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.

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.

On a recent cloudy Saturday morning, 42 boys aged 8 to 12 assembled on a lacrosse field behind the Folsom Boys' Club in Ridley Township for a youth lacrosse game against a team from Springfield. The game was to begin at 10, but by 10:45 the Springfield team hadn't shown up, and Matt Flynn, head coach of the Ridley junior lacrosse B team, was calling around to find the Springfield team. Meanwhile, Flynn's team played keep-away, pelting the team's sole goaltender with shots.
