Two standouts from the class of 2001, Kevin Bromby and Duncan Woodard, were inducted on Saturday as the newest members of the Legends of Lafayette Lacrosse during half-time in the Leopards’ home game against Boston University. Director of Athletic Development Josh Azer and Director of Athletics Sherryta Freeman honored both men, with Bromby present.

As an attack during the Leopards run from 1998 through 2001, Bromby rose from a solid starter as a freshman to a spot on the First-Team All-Patriot League team as a senior. He scored 114 goals and had 86 assists as a Leopard, ranking him fourth on Lafayette’s all-time list for goals and points. His per game performance ranked him sixth in the nation in goals and 14th in points in his cap year with the team.

Woodard was one of the best Lafayette goalies to ever defend its net. The 769 shots he stopped in his career – including 229 as a senior – place him first in the program’s history. He was an All-Patriot League selection for four years, including two years on the First Team. He was awarded the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year in his senior year, in which he saved .611% of shots on goal, ranking him tenth nationally. Woodard is also remembered for his highly unusual offensive contribution – an end-to-end run to score a goal against Stony Brook his junior year.

Both Bromby and Woodard have gone on to successful careers in business since their graduation from Lafayette. Bromby is Associate Director, Strategic Corporate Finance at Biogen, and Woodard is Vice President at Spaulding & Slye Investments.

Lafayette Lacrosse also hosted the first Annual McCrae Williams Memorial Can Drive during both the men’s and women’s games against Boston on Saturday. The cans collected were donated to Safe Harbor though Athletes Care. McCrae Williams died early this year after a head injury following a day of drinking. He would have started his first lacrosse season at Lafayette in 2018.
