College career

Marechek played college lacrosse at Syracuse University where he teamed with Paul and Gary Gait to form one of the great college lacrosse squads in history, winning national title games in 1989 and 1990. Marechek is the fifth leading college goal scorers in lacrosse history with 182 goals, a four-time All-American, three-time first-team All-American pick, had 76 assists and 258 career points, scored 53 goals during his junior season to lead NCAA Division I, and set a Syracuse freshman record by scoring 46 goals on just 82 shots (56.1 per cent). He is well known for scoring shots behind his back, and has been rumored to have scored more this way than normal. He was inducted into both the NCAA Hall of Fame[1] and the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame[2] in 2008.

Professional career

NLL

He also played indoor lacrosse in the National Lacrosse League, where he played 12 seasons with the Philadelphia Wings. He retired from the NLL after the 2005 season. His number 42 was retired by the Wings and now hangs from the rafters at the Wachovia Center. On February 16, 2007, Marechek was inducted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame.[3]

Post-professional career

He currently coaches the Friends School of Baltimore's boys' varsity lacrosse team in Baltimore, Maryland. He is also director of a successful Instructional Lacrosse camp AllPro held at Goucher College.
