Hall of Fame Induction Class of 2015
Percy Moore’s name was associated with virtually every one of the Goucher College men’s soccer program’s scoring records when his playing career came to its conclusion in 1995. And 20 years later as he becomes the sport’s first inductee into the institution’s Athletics Hall of Fame, it still is.
Moore demonstrated right from the start what an offensive force he was going to be by scoring at least one time in 10 of the 17 games the Gophers played in 1991, his freshman season. That included a four-goal performance against Arcadia, something which previously had never been accomplished in the program’s short history. However, teammate Dan Jarrett also accounted for four of the goals in the 16-0 victory that day, so the two of them are credited with establishing the single-game record on October 26, 1991 that has been matched two more times, most recently in 2007.
Moore finished with a team-high total of 16 goals in 1991, and that, too, remains a school record that Moore himself equaled the following year, when he again spread the 16 goals he scored over 10 games. Radcliffe Roye is the only other male soccer player from Goucher with a 16-goal season, a feat he performed in 1995.
As a junior forward in 1993, Moore supplied the Gophers with 12 goals, including the two they needed to earn a 2-1 victory over Catholic in the quarterfinals of the Capital Athletic Conference postseason tournament.
Moore’s senior year at Goucher began with him contributing three goals to a 5-3 victory over Frostburg State. He went on to score seven more times during the 1994 season, raising his career total to 54 goals.
Just as he was when he graduated, Moore is the program’s all-time leader in goals and points (133) and runner-up in assists (25).
Moore’s 54 career goals remained a record for the Capital Athletic Conference into the 21st century before it was bettered by Ryan Olsen from St. Mary’s (Md.). He was also the first and so far the only male soccer player from Goucher to earn first-team All-CAC honors in each of his four years of eligibility and was the school’s only representative on the CAC’s Silver Anniversary Team, which came out in 2014-15 and was essentially a compilation of the conference’s top players during its first 25 years of intercollegiate competition.
Moore, who currently serves on Goucher’s Board of Trustees, was also a member of the school’s first men’s lacrosse team.
Kim Raley Graybill
There can’t be many collegiate swimmers who relish the thought of competing in Buffalo during the month of March. But that’s where the 1992 NCAA Division III Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships were held and where Kim Raley Graybill became Goucher College’s first swimmer to earn All-America honors.
A product of Towson High School, Raley was a highly recruited swimmer who first landed at the University of South Carolina, before transferring to Goucher and joining the swimming team in 1991-92. At the Capital Athletic Conference Championships that year, she took first place in both the 200-yard backstroke and the 200-yard individual medley, and was runner-up in the 100-yard breaststroke.
She and P.J. Stamnos from St. Mary’s (Md.) were named Co-Female Swimmers of the Year in the CAC for 1991-92.
Raley was the first female athlete ever from Goucher to compete at an NCAA Division III championship event as she qualified that year in three events. She placed 30th overall in the 200 IM and 26th in the 100 breast. Her time of 1:09.49 in the 100 breast remains the fastest in school history.
Raley’s top performance at the NCAA Division III meet came in the 200 breast, where she was clocked at 2:29.73, good for eighth place. The top eight finishers in each event are recognized as Division III All-Americans.
In addition to still owning the fastest 100 breast time in the history of Goucher’s women’s swimming program, she is the school record-holder in the 200 breast (2:27.42). Her times of 2:30.68 in the 200 breast and 2:16.91 in the 200 IM still stand as facility records for the von Borries Pool, and only one person has since turned in a faster time than her former school record of 2:13.31 in the 200 IM, and that is Stephanie LaGue, who was inducted into the Goucher College Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013.
Raley was also on Goucher’s swimming roster in 1992-93.
Patte Zumbrun inherited, as she once put it, “historically one of Goucher’s treasured legacies” when she was appointed director and head coach of its equestrian program in 1987. She spent the next quarter of a century not only developing one of the top riding programs in the mid-Atlantic region, but also turning Goucher into one of the premier collegiate equestrian locations in the entire nation.
Zumbrun, who was employed by the college since 1978, officially retired at the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year.
Under her guidance, the Gophers captured six Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Zone IV Region I titles during a span of 11 years and were crowned Zone IV champions for the first time in 2011-12, which allowed them to advance to the IHSA National Horse Show as one of 15 intercollegiate riding programs in the Collegiate Cup Hunter Seat team competition. In fact, four times Zumbrun-coached teams qualified to advance to IHSA nationals, where they placed 14th overall in 2007, in a tie for seventh in 2012 and a tie for fifth in 2013, and in sole possession of sixth in 2014.
In two of the first three years that a panel of head coaches and athletic administrators selected an All-Goucher Team to recognize the 10 most distinguished student-athletes and most outstanding coach during an academic year, the coaching honor went to Zumbrun.
Goucher’s equestrian facility features two full-care barns, 10 turnout paddocks, indoor and outdoor riding rings, multiple rolling riding fields and acres of trails, and many of these were improvements and/or additions made during Zumbrun’s coaching tenure.
Zumbrun’s induction into the Goucher College Athletics Hall of Fame comes less than one month after she was presented the prestigious IHSA Lifetime Achievement Award, joining 22 other equestrian team coaches who received the award during the organization’s 48-year history. In addition, she is a two-time recipient of the Professional Service Award from the United State Hunter Jumper Association/American National Riding Commission.
