Brett Manney will always have the courts this summer down the Shore in Ocean City, N.J. But it was hard for the 6-foot-3 Holy Ghost Prep senior to accept the fact that he played his last high school basketball game last night in the PIAA Class AAA state championship game against Moon High School. Manney's hopes of graduating with a state championship evaporated in a 52-50 loss to Moon at the Giant Center. But Manney, a forward, will certainly have a lot of good memories after scoring a game-high 20 points and pulling down seven rebounds.

Unionville's Kelly Haggerty and Jenkintown's Kelly Barnes have more in common than their first names - brown hair, brown eyes and a friendship the long distance between their schools cannot erode. Each girl loves lacrosse, a common interest that kindled a friendship between the two 17-year-old seniors who first met when teammates on the PA Express lacrosse club team. "We were roommates at a [club] tournament a few years ago and we just hit it off," said Barnes, who invited Haggerty to a Halloween costume party at her school; the duo dressed as the Doublemint Twins.

AS SOON as Drexel's lacrosse team concluded practice on Tuesday, Nick Saputo made his way off the turf field. He hit the showers, and traded in his helmet and jersey for a green button-down shirt and khaki pants. The junior midfielder was on his way to his co-op job at Sunoco in South Philadelphia. It is not the average day for a 21-year-old, but it is why he chose Drexel. After freshman year, Drexel co-op students alternate 6-month periods of full-time study and full-time employment with university-approved employers.

Growing up in a household with seven brothers and three sisters turned out to be perfect on-the-job training for Chris Corr, now a budding scorer for the Archbishop Carroll boys' lacrosse team. For any lacrosse attackman, the ability to operate in cramped quarters, namely the crease, is an important attribute. Crowds around the goalmouth aren't a problem for Corr, because, as he joked, "Sometimes it's even crowded in the hallways in our house. " Oddly, Corr has made a slight departure from the others in the hall.

Jeremy Huber died a few days before he was to suit up for his first season of college lacrosse. He has been gone for a little more than three months, but the freshman has never left his teammates. He was with them in the postgame prayer after every game this season. Johns Hopkins players always took the field with the number 19 - his intended jersey number - stitched onto their jerseys and painted on their helmets. That same 19 was painted on their home field in front of their bench.

The last time the Duke women's lacrosse team made a final four in the Philadelphia area, it was 2007, and Taylor Trimble looked on from the Franklin Field stands. Trimble, an eighth grader at the time, was still jamming soccer, squash, and lacrosse into her schedule. Watching the Blue Devils in the NCAA tournament semifinals, even in a 14-13 loss to Virginia, inched her toward the sport. "I just thought it was the coolest thing ever," said Trimble, a Rosemont native who went to Episcopal Academy.

YOUNG BOYS often have similar dreams about their futures. Many want to be a professional athlete, firefighter, astronaut or soldier. Many of these dreams die when they reach school age, and different career paths are forged for them. For Garrett Thul, more than one of his childhood dreams are coming true. Thul was in second grade when he started playing lacrosse. Now, about 14 years later, he is playing at the highest level, for the Wings in the National Lacrosse League. At the same time, he is an active member in the U.S. Army after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 2013.

BILL LEAHY has been there since Day 1. Twenty-one years ago, the former Loyola (Md.) lacrosse star was called to interview for the opportunity to initiate a lacrosse program at La Salle College High School. The marriage proved to be a monumental success. The Explorers have gone 380-76 on Leahy's watch, with three state championships and 17 Catholic League crowns. "In general, it's a perfect match," said Leahy, who doubled as a player for the Philadelphia Wings in 1995-96.

"It will be great exposure for Philadelphia-area lacrosse, with top teams coming in here," Villanova coach Mike Corrado said.
