Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola men's lacrosse team is back in the NCAA Tournament and will play at Albany this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The Greyhounds earned an at-large berth in the 2007 postseason with a 7-5 overall record in the regular season and a second-place finish in the ECAC.
"We're just happy to be back," says Loyola Head Coach Charley Toomey. "I give a lot of credit to this senior class for stepping up and putting Loyola Lacrosse back on the map. Albany will be a tough opponent, but right now, I'm just happy to still be playing."
Loyola's inclusion into the NCAA Tournament marks its 15th appearance in program history. The Greyhounds have advanced to 12 Quarterfinals, two Semifinals and one Championship Game appearance since 1988.
The Greyhounds last appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2001 and advanced to the Quarterfinals with an 11-9 win over Georgetown in the First Round. The 'Hounds then dropped a one goal decision to Princeton in the Quarters.
This year's bracket will put the winner of Sunday's game in Albany in the Princeton Regional. Loyola will co-host the NCAA Championships Memorial Day weekend at M&T Bank Stadium.
