Order Tickets for the 2016 Greater Baltimore Lacrosse Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

BALTIMORE, MD – Three former Johns Hopkins lacrosse standouts are among the 10 individuals who will be inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the Lacrosse Hall of Fame in ceremonies scheduled for Saturday, January 16, 2016. The event will take place at the Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix, Maryland (5:30 pm – 10:30 pm).

Dave Black (Class of ’82) and Kyle Harrison (’05) from the Blue Jay men’s team will join Lacey Hentz-Headley (’05) from the Johns Hopkins women’s team in the 10-member class. Johns Hopkins fans interested in attending the event can visit the Greater Baltimore Chapter web site to order tickets.

Black was a four-year member of the Blue Jay men’s team 1979-82 and helped Johns Hopkins to a pair of NCAA Championships (1979, 1980) and a pair of national runner-up finishes (1981, 1982). A standout defenseman on four teams that combined to post a 51-5 record, Black earned All-America honors four times during his career at Homewood. He grabbed Second Team All-America as a freshman and senior and honorable mention as a sophomore and junior. Black’s son, Kelton, is a senior on the 2016 Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team.

Harrison led Johns Hopkins to a 55-6 record during his four-year career from 2002-05 and capped his career by guiding the Blue Jays to a 16-0 record and the NCAA Championship as a senior. He won the Tewaaraton and Enners Awards as the nation’s top player as a senior, twice earned the McLaughlin Award as the nation’s top midfielder and was selected as a First Team All-American twice (2004, 2005) and a Second Team All-American once (2003). A starter in all 61 games during his career, Harrison finished with 81 goals and 45 assists, grabbed more than 300 ground balls and won better than 61% of his career faceoffs.

Hentz-Headley was the unquestioned leader of a Johns Hopkins defense that anchored the Blue Jays’ run to the first two NCAA Division I Tournament appearances in school history (2004, 2005). A starter in 65 of the 66 career games she played, Hentz-Headley earned All-America honors from three different organizations during her career, including third team honors from the IWLCA as a senior. One of just two four-time First Team All-American Lacrosse Conference selections in school history, she remains among the Johns Hopkins Division I career leaders in caused turnovers (1st • 146) and ground balls (5th • 174).
