GREATER SEVERNA Park native Milford Marchant is a member of the U.S. Lacrosse Team that is competing in the International Lacrosse Federation World Championships through July 25 at the Johns Hopkins University.
The 23-year-old midfielder played soccer and lacrosse with the Green Hornets and lacrosse under coach Rob White at Severn School, where he was a high school All-American his senior year. He was also named All-Metro and 1992 Co-Player of the Year in Anne Arundel County.
From Severn, Marchant went on to star at Hopkins, where, while majoring in biology, he was a four-time All-American.
"One thing the game of lacrosse means to me is family," said Marchant, a collegiate academic All-American. "I have made a tremendous amount of friends. When I run into guys I've played with or against, there's always time to talk. The lacrosse community is a tight-knit group that looks out for each other.
"I've done OK in school. Lacrosse has given me the opportunity to attend a world-renowned institution and a means to pay for my education."
Marchant is completing graduate studies in physiology and biophysics at Georgetown University, after which he plans to attend medical school.
The U.S. lacrosse team is trying to keep the title it won four years ago at the last World Championships in Manchester, England.
This year's tournament in Baltimore, the first in the United States in 16 years, is the federation's largest world championship ever.

A Mohler gathering
For a pretty picture, how about the family portrait of the Mohler clan in a recent get-together to celebrate the arrival of the latest member?
Four generations welcomed the new representative of the fifth generation, Daniel Raymond Scheib Jr., son of Daniel and Lisa Dieringer Scheib of Edgewater.
Also vying for baby Daniel's attention were his grandmother Suzie Dieringer of Davidsonville; his great-grandmother Sally Norton of Catonsville; and his great-great-grandmother Riggie Mohler of Catonsville, matriarch of the family.
