The varsity boys lacrosse head coach at Loyola Blakefield, Ben Rubeor has announced that he is stepping down after the 2018 season, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Rubeor, a 2004 graduate of Loyola Blakefield, cites the reason for his departure is because he’s moving to Boston to be closer to family.
Before taking the head coaching job at his alma later two years ago, Rubeor helped lead St. Mary’s Annapolis to their first MIAA-A conference title since the late 90’s.
In the Sun article, the Dons head coach said he’s excited for what’s next for his family but also going to miss the relationships he made here.
“Coming back to Loyola and having the opportunity to lead the program that shaped me as a player and a person has really been a dream come true,” he said in a statement. “My wife and I made a decision to move to the Boston area next year so that we can be closer to family. We are excited about this next part of our lives together, but at the same time we know that we’ll miss so many of the connections that we have here.”
In his first two seasons, Rubeor, a three-time All-American at UVA, lead the Dons to the conference semifinals.
Rubeor also had a terrific pro career in Major League Lacrosse.
