Mary played both basketball and field hockey for Providence College. When Mary was named as PC's 1975-76 woman athlete of the year, her astonishment at receiving the accolade caused her to exclaim "wait until my father finds out about this!"

In addition to her outstanding abilities on the court, Mary was also instrumental in saving McVinney Hall from a potentially devastating fire in September of 1975.

These wind breaker jackets were worn by Mary, which she generously donated to the College for its Centennial Anniversary.
