MIAA Coach Moves West
St. James (Md.) in Washington County, Maryland might be a small school, but they are getting a former National Lacrosse League Coach-of-the-Year and a coach with a decorated career coaching MIAA A Conference programs.
Tucker will serve as St. James’ Director of Admissions and take on coaching duties.
“It’s a real opportunity to do something special,” Tucker told the Herald Mail. “Saint James is really committed to everything they do, starting with academics and the culture of service at the school. There’s excellence from the top down, and over the years it’s had tremendous tradition. I’d like to be a small part of it.”

You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
