Class of 1987
Pam was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007. Her citation is below:
Webster defines pioneer as one “who precedes” or “establishes a foundation.” That is the essence of Pam Loughman, Class of 1987. She established the standard for women’s tennis in the modern era of intercollegiate athletics at Washington College, and her contributions to the program equal those of the legendary Jean Harshaw Lesko ‘37 and four-time All-American Tracy Peel Coutts ‘91.
Pam was her team’s captain, most valuable player, and No. 1 singles and doubles player in each of her four years here – a resumé of durability, versatility, and consistency that is unmatched in program history. Washington College never had a losing season in the Loughman era. If there were a dream team for women’s tennis, Pam would be a starter. Her coach of two years, Penny Fall, said Pam was the best player she ever coached.
Pam ranks sixth on the all-time singles list with a .750 winning percentage, trailing only Hall of Fame inductee Tracy Peel Coutts and All-Americans Anabel Flores, Paulina Sierra, Pam Hendrickson, and Ne’ko Browder. Punctuating a brilliant college career in 1987, she won the Chesapeake Women’s Athletic Conference singles championship and received Washington College’s prestigious Senior Athletic Council Award.
Pam’s contributions to the Washington College community went beyond the tennis courts. She was president of the Honor Society and treasurer of the Student Government Association in her senior year on the Chestertown campus, and graduated with a degree in English literature.
In 1992 she earned a juris doctor degree from Brooklyn Law School. She is a legal researcher in the real estate department at the University of Pennsylvania and maintains a small private law practice.
Pam is married to Markus Kreuzer, a professor of political science at Villanova University. They have two children: Julia, 6, and Lukas, 9. Pam and her family live in Merion, Pa.
Washington College considers it an honor and a privilege to induct Pam Loughman into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this sixth day of October, 2007.
