Looney’s was founded in early 2008 by Paul Gray, co-owner of Gray Insurance Group, and Bill Larney, owner of Looney’s Pub, both located on South Main Street in Bel Air, MD. Through many conversations over lunch about their shared enthusiasm for lacrosse, along with Larney’s generous sponsorship, Looney’s Lacrosse Club was formed. Paul then brought Rick Roesner on board as a codirector. Rick has done an amazing job recruiting coaches and players for our program, while coaching our elite 2010 U13 team. Soon to follow, the established Misstix Girl’s Lacrosse Club joined forces with Larney and changed their program to the Looney’s Lacrosse Club for Girls.
The first year for the Looney’s Lacrosse boy’s program was very successful. Our teams won championships in six of the seven tournaments we participated in. Looney’s U11 team took first place in the Upper Atlantic and Tri-State National Tournaments, the Greene Turtle Invitational, and the Chocolatetown Shootout. The U13 team won both the Upper Atlantic and Tri-State Tournaments, and took second place in Summer Sizzle. In our first three years, Looney's has won a combined 19 championships and 6 second place finishes.
Looney’s draws players mainly from Baltimore and Harford Counties. Looney’s Lacrosse Club has a bright future ahead of us. With our strong foundation, we have become one of the premier lacrosse clubs in our area!
