    The UVA lacrosse teams compete for the first time since the death of teammate Yeardley Love. Fellow teammate George Huguely is charged with her murder.

    The University of Virginia's lacrosse teams return to the field this weekend, for the first time since the murder of teammate Yeardley Love. Love, a UVA senior, was found beaten to death in her off-campus apartment earlier this month.

    Love's former boyfriend, George Huguely was a midfielder on the men's team. He's being held on first-degree murder charges in the case and is due back in court next month. Huguely had attended Landon School in Bethesda, where he was the fifth-leading goal scorer in school history.

    George Huguely's family attended his first hearing in the death of Yeardley Love, which Huguely watched via closed-circuit TV.

    The men's team is the number-one seed in the NCAA tournament. They take on Mount Saint Mary's today in first-round games.

    Love was a defender for the women, and had started in three games this season. The women's team is the sixth seed and plays Towson University tomorrow. She was "a person who was described as an angel by teammates and friends," said athletics director Craig Littlepage.
