Loyola of Maryland earned the NCAA men's lacrosse national championship after beating the University of Maryland, 9-3, on Monday.
The victory comes three months after the Greyhounds began the season upset at being unranked in preseason polls.
"We knew what we had in our locker room through the whole year. It's just been an unbelievable journey," attackman Eric Lusby told reporters.
This was the first NCAA title for Loyola, who finished the season 18-1. The Greyhounds were playing in the title game for the first time since losing to Syracuse in 1990 -- when current coach Charley Toomey was the Greyhounds' goalie.
