ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI -- BYU's Lacrosse team entered the United States Intercollegiate Associates National Championship Tournament as a sixth seed contender, and came away victorious. The men's team played four games in four days and won the tourney, making them national champs for the second time out of their last four trips to the tournament.

In addition to winning the tournament, BYU was honored again as three team members took home MVP awards. Sophomore Rex Hardy was named USLIA National tournament MVP for his 12 goals and three assists. Junior Steve Austin was named Offensive MVP for his 13 goals, three assists, and 16 total tournament points. Senior goalie Dave Johnson was named Defensive MVP, saving 55 of 92 shots on goal.

Further kudos go to the BYU team members who were named to the USLIA All-Tournament team: Aaron Quiggle, Rex Hardy, Steve Austin, and Dave Johnson were placed on the All-Tournament first team, and Troy Taylor and Stuart Hunt were placed on the second team.

"Going to the national championship is going to be a tradition with this club," said co-captain Dan Murdock. "Never overlook a six seed."
