(Newser) – More than 2000 mourners crowded a Baltimore church yesterday for the funeral mass of 22-year-old Yeardley Love, and amid grief let up a University of Virginia sports chant she once memorably bungled. Instead of "One, two, three, together, Hoos," Love had counted to four—which the Charlottesville Daily Progress reports her lacrosse coach echoed in giving the eulogy for the UVa. student found beaten to death early Monday.

Lacrosse teammates, and friends from college and high school clogged the pews as Love was hailed as "truly remarkable," "legitimately awesome," and a focused youth who knew at age 9 she wanted to play lacrosse for UVa, reports the Baltimore Sun. The priest alluded to her accused murderer, George Huguely, saying, “At some point, we will have to forgive someone. Today may not be that day."
