Baltimore, Md. - Loyola Director of Cross Country and Track Rick Woods announced on Tuesday morning that former NCAA Division III All-American Victoria Proctor will be joining the Greyhound track staff as an assistant coach, concentrating in sprints and jumps.
After a brief stint as Loyola Club track and field coach from 1990-1991, Proctor brings her impressive athletic and professional accomplishments back to the Greyhounds, who were made a Division I varsity squad in 2004.
As a runner at Frostburg State from 1983-1986, Proctor earned All-American honors a total of seven times in three different events - the 400-meter dash, the 4 x 100-meter relay, and the 4 x 400-meter relay.
Proctor racked up six All-ECAC awards for indoor and outdoor track while recording All-Mason Dixon conference honors in 10 indoor events and nine outdoor events throughout her career. The Brooklyn, NY native led Frostburg to six consecutive wins in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relays at the Mason Dixon Indoor and Outdoor Championships from 1984-1986.
In being named the Most Outstanding Runner at Frostburg from 1984-1986, Proctor set still-standing school records in the 4 x 400 relay with a time of 3:48.60 and in the 300-meter dash with a time of 42.6 seconds.
Proctor has competed in both the 100th Boston Marathon and the 1996 Marine Corps Marathon since graduation and has picked up a second-degree brown belt in Kenpo Karate as well as a certification to teach CPR.
In 1986, Proctor graduated from Frostburg with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a minor in biology. Six years later, Proctor received a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Johns Hopkins University. Most recently, she earned a Masters degree in exercise physiology from the University of Maryland in 2002.
Victoria also attended the Baltimore School of Massage and is a professional massage therapist specializing in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Myofacial Release.
Proctor currently is employed at the Kennedy Krieger Institute for Children as a primary care staff nurse and resides in Baltimore.
