BALTIMORE - Three former Loyola University Maryland lacrosse players - Tim Goettelmann, Gary Hanley and Tara Singleton - have been named to their respective USLacrosse Chapter Halls of Fame and will be induced in ceremonies next year.
Hanley and Singleton will represent the Greyhounds' men's and women's programs in the Greater Baltimore Chapter, and Goettelmann will be honored by the Long Island Metropolitan Chapter.
Goettelmann and Hanley were two of the top offensive players in Loyola men's program history. Hanley holds the school records in all three categories - points (311), goals (151) and assists (160) - and he has the top three single-season points performances, logging 89, 86 and 83 in 1981, 1980 and 1979, respectively.
A 1981 graduate of the school, Hanley was inducted to the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame in 1990. He was a three-time All-American for the Greyhounds, earning first team recognition as a senior. That season, he led Loyola to the 1981 NCAA Division II Championship Game where he scored five goals and had two assists in a loss to Adelphi.
Goettelmann was the first Loyola player to score 50 or more goals in a season; he graduated as the single-season record holder for goals after tallying an even 50 during his 2000 senior campaign when he was a Second Team All-American. His single-season scoring record stood for 12 years until three players have passed it in the last three seasons.
He finished his Loyola career with 94 goals from 1997-2000 and went on to one of the best professional careers in Major League Lacrosse history. In 2010, he set the MLL career scoring record and retired with 270 goals, a mark that is third all-time in League history. His 14 game-winning goals are still tied for the most in MLL history, and he is sixth all-time with 366 points. He was named Lacrosse Magazine Man of the Year in 2010 for his work on the field and off with his charity, Monster's Kids, a non-profit foundation to assist children at Cohen Children's Medical Center.
Singleton ranks as one of the top defenders in Loyola women's lacrosse history where she lettered from 2001-2004 and was a Second Team All-American as a senior co-captain in 2004. That season, she picked up 31 ground balls and caused 35 turnovers for a team that went to the NCAA Championships.
During her four years with the program, Singleton caused 90 turnovers and picked up 83 ground balls. Her 90 caused turnovers rank fifth in program history.
Hanley and Singleton will be honored at the Greater Baltimore Chapter Hall of Fame Ceremony on Jan. 17 at Hillendale Country Club, while Goettelmann will be enshrined to the Long Island Hall of Fame on Feb. 7 in Melville, New York.
