The Chesapeake Bayhawks have resigned Ryan Tucker to a three-year deal, and attackman Jack Doyle for at least another season, the organization announced Thursday.
Midfielder Tucker has established himself in the league as one of best players in the game at utilizing his shot from the two-point arc. Doyle sustained an injury during training camp that kept him out all of last season.
“Chemistry is one of the most valued aspects on the lacrosse field. The signing of these players allows us to build on the strong foundation that already exists in our locker room,” shared Brendan Kelly, Bayhawks owner. “These men demonstrate a great deal of determination and heart, and show up for the Bayhawks day in and day out.”
In the 2017 offseason, Tucker was added to the Bayhawks via trade with the Atlanta Blaze for midfielder Greg Coholan. Doyle was added before the 2018 season from the MLL Player Pool.
Tucker appeared in six games in his first season with the Bayhawks, fourth season in the MLL, scoring 7 goals, 3 assists, and 10 points. In 2018, the Towson native found his game, becoming one of the most feared players from the two-point arc.
