Wesleyan University Athletics recently inducted St. Andrew's alum John Landay ’97 into their Hall of Fame for his standout collegiate lacrosse career. At Wesleyan, Landay became the all-time leading scorer in the history of men's lacrosse, posting 306 points while scoring a program record 186 goals. In his final season at Wesleyan, Landay led the nation with 121 points (73 goals, 48 assists) which earned him NESCAC Player of the Year and Third Team All-American honors. His 121 points still stands as Wesleyan's single-season points record.
Landay's college dominance started at St. Andrew's as a three-sport varsity athlete in football, basketball, and lacrosse. During his junior and senior seasons, he led the lacrosse team to back-to-back appearances in the state championship semifinals and also set the single-season records for goals (65) and points (93) during his junior campaign. Landay still holds records for the most points (173) and goals (116) in his career despite only playing two seasons for the Saints.
John's fellow co-captain Will Robinson ’97 remembered John fondly: "John landing at St. Andrew's was a gift from the gods. We were a good team with a strong history and culture, but John's arrival took us to a completely different level. He carried us and made us all better. He had so many memorable acrobatic goals on the crease, but could also fire a shot from anywhere above the goal line. Everyone we played put everything they had against him in a feeble effort to stop him. You couldn't stop him. You couldn't even contain him."
