Randy Richter


Randy moved to Frederick County in 1985 and immediately made an impact on area sports programs. In 1992 he was one of the founders of the Western Maryland Youth Soccer Officials Association. Later, in 1996, he was a prime mover in creating the Western Maryland Soccer Officials Association. Perhaps his greatest contribution was in helping to bring high school lacrosse to Frederick County: The addition of high school lacrosse as a Frederick County interscholastic sport was due in large part to Randy’s efforts. In 1996 he founded the Frederick County women’s lacrosse program. He established the Western Maryland Lacrosse Officials Association in 1994. Over the years, he has officiated at more than 3,000 youth and high school soccer and lacrosse games.
