Ronald Regan, Jr.
Ronald was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. His citation appears below:
Ron Regan’s high school résumé included scoring records in lacrosse at Boys’ Latin in Baltimore and then Bainbridge Naval Academy Prep School, easily catching the attention of Washington College coach Don Kelly.
Kelly would later say that Ron was one of the most outstanding players he had coached. In four years on the Chestertown campus, Ron totaled 98 goals and 130 assists. He played on three teams that won the Strobhar Division of the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association in the era before there were NCAA Divisions I, II and III. The 1966 team was ranked tenth in the nation; the 1967 team was ranked fifth.
As a freshman in 1966, Ron scored 32 goals and handed out 26 assists. He was placed on the all-division Strobhar team and the all-state second team, while earning honorable mention on the All-America team.
The following year, on a team that won 11 of 12 games and again headed the Strobhar Division, Ron led the fifth-ranked Shoremen with 74 points on 23 goals and 51 assists. He repeated on the all-division Strobhar team and the all-state second team, and moved up to the All-American third team.
In 1968, as a junior, Ron served as a captain on a Washington College team that won a third straight Strobhar Division, which had been renamed the Atlantic Division. He scored 27 goals and distributed 28 assists. At the end of the season, he was named to the first team of the all-state and South Atlantic all-division all-star teams. He also was named a third-team All-American.
Ron punctuated a brilliant four-year career with selection to the North-South Senior Lacrosse Game in 1969, when he totaled 16 goals and 25 assists. Again he was placed on the all-state, South Atlantic and All-American teams.
A triple-threat athlete in high school, Ron also played varsity basketball at Washington for four years. Although not a starter, he contributed significantly as one of the first players off the bench.
After graduating from Washington College in 1969, Ron played club lacrosse for five years for the Baltimore Athletic Club. He also coached the Catonsville Lacrosse Club for 20 years and coached the junior varsity at Mount St. Joseph prep school in Baltimore.
Off the field, Ron has served as a trust officer at Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust Co. and as an agent for State Farm Insurance.
Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Ron Regan into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this sixth day of October, 2006.
