Media and fans are often quick to label a program a dynasty, but there is no mistaking the dominance of Mount St. Mary’s women’s basketball upon its arrival in the Northeast Conference in the late 1980s. Playing on teams loaded with top-tier talent, Susie Rowlyk outshined them all.

Rowlyk is one of four players in league history to twice earn distinction as NEC Player of the Year. She won the award as a junior in 1993-94 and closed out her four-year career with a second honor in 1994-95. Rowlyk was also a three-time All-NEC selection and a member of the NEC All-Newcomer team as a freshman.

On a grander scale, Rowlyk’s success on the court earned her a spot on the NEC 20th and 25th Anniversary All-Time teams.

Along with her individual accolades, Rowlyk helped lead the Mount to four NEC regular season titles and three NEC Tournament crowns during her time in Emmitsburg. She was voted the 1994 NEC Tournament Most Valuable Player and earned a spot on three NEC All-Tournament teams.

The Mount’s record during her four years was a remarkable 93-21 overall and 64-6 against NEC opposition. She also led the school to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances, taking on Iowa in 1994 and Alabama in 1995.
A member of the Mount St. Mary’s Sports Hall of Fame, Rowlyk finished her illustrious career as the program’s fourth all-time leading scorer (1,502 points) and fifth on the career rebounding (766) list.

Rowlyk’s success wasn’t just limited to the basketball court. She earned an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship and was a two-time NEC Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

“Mount St. Mary’s is very proud that Susie Rowlyk has been selected as a member of the Northeast Conference Hall of Fame,” said Lynne Robinson, Mount St. Mary’s Director of Athletics. “Susie is one of the most outstanding women’s basketball players in Mount St. Mary’s and Northeast Conference history. The Mount dominated the league during Susie’s four years, winning four NEC regular season titles and three NEC tournament championships. While Susie earned numerous athletic and academic accolades during her distinguished career at the Mount, she was also exemplary in all aspects of her life. Susie’s passion for excellence, hard work ethic and contagious positive attitude were inspiring to everyone. She will long be remembered for her legacy as an outstanding scholar-athlete, as well as a wonderful teammate and friend. We congratulate Susie on this tremendous honor and much deserved recognition.”
