ALBANY, N.Y. -- It’s not every season that a smaller program like UAlbany lacrosse can capture national media attention, but that's exactly what the Great Danes did before ultimately losing to Notre Dame, 14-13.
UAlbany men's lacrosse team took the nation by storm this year, mainly because of three relatives, Lyle, Miles, and Ty Thompson, who have wanted to play together since they can remember.
But although Lyle and Miles had record setting seasons, and individual success, they say it's not as sweet because the team did not achieve the ultimate goal.
"You know, I just like to think positive...I play the game, I always say that I play the game for the creator, and to come out here and entertain him and play to the best of my ability,” said Lyle.
"You know right after they scored, I tried to think positive, but I really couldn't because it's really my last college career, and my last college, college game with my brother and we're kind of close,” said Miles.
"We'll get through it. We always say, you gotta accept the outcome no matter win or lose and move on,” said head coach Scott Marr.
Only one Thompson is returning next year – Lyle. With him returning to the Great Danes roster, they could have a shot of making it to the final four next year.
