BALTIMORE, MD - The Loyola College Athletic Club has announced its latest Hall of Fame class and is proud to present five of Loyola's all-time greats in an induction ceremony on November 1. Media legend Vince Bagli '49 heads the latest class and is joined by Chris Colbeck '91 (men's lacrosse), David Maynes '82 (men's lacrosse), Rick McClure (tennis coach) and Patty Stoffey-Edelman '96 (women's basketball).
Bagli, known as "The Dean" of Baltimore sports television, served as Sports Director for over 30 years at WBAL TV 11. There he mentored some of today's finest sportscasters and earned respect in local and national circles. The National Association of Sportswriters named Bagli "Sportscaster of the Year" ten times during his illustrious career. As an alumnus, he served as national chairman of the College's Evergreen Fund and was honored as the 1971 Alumni of Year.
Colbeck, an attackman, was a two-time All-American on the men's lacrosse team. He scored the game-winning goal versus Yale in the 1990 NCAA semifinal, in what many have hailed as the greatest game in Loyola men's lacrosse history. After his graduation, Colbeck also won acclaim as an assistant coach, winning national titles at Princeton and Virginia and earning national coach of the year honors in the national championship year at Virginia. He was a co-captain his senior year and led Loyola in scoring as both a junior and senior.
Maynes, also a men's lacrosse player, was a first-team All-American player in the Division II era at Loyola, and led the Greyhounds to the NCAA Division II title game against Adelphi in 1981. He is one of the finest midfielders in Loyola Men's Lacrosse history.
McClure has coached the Loyola men's tennis team since 1979 and the women's team since 1988. Both programs have flourished under him, capturing eight MAAC titles. The Greyhound coach has built his program into one of the school's best and his teams are always a threat in the MAAC.
Stoffey-Edelman graduated as one of the nation's most prolific scorers. The two-time MAAC tournament MVP was the 1995 MAAC Player of the Year. She finished her career ranked No 25 on the NCAA Division all-time scoring list and was an honorable mention All-American for the Greyhounds.
These five "Greyhounds" will become official members of the Loyola Hall of Fame on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. The induction ceremony will take place in McGuire Hall on the campus of Loyola College.
