BALTIMORE - Former Maryland All-American Sandra Lanahan Zvosec was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame last weekend in Hunt Valley, Md.
Lanahan Zvosec was a two-time All-American and helped guide the Terps to their first national title in 1981. The former US National Team member landed on the ACC 50th Anniversary team and helped the US to a World Cup title in 1982.
"Little did I know when I picked up that stick in ninth grade, because I had to in gym class, that I would be here," Lanahan Zvosec at last Saturday's induction ceremony. "I kind of have stepped outside the world of lacrosse and for the past 20 years and have been a wife and a mother. When the hall of fame letter came, I was sending my youngest off to college and I was thinking 'Where do you go from here?' Getting that letter reminded me that there was life before children, and there is life after children."
The National Lacrosse Hall of Fame has annually inducted individuals based on outstanding lacrosse achievement and/or contribution since 1957. The mission of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame is to honor men and women, who by their deeds and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of the sport of lacrosse to our way of life.
