GENEVA, N.Y - Penn State men's lacrosse head coach Jeff Tambroni was elected to the Hobart College Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2018 by the Statesmen Athletic Association Board of Directors and will be formally inducted on November 3, 2018.
"It is an incredible honor to be elected to the Hobart Athletics Hall of Fame," Tambroni said of the honor. "I will always be grateful for the teammates, coaches, and staff who tirelessly invested their hearts into the athletes year after year."
An All-American attackman in lacrosse at Hobart, Tambroni played on three NCAA Division III Championship teams and was twice named an All-American. Over his career, he recorded 106 goals and 99 assists for 202 points and he continues to rank in the top 20 in all three categories. The Most Outstanding Player of the 1990 NCAA tournament, Tambroni earned the 1992 Bill Stiles '43 Memorial Award for leadership and character and was also selected team MVP.
Following graduation, he pursued a career in coaching. Currently the head lacrosse coach at Penn State, Tambroni previously served as the head coach at Cornell. His career began with assistant coaching stints at Hobart, Loyola, and Cornell.
In his coaching career, Tambroni was named the 2009 USILA Division I Coach of the Year, and as one of the sport's most decorated coaches, he enters the 2018 season ranking in the top ten among all active Division I coaches in career win percentage.
Tambroni, along with the rest of the Class of 2018, will be publically recognized during halftime of the Hobart-Ithaca football game at Boswell Field on Nov. 3, and then formally inducted in a black tie optional celebration that evening in Bristol Gymnasium.
