Boys' Latin Lacrosse Coach Set To Retire
Updated: Thursday, June 26 2014, 04:01 PM EDT
BALTIMORE, MD – (June 26, 2014) – The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland (Boys’ Latin) announced today that Bob Shriver, Class of 1969, will retire as Head Coach of its varsity lacrosse team at the conclusion of the Lakers’ 2015 lacrosse season.
Coach Shriver, 63, today announced his intent to retire at the end of the 2015 season following an undefeated 2014 season for the Boys’ Latin lacrosse team, which included winning the 2014 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) “A” Conference Championship and securing the rank of the No. 1 high school lacrosse team in the nation.
“Coach Shriver has been an integral member of Boys’ Latin for the past 39 years, serving as head coach of the varsity lacrosse team for the past 35 years. We appreciate the many contributions that he has made to our young men and to our community, and I thank him for his devotion to our school and his dedication to our students,” stated Christopher Post, Headmaster of Boys’ Latin.
“Our varsity team had a magical run through this past season. They finished with the MIAA “A” Conference Championship title, an undefeated 18-0 record for a perfect season in the record books and a #1 national ranking. The team itself was comprised of outstanding young men who played with joy, grit and exemplary sportsmanship. We could not be more proud of, and happy for, our team and school,” Post concludes.
Since Shriver’s first year as Head Coach in 1980, the Boys’ Latin varsity lacrosse team has been consistently ranked among the most competitive teams locally, culminating in an overall win-loss record of 490 – 135. Coach Shriver led the Lakers to six (6) MIAA “A” Conference Championships: 1985, 1988, 1997, 2002, 2006, and 2014. In three (3) of those seasons – 1997, 2006 and 2014 – Boys’ Latin completed the season undefeated and ranked as the No. 1 high school lacrosse team in the country.
Coach Shriver has been honored multiple times as the Maryland Scholastic Association MSA / MIAA Coach of the Year and several times as the Maryland State Lacrosse Coach of the Year. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame at his alma mater, Washington College, in 1992 and into the U.S. Lacrosse Greater Baltimore Chapter Hall of Fame in 1998. Just recently, Coach Shriver was named both by The Baltimore Sun/Baltimore Messenger and Varsity Sports Network as “Lacrosse Coach of the Year.”
Coach Shriver commented, “Announcing my retirement following the conclusion of the 2015 season is bittersweet. I don’t know that there’s ever a ‘perfect time’ to make an announcement like this. By doing it now, my hope is that Boys’ Latin can search for and name a new coach, and we can strive to make the transition as seamless as possible.
"It has been my distinct honor and privilege to work at my alma mater as both a teacher and coach for the last 39 years. I have been beyond fortunate to work with so many dedicated faculty members, coaches and, most importantly, young men who have done remarkable things in the classroom and on the lacrosse field. I would like to thank all those former and current players, coaches, alumni, parents and Boys’ Latin supporters for the effort and commitment they have provided Boys’ Latin and especially the Boys’ Latin lacrosse program. Boys’ Latin is a place I have and always will call home."
A search process for Coach Shriver’s successor will commence in Fall 2014. According to Headmaster Christopher Post, “We will be doing a thoughtful and thorough search for Bob's successor to ensure a seamless transition and the continued long-term success of the varsity lacrosse program at Boys’ Latin.”
