There was a night in December, just before winter break, when Chris Hofmann arrived at Haddon Township High School not knowing what to expect. Hofmann was the president of the newly formed Haddon Township lacrosse club. And this meeting at the high school would gauge the town's appetite for lacrosse and for starting a high school program. "To be honest," Hofmann said, "walking through the door at that meeting, I had no idea if we would have 20 kids or 100 kids. "We ended up having about 200 people show up: about 100 student-athletes and their parents.

Libby Nichols, then 10 years old, wasn't considering future implications of what she was feeling after she fell at soccer practice. She just knew her head hurt. "I didn't know what all happened. I was seeing dots," Nichols said. "I continued to play. I shouldn't have. We did a heading drill right after I fell. " By that night, she was vomiting. A trip to the emergency room confirmed she'd suffered a mild concussion. As far as Nichols knows, that's the only concussion she ever suffered.

Tyler Graham missed most of his senior lacrosse season after he suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in August. Still, he didn't let the lost time prevent him from reaching a milestone. Playing in his third game this year, Graham recorded his 100th career point to help the Gloucester Catholic boys' lacrosse team beat visiting Camden Catholic, 6-5, in an Olympic National matchup Monday. Graham entered the game needing three points to reach 100. He finished with two goals and an assist.

Nick Saputo isn't known for his scoring, but the Drexel junior is adept at faceoffs. In the biggest game of his college career, he excelled at both. Saputo entered Sunday's game with three goals, but he added three in the first half and was a faceoff force in leading Drexel to a 16-11 win over fourth-seeded Penn in a first-round NCAA men's lacrosse tournament game at Franklin Field. This was the first NCAA tournament game for the Dragons (13-4), the Colonial Athletic Association tourney champions, who will face fifth-seeded Denver in Sunday's quarterfinal at 2:30 p.m. at the University of Delaware.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The season came to an end for Penn on Sunday in a 13-5 loss to No. 1 Maryland in the second round of the NCAA women's lacrosse tournament at Maryland's field hockey and lacrosse complex. Penn struck first on a goal by senior midfielder Lindsey Smith, a former Unionville High star, less than five minutes into the game, but Maryland's relentless attack proved to be too much. Taylor Cummings, Beth Glaros, and Kelly McPartland scored hat tricks for the Terrapins (20-1)

The first term that came to mind when summing up Peyton Sventy isn't exactly scientific, but it's telling of what makes for a consistent lacrosse program. "Peyton is just one of those lax-for-lifers," Rancocas Valley girls' coach Sara Shelley said. "She loves playing, she's eager to play in college, and she works hard every day. " In other words, Sventy is something of a model for the type of player Shelley has seen more of over the last few seasons, as her program has reached new levels of success and consistency.

Shortly after the members of the Penn women's lacrosse team walked off the field following a sound beating (12-6) by Virginia in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament, coach Karin Corbett delivered the same message to her despondent players that she had given them all season. "We were sloppy all season long, and it finally caught up to us against a very good ACC team," Corbett said. "We were young last season, and every time we talked about cleaning up our game, the girls were kind of like, 'Yeah, whatever.' "Looking back," the Quakers coach continued, "that might have been the best thing that could have happened to us. All season long I didn't have to spend too much time on that.

If there were any doubts about whom the Penn men's lacrosse team turns to in a pinch, those questions were answered in the Ivy League tournament. The Quakers (11-3), who will host Drexel (12-4) on Sunday at Franklin Field in the first round of the NCAA tournament, needed a prime-time performance out of all-Ivy League midfielder Zack Losco and got just that. With Penn trailing Cornell by 10-7 after three quarters, Losco, a two-time first-team all-Ivy selection, scored four goals in the fourth quarter as the Quakers gained an 11-10 semifinal victory.

WINNING HAS become the tradition for Penn's women's lacrosse team. This year is no different. The Quakers compiled a 12-4 record, going 6-1 to win the Ivy League and secure their eighth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament. They play Canisius in the first round today at 4 p.m. in College Park, Md. This season's berth was not without trials and tribulations. The No. 7 Quakers had their share of distractions, which led to losses in games that could have propelled them into the national spotlight.
