Gettysburg’s Janczyk collects rare 300th win
Hank Janczyk became the fifth NCAA men’s lacrosse coach to reach 300 wins when nationally ranked Gettysburg defeated Denison last weekend.
Janczyk joined Jack Emmer, who won most of his 326 games at Army; Salisbury’s Jim Berkman, (315 as of March 12) who reached the milestone last season; Georgetown's Dave Urick (306 as of March 12); and Dick Garber of Massachusetts, who won his 300th game in 1990.
Janczyk has collected 255 of his wins at Gettysburg, where he is in his 21st season as coach. He also won 33 games during three years at Salisbury, his first head-coaching post, and 12 wins during two seasons at Colgate.
He has led Gettysburg to 17 appearances in the Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship, including runner-up finishes in 2001 and 2002. He also is a two-time Division III coach of the year -- once at Salisbury and again at Gettysburg in 2001.
Janczyk was a defenseman on Hobart’s 1976 Division III championship team.
