Rubeor to coach boys lacrosse at St. Mary's; Hickman to head girls team

August 30, 2012|By Glenn Graham

Loyola Blakefield and 2008 Virginia grad Ben Rubeor has been named the new boys lacrosse coach at St. Mary's, while Severna Park and 2006 Vanderbilt grad Kate Hickman takes over the girls program.

Rubeor, who was an All-American and a 2008 Tewaaraton Trophy finalist at Virginia, is a current starting attackman for Chesapeake Bayhawks. He has prior coaching experience at Maclay School in Tallahassee, Fla.

After a fine playing career at Severna Park, Hickman earned All-America status at Vanderbilt.  For the past six years, she has served as varsity assistant at Severna Park.

"I'm extremely excited to have the opportunity to lead the St. Mary's girls lacrosse program back to its place as being one of the best in the state. The St. Mary's lacrosse program has had a history of not only success, but dominance, and I have every intention of restoring that quality to this program, to the school, and to my players. I'm ready to get the ball rolling, both on and off the field, with these ladies," Hickman said in the school's news release.

Having played in the demanding Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Assocation A Conference with the Dons, Rubeor, who replaces former coach Rob Chomo, is looking forward to the challenges ahead leading the Saints. 

"I feel blessed to join a school and a program with a great history and tradition, and I am excited to work with this group of young men as we face the challenges of playing in the MIAA," he said.
