As the Terps move into the Post Season for Lacrosse, once again the story on the field is dwarfed by the events off of it. The Murder of one UVA female Lacrosse player, by a member of the UVA Men’s team is a story that doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. And it shouldn’t. The story is a real tradegy that has left a young woman’s life cut short. But regardless of the misfortune, the sport must move on.
And that is exactly what is going to happen this weekend. The Terps earned a #3 seed and will face Hofstra this Saturday at noon in College Park (ESPNU). The Terps finished the season 11-3 and are looking to move deep into May. The Terps are favored to make it to the Final Four on Memorial Day Weekend, much like previously mentioned UVA. The Cav’s earned a #1 overall seed and will play Mount St. Mary’s. Syracuse took the #2 seed, while the 4th seed went to UNC. For those keeping score that is 3 of the top four spots going to ACC.
Over on the woman’s side of the bracket, the Lady Terps took the number 1 overall seed. The Terps will face Marist on Saturday at Ludwig field. This is the Terps first overall #1 seed since 2001, when they last took home the title. We here at Turtledroppings wish both the Men and Woman good luck going into this weekend, and hopefully beyond!
Anyone else hear the story about Ken Griffey Jr. falling asleep in the Seattle Clubhouse during a game? It sounds like the set up to a joke about the M’s struggling offense, but it is actually a true story. Check it out on ESPN Here and try not to crack up while reading the article. The funny thing is, if this was Barry Bond’s I would be completely offended, and probably be in the middle of a rant right now, but because Griffey is so likeable, all you can do is smile!
