BALTIMORE – UAlbany returners Lyle Thompson and Blaze Riorden have been named 2015 Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Yearbook Preseason All-Americans, the publication announced on Tuesday.

Thompson earned First Team All-America preseason honors, while Riorden picked up Honorable Mention All-America.  The All-America list was announced on the IL website and will be in the Face-Off Yearbook.

Thompson had arguably the top season ever in Division I lacrosse last season, earning co-Tewaaraton Trophy honors with 51 goals and 77 assists for 128 points, the highest single season total in DI lacrosse history.  He scored at least four points in all 18 games last season, including 11 contests with at least seven points.

Riorden, the All-America East First Team goalkeeper last season, finished third in Division I with 16.27 saves per game and 12th in DI with a 54.9 save percentage.  He earned all 12 victories for UAlbany in goal and had at least nine saves in 16 of the team’s 18 contests, including 13 saves with just six goals in the win over Loyola.

Yesterday, the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team was ranked #13 in the publication’s preseason Face-Off Top 20.
