Dec. 13, 2005

Baltimore, Md. - Linda Ohrin, a former Greyhound women's lacrosse player and current volunteer assistant coach will be inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame on January 28, 2006. Ohrin is one of 11 to be inducted this year.

"I'm so honored to be a part of such a prestigious class of athletes," Ohrin said. "It was just two years ago I was sitting in the audience while PJ Kesmodel, my mentor and Sue Heether, one of my coaches when I played at Loyola, were inducted never imagining I'd follow two influential people in my life just two years later. It's truly an honor."

Ohrin will begin her second season with the Greyhounds as the volunteer assistant coach this spring where she will work primarily with the Loyola goalkeepers.

Ohrin was a four-year starter at Loyola from 1990-94 were she earned All-America status. She was named to the regional All-America team in her junior and senior seasons as well as earning USWLA first-team All-America status as a junior and IWLCA/Brine Third Team All-America recognition as a senior. Ohrin led the Greyhounds to the NCAA Final Four in 1994.

Ohrin previously was the head women's lacrosse coach at Towson from 1998-2003. Prior to her work at Towson, she worked for three years as an assistant coach at Georgetown.
