Arlington, Va. – Marymount University is proud to announce its ninth Athletics Hall of Fame class, to be inducted on Saturday, May 10, 2014. Four former Saints standouts including women’s volleyball’s Mary Carroll, women’s basketball’s Katie Jarvis, women’s swimming’s Nina Kuziel and men’s lacrosse’s Garth Little will be enshrined while longtime women’s basketball assistant coach Steve Wicker will be honored in the Hall of Friends.
Mary Carroll ’05 – Women’s Volleyball
The third volleyball player to be inducted, Carroll was a three-year letterwinner for the Saints from 2002-04. A two-time All-Capital Athletic Conference performer, she was named Honorable Mention All-America and All-Mid-Atlantic Region by the AVCA as a senior as well as First Team All-CAC and VaSID First Team All-State. During her junior year, Carroll was tabbed Second Team All-CAC and made the All-Tournament Teams at five different tournaments. She ended her career with an impressive 1,278 kills, 1,415 digs, 171 blocks and 150 service aces. In the classroom, she earned CAC All-Academic honors each of her three years with the Blue and White.
Katie Jarvis ’04 – Women’s Basketball
The 11th women’s basketball player to be added to the Hall of Fame, Jarvis was a key part of the Saints storied run to the NCAA Final Four in 2002. She is one of only three Saints to score over 1,300 points and grab at least 900 points in program history.
Named the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2001, Jarvis was also tabbed Second Team All-CAC as a senior and helped lead the Blue and White to three-straight NCAA Tournaments including the Final Four in 2002, the Sweet 16 in 2003 and the Elite Eight in 2004. For her career, Jarvis scored 1,381 points to go with 920 rebounds and 130 blocks while shooting at an impressive 54 percent from the floor. She is top-10 all-time at Marymount in career blocks (2nd), field goal percentage (2nd), rebounds (3rd), free throws (4th), points (7th) and field goals made (10th). Jarvis also holds the CAC single season record for field goal percentage at 60.3% in 2001-02 and is third in the league all-time in that category.
Nina Kuziel ’06 – Women’s Swimming
Another freshman that took the conference by storm, Kuziel was named the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2003 en route to seven All-CAC performances during her career. She was also the first NCAA qualifier in program history for the Saints. As a freshman, Kuziel was First Team All-CAC in the 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke after winning all three events at the CAC Championships. She went on to earn Second Team All-CAC recognition in the 100 and 200 backstroke and the 200 freestyle relay in 2004 while garnering Second Team All-CAC honors in the 400 freestyle relay as a senior in 2006.
Garth Little ’94 – Men’s Lacrosse
Despite playing just two years during the formative years of a young men’s lacrosse program, Little remains one of the top offensive players in team history. The 1994 CAC Player of the Year, Marymount’s first recipient of the honor, he set single season program records in assists and ground balls with 31 and 136, respectively, that still stand today. For his career, Little scored 52 goals to go with 53 assists for 105 points and remains 11th all-time on the career points list. He is also still fifth all-time in assists and fourth all-time in career ground balls with 261.
Steve Wicker – Hall of Friends
A familiar face around Marymount athletics, Wicker roamed the sidelines with the Saints from 1995-2002. As an assistant coach with the women’s basketball team, he helped lift an already premier program to even greater heights – winning two CAC titles and reaching the NCAA Tournament four times during his tenure, culminating with MU’s storied run to the Final Four in 2002.
