CANTON — Former St. Lawrence University men’s lacrosse coach Don Leet will be inducted in the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Dec. 6 at the Baltimore (Md.) Waterfront Marriott.

Leet coached SLU from 1970-97 and finished with 251 wins in 28 seasons, guiding the Saints to eight NCAA Division III Tournament appearances. Leet led SLU to a tournament win over Hobart in 1979. The Statesmen then went on to win 12 straight national titles.

Leet was the third NCAA Division III coach to coach in the North-South Game. He also was a defensive line coach for the SLU football team, helping the Saints reach three NCAA Tournaments, including a 10-1 record in 1982.
