Virginia's path to a national championship was neither smooth nor orthodox nor stylistically representative of one of lacrosse's most consistent programs.
Colin Briggs stood on the Virginia lacrosse team's sideline in street clothes Saturday afternoon wondering if he would finish the season as a bystander.
This month, as the vaunted Virginia lacrosse program suffered an atypical plunge, midfielder Colin Briggs recalled redshirt senior Todd Faiella (who began his career at Brown) standing in front of the Cavaliers and offering a message:
"I felt like I could come back and give everything I had," Briggs said. "I was able to get some opportunities, and my shot selection [was good]."
He helped Virginia claim its fifth national championship by scoring a career-high five goals in a 9-7 victory over Maryland.
