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.

In childhood, Dante DeSimone suffered a medical condition that left him confined to a body cast. He underwent surgery and went on to become an ice hockey and lacrosse player at Upper Darby High School who was looking forward to beginning a collegiate career in sports. "He never gave up. My Dante gave 100 percent in everything he did," said his grieving mother, Rita, as friends and family members cried with her at a candlelight vigil Monday night at the scene where her son was killed in a freak accident over the weekend in Delaware County.

Courtney Legath was not asking for much in her senior year at Moorestown. Only another state championship, another season of 60-plus goals, and no regrets. It's one thing to envision a perfect ending to what has amounted to a stellar high school career. It's another to get exactly what you want. Legath got it. The 5-foot-5 third home for the Quakers led the team in scoring with a personal-best 75 goals. She had 53 assists and helped Moorestown to a 23-0 record and its second straight state title.

Julie Cross is a lacrosse player. A pretty talented one, too. Good enough, in fact, that she'll be playing that sport for Syracuse next year. Watch the 6-foot-2 Upper Dublin senior on a basketball court, however, and you may start thinking she's pursuing the wrong sport in college. Cross averages more than 15 points a game for the Cardinals, and her tremendous 30-point, nine-rebound effort Saturday propelled Upper Dublin to a 65-38 win over Pennridge in the first round of the District 1 Class AAAA tournament.

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.

Bishop Eustace senior lacrosse player Kristen Kelbon had waited an awfully long time for this past Wednesday, and she didn't feel let down. Kelbon played her first game in about a year and didn't lose her scoring touch or her appreciation of what it means to be on the field performing. Last April, she tore the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, and meniscus in her left knee while playing lacrosse. That meant not only the end of her season, but also a year's worth of exercises for her leg and a continuing test of her resolve.
