CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 1994 INDUCTEES
T. Courtney Roberts ('80) | Swimming
T. Courtney Roberts is a graduate of the class of 1980 who lettered every year as swimmer and was a member of four state champions during St. X's record-setting 12 year reign. He earned All-American status six times for his specialties, the 200 and 500 meter freestyle. He won the district in these events 6 times and was state runner-up his junior and senior years at 500 meters. He was captain and MVP of the 1980 team.
Outside of St. X he swam for the Cincinnati Marlins and was a member of their 1980 National Championship Team. After graduation he attended Harvard where he was also a four-year swimming varsity letterman and two-year letterman for the water-polo team. During his senior year he captained the swim team, finished in the top sixteen at the 1984 NCAA 1500 meter freestyle championship, and was invited to the 1980 Olympic Trials. This culminated in being honored by Harvard with the Harold S. Ulen trophy, which is awarded to the individual who most exemplifies leadership, sportsmanship and team cooperation.
After graduation from college he entered and won the "Swim Around Manhattan" Race in 1985 by swimming 26 miles around the island in 7 hours and 50 minutes. He also has run in the Columbus and Boston Marathons. While doing all this, he found time to become a doctor and is now in the process of finishing his residency and setting up a practice in Cincinnati.
Martin Wolf ('75) | Basketball, Tennis
Martin Wolf is a member of the class of 1975 and the first son to join his father in our hall of fame. He was a two-sport star who quite honestly excelled equally well in both sports—tennis and basketball—playing varsity 7 out of 8 possible seasons. In basketball, he is remembered as one of the finest shooters in school history, who unfortunately, predated the three-point shot. In tennis, he was quite simply one of the best players ever.
A member of the basketball varsity from his sophomore year on, he made All-GCL and was honorable mention All-City his junior year in which he averaged 17 points and 8 rebounds per game for a team that was ranked #1 in the preseason. As a senior, he averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds per game. He was also captain, team MVP, 1st team All-GCL and All-City, and honorable mention All-Ohio (being one of the last Kentuckians to do that).
As a tennis player, he was a four-year member of the varsity, and number one singles for his last three years. During those last three years he was team MVP, All-GCL and All-City. Additionally, during his junior and senior years he was All-State. In his senior year he was sectional singles champ and state tournament semi-finalist.
After St. X, he attended Xavier University where continued to play both sports. Playing for Tay Baker, he saw his shots limited by the unfortunate coincidence of being a contemporary of Nick Daniels, but he continued as a four-year number one singles player on the Tennis Team. After college he has continued in athletics as one of, if not the finest, amateur tennis player in this area. He has won the Metropolitan Singles Championship 5 times, the most recent in 1985, and been Doubles Champion seven times. Last year in the 35 & older classification he was rated 2nd in the US and the World. Today he is a Tennis Pro, a father, an entrepreneur and strong supporter of St. X .
