Boylan Honored By Family, Friends

May 7, 2010


Loyola University Maryland's retiring Director of Athletics Joe Boylan was honored Friday night at a gathering of friends and family, as the school unveiled a plaque in his honor.

Boylan is the first member of Loyola's Distinguished Athletic Leaders wall at Ridley Athletic Complex.

The new home of Loyola men's and women's lacrosse and soccer, Ridley opened earlier this year after years of planning under Boylan's guidance.

After 20 years at Loyola, Boylan will retire this year.

The plaque features one of Boylan's favorite Irish proverbs, "These things I warmly wish for you -- someone to love, some work to do, a bit-o-sun, a bit-o-cheer, and a guardian angel always near."
