Gregory Lane

Gregory was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1995. His citation is below:

“No player played the point better and he made Don Kelly’s fast break both feared and beautiful to watch.” So spoke Hurtt Deringer, retired editor of the Kent County News and unofficial caretaker of lacrosse statistics for Washington College.

Over the 1971-74 period, Lane’s play brought out the best in the game as he amassed the all-time point total – 275 points – on 158 assists (second to John “Hessy” Howard) and 117 goals (ninth all-time). As a freshman, he led his team with 30 goals and 15 assists and kept getting better. In 1972, he had 28 goal and 35 assists; in 1973, 30 goals and 51 assists; and during his senior year, 29 goals and 57 assists.

Greg was Honorable Mention All-American in 1972, a second team selection in 1973, and a first team selection in 1974. He represented Washington College in the annual USILA North/South All-Star Game in 1974. Voted Most Valuable Lacrosse Player in 1973 and 1974, he also received the distinguished Washington College Athletic Council Award of 1974.

Greg has spent twenty some years of his professional life with the United Airlines and has operated his own custom woodworking business. Sharing his love of the game with young people, he established the Plainedge Midget Lacrosse Association and has served as the coach of third and fourth grade teams.

Washington College considers it a privilege and pleasure to induct Greg Lane into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this 30th day of September, 1995.
