Saint James junior midfielder Madison Fahey was all Smithsburg's girls lacrosse team feared she would be on Saturday afternoon. Fahey had seven goals and two assists, including four scores in the Saints' game-opening 7-1 run as Saint James never trailed in an 18-14 victory over the Leopards. “We built off of that. She established the momentum,” said Saints coach Katherine Dyson. “We knew going in that she would be their goal-scorer,” said Smithsburg assistant coach Dave Duvall - filling in as the head coach for Jessica Klinger, who's due to give birth soon.

Throwing only two strikes to the first three batters in the opposing lineup is not a good indication of how things might fare. Saint James starter Ben Holland walked the first three batters in the Mercersburg Academy lineup and each scored in a three-run first inning. Four innings later, players shook hands after Mercersburg had recorded a 16-0 victory over the Saints, who return to action Wednesday at home against Flint Hill. “You can't start a game the way we did and make it competitive,” Saint James coach Mick Kerns said.

This was definitely no April Fool's joke. The Saint James Saints had a perfect 7-0 record as they came into Thursday's Mid-Atlantic Conference baseball game against the Maret Frogs. But the Frogs leaped on top of the Saints and beat them 17-1 to knock them from the undefeated ranks. The game was stopped after five innings because of the 10-run rule. “Maret pounded the ball,” Saint James coach Mickey Kerns said. “We made a few costly errors. The game was pretty much over after the first two innings.

ST. JAMES - The Saint James boys lacrosse team faced something it hadn't seen yet this season - a zone defense played by Mid-Atlantic Conference foe St. Andrews - and beat it with unselfish teamwork. Nine players scored at least one goal as the Saints spread the ball and found enough holes in St. Andrews' defense to earn an 11-7 victory on a chilly Tuesday evening. Connor Abeles had two goals and an assist, Austin Fahey also had two goals and Kyle Neale and Jacob Thompson had a goal and two assists each to lead Saint James (4-2, 1-0)

Distance became a problem for Paul Easton. He hasn't lost the drive to coach basketball, but his drive to get to where he coached basketball was a little much. Easton resigned as boys basketball coach at Saint James last week following two years of commuting from his home in Herndon, Va. “Making a commute like this takes a toll on you and your family after two years,” Easton said. “It was a tough decision, with the passion for basketball I have, to make. It was more than just about basketball.” The Saints finished 13-14 with a toughened schedule this season following a 17-10 record in Easton's first year after succeeding Mike Brooks.
