Marple Newtown High School will honor eight former athletes – including three lacrosse players – at its 2013 Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony at the Paxon Hollow Country Club in Broomall on Thursday.
The newest members of the Hall of Fame includes Cynthia Mathes Howard (Field Hockey, Basketball, Lacrosse, 1987), Jenn Cook (Soccer, Swimming, Lacrosse, 2003) and Kelly McGuigan Ulmer (Field Hockey, Basketball, Lacrosse, 1988). Others being inducted are Joe Barr (Football, Baseball, 1988), Danielle Mackey (Swimming, 1987), James Mackey (Swimming, 1988), Jen Ruscitelli McDonnell (Softball, 1989) and Craig Wolf (Football, Baseball 1979).
Mathes Howard and McGuigan Ulmer were captains on the 1987 District 1 championship team, which had an 18-0-1 record and won the Central League championship. That squad toppled Radnor in the District 1/state title game and was coached by JoAnn Yusko, who will be delivering speeches on Thursday.
Cook – now an assistant coach at Princeton – was a three-time first-team All-America and earned 2006 National Defender of the Year honors from Inside Lacrosse while at North Carolina. She garnered first-team All-ACC honors three times, was a Tewaraaton Trophy nominee and helped lead the Tar Heels to three consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals. Cook also played for Yusko as a member of the Phantastix club team.
