WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Department of Athletics, in conjunction with The Annual Fund for Georgetown Athletics and the Georgetown University Alumni Association, will host the 23rd edition of the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Saturday, January 18, 2014.

Six former Hoya athletes and one athletic official will be honored at the event. The inductees include long-time men's lacrosse coach David Urick, All-BIG EAST basketball guard Nadira Ricks '94, NCAA track and field champions Steve Holman '92 and Richard Kenah '92, championship rowers Catherine Symon '93 and Melissa Schwen Ryan '94 and All-America lacrosse attackman Christopher Remington `95.

Urick's career at Georgetown concluded with a 23-year record of 223-99, including a school-record 13 wins in 1999. His teams won at least 10 games on 12 occasions, posted winning records in 21 of 23 seasons and finished with a .500 record or better since he took over as head coach in 1990, the only winning seasons in the program's 37-year history of Division I competition.

Under Urick's guidance, Georgetown advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 11-consecutive seasons between 1997 and 2007. During that stretch, the Hoyas advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals nine times, including six-straight seasons. In 1999, the Hoyas advanced all the way to the NCAA semifinals, the best finish ever in the history of Georgetown lacrosse.

Ricks was an All-BIG EAST guard and standout defender for the Hoyas. She still holds the record for steals in a season with 112 in 1992-93 and was the career leader (321) until her record was broken last year. Ricks helped lead the Blue & Gray to the 1993 BIG EAST Regular Season Championship and the Sweet 16. The conference title is the only one in program history and the Hoyas have gone back to the Sweet 16 only one other time. The 1993 NCAA Tournament berth was the first in program history.

Consistently one of America's fastest 1,500m runners, Holman won his first U.S. Outdoor title in 1999 after previously finishing 13th at the 1996 Olympic Trials. A 10-time All-American at Georgetown, Holman is the most-decorated male track athlete in Georgetown history with his 10 distinctions, gathering honors in cross country, indoor and outdoor individual events as well as indoor relay events. Holman was the Penn Relays MVP in 1991, splitting 2:51.2, 3:40.0 and 1:47.3 in two days. He was a Duffey Award recipient and holds the program record in the outdoor 1,500m with a time of 3:34.92 as well as ranking among the top 10 on 15 different all-time lists, with 10 appearances on outdoor lists as well as five on indoor lists. Though his expertise proved best in distances ranging from 1,500 meters to 5,000 meters on the individual side, Holman's performances on indoor 4x800-meter relay squads is undisputed as he is a member of four of the top five relays on the all-time list, anchoring three of them.

Kenah won bronze medals over 800m at the 1997 World Indoor Championships and at the World Championships in Athens, he was also a member of the US Olympic Team in Sydney in 2000. He ranks among the best times in Georgetown program history in both the outdoor 1,500m (3:44.17) and in a 1,500m relay carry (3:48.4).

Symon helped the Hoyas to a gold medal at the Dad Vail Regatta in 1993, before going on to international success at the 1994 World Championships, 1995 World Championships and the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.

Ryan was a catalyst for one of the strongest two-year periods in Georgetown rowing history. In addition to winning gold at the Dad Vail Regatta in '93, she was a part of the openweight eight that won the GU Invitational in 1994.

During the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics, Ryan and teammate Karen Kraft earned a silver medal finishing .39 seconds behind the Australian pair. A month after the games, she donated a kidney to her older brother, Michael. The saving of her brother's life would not spell the end of her racing career. Ryan and Kraft returned to the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympics, earning a bronze medal in the women's coxless pairs. She was inducted into the National Rowing Hall of Fame in 2010.

A two-time All-America selection, Remington was part of a class that helped transform Georgetown men's lacrosse into a perennial top-20 team under Urick. A 1995 graduate, Remington is still second in career points with 189. His 117 goals and 72 assists are both fifth in program history.

A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the dinner and ceremony will commence at 6:15 p.m in the Leavey Center on Georgetown's campus.

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 240 student-athletes and leaders from the annals of Georgetown have been enshrined.
