Nine lacrosse greats were formally inducted as the newest members of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame Saturday evening during a festive celebration at The Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

The nine members of the Class of 2021 had to wait an extra year for their official recognition due to delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, but a sold out gathering of over 400 attendees provided ample evidence that the inductees still had plenty of supporters.

Three inductees – Sheehan Stanwick Burch, Ryan McClay, and John Pirro – were officially welcomed as truly great players, two others – Tony Resch (Penn Charter grad and former head coach, La Salle College High associate head coach) and Jenny Levy – were inducted as truly great coaches, one was a truly great official, Patty Daley, and three inductees – Beth Stone, Kris Snider, and Steve Stenersen – were honored as truly great contributors.

Resch has spent 30 years coaching with great success at all levels of the game, with multiple professional championships in both the National Lacrosse League and Major League Lacrosse, in addition to two gold medals with the U.S. Men’s team and four state championships as a high school coach at La Salle.

“I try not to over-complicate it as a coach,” Resch said. “I am very much about the fundamentals and about being a good teammate, working hard and learning and growing and trying to improve. That approach has served me pretty well at multiple levels.”

The National Lacrosse Hall of Fame, a program of USA Lacrosse, was established in 1957 to honor men and women who by their deeds as players, coaches, officials and/or contributors, and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of lacrosse to our way of life. Since its inception, over 450 lacrosse greats have been recognized in the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame & Museum, which is located at USA Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Maryland.
