Former Loyola College All-American Mark Frye is one of 10 people named to the US Lacrosse Greater Baltimore Chapter’s Hall of Fame Class of 2014.
Frye is the last player in school history to earn All-America first-team honors in back-to-back seasons (1998-1999).
His 93 career goals rank 11th in school Division I history, while his 41 assists are tied for 21st.
Frye earned All-America second-team honors as a sophomore in 1997, finishing the season with 32 goals, 13 assists and 45 points. He then earned first-team laurels the next two seasons, recording 25 goals and 12 assists as a junior with 23 and 12 during his senior campaign.
Loyola won 42 games during Frye’s four years as a Greyhound; his teams reached the NCAA tournament all four seasons and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals in his final three years.
Frye is still near the top in several career categories with the Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse, first in Baltimore and then Washington. Frye played in 73 games with the Bayhawks (4th all time), totaled 142 points (5th), scored 75 goals (8th), 46 assists (6th), 21 two-point goals (2nd) and picked up 108 ground balls (tied for 7th).
He also played briefly in the Canadian Football League – he was a standout football player, as well, at Severna Park – seeing action in exhibition games with the British Columbia Lions.
