Oct. 29, 2010

BALTIMORE - Four Loyola University Maryland women’s lacrosse alumni have earned a place in the The Greater Baltimore Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame as Michelle Meyer Dwan, Krystin Porcella, Stephanie Roberts Radebaugh and Gina Roberts Ubriaco will be inducted as part of its Class of 2011 in a ceremony on January 22, 2011.

The induction will take place at a banquet at Grand Mason Lodge in Hunt Valley.

Michelle Meyer Dwan was named the CAA Player of the Year in 1996 and 1997, one of just two players in CAA women's lacrosse history to accomplish that feat. A three-time Brine/IWLCA All-American, Meyer is the school record holder in draw controls (180) and draw controls in a single-season (76, 1994) and was named National Midfielder of the Year in 1997. During Loyola's time in the CAA, Meyer ranked second in goals by Greyhounds and ninth overall in career goals (131). The Arnold, Md., native ranks seventh in program history in total points, with 190. She is also the wife of Loyola men’s lacrosse assistant coach Matt Dwan.

Krystin Porcella started four years on the defensive corps for Loyola, earning first team IWLCA All-America honors in 1998 after being named to the second team in 1997. Porcella led the Greyhounds in assists with seven in 1997 and was among the team’s leaders in ground balls and draw controls each of her four seasons. Her strong play helped her to spots on the United States national lacrosse team in 1996 and 1998. After her college career, Porcella returned to Loyola as an assistant coach. Next year, she will serve as the United States U19 women's lacrosse coach in the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship in Göttingen, Germany.

Stephanie Roberts Radebaugh was a first-team US Women's Lacrosse All-American in both 1996 and 1997 and ranks in the top 15 all-time at Loyola in draw controls with 80. Radebaugh was named a member of the CAA’s 25th Anniversary Team last January after scoring 38 goals and 14 assists for 52 total points in 66 games with Greyhounds from 1994-1997. Roberts also starred for the women’s soccer team during her time at Loyola.

Gina Roberts Ubriaco earned first team All-CAA honors for three straight years while playing for the Greyhounds, achieving the feat from 1992 to1994. Ubriaco led the team in goals in 1993 with 27 en route to amassing 112 goals and 40 points over her career. The Severna Park, Md. Native also led the team in draw controls (27) and ground balls (51) in 1993.

The four will join Joe Breschi, Tony Seaman, Quint Kessenich, Butch Marino, Michael Watson, and Anne Ensor as part of the Hall of Fame Class of 2011.
