Soccer Alumni Inducted To Maryland Soccer Hall Of Fame

May 10, 2016

BALTIMORE - The Old Timers Soccer Association of Maryland is inducting its 42nd Hall of Fame class and this year Loyola University Maryland women's soccer alumna Ali Andrzejewski and former men's soccer player Bill Heiser will be among the six inducted.

Andrzejewski came to Loyola after playing two seasons at the University of Maryland. In just two years at Loyola, she broke the program's scoring records and in 2004, she recorded a school-record 18 goals and 43 points, the most of any Greyhound in a single season. Andrzejewski was a two-time Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year. She earned spots on the conference's first-team, all-tournament team and academic squad, in addition to earning first-team Mid-Atlantic region honors in 2005 and third team honors in 2004.

The Lutherville, Maryland, native graduated from Loyola in 2005 with a degree in psychology and currently coaches for Pipeline Soccer. She also runs Champions Soccer Training and More Than Futbol, a mission program that uses soccer to connect with children in impoverished countries.

Heiser, a 1995 graduate of Loyola, helped the Greyhounds' men's soccer team to four-straight MAAC Regular Season and Tournament titles, in addition to an NCAA College Cup appearance and two play-in games. Throughout his four seasons, the Greyhounds posted an overall record of 65-18-4, went 27-1-0 in MAAC play and won all eight MAAC Tournament games they played.

The Bowie, Maryland, native is currently ranked 18th in the program's all-time record books in points, 16th in career goals and tied for 12th in career assists. Only three players have surpassed his four-year totals of 80 points, 30 goals and 20 assists in the past 21 years.

Heiser is currently the president of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore after serving as principal at Catonsville and North County High Schools. Dr. Heiser earned both a bachelor's and a master's degree from Loyola University, and received an Ed.D. in higher education administration from Morgan State University. In 2013, the Maryland Association of Secondary School Principals named Dr. Heiser Principal of Year.

Andrzejewski, Heiser and the four remaining inductees will be recognized Friday, May 13, at the induction ceremony in Perry Hall, Maryland. For tickets and more information .
