Washington Township is ahead of schedule, and so are the Tiernan twins. That's typical for the Minutemaids' sophomore midfielders. They always arrive faster than expected. "They have nationally ranked speed," Washington Township coach Sandy Stockl said. The Tiernans played a major role Wednesday as Washington Township built a big lead and held on for a 13-12 victory over Lenape in an Olympic Conference American Division lacrosse game. Although they combined for just one goal, the Tiernans made an impact with their ability to collect ground balls, race from end to end with the ball, and use their speed and quickness at the defensive end. "Our speed helps us out," said Megan Tiernan, the slightly faster, slightly smaller of the twins.

Friday night's showdown in boys' lacrosse between No. 1 St. Augustine Prep and No. 3 Moorestown should be a good game. It also will be for a good cause. The 7 p.m. game at St. Augustine will be part of "Jack McGetrick Night" as the two lacrosse powers combine to help raise funds for a long-time lacrosse coach. McGetrick, head coach at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky., is battling prostrate cancer. There will be a $2 admission charge to the game, with all proceeds going to help with McGetrick's medical costs.

According to Bob Ruoff, executive secretary of District 1, boys' lacrosse is likely to become a sport sponsored by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association. Last week, a proposal was made by District 3 officials at a PIAA meeting in Shippensburg. There were no votes against district playoffs in boys' lacrosse - an opportunity already accorded girls' lacrosse teams. "I think the time has come for it," Ruoff said. "Lacrosse is growing in numbers and popularity every year.

Nicole McCarthy, who helped the Springfield field hockey team claim the PIAA District 1 Class AA championship just a few weeks ago, will play lacrosse on scholarship at American University in Washington. "I love the D.C. area," said McCarthy, who is a defensive wing in lacrosse. "The coach [Maureen Scott Dupcak] came to one of my hockey games. She's young, and I really like her and the team. The campus was great, not too big, not too small, and it was close enough to home. I feel I can get a lot out of the school.

Meanwhile, Flynn's team played keep-away, pelting the team's sole goaltender with shots.

Walking into CrossFit Main Line, the Ardmore outpost of the national gym franchise, there was an immediate boot-camp vibe. The decor - rough panels of wood boldly marked like cargo with the gym's logo, a suspended hand-pull apparatus flanked by an American flag - signaled an Olympian dedication to athletics. Beneath the apparatus, a small circle of participants, mostly middle-aged and male, was engrossed in executing leap-frog-like sets of burpees. Pump-up tunes - Macklemore's "Thrift Shop," DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What" - played in the background.

The first time Matt Donnelly saw a backstop behind a lacrosse cage, it was like a revelation. His neighbor, Mike Sutton, had a cage in his backyard. And the backstop behind it changed everything for Donnelly. "I couldn't believe it," he said. "I could shoot all I wanted and not have go chase after every shot," Donnelly said with a laugh. For years after that, Donnelly and Sutton would spend hours, days on end, practicing their shot and refining their games. Whatever they were doing, it worked extraordinarily well.

At the end of her freshman year, Gabby Fornia met with coach Jill McCarthy to review her first season of high school lacrosse. They talked about what went right for Fornia that season, what went wrong. Fornia talked about what she wanted to improve on. "The first thing she told me was, 'I want to make my teammates better. I want to improve my passing, look to thread the needle more and just assist more.' " The words were prophetic. Fornia wanted more assists this year.

Three times Liz Scott sat and watched while others won state lacrosse championships at Hersheypark Stadium. Three times she wondered what it would be like to wear Conestoga colors and play on that field for a chance at a title. Three times she watched as her older brothers - Ben, Tanner and Carson - led the Pioneers to state glory. "When I sat in the stands watching them in Hershey for all those years, I always dreamed like, 'I can do this, I want to win a state championship, I want to have that feeling that they had.' " said Scott, a sophomore attacker/midfielder.

If all goes according to plan, most of the action Alex Andersen sees in his athletic career occurs in front of him. In the fall and winter, the 6-foot-2, 270-pound center snaps footballs, pounds linebackers and protects the ball carriers and quarterbacks. Come springtime, however, Andersen is the last line of defense as goaltender of the Radnor lacrosse team. "Physically, the actions you are doing are a lot different," said Andersen, who will play football at Penn next season.

Hand-eye coordination, lightning-fast reflexes, and knowledge of angles certainly help, but the key to making saves for St. Joseph's Prep goaltender Mike Marchese comes down to something else entirely. "Having a couple screws loose in the head," Marchese said after his six fourth-quarter saves helped the Hawks beat Bishop Shanahan, 9-7, in the first round of the PIAA lacrosse playoffs Wednesday night at Plymouth Whitemarsh. The Prep, which last made the PIAA playoffs in 2011, will play Manheim Township on Saturday in the quarterfinals.
