COLUMBUS, Ohio – Jud Hall, an Upper Arlington native and recent graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University, has been named the volunteer coach for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team, Buckeye head coach Nick Myers announced.

“We are excited to welcome Jud Hall to the coaching staff for the upcoming season,” Myers said. “Coach Hall will be mentoring our goalies and assisting with our defensive schemes. He has grown up in town and is one of the best goalies to ever come out of central Ohio. He is a great compliment to the staff we have in place and understands the special tradition we have here at The Ohio State University.”

Hall, a team captain for the Battling Bishops as both a junior and senior, was a part of back-to-back North Coast Athletic Conference championship squads in 2010 and ’11 and the team participated in the NCAA tournament all four years (2008-11). He was a first team all-league selection in 2010 and an honorable mention choice in 2009.

“It is an unbelievable opportunity to work with the great coaching staff here at Ohio State,” Hall said. “I am really looking forward to coaching at this amazing university.”

At Upper Arlington, Hall was a member of state championship teams in 2005, ’06 and ‘07. The Golden Bears won the 2007 Midwest title and were Midwest runner-up twice. He was a high school All-American in 2007.

Hall earned his bachelor’s degree from OWU in sociology and anthropology and also completed a minor in history.
