In a stunning ceremony at Ed Robson Arena, five individuals and one team were inducted into the Colorado College Athletic Hall of Fame on April 30.
Julian Boggs ’08 (men’s cross country/track and field), Martina Holan ’98 (women’s soccer), Heather McGuire ’94 (volleyball), Brett Sterling ’06 (hockey), Dr. Thomas Mahony ’67 (team physician) and the 1973 football team were enshrined as the Hall of Fame Class of 2021.
For the first time since 2006, the Hall of Fame event was held on the CC campus. Utilizing the school’s new multi-purpose building, nearly 300 people attended.
Boggs is Colorado College’s only five-time All-American, earning the honor three times in cross country and twice in track. He finished third at the 2006 NCAA Division III Cross Country Championships and placed second and fifth, respectively, in the 5K at the 2006 and ’07 DIII National Track and Field Meet.
Holan is ranked No. 2 on CC’s career lists with 107 points and 45 goals. She also is tied for No. 7 with 17 assists and owns a share of the school record with four hat tricks. She competed for Canada in the 2007 World Cup and the 2008 Summer Olympics.
McGuire was named a Division III All-American in 1993, as well as a two-time Academic All-American in ’93 and ’94. She is the school’s career leader for total blocks (558) and block solos (279) and No. 2 in program history with 279 block assists.
Sterling is one of CC’s most recognizable hockey players, earning All-American and Academic All-American honors in 2005 and ’06. He finished second in the nation in scoring during the 2004-05 season with 63 points and was a “Hobey Hat Trick” finalist that year.
Mahony served as the chief athletic team physician for the CC Athletics Department from 1978-2010. He was a two-sport athlete at CC, playing football and baseball.
The 1973 football team posted a 9-1 record, the most wins in one season in program history, and allowed just 10 points per game. Loaded with underclassmen (25 freshmen, 15 sophomores, and just nine seniors), the team outscored their opponents 242-104 and recorded a pair of shutouts that season.
