Northwestern is the Capitol — the center of the lacrosse world with the most power and wealth and coach Kelly Amonte Hiller is President Snow. (Kelly was one of our AA-Possible best player ever)4. Maryland
If the ACC is the careers, then Maryland is Cato, the strongest and most physical tribute of the group and always a favorite to win. The Terps captured the ACC crown with a 14-10 win over North Carolina on Monday, securing the conference’s automatic qualifier and a high seed in the Hunger Games. Maryland wrapped up the regular season with a 19-10 win over Georgetown on Wednesday.
Aside: The Terps have rocked some of the coolest uniforms all season, which are coming soon to the ILWomen.com Gear Zone. Of course, this means that Under Armour has to be Cinna.
Maryland: Terps move up to #3 after dominating the Tar Heels in the ACC tourney. (D-Lax) — Wondering if we will see another Maryland-North Carolina match-up in the NCAA quarters for a spot in the Final Four. The Terps move ahead of the Tar Heels with the ACC tourney win and settle at no. 4. (DallasLaxDad) — The Terps salvage their season with an ACC crown and I think at minimum the #4 seed. #4. (fanofall) — #4. ACC champs avoid hangover loss to G'town and prepare for the NCAA tournament. NCAA odds 4:1. (johnnyboy) — #4. Terps were scary good at times versus Heels. Clearly the most dominate run against a top 5 team this year. Up 13-7 with 12 to play! Ouch. Their stars are better than your stars. RPI is #3. (Justalaxdad) — Terps tuned up at just the right time. I was wondering what was going on in Terp Town, but it was just spreading their shells. My pick for the third spot on Strong Island, but seeding is going to be critical as the 4/5 game will be a whopper. (Lionwatcher) — #3. Despite initially approving the "Participation Medal/Chuck-e-Cheese" motion, the Terps have requested their Party be held at McDonalds. Turns out Chuck's signed with Converse and Ronald Protects His HOUSE! (Lucky Laxer) — Now 17-3, the Maryland Terps beat UNC in ACC play and chained down the Georgetown Bulldogs. A Hoya is a bulldog, right? Do we need to spend a lot of money at a fancy university to call bulldogs Hoyas? Channeling Andy Rooney? (MDLaxManiac) — #4. The Terps capture the #4 slot by the tiniest of margins over UNC based on their ACC championship victory. I really think these two are in a virtual tie, but LaxPower in its infinite wisdom doesn't allow ties by its pollsters. Soooo. (mytwokeepers) — No four (4). Up 1. Did what they needed to do in winning ACC. Remain close to top. Hey, an easy chip shot! (Rafterjack) — #4. With Schwarzmann playing brilliantly, with KEJ healthy and doing her thing, with the emergence of Aust as a great feeder, and with the young defense growing under Sanza's lead, Terps are steadily making the case that they, in fact, are the team to beat. (slides2) — The Terps nice run through the ACC tourney threw a wrench into my "locked" top 4 NCAA seeds. The "new" NCAA #4 seed. (socrlaxdad) — #3. Your Turtles came up big with important win over Jack's pals. Oh, and they beat the Blue Meanies for the championship of the whole ACC!!!! (Turtles Lax) — Only two days after getting revenge on Blue Meanies they spank the Hoyas on Senior Night in the last ever match-up as those 11 miles are now a bottomless ego chasm apart!
