Gregory Baker

Class of 1985

Gregory was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2005. His citation is copied below:

An outstanding varsity athlete at Arundel High School and Anne Arundel Community College, Greg Baker came well prepared to continue his remarkable success at Washington College. Greg was inducted into the Arundel High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 1997 for his participation in football and lacrosse. He was the All-County Goalie on Arundel’s first State Championship lacrosse team, and, in 1981, as a member of the AACC lacrosse team, he was selected to the National Junior College Athletic Association All-American team.

As a Shoreman, Greg was a member of the first Washington College team to defeat Navy, and later set a NCAA record of 30 saves in the 1982 championship game. In 1983 he was selected as a Third Team All-American and in 1984 he accumulated the following prestigious awards: First Team All-American, NCAA Division III Outstanding Goalie and NCAA Division III Player of the Year. He also served as captain of the 1984 team that voted him Most Valuable Player. Greg represented the College in the annual North/South All-Star game in 1984.

The lacrosse standout and campus leader—he was president of the Lambda Pi Delta Fraternity—never lost his love for the game. He has coached lacrosse as an assistant at Washington College, Georgetown University and St. Albans. And he has played for the Potomac Lacrosse Club, the Alexandria Lacrosse Club and in the Harford County Summer League. Greg is a graduate of the School of Law at Ohio Northern University and is presently employed as Special Council with the Federal Election Commission.

Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Gregory R. Baker into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this seventh day of October, 2005.
