Hall of Fame Inductees

Mark Boyle served as the head coach for the Marian men’s basketball program for 30 years and becomes the sixth coach to enter the Hall of Fame.  Boyle began his tenure with Marian athletics in 1988 and led the Sabres to 390 victories, five conference championships, and two trips to the NCAA Tournament.  The Sabres also won five conference tournament championships with the titles in 2001 and 2014 leading to the pair of national tournament appearances.  During the LMC era of his career, Boyle led Marian to a 154-92 (.626) record with four of his conference championships.  The Sabres had 10 winning seasons during the LMC years before he helped transition the program in the NACC era.  His best season as a coach came during the NACC era after Marian went 22-7 with a 17-3 conference ledger in the 2013-14 season.  That season marked just the second time in the history of the program a team reached the 20-win plateau and also served as the first NACC Championship.  Over his tenure, Boyle coached 17 of the 19 student-athletes who have reached 1,000 career points, 64 all-conference selections, eight all-district honorees, five Player of the Year winners, and one Freshman of the Year.  Boyle earned five Coach of the Year awards coming in 1990, 1991, 2001, 2008, and 2014.

The 2000-01 Marian men’s basketball team joins Boyle in the Hall of Fame becoming the first men’s basketball team to reach the Hall of Fame.  The team went 17-11 on the season with an 8-4 LMC record and put together a late run to become the first team in program history to earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament.  The Sabres were able to win three of the final four LMC games of the season including a 78-71 win over Lakeland, who finished one spot ahead of Marian in the final standings, at home.  Marian opened the LMC Tournament with a 74-72 overtime victory over CUW at home before becoming road warriors the rest of the way.  The Sabres were able to knock off top-ranked Edgewood in the semifinals of the tournament in a tight 65-62 victory.  Then Marian headed to Lakeland, a team they had beaten at home just two weeks prior, and defeated the Muskies 67-60 to earn the fourth LMC Tournament Championship in program history and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Boyle highlighted postseason recognition earning his second consecutive Coach of the Year award.  Eric Meunch led the Sabres in scoring and rebounding averaging 15.7 points per game with 4.9 rebounds per game to earn LMC All-Conference recognition.  He would also hold the team lead for steals with 53 on the defensive end.  Scott Jaeger (’13) joined him after averaging 15.5 points per game and leading the squad with 69 three-pointers and a 40.6-shooting percentage from beyond the arc.  Jaeger also finished with a team-high 161 assists and on the defensive end grabbed 48 steals.  Brian Crowe went on to earn honorable mention recognition and Wade Georgeff earned a spot on the All-Freshman Team.

Julia (Skenandore) Ravindran remains as one of the most dominant pitchers in Marian softball history and helped lead Marian to an LMC Championship and a berth into the NCAA Tournament during her career.  Ravindran was an LMC All-Conference selection all four seasons of her career and her name remains littered in both the single-season and career record books.  Upon her graduation, Ravindran left Marian as the winningest pitcher in program history with 54 victories and had logged the most innings pitched with 656.  She remains the program leader for shutouts with 16, strikeouts with 558, and complete games with 84.  Ravindran holds the top-two single seasons for strikeouts after logging 187 punch outs in 2004 and 154 in 2005.  Her 2004 season where she set the single-season record for strikeouts saw her lead the Sabres to an LMC Championship after posting 14 wins and two saves behind a single-season program record 1.32 earned-run average.  She would also toss six shutouts that year, the third most for a single season in Sabre history behind 190.2 innings pitched, third-most in program history for a single season.  The year prior in 2003, Ravindran led Marian to an LMC Tournament Championship and berth into the NCAA Tournament after earning 15 victories, tied for the fourth-most in a single season in program history.  Her 2005 season saw her match her 15-win total from her first campaign with a 2.17 earned-run average, ninth-best in program history, with five shutouts, tied for fourth in program history.
