- INSIDE ATHLETICS
- FOR THE STUDENTS
For Chris Colbeck, winning has always been natural. The Baltimore native led the Greyhounds to the NCAA Quarterfinals in each of his four years, advancing Loyola to the Final in 1990. He captured NCAA titles later on, coaching with Princeton and Virginia, earning national coach of the year honors in Virginia's national championship season. Before all of that, he led his Under- 19 team to a World Championship in 1988.
An attackman at Loyola, Colbeck was a two-time All-America and a central piece of the Greyhound lacrosse program in the early 90's. He scored the game-winning goal versus Yale in overtime in the 1990 NCAA semifinal, in what many have hailed as the greatest game in Loyola men's lacrosse history. He was a co-captain his senior year and led Loyola in scoring as both a junior and senior. Colbeck, who scored 42 goals as a senior and 40 as a junior, ended his collegiate career with 108 goals and 135 total points.
