An outstanding student-athlete from 1972-1976. A basketball, volleyball and tennis standout, she helped the newly-created women's athletic program prosper. She earned eight varsity letters, attaining her greatest success as a high-scoring center for the Lady Greyhound basketball team. At the time of her induction she held the school's all-time single game scoring record, set in 1974 when she tossed in 47 points against Coppin State. Her 21 field goals in that game were also a Loyola record at the time of her induction. She led the team in scoring each of her first three years, amassing 526 points while averaging 15.3 points per game. A tremendous competitor, she earned all-Maryland honors as a sophomore and junior. She participated in numerous activities during her undergraduate days, including the Loyola concert choir, the folk group at her parish church, and the Maryland Special Olympics.
