Penelope J. Rickard '88










An axiom of sport is that physical trials of competition frequently test character as much as strength and agility. The athletic challenges successfully undertaken by tennis star Penny Rickard on the Hilltop would prepare her well for the rest of her life.

Penny made an immediate impact at Georgetown, going undefeated in dual matches as a freshman. Capturing two conference titles and two second-place finishes in four years, she never finished lower than third in any singles competition.

During her four years, Penny reached the NCAA tournament three times--twice in doubles, once in singles--and finished with a career record at Georgetown of 122-30. Twice named most valuable player, she captained the team as a senior. A graduate of the School of Nursing, she received the 1988 Robert A. Duffey Scholar-Athlete Award, presented annually to the senior who best exhibits excellence in both athletics and academics.

In recognition of her numerous achievements and her outstanding contribution to the winning spirit of Georgetown tennis, the name of

PENELOPE J. RICKARD, N'88

is permanently inscribed in the Georgetown University Athletic Hall of Fame
among the names of the greatest athletes in the history of the University.

Given this day, the fourth of February, in the year of 2006.
