Jim Darcangelo and Bob Griebe will become the first Towson State alumni in the Lacrosse Hall of Fame when the induction ceremonies are held next Feb. 9. Both were selected in their first year of eligibility.
Their plaques and those of the four other inductees -- Alan Lowe, Arlie Marshall, Neville Smith and Ray Wood -- will be on display when the Hall of Fame opens its new headquarters at Johns Hopkins University next June.
Darcangelo, who began his career at Corning (N.Y.) East High, was twice Player of the Year in Division II-III while at Towson in the mid-1970s. He played for the United States in the World Championships in 1978, '82 and '86.
Griebe, who went to Deer Park High in New York, was Attackman of the Year in Division II-III in 1975. He played in the World Championships in 1978 and 1982.
Lowe, of Hempstead, N.Y., was a two-time All-American at Maryland and played on the Terps' 1967 national championship team. He captained the U.S. team in the 1974 World Championships.
Marshall, who played for Southern High and Johns Hopkins, played club lacrosse for 12 years. He is a longtime coach who headed the U.S. team that successfully defended its title in this year's World Championships in Australia.
Smith, who played box lacrosse in New York and Ontario, is considered the "grandfather of high school lacrosse in Connecticut." He is a 30-year member of the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
Wood began his lacrosse career at Forest Park High and was a member of the group that revived the sport at Washington College in 1948 after it had been abandoned in 1934. He led the country in scoring in 1948 and 1949, setting a national scoring record of 62 goals in '49.
