Alumni Inducted into Athletic Hall of Fame

The eleven 2024 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees were celebrated during a ceremony on Thursday, April 25 in the Klein Lyceum. The ceremony was attended by the honorees as well as more than 100 guests including coaches, families, and friends.

The Hall of Fame recognizes those who have achieved an outstanding athletic record while at McDonogh and demonstrated the ideal values of a McDonogh athlete: dedication, perseverance, positive attitude, leadership, and teamwork. It also recognizes coaches, athletic trainers, and administrators who inspired McDonogh’s athletes to embrace these values.

After welcoming remarks from Co-Athletic Director Mickey Deegan the inductees were each introduced by Co-Athletic Director Matt MacMullan or Coach Deegan, who spoke about their storied career at McDonogh and beyond. Before receiving a framed varsity letter in recognition of their accomplishments, the recipients reflected on their McDonogh experience and the impact of their coaches, teammates, and education.
