Baltimore, MD – On Saturday, the Big-10 got a glimpse of a 19th-century rivalry that will become its newest next spring.
At a sold-out Homewood Field, the #9 Johns Hopkins Blue Jays (7-3) knocked off #2 Maryland (9-2), 11-6, in the latest installment of a series that first began in 1895. Maryland joins the Big-10 as a full member in 2014-2015 while the Johns Hopkins’ men’s lacrosse team will become an affiliate, leaving the 119-year-old rivalry intact.
The conference will be inaugurating lacrosse play in 2015. Participating teams include Maryland, Johns Hopkins, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan and Rutgers.

While Navy couldn’t build momentum after a close loss to Loyola two weeks ago, the Greyhounds proved they hadn’t lost theirs after the unexpectedly tight match.
After narrowly defeating the Mids in double OT in Annapolis on April 5, Loyola stormed back against Boston University (1-10) at Ridley Athletic Complex on Saturday for a 15-6 victory. With the win they earned the Patriot League regular-season title and a first round bye in the league tournament.
The Greyhounds are 11-1 overall and undefeated at 7-0 in the Patriot. They close out the regular season next week at home against Bucknell (7-6).
British Columbia native Wesley Berg had two goals and added two assists for the Pioneers.
Despite the loss, the Mids qualified for one of six Patriot League playoff spots.
