Gary, Paul Gait, 8 others named to Hall of Fame


Gary and Paul Gait are among 10 new inductees to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

The Gait twins, from Syracuse, are members of the hall's 48th class announced yesterday by US Lacrosse, along with Mildred Barnes, Jack Emmer, Norm Engelke, Susie Ganzenmuller, Tom Haus, Dottie Hayden, Mandy (Moore) O'Leary and Gillian Rattray.

The honorees will be enshrined on Nov. 12 at the Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley.

Their plaques will be in the Lacrosse Museum and National Hall of Fame at US Lacrosse headquarters at Johns Hopkins University.

Candidates must have been out of college for 15 years.

The Gaits, from Victoria, British Columbia, were both three-time All-Americans at Syracuse and earned numerous honors as professional players.

Lacrosse magazine named them to its All-20th Century Team, and the NCAA named them to its 25th Anniversary Team.
