Washington, DC -- The Georgetown University Alumni Association and Hoyas Unlimited will host the 18th biennial Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Saturday, February 2, 2008. Six former Hoyas will be honored at the event, including former coach and athletic director Joseph Lang, field hockey star Marianne Sullivan (C'87), track and field national champion Kevin King (E' 85), prolific lacrosse scorer Paul Murphy (C'85), volleyball standout Cathy Taylor (C'89) and All-America basketball player Reggie Williams (C'87). Cocktails will begin at 6 p.m., and the dinner and ceremony will commence at 7 p.m.

Joe Lang has a history of dedicated service to Georgetown Athletics. An elite national coach of track and field during his first ten years on the Hilltop, Joe worked tirelessly serving all of Georgetown's coaches and athletes during the following 20 years. He was named Director of Athletics in 1995. Among his most notable accomplishments as Director was his critical role in restructuring and preserving the BIG EAST Conference.

Reggie Williams was not only one of the best scorers in Georgetown history, but a superb all-around player. He is the only Hoya ever to surpass the following career benchmarks: 1,000 points, 600 rebounds, 200 assists and 200 steals. Named MVP of the Final Four as a freshman, Reggie brought the same performance to every game he played for the Hoyas. His most productive season came in his senior year when he was named BIG EAST Player of the Year and a consensus First Team All-American.

Volleyball player Cathy Taylor was a dominating force at the net, controlling play with her killing and blocking abilities. A Big East rookie of the year, Cathy set the standard on the Hilltop for career kills. She is still the second place all-time leader in that category with 1,755 kills. Cathy was the first Hoya to be selected for the U.S. Olympic Festival and is one of only two individuals ever to be named to the Big East all-tournament team three times.

One of the bright lights in Georgetown men's lacrosse history, Paul Murphy currently ranks third all-time in points scored with 188. As a sophomore, he smashed the single season Hoya scoring record with 58 points (34 goals and 24 assists). By graduation, Paul held every Georgetown scoring record in lacrosse. In two of his four seasons, he was selected the outstanding offensive player on the team. In 1983 and 1985, he won the Corcoran Memorial Trophy as the team's most valuable player.

Kevin King is one of 16 individual national champions in Georgetown's track history, and one of only six Hoyas to be a multiple national champion. A six-time BIG EAST champion, he won the indoor 3000m at the 1985 NCAA championships in record time, a mark which still stands today. A seven-time All-American, Kevin received the Duffey Scholar-Athlete Award, given to the student-athlete who best embodies athletic and academic excellence.

Marianne Sullivan will be the first field hockey player inducted into the Hall of Fame. From her defensive position, Marianne established single season and career scoring records that have since been surpassed by only one other player. She led her team to the most wins in the history of the program. A team MVP, Marianne was the first Georgetown hockey player ever accorded All-America recognition. She was also selected to play in multiple national tournaments.

The Athletic Hall of Fame Citation is a University-wide award presented to a graduate of Georgetown or to a coach or administrator who qualifies for recognition on the basis of superior athletic achievement or contribution to athletics at Georgetown. The Georgetown Hall of Fame was established in 1953 and is located in the southwest gallery of the Leavey Student Center on GU's campus. More than 223 student-athletes and leaders from the annals of Georgetown have been enshrined.
