New Rochelle, NY (June 4, 2012) The 31st Annual Iona College Goal Club Hall of Fame Golf Outing Dinner will be held on Monday June 4 at the Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, NY. This event includes the induction of alumni into the Iona College Hall of Fame. This year’s inductees are; Steve Burt, ’06, Laura Koch, ’98, David J. McCabe, ’80, and JoAnn Mazzella Murphy, ’98H.
Laura Koch ’98 was one of the most decorated female swimmers in Iona College women's swimming and diving history. At the time of her graduation, she held nine individual school records and was a part of all-five relay record-holding teams. She was also a member of the women's water polo team (’95, ’96, ’98, ’99) and helped Iona win its first ever championship in 1999.
Steve Burtt ’06 is one of the most prolific scorers in Iona College men's basketball history. Burtt is currently second all-time in scoring behind none other than his father. The Burtts hold the NCAA record for most points scored by a father and son combination with 4,568. Burtt is only one of two Iona basketball players to eclipse the 2,000-point mark.
JoAnn Mazella Murphy ’98H is a legal trustee of Iona College and a vice chair of Country Bank. She has generously given her time and resources towards the enrichment of the institution and its athletic programs.
David J. McCabe ’80 is a Legal Trustee of Iona College and a senior partner at Willkie, Farr & Gallagher LLP. He has been a strong advocate of women's sports and Title IX for Iona College Athletics.
