Boys Lacrosse

Gary Schreiber has resigned as Dulaney boys lacrosse coach after 27 seasons and has been replaced by former McDonogh coach Jake Reed.

"It's time," said Schreiber, 61, whose teams won seven 4A-3A state titles and five state-regional crowns over a 34-year career. "It's been a nice ride for I don't know how long I've been doing it. I'll play golf and enjoy my two grandchildren."

Reed, 51, who coached the Lions' defense last year, is a Dulaney graduate who was named The Sun's Coach of the Year for the second time in 2005 after leading McDonogh to its second Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title in 13 seasons at the school.

"I'm extremely excited to be back at Dulaney, [and] continue to lead them to state public school titles," said Reed, whose Lions will play defending MIAA A Conference champion Boys' Latin and have added Loyola and Robinson, a defending state champion from Virginia, to their schedule. "One of our goals will be to be ranked No. 1 in the entire Baltimore area."

Schreiber, who teaches chemistry at Dulaney, had guided the Lions to victories in five of the past seven 4A-3A state title games, including a run of four straight through 2003, as well as consecutive crowns in 1990 and '91 -- the first two years the lacrosse tournament became an official state championship.

Before 1990, when the boys lacrosse tournament was a state-regional format, Schreiber won championships at Pikesville in 1978, as well as others at Dulaney in 1980, '83, '86 and '89.

Dulaney also had a run of 56 consecutive public school victories, ending with a 10-9 loss to Severna Park in double overtime in the 2004 state semifinals, as well as a run of 73 consecutive wins against Baltimore County rivals, ending with last season's one-goal loss to Franklin in the county title game.
