Roundup: Mount St. Mary's men's lacrosse can't overcome Manhattan in 8-7 loss

  • Northeast Conference Last season: 6-9, missed NCAA tournament Coach: Tom Gravante (19th season, 127-155) Top returning point-getter: Clayton Wainer, junior M (4, 0) Other key returnees Mark Hojnoski, junior A (2, 1) Chris Klaiber, senior GK (11.57 goals-against average and a .449 save percentage) Kyle OBrien, junior D (19 ground balls, 11 caused turnovers) Key newcomers R.J. Beil, freshman F/O Ryan Lamon, freshman A Bryden Pelletier, senior M Outlooks: The Mountaineers loaded up last year in an attempt to capture the league tournament and go to their first NCAA postseason since 2010, but they finished outside of the top four and failed to qualify for the conference playoffs. The returning team lacks experience and firepower, but Gravante thinks Mount St. Mary's has the potential to shock some outsiders.
