The accolades, awards and honors earned by the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the US Lacrosse Class of 2013 Hall of Fame are the product of stellar performances during careers on the fields of Baltimore-area area high schools and colleges.
The ceremony honoring Mickey Jarboe, Trish Dabrowski, Megan Riley Clark, Pete Taylor, Lorne Smith, Jen Breakey, Kara Carlin, Bob Martino, Suzanne Eyler Williams and Rick Wey was Jan. 19, at the Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix.
Between them, the 10 new inductees boast 26 All-America designations, four national championships, several Player of the Year nods and the drive and determination to make the most of their talents in the sport's hotbed.
Jarboe, a Calvert Hall grad, blossomed at the Naval Academy where he was a two-time First-Team All-America goalie in 1999 and 2000.
The Towson native was also the Division I Goalie of the Year both of those years and garnered a similar honor in the 2008 Major League Lacrosse season with the L.A. Riptide. Jarboe is currently an assistant coach with the Mids and lives in Annapolis.
Dabrowski's and Williams' careers at Loyola College are intertwining stories of success, given that the Greyhounds posted a remarkable 75-21 record — with a 24-2 conference mark — during their tenure together.
Dabrowski's 6.80 goals-against average and .591 save percentage helped her gain First-Team All-America goalie honors as a senior while three-time All-America selection Eyler (Williams) finished in the program's top-10 in goals, assists, caused turnovers and ground balls.
Wey was a standout faceoff specialis and First-Team All-America in 1977 and 1978 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. After five years playing for the Mt. Washington club team, the Calvert Hall alumnus was chosen as an alternate on the 1982 U.S. world team.
Martino was a First-Team Division III All-America at Washington College in the 1980s and went on to play professionally in the now-defunct Major Indoor Lacrosse League for the Baltimore Thunder and the Pittsburgh Bulls.
The Parkton resident also was a member of outstanding Mt. Washington Lacrosse Club teams for five years.
More than 30 years separate Gilman alumni Smith and Taylor, both of whom went on to win collegiate championships at Princeton and Navy, respectively.
Smith was part of three title-winning teams for the Tigers from 1996-98 and was an All-America selection all three years. He was also part of the 1996 U.S. Under-19 world championship squad.
Nicknamed "The Shot" by The Baltimore Sun in 1963, Taylor was the captain of Navy's unbeaten 1964 squad and, like Smith, was a three-time All-America choice.
Breakey was not content to earn Division III All-America at Franklin & Marshall, the Loch Raven High product who still lives in Towson, also did the same in Division I for Towson State after leading the Tigers in points as a junior and senior.
A two-year captain at Franklin & Marshall, former Park School standout Kara Carlin was a First-Team All-America with the Diplomats and played in the North-South All-Star game in 1998. She is currently the athletic director at St. Timothy's School.
Riley (Clark) starred at South River before attending James Madison University, grabbing two First-Team All-America selections and was named to the conference Silver Anniversary Team in 2010.
