  • College lacrosse: Johns Hopkins tops Maryland for second Big Ten title

The Virginia women's lacrosse team (9-9) earned its 23rd consecutive NCAA Championship bid, securing an at-large selection in the 26-team Championship field. The victor of Friday's game will advance to play No. 3-seed James Madison in the second round on Sunday, May 13.

Penn State and Maryland will meet for the second time this season. "I think the combination of support between the athletics department and our professors made this success possible".

In 2017, USC won the MPSF regular season and tournament title to advance to the NCAA Tournament as the automatic qualifier. We're going to have to study up on them a lot this week starting tonight and kind of figure out what our game plan is and what to look for.

The team went 8-7 past year, losing all four of its ACC matches. "They're tough, they're gritty, they play hard, they're well coached".

JOHNS HOPKINS 13, MARYLAND 9: Attackman Kyle Marr scored three goals and dished off two assists as the second-seeded Blue Jays upset the top-seeded Terrapins to capture its second Big Ten Conference championship. Penn State is looking to win its first Big Ten Tournament since 2015.

The Wildcats (10-5) received an at-large bid - likely the final one - and will play at fourth-seeded Duke (13-3) at 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, in a game televised on ESPNU.




"Last year helped us, helped our mentality to know what it's like to go on the road and play at this type of level with these stakes".

Maryland (18-1) earned the No. 1 seed over No. 2 North Carolina (15-3). There is no word yet on who the women will play. The Cavaliers lost their final three matches, falling to James Madison and rival Virginia Tech to end the regular season, then losing to Notre Dame in the ACC quarterfinals, 11-10.

The victor of Notre Dame's first-round contest against Denver will take on the victor of the first-round tilt between No. 2 seed Albany and Richmond in the quarterfinals May 19 in Hempstead, New York.

Meanwhile, Penn (13-4) reached the women's NCAA tournament for the 12th straight time.

Navy will face Johns Hopkins in the first round, and a Navy-Loyola rematch could be on the horizon in the second round.
