MIAA Coach Moves West
St. James (Md.) in Washington County, Maryland might be a small school, but they are getting a former National Lacrosse League Coach-of-the-Year and a coach with a decorated career coaching MIAA A Conference programs.
John Tucker who won 127 games* and four MIAA championships with Gilman (Md.) and Loyola-Blakefield (Md.) is taking over the boys’ program, which is located in Hagerstown, Md.
Tucker will serve as St. James’ Director of Admissions and take on coaching duties.
“It’s a real opportunity to do something special,” Tucker told the Herald Mail. “Saint James is really committed to everything they do, starting with academics and the culture of service at the school. There’s excellence from the top down, and over the years it’s had tremendous tradition. I’d like to be a small part of it.”
