Homecoming 2011 will be remembered for soaring
spirits and fun-filled events throughout the week.
Popular activities included the Varsity Club golf
tournament, faculty emeriti and retired staff luncheon,
and the SGA's "This Is Why I Squawk" Spirit Week
celebration. New this year was a pre-football game
alumni barbecue, which drew some 150 fans.
Emeriti & Retiree Luncheon
Hall of Fame
Four Alumni — Jen Mezzadra Exelby ('01 lacrosse),
Rebecca Mitchell Agoglia ('01 swimming), April Harned
('01 softball) and J. Michael Scarborough ('76 football,
wrestling) — were inducted into the Athletics Hall of
Fame. Scarborough received the inaugural Hall of Fame
Award of Excellence for the honor he has brought to the
University since his graduation. Four athletics teams
clinched titles during "Championship Saturday," football
with a share of the Empire 8 and field hockey,
volleyball and women's soccer in the Capital Athletic
Conference. All received NCAA tournament bids.
Football & Block Party
That evening, the classes of '76 and '01 celebrated
reunions, while SU ROTC members mingled with active and
retired military members during an armed services
reunion. A special luncheon honored the Class of '61's
50th anniversary. Guests included Margaret Laws Engle,
from the Class of '31, who recently commemorated her
100th birthday, and Ellen Bloodsworth and Carolyn Riley
Whittington from the Class of '36. Campus tours of
Perdue Hall and Sea Gull Square also were popular.
Jayme Block, interim director of alumni relations and
gift development at SU, said: "We could not have asked
for a better weekend. It was great to see alumni from
1931 to 2011 represented at all of the events, including
our championship games. I appreciate the support of our
alumni volunteers, the campus community and, of course,
the Sea Gulls who flocked home to visit their Maryland University of National Distinction."
