Homecoming 2010 will be remembered for soaring spirits and fun-filled events throughout the week. Popular activities included the alumni golf tournament, faculty emeriti and retired staff luncheon, and SGA’s “This Is Why I Squawk” Spirit Week celebrations.
Five Alumni— Sherry Esposito Stick (’00, cross country and track and field), Amy Fenzel-Mergott (’95, M’01, basketball and soccer), Joe High and Chris Turner (’00, men’s lacrosse), and Ben Madarang (’00, tennis)—were inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame. The football team defeated Huntingdon (AL) College, 45-21, at Sea Gull Stadium, giving Coach Sherman Wood his 100th win. The SGA block party at the adjacent intramural fields included everything from inflatables for the kids to an ROTC pushup contest. Other SU teams posting wins over the weekend on campus included field hockey, men’s soccer and volleyball. That afternoon and evening, alumni graduating in years ending in 0 and 5 celebrated milestone reunions.
Jayme Block, interim director of alumni relations and gift development at SU, said: "Overall, it was a fantastic weekend. The weather could not have been better, and it was great to see the various decades of alumni represented at all of the events. I appreciate the support of our alumni volunteers, the campus community and, of course, the Sea Gulls who flocked home to their Maryland University of National Distinction."
