CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Jurors found a former University of Virginia lacrosse player guilty of second-degree murder Wednesday in the slaying of his ex-girlfriend that was fueled by jealousy over her relationship with another lacrosse player. Jurors met for nine hours in the trial of George Huguely V, rejecting a verdict of first-degree murder that could have resulted in life in prison in the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love. He also was convicted of grand larceny. The two convictions call for a maximum of 60 years in prison.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - A former University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his ex-girlfriend lied about visiting friends hours before her battered body was found and had a "blank stare" on his face, a former teammate testified Wednesday as the prosecution rested and the defense began. Ken Clausen, a Hill School graduate from Downington, and other teammates of George Huguely testified at his first-degree murder trial in the May 3, 2010, slaying of Yeardley Love. Friends have testified that the women's lacrosse player had a jealousy fueled, on-and-off relationship with Huguely, who is 24. Love, 22, was found in the bedroom of her Charlottesville apartment with bruises on her body and a battered right eye and neck.

In its 56th season, the Moorestown Friends girls' lacrosse team is among the oldest high school programs in the area and the country. The team - steeped in success and tradition - has eight undefeated campaigns and a state title. Throughout the years, no Moorestown Friends girls' lacrosse player has scored more than Noelle Smith's 207 career goals. A record of that magnitude, for a program with that much history, conjures up certain images in opponents' heads, Smith said. It's what makes the record such a great honor, but, in a way, also a bit strange.

Megan Kelly's lacrosse stick looks like something you'd find lying in a forest. It's called a Bamshaft. It's made of bamboo. Not many high school lacrosse players use a Bamshaft, and when describing it, Kelly said with a laugh, "People make fun of it all the time. " It's unconventional, and it's marketed toward those who want to check harder, play ultra-tough defense, and, in some way, stand out on the field. So it's almost a perfect fit for Kelly, the top defender for Moorestown and this season's Inquirer Player of the Year in South Jersey girls' lacrosse.

The merit of such a bold compliment - a tad brazen on its face - was never hard to find. Just watch Steph Toy rifle shots with either hand. Watch her make crisp passes. Watch her spin and juke, a veritable Barry Sanders of girls' lacrosse. And if you can't watch her, take a look at Moorestown's stat sheets over the last four years. It quickly makes sense why Quakers coach Deanna Knobloch tells anyone who will listen that "Steph Toy is without a doubt the most athletic player we've coached in my 21 years at Moorestown.

When he was a freshman, Charlie Kitchen was 5-foot-9 and a rail-thin 130 pounds. He spent that season on the St. Augustine junior varsity lacrosse team. "I used to like speed dodging," Kitchen said, "because I was usually smaller than everyone else. " It's a striking comment from someone who measured a hulking 6-foot-31/2 and 205 pounds this year. It also goes a long way in explaining Kitchen's game. In a breakout season, Kitchen beat defenders in a variety of ways. He was nimble and quick for someone who was generally bigger than any other player on the field.

The Inquirer player of the year in South Jersey girls' lacrosse, Nicolai was one of the state's offensive forces from the midfield, with 77 goals and 26 assists.

The former Germantown Friends School standout made that known last July when she wrote to ESPN to express her dismay that the boys' Senior Under Armour All-America high school lacrosse game was televised live on the same day the girls' game was not.
