Severn School has hired one of the big names in local la- crosse in John Tucker to coach the Admirals' boys team.

Athletic director Charles Duckett made the announcement yesterday that Tucker will succeed Jamie McNealey, who resigned after five seasons.

"John brings a broad under- standing of the [Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association] lacrosse commuity, and has demonstrated success as an administrator, teacher and coach, " said Duckett.

Tucker, who was inducted into U.S. Lacrosse's Greater Baltimore Chapter Hall of Fame this year, has an extensive back- ground in the sport.

Tucker was formerly director of athletics and coach at Loyola High School. He won MIAA A Conference titles at Loyola and at Gilman. He was a three-time All-American at Johns Hopkins and played on the Blue Jays' 1984 NCAA championship team.

"Severn is blessed with tremendous leadership and quality young people," said Tucker, a full-time graduate student. "I want to be part of Severn School and its future."
