The Loyola Greyhounds are the outright 2014 Patriot League champions!
First year members of the league, the Greyhounds wasted no time winning the conference tourney, moving them on to the NCAA Tournament for the 3rd time in 3 years.
Matt Sawyer led the team with four goals while five other Loyola players had two or more goals, and six others finished with multi-point games. Goal keeper Jack Runkel, who was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, earned 15 saves and had 27 in the championships. Runkel was named to the All-Tournament Team along with teammates Joe Fletcher, Brain Schultz and Justin Ward.
The Hounds move on to face the Bluejays of Johns Hopkins in Baltimore at noon EST on Saturday.
