For Haddonfield girls' lacrosse midfielder Maddie Kiep, this season is about looking at the big picture. In just its third season as a varsity program, Haddonfield (16-1) earned a No. 1 seed in the South Jersey Group 1 tournament and is the clear favorite to earn its first sectional title. Expectations continue to grow for the Bulldogs. But for Kiep, parts of those expectations have already been met. In three short years, the junior has been a major part of a core group of players that established a tradition and foundation that should carry Haddonfield for years to come.

Duke University's troubled lacrosse team will play next season, but it will be under strict rules and close monitoring, school president Richard Brodhead said yesterday. The team's season was halted when three players were charged with rape. "I am, I know, taking a risk in reinstating men's lacrosse," Brodhead said in a statement. "The reinstatement is inevitably probationary. " Brodhead canceled the team's season April 5 after an exotic dancer who had been hired to perform at a March 13 team party told police she was raped by three team members at an off-campus house.
