1. Loyola

Eastern College Athletic Conference
<br><br>
Last season: 18-1, NCAA tournament champion
<br><br>
Coach: Charley Toomey (eighth season, 64-35)
<br><br>
<b>Top returning scorer</b>
<br><br>
Mike Sawyer, senior A (52 goals, 10 assists)
<br><br>
<b>Other key returnees</b>
<br><br>
Joe Fletcher, junior D (41 ground balls, 26 caused turnovers)
<br><br>
Josh Hawkins, senior SSDM (6, 2; 63 ground balls, eight caused turnovers)
<br><br>
Scott Ratliff, senior LSM (12, 7; 88 ground balls, 37 caused turnovers)
<br><br>
<b>Key newcomers</b>
<br><br>
Harry Kutner, senior M
<br><br>
Blake Burkhart, sophomore F/O
<br><br>
Zach Herreweyers, freshman A
<br><br>
Outlook: The graduation of attackman Eric Lusby (Severna Park) and his left-handed howitzer is significant, but Toomey is hoping that junior Brian Schultz, sophomore Nikko Pontrello or Herreweyers can fill in. Junior goalie Jack Runkel anchors a defense headlined by Fletcher, Hawkins and Ratliff.
