In early December 2015, Terry Corcoran, the head coach of the Wabash College men’s lacrosse team, was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Greater Rochester chapter of U.S. Lacrosse. The honor was conferred in recognition of his 32 years as a lacrosse coach at such schools as Washington (Maryland) College, Skidmore College, and Elizabethtown College. During that time, Terry Corcoran’s teams achieved a combined record of 274 wins and 195 losses, and they made appearances in 11 NCAA tournaments and four championship games. Fifty of his players were named All-Americans.
A three-letter varsity athlete in high school, Terry Corcoran’s affinity for lacrosse became apparent when he was selected to the All-American lacrosse team in 1972 and 1973. Terry Corcoran continued to stand out as an undergraduate at Hobart College in Geneva, New York, where he was a varsity player, was named to the All-American team three times, and helped lead his team to national championships in 1976 and 1977. In 1978, his senior year, he was selected team captain, became the nation’s leading scorer, and was named National Attackman of the Year.
Terry Corcoran’s induction into the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame by the Rochester chapter is not the first time he’s been so honored. A native of Corning, New York, he was named to that town’s Hall of Fame in 1984, to Hobart College’s Hall of Fame in 1992, and to Washington College’s Hall of Fame in 2008.
