BALTIMORE, Md. – Goucher College will break ground on the Evelyn Dyke Schroedl '62 Tennis Center in celebration of the 101-year-old alumna and former staff member on Friday, March 1, 2019. The new Goucher tennis facility will include 12 outdoor courts and will not only be used for Goucher women and men's tennis teams, including the defending three-time Landmark Conference champions, but it will also be open to the greater Baltimore community, as well.
Schroedl, a Baltimore native and an avid tennis player, couldn't afford college after high school and instead attended part-time as an adult student while working full-time in the Goucher College registrar's office. She graduated at the age of 42 and eventually became Goucher's registrar. She began working at Goucher in 1949 and worked at the college for more than 30 years.
