Virginia women's lacrosse coach Julie Myers says her team was emphatic in its desire to continue the season after a teammate was found slain last week.
Myers says the team decided last Tuesday to honor Yeardley Love by playing after discussing it at a player's home in Charlottesville.
The 22-year-old Love was found dead in her apartment early last Monday. George Huguely of the men's lacrosse team has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in her death.
Myers and the team attended Love's funeral in Baltimore Saturday. She says they have spent a lot of time together in the past week, and that each of the emotional gatherings leaves them feeling closer to Love and helps in the healing process.
