Maryland women’s lacrosse team is intense, possessed

Alex Prewitt did a fine job explaining how intensely focused the top-ranked Maryland women’s lacrosse team is on the national championship entering Friday’s semifinals.

“They have a goal,” Coach Cathy Reese said, explaining why there was a muted celebration after the Terps’ quarterfinal win. “They’re on a mission, and that’s a piece of it. I’m like, ‘We need to celebrate our successes. This is huge that we’re going to the Final Four.’ But they’re on a mission.”

If you’d rather see a pictorial representation of that intensity, here ya go. Someone with the team sent along this photo from the Thursday night banquet at the Appleford Estate near Philadelphia. That’s something, anyhow.
