Majak Yai leaned over the book and carefully sounded out the words. "And she can turn people into st-stone and do all kinds of horrible things," he read aloud. He finished the chapter, closed the book and smiled. "I think it's better than before, right?" he asked his tutor. Just seven months ago, Yai, 24, did not speak English.

Women's lacrosse faces reigning NCAA champions Sunday

The University of Richmond women's lacrosse team will start the season Sunday at home in a match-up against the reigning NCAA champions, the University of Maryland Terrapins. The game, which begins at 2 p.m., is the team's first in Robins Stadium. "The day is definitely going to be a whirlwind," head coach Stephy Samaras Mantziaras said. The team is excited to play in the new stadium, senior captain Bria Eulitt said, but Maryland is the toughest opponent it will face all season.

The team obviously has a lot going for it, Mantziaras said. "Right now, we're the only ones that believe that we can win," she said. Junior captain Mary Flowers said the Spiders had high expectations. "I think we can definitely hang with them, and we're going to play our hardest," she said. The Spiders were picked to finish second in the Atlantic-10 Conference this year - just one point behind the University of Massachusetts - in a preseason coaches' poll. The team is especially strong this year, Eulitt said. "We've only lost two seniors so we've been building with this core group now for two solid years," Eulitt said.

URPD teaches self-defense classes to women on campus
