Men’s Lacrosse Alumni Game Set For October 5th

ALBANY, N.Y. – Defending America East Men’s Lacrosse Tournament Champions, the University at Albany, announced that it will play its alumni game on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 1 pm (time is subject to change). The Great Danes will play the game on John Fallon Field.

UAlbany finished the 2013 season by winning its fifth America East Title and reached the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time. The 13-4 Great Danes were carried on offense by three special individuals, Lyle, Miles and Ty Thompson. The Thompson Trio put on what some could have dubbed as “The Greatest Attack On Turf”. Not only was UAlbany No. 1 in offense in the NCAA at 15.94 goals per game, but the trio tallied the most points out of any other attacking group with 254 points.

Outside of the current Great Dane roster, UAlbany alum, Brett Queener, has been impressive at the pro level. Queener was named to his fourth Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game. The Penn Yann, N.Y. native was leading the majors with a .620 save percentage and was third with an 11.26 goals against average amongst goalkeepers at that point.

UAlbany will go into the 2014 seasons graduating just two of the eleven 2012 starters and push for its sixth America East Title in 12 seasons.
