Health is top priority for Loyola Maryland men's lacrosse in advance of Saturday's opener

No. 11 Loyola Maryland and No. 7 Virginia will open their respective seasons Saturday in just one of two Top-20 matchups this weekend. (No. 18 Navy at No. 4 Maryland is the other.) And coach Charley Toomey said the Greyhounds are getting healthier for the game.

“We’re right now as healthy as we’ve been,” he said Wednesday morning. “Minus a couple guys who are battling the flu, we anticipate them being back. The team that took the field last Saturday against Richmond [in a scrimmage], we feel like that’s the group of guys who are going to be ready to play on Saturday. I think we’re going to have our full complement.”
