Slide Package: Thrill of the Hunt

Slide Package: Part 13

With NCAA tournaments underway, including two (Division II and III women) to be decided this week, LMO's photographers are in focus. Included in this week's "Slide Package" are three national champions - Nassau (NJCAA men), Catonsville (NJCAA Women) and Colorado State (WDIA) - whose coronations are sealed.

Also featured: Gettysburg survives a scare to advance to the NCAA Division III quarterfinals.

More highlights from this week's Slide Package:

NJCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship
Catonsville didn't want a repeat of last year's final, so it ripped off seven straight goals and never let Harford in the game on its way to a dominating, 13-6 victory in the 2008 NJCAA final. (Photos by Greg Wall)

MD3: Denison at Gettysburg
Gettysburg saw its postseason life flash before its eyes against Denison, until the Bullets' Joe Brody sent the game to overtime, where Ben Sufrin won the game for Gettysburg, 8-7, over the Big Red. The Bullets face Washington College in an NCAA quarterfinal Wednesday. (Photos by John Strohsacker)
