David Tickner '73 and Gary Seivold '83 have been inducted into the Lacrosse Hall of Fame by the Baltimore Chapter of US Lacrosse as part of the Class of 2018.
Tickner was a triple threat at Gilman: named All-Metro in lacrosse, All-State in football, and was a two-time MSA wrestling champion. In 2006 he was included in the Baltimore Sun's "40 years of Sun athletic standouts." He went on to lacrosse glory at Princeton, where he was the first player with 30 goals and 30 assists in the same season, a record which stood until 2015. He was also the first Princeton player to be a three-time first-team All-Ivy League selection. (Learn more about David's impact at Princeton in this article.) As generations of Gilman alumni will remember, Dave is the son of Reginald Tickner, who taught at Gilman for 41 years and served as assistant head to several Gilman headmasters. Dave's brother, Robert, is a member of Gilman's Class of 1970. The Tickner family legacy lives on at Gilman in the Tickner Writing Center.
Seivold comes from a lacrosse family. He joins his brother Joe Seivold Jr. '82 in the Hall of Fame. At Gilman he was an All-Maryland selection at attack in 1982 and 1983 and was named a high school All-American. At UNC he earned the rare distinction of being named an All-American in each of his four years. He scored the game winning goal for the Tar Heels in their 1986 NCAA championship, earning the NCAA MVP award.
