BALTIMORE - Four Loyola University Maryland men’s lacrosse players – seniors Tyler Albrecht and David Manning and juniors Jack Carrigan and Brian Sherlock – have been named team captains for the 2016 season, Head Coach Charley Toomey announced today.
The quartet was named by a vote of their peers and coaches. Albrecht, Carrigan and Manning will all be first-year captains, while Sherlock is in his second year.
“We are looking forward to Tyler, David, Brian and Jack leading our locker room this year,” Toomey said. “They have shown this fall that they are committed leaders who are dedicated to helping our team succeed.”
Albrecht, a midfielder from Oakville, Ontario, was third on the team in goals scored (23) last season after starting all 15 games on the Greyhounds’ first midfield unit. He also ran wings on the faceoff unit and picked up 35 ground balls. During his three years at Loyola, Albrecht has scored 35 goals and assisted 10 while tallying 67 ground balls.
Carrigan moved into a starting role on the Greyhounds’ close defense last year after playing on man-down and other situations as a freshman in 2013. The Rockville Centre, New York, native was in the opening 10 for all 15 games in 2014 and led the team with 20 caused turnovers. He finished fourth on the team with 41 ground balls and also was recognized on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
Manning will return to the field in 2016 after missing the 2015 campaign with an injury. The fifth-year senior from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was a Patriot League Academic Honor Roll player in 2015 after starting all 16 games on close defense as a junior in 2014. He finished that season with at least one ground ball in all but one game he played and tallied 24 during the year.
Sherlock returns as a captain for the second year after earning All-Patriot League First Team honors in 2014 and 2015. The Nissequogue, New York, native was second on the team in all three scoring categories in 2015: goals (29), assists (19) and points (48). Sherlock earned USILA All-America Honorable Mention as a sophomore after leading all Patriot League midfielders in goals scored.
