Bryce Chase, a 1963 graduate of Princeton, is in his sixth decade with the men's lacrosse program.
He began as an assistant freshman lacrosse coach in 1970 and then assisted Art Robinson with the varsity squad from 1972-75. Since 1976 Chase has served as either head coach for the junior varsity team or as an assistant to the varsity squad. Together with Robinson, Chase founded the Friends of Princeton Lacrosse.
Chase also coached the United States over-45 team to the 1998 Grand Masters world championship.
A three-year letterman at Princeton, Chase was a midfielder on three undefeated Ivy League championship teams. He also competed on the Tigers’ freshman and junior varsity basketball teams.
Chase, a lawyer, and his wife, Phyllis, reside in Princeton. Phyllis is the team travel and support coordinator for Princeton’s Department of Athletics. The two have 10 grandchildren.
When Chase missed the 2008 Hopkins game due to the flu, it ended a streak of 536 consecutive Princeton games attended.
