Below is a look at the nine individuals who comprise the 2011 class of inductees for the Johns Hopkins Athletic Hall of Fame.
Chadd Crump - Class of 1996
Water Polo Swimming
The number of standout two-sport athletes at the collegiate level has dwindled through the years, but Chadd Crump thrived throughout his career at Johns Hopkins as a standout for both the Blue Jay water polo and men's swimming teams.
Crump excelled in water polo throughout his career and remains, 15 years after graduating, one the program's all-time greats. He finished his career ranked second in school history with 324 career goals, a mark that still ranks third overall. He also remains one of just four players in school history to score 300 or more goals. A two-time captain in water polo, Crump garnered All-America honors four times during his career, including first team honors as a sophomore, junior and senior. He was also selected as the Most Valuable Player at the Division III Eastern Championships in 1994 and 1995, when he guided the Blue Jays to the team title. He is one of just three players in school history to earn a spot on the Division III Eastern Championship All-Tournament team four times - he was the first Blue Jay to accomplish this.
In a program full of individual and team accomplishments, Crump was the first freshman All-American in water polo at Johns Hopkins and he is still one of just five freshmen in school history to earn All-America honors.
While most noted for his achievements in water polo, Crump also excelled in the pool in the winter for the Blue Jay swimming team. A team captain as a senior, he helped lead the team to four consecutive UAA titles and four finishes in the top five at the NCAA Championships as well. JHU grabbed one third-place finish (1994), two fourth-place showings (1993 & 1996) and a fifth-place finish (1995) at the NCAAs during his career.
Crump was a member of two relay teams that won UAA titles duirng his career and he also qualified for the NCAA Championships as a senior.
Pablo Drobny - Class of 1967
Pablo Drobny came to Johns Hopkins in 1963 having never participated in an organized soccer program at any level. Four years later, he graduated from JHU as one of the most accomplished players in school history.
Drobny, who couldn't play varsity soccer in his first year at Homewood as freshmen were ineligible for varsity athletics at the time, enjoyed a three-year career that saw him leave his name dotted throughout the Blue Jay record book.
A team captain as a senior, Drobny tied the school record for career goals as he tallied 27 during his three years. That mark stood for more than a decade before being broken and he is one of just three players in school history who scored 25 or more career goals while playing when freshmen were ineligible.
In addition to his career mark, Drobny tied the JHU single-season record for goals (14) as a senior and set a school record with five goals in a win over Dickinson as a sophomore. His mark for goals in a game stood unmatched for nearly 40 years, while his 14 goals in 1966 weren't surpassed for nearly a decade and surpassed just once in the 25 years after he graduated.
Drobny's exploits landed him individual recognition at the conference, regional and national levels.
An all-conference selection by both the Mason Dixon and Middle Atlantic Conferences during his career, he was also one of just 22 fall student-athletes nationwide selected for a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship as a senior. He was the second Johns Hopkins athlete to earn this honor and nearly 50 years later he is still one of just three Blue Jay soccer players to earn an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Drobny also served as President of the H-Club as a senior.
Gary Handleman - Class of 1972
Another of Johns Hopkins' truly outstanding two-sport athletes, Gary Handleman excelled in basketball and lacrosse during his time at Homewood. Along the way, he did something that will never be matched and played for one Hall of Fame coach and another whose career is nationally recognized.
Handleman, who played at a time when freshmen were ineligible, became the first player in school history to score 1,000 points in basketball as he ended his three-year career with 1,052. He led the team in scoring as a junior (17.7) and senior (18.7) and also led the team in field goal percentage as a junior (50.8) and senior (53.4) and free throw percentage as a senior (74.5).
Only three players in school history have bettered Handleman's career scoring average (16.2) and his scoring averages as a junior and senior still rank among the top 10 in school history. A team captain as a senior and an All-Middle Atlantic Conference selection during his career, he played one season for a young Jim Valvano (1969-70) and helped the Blue Jays post a 10-9 record that season; the first season JHU posted a winning record since 1946-47.
The end of basketball season meant the start of lacrosse season for Handleman, who played for Hall of Fame coach Bob Scott.
A faceoff specialist/midfielder, Handleman was a member of JHU's 1970 USILA National Championship team and helped the 1972 team to the NCAA Championship game. Handleman scored 36 goals and added 11 assists and 190 ground balls during his career, but did most of his damage on faceoffs, where he won 100-of-162 (.602) during his career. Nearly 40 years after graduating, he still holds the fourth-highest single-season faceoff winning percentage in school history (.648 in 1972).
John J. Krumenacker - Class of 1985
John Krumenacker arrived at Johns Hopkins to play lacrosse at a time when the Blue Jays had played in five straight national championship games with three titles in those five title-game appearances.
Four years later, with Krumenacker playing a key role, the streak of title-game appearances had reached nine and the Blue Jays had added two more titles to their credit.
While team success has always been more important than individual accolades at Johns Hopkins, Krumenacker certainly built an impressive individual resume to go along with the team accomplishments. He earned All-America honors four times - grabbing third team honors as a freshman and sophomore and second team honors as a junior and senior. More than 25 years after his career ended, he remains one of just four midfielders in school history to earn All-America honors four times (Del Dressel, Milford Marchant, Paul Rabil) and he was the first to do this.
A complete all-around midfielder, Krumenacker closed his career with 66 goals and 54 assists to his credit. He ranks among the top 10 in school history in goals and assists by a midfielder and the top five in assists by a middie. He is one of just three midfielders in school history to notch 10 or more goals and assists in each of his four seasons (Del Dressel, Paul Rabil).
Krumenacker helped the Blue Jays to a four-year record of 50-6, including a stunning 33-1 mark at Homewood Field. Johns Hopkins won the final 31 home games of his career and claimed the NCAA Championship in 1984 and 1985 after runner-up finishes in 1982 and 1983. He served as a co-captain in 1985 and was named to the All-Time Johns Hopkins team at the conclusion of his career.
Danielle Maschuci - Class of 2000
Lacrosse Field Hockey
Danielle Maschuci played four years of lacrosse and two years of field hockey during her career at Johns Hopkins. During a time when the Blue Jay lacrosse team transitioned from Division III to Division I, it was Maschuci who was the constant, leading JHU to national prominence in Division III while establishing a base of success in Division I.
Maschuci helped Johns Hopkins to an overall record of 48-17 in her four years, including a mark of 26-7 in two years in Division III and 22-10 in the program's first two Division I seasons.
She helped the Blue Jays to a perfect 20-0 record in Centennial Conference play as a freshman and sophomore, when JHU won a pair of Centennial titles and advanced to the NCAA Semifinals (1997) and NCAA Quarterfinals (1998).
Maschuci ranks as one of the great goal-scorers in school history, having closed her career with 197 goals and 65 assists for 262 points. She ranked second in JHU history in goals, sixth in assists and second in points when she graduated and still ranks among the top seven in school history in all three categories. She did not score a goal in the first game of her career, then proceeded to register at least one in a school-record 64 straight to close her illustrious career. Her career average of 3.44 goals per game remains the Johns Hopkins standard.
The Catherine P. Carmer Award winner as a senior, Maschuci was a three-time All-America selection (1997, 1998, 2000) and the first Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse player to earn All-America honors at the Division I level. In all, she grabbed All-America honors from three different organizations during her career (USWLA, IWLCA, US Lacrosse).
Maschuci lettered in field hockey as a freshman and sophomore and helped the Blue Jays to a 20-12 record before focusing on lacrosse during her final two years at Johns Hopkins.
Dan Raedle - Class of 1997
In a program that measures success in championships, Dan Raedle ranks among the finest players ever to wear a Johns Hopkins baseball uniform. The four-year standout helped the Blue Jays to a 115-44-1 (.722) record duirng his career with a pair of Centennial Conference titles (1994 and 1997), a UAA title (1993) and three trips to the NCAA Tournament (1993, 1994, 1997) highlighting his time at Homewood.
The 1997 Centennial Conference Player of the Year and a three-time First Team All-Centennial selection, Raedle remains one of just four players in school history to earn First Team All-Centennial honors three times. He also earned First Team All-UAA honors twice (1996, 1997).
One of the most feared hitters in the nation during his career, Raedle graduated as JHU's career leader in hits (185), doubles (43), RBIs (147) and at bats (478) and among the leaders in batting average (T2nd/.387), runs scored (3rd/127) and home runs (2nd/22). Nearly 15 years after his career ended, he still ranks among the top 10 in school history in all of those categories except runs scored.
Baseball, perhaps more than any other sport, is a numbers game and Raedle's numbers certainly stand out. He was the first player in school history to collect more than 175 hits, 125 runs scored, 125 RBIs, 40 doubles and 20 home runs and he remains one of just three players in school histoty to have done this (John Christ, Brian Youchak).
Leslie Ritter Daley - Class of 2000
The greatest era in the history of the Johns Hopkins women's basketball program took place from 1994-2000. At the center of that success was Leslie Ritter, who played at Johns Hopkins from 1996-2000 and helped guide the Blue Jays to national prominence.
Ritter helped Johns Hopkins to a four-year record of 93-21 (.816) with Centennial Conference Championships in 1999 and 2000 and trips to the NCAA Tournament in each of her four years. Johns Hopkins advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals in 1997 and 1998 - these remain the only two such appearances in school history. In a program that ranks among the winningest in the nation in the last 20 years, Ritter's four years at Johns Hopkins remain the winningest four-year period in the history of the Blue Jay women's basketball program.
One of just two players in school history with 1,300 points, 400 assists and 300 steals, Ritter ranked among the top five in school history in career points (1,323), three pointers made (101) and attempted (393), assists (446) and steals (314). Perhaps most impressively, Ritter finished second in career minutes played (3,915) and fourth in games played (113) and is the school record-holder for career minutes played per game (34.6).
Ritter, the only player to record 100 or more assists (121) and steals (100) in one season (1998-99), was named the 1999 Centennial Conference Player of the Year and was twice named First Team All-Centennial. She garned First Team d3hoops.com All-America honors as a senior, when she also served as a team captain. Ritter was also a three-time All-UAA selection during her career.
Greg Roehrig - Class of 1998
The team success the Johns Hopkins men's basketball program has enjoyed over the last 25 years has certainly come on the strength of some outstanding individuals whose accomplishments mirrored and bolstered the team's record of achievement. Few enjoyed a finer or more complete career during that time than Greg Roehrig.
Roehrig guided the Blue Jays to a four-year record of 58-45, a trip to the second round of the 1998 NCAA Tournament and a runner-up finish in the Centennial Conference Tournament that same year, which concluded with a school-record 21 wins.
A three-time All-UAA selection and the only four-time All-Centennial player in school history, Roehrig grabbed Honorable Mention All-CC as a freshman, second team honors the following two years and first team accolades as a senior. He capped his career by earning Centennial Conference Player of the Year, First Team NABC All-Region and Second Team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors as a senior, when he was also awarded a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.
Roehrig's place in the Johns Hopkins record book is secure. He was the first (and remains the only) player in school history with 1,500 points and 500 rebounds and he ranks among the top 10 in school history in 14 different categories. In addition to ranking second in school history in points (1,546), field goals made (614) and minutes played (3,176), he ranks fourth in blocks (102), fifth in rebounds (559) and fifth in career scoring average (15.0).
Roehrig led the Blue Jays in scoring as a freshman, sophomore and senior and paced the team in free throw percentage and blocked shots in each of his four years.
Homer Schwartz - Class of 1964
Homer Schwartz came to Johns Hopkins after a standout prep career at nearby Baltimore Polytechnic Institute (Poly) and established himself as one of the top multi-sport athletes at JHU during the early 1960s. He played three varsity seasons of both lacrosse and basketball at a time when freshmen were ineligible for varsity athletics.
Schwartz made a name for himself at Johns Hopkins on the lacrosse field playing for Hall of Fame coach Bob Scott. A versatile midfielder, he was a three-time All-America selection as he garnered honorable mention honors as a sophomore before being named to the first team as a junior and senior. He was a consistent contributor on offense (39 goals and 21 assists) and was adept at coming up with loose balls as he accumulated 210 ground balls in his career.
Team captain as a senior, Schwartz was awarded the Penniman Award as JHU's top midfielder as a junior and senior and the Erlanger Award as the top senior on the team in 1964. He was selected to and captained the winning team in the 1964 USILA North/South All-Star game.
In basketball, Schwartz played for coaches Ross Sachs and Henry Ciccarone and was a starter and key reserve throughout his career. He was selected as a team captain as a senior.
As a senior, Schwartz earned Johns Hopkins' prestigious Barton Cup, served as the H-Club President and earned the H-Club Trophy. His involvement in the sport of lacrosse as an active player, referee and volunteer at US Lacrosse is virtually unmatched.
