Francis X. Gagliano










There are many measures of success in the sport of track and field. Many outstanding track coaches have served Georgetown in the 115-year history of the intercollegiate team. By all measures, Frank Gagliano is the most successful coach in the long and storied history of track on the Hilltop. From 1983 to 1999, his unrelenting demand for excellence and his never-tiring and encouraging heart contributed to his larger-than-life stature as coach of the Hoyas.

Frank's tenure teemed with the accomplishments of his athletes: 140 All-America performers; five Olympians; seven individual national champions; 23 BIG EAST championship teams; eight indoor IC4A team titles; two outdoor IC4A crowns; 58 individual IC4A champions; eight Penn Relay Championship of America titles, including a world-record-breaking distance medley relay team; and 46 school records.

"Gags" earned two National Coach of the Year awards and coached Team USA at the 1993 World University Games. Beyond the successes of his performers, his legacy is far-reaching. He increased the diversity and breadth of the track and field program and supported the expansion and rise of the women's program.

In recognition of his outstanding contributions and integral place in the annals of
Georgetown track and field, the name of

Francis X. Gagliano

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.
