He leaves the Cougars as the school's career points leader (291) after tallying 120 during his senior campaign (45 goals, 75 assists). Sweet also competed for the Tar Heel Lacrosse Club.

The RMU men's lacrosse team finished the 2013 season at 8-7, marking the fifth-straight season the Colonials have ended the year with a winning record.

Meagher broke a single-season school record with 28 caused turnovers, which helped the Colonials lead the nation in that department. Rankel became the first Colonial freshman to earn a first or second team all-league award as he tallied 33 points (21 goals, 12 assists) in his first season donning the RMU colors.
