The Terriers, now in their ninth year, are heading into their first NCAA tournament.

For the first time in program history, the Boston University men’s lacrosse team is heading to the NCAA Tournament.

The top-seeded Terriers, in their ninth year as a program, outlasted Army West Point, 14-10, Sunday at Nickerson Field in the championship to clinch their first-ever Patriot League title. A thrilling 13-12 win over Lehigh in the semifinals on Friday made that possible.

The list includes many local players: Jett Dziama (Natick, Noble and Greenough), Anthony Forziati (Wakefield), Jack Collins (Marblehead, Avon Old Farms), Zach Travaglini (Winchester, Belmont Hill), Stephen Gaskill III (Chelsea, Noble and Greenough), Jason Child (Needham), Alex Gainey (Westwood, St. Sebastian’s, Johns Hopkins), Trey Brown (Hopkinton, Belmont Hill), Harry Friedman (Newton, Middlesex), Patrick Morrison (Franklin) and Brian Garrity (Norwell ).

Timmy Ley led the way with 4 goals against Army, Roy Meyer got 7 ground balls and caused 6 turnovers, and Matt Garber made 15 saves. The Terriers built a 7-5 halftime lead and used a 5-2 third quarter to take command before holding off the Black Knights late.

BU No. 16 will find out about their top seed and NCAA Tournament opponent on the draft show, which airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.
