|Growing up in the Baltimore area, Romy learned to love the sport of lacrosse, frequently watching the best teams in the nation compete, like Johns Hopkins, Towson, Loyola, Maryland and Navy. As a midfielder for Towson High School, his team won the Maryland state JV championship sophomore year, and came in second place in the varsity championship junior and senior years. Following high school, Romy attended the University of Delaware, and played in the fall of his freshman year with the varsity lacrosse program, followed by four spring seasons playing for the club lacrosse team. |
After graduating from Delaware with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and while starting his professional career in engineering supporting the US Navy, Romy spent two years coaching rec lacrosse in Annapolis, Maryland. After graduating with an MBA from Loyola University in Baltimore, Romy moved out west in the early 90’s to pursue a career in the software industry.
Fast forward to 2018, when Romy’s son expressed interest in playing lacrosse, the love of the sport and coaching instinct was rekindled, and the two spent that summer working on the lacrosse basics. With his son’s freshman year at SDA progressing online during the Covid lockdown, Romy gladly volunteered his time as an assistant coach with the varsity team for the Spring 2021 season as things opened up on campus. As part of player development at SDA this school year, Romy will be running a weekly boys lacrosse skills camp this fall/winter, open to players of all levels (including beginners), and again will be volunteering as an assistant coach in the spring.
