Athletic Hall of Fame inducts seven honorees

This Friday, seven alumni were inducted into Georgetown University’s Athletic Hall of Fame at a special ceremony in the Leavey Center. This year’s induction class was the largest ever.

Inductees included Georgetown basketball legend Alonzo Mourning (COL ’92), track and field national champion Michael Stahr (COL’ 88), tennis star Kathryn Federici (COL’87), football running back Dean Lowry (COL’89), lacrosse goalie James Kenny (MSB’90), Big East swimming champion Mark Marilley (COL’86), soccer star Andrew Hoffmann (MSB’90).

During his time at Georgetown, Mourning was the first player to be  Big East Conference Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Tournament Most Valuable Player in the same season. He is also one of only two Hoyas to graduate with 2,000 or more points and 1,000 or more rebounds. He had an illustrious fifteen year NBA career, and represented the U.S. in the Olympics four times.

Stahr is one of 16 individual national champions in Georgetown’s track history. He won NCAA indoor mile title and was a participant in Georgetown’s world record-setting distance medley relay at the Penn Relays with the fastest split in the relay’s history.

Federici led Georgetown’s tennis team to the 1986 NCAA Tournament, their first and only NCAA tournament appearance.

Lowry graduated as GU’s all-time leader in rushing and scoring. Currently, he is second all-time in career rushing yardage, second in career touchdowns and third in scoring.

Kenny is Georgetown’s all-time lacrosse career leader in saves with 722. He remains among the all-time single season and career leaders in save percentage and goals-against average.

Marilley, a two-time MVP of the swimming program, had set all-time records in the 50, 100, and 200 yard freestyle events.

Hoffmann graduated as Georgetown’s all-time leader in goals, assists, and total points. In 1988, he led the soccer team to its best record in program history and its first-ever appearance in the Big East tournament.

  1. I feel like this photo could be used for those elementary school exercises that ask you to find certain things.

    1. Find the tie with a visible bottom.
    2. Find the woman.
    3. Find the black and white bow tie.
    4. Find the awkwardly short former athlete with his eyes closed.
    5. Find Georgetown University’s President.

    I’ve never been able to do that last one.

  2. I like how whoever posed the picture put Alonzo Mourning, a freakin’ NBA center, next to Jack DeGioia, who’s barely taller than I am when I’m wearing paper-thin flats (that would be five-foot-six).
