Chris Harvey

Chris Harvey was one of the greatest lacrosse players to compete in New England. The attackman played two seasons for Boston State College and finished his career with one tremendous season at UMass Boston after Boston State merged with UMass Boston in 1982. Harvey's senior season at UMass Boston was a memorable one as he earned a spot on the Division III United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association All-American team and was named a Colonial Division All-Star as well. The 1987 UMB graduate racked up 93 points in 13 games, while amassing 58 goals and 35 assists that year to rank within the top three national leaders in points per game and goals per outing for the Beacons, while leading them to the Colonial Division title and an ECAC Semi-final showdown with Bowdoin College. His point total that season is the fifth-highest in UMass Boston history and his goal tally is the fourth-highest, while his assist mark ranks eighth all-time at UMB. Harvey really shined on March 30, 1982, however, when he set a New England record by registering 17 points, including a then New England record-tying 11 goals vs. Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Harvey also established school-records in that contest with seven points and four assists in a single period of play. His single-game goal total is still the second-highest mark of any UMass Boston player. His play that season also made him the first player in UMB history to earn a selection to the prestigious National North-South All-Star game and was also named to the New England East-West Senior All-Star tilt. In his two seasons with Boston State College, he ripped 55 goals and tallied 76 assists for 131 points in 27 career games to give him a three-year career total of 224 points on 113 goals and 111 assists in 40 games. Harvey also holds the Warriors' single-season mark for assists with 40 in 1980.
