's top fighter pilots two years ago, he didn't wait long to make changes. Within a few months, he had pushed through a plan to gain oversight of 11 weapons schools around the country. And he soon turned an undistinguished tactics school in San Diego into a streamlined command he termed the Center of Maritime Dominance. But he also worried about the small stuff. Unhappy with the menu at the enlisted mess hall, he got the Navy to install a hamburger joint and a taco stand.

Losers' refrains never change, regardless of the situation, regardless of the sport. If the coach is too nice, the players want someone tougher. If the coach is too tough, the players want someone nicer.Ted Marchibroda was too nice -- that much was obvious in his three seasons with the Ravens. But will the players respond to a stricter coach -- if one is even available -- or will they simply register opposite complaints the next time around?The debate strikes at the core of this team's questionable character.

The Washington Capitals are easy targets. Just look at them.Almost every other team in the Eastern Conference has made noticeable improvements, but the Capitals go into this season with beautiful, new uniforms covering the same old problems -- and some new ones.Their top scoring line of a year ago is gone: Dimitri Khristich has been traded; Peter Bondra, the NHL's leading goal scorer, and Michal Pivonka, the team's third-leading scorer, are holding out.They have Ken Klee and Jim Johnson, two defensemen, playing forward.

Washington is 4-0 in the Centennial Conference for the first time in four years and 7-2 overall after registering a 13-8 victory over Muhlenberg Saturday. The Shoremen are a half-game ahead of No. 8 Dickinson and No. 20 Gettysburg - who are both 3-0 in the league - and enjoying their unfamiliar spot atop the standings. “I think it's pretty big because we're all about conference play in terms of qualifying for the conference tournament,” coach Jeff Shirk said last week. “And anything can happen once you qualify for the tournament and the only way you're guaranteed to get to the NCAA Tournament is with that automatic bid. I think with our focus and emphasis on conference play, being able to get a quick start is really big so that you're not always playing from behind.

After opening the season with back-to-back losses by a combined three goals, Washington has ripped off four consecutive wins, capped by Saturday's comeback 10-9 victory over Centennial Conference rival McDaniel. The Shoremen's run has gotten this far despite a spate of injuries that have depleted the team of some of its top players. Sophomore attackman Jim Cusik, who registered 16 goals and three assists last year, tore the meniscus in his knee against Catholic March 10 and is out for the remainder of the season.
