2014 Student-Athlete Alumni Challenge A Great Success


March 7, 2014

Loyola University Maryland Athletics is proud to congratulate the men's golf and men's and women's rowing teams on winning the Loyola Student-Athlete Alumni Challenge and the $10,000 in prize money.   

The men's golf team earned half the prize money for having an overall alumni giving percentage of 27 percent; the rowing program won the other half by having a 7.8 percent increase in alumni donors over those from fiscal year 2012-13. 

Eight-hundred-ninety student-athlete alumni donors gave to Loyola Athletics during the challenge, ensuring every program benefited.

"Financial support from alumni is critical to the continued success of our athletic programs," said Jim Paquette, Loyola's assistant vice president and director of athletics. "It ensures our coaches have the ability to provide our student-athletes with the resources to be successful in the community, classroom and on the playing field.  Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge and is helping positively impact the lives of our student-athletes."
