  • Quaker Spotlight: Joe Dooley
    May 23, 2002
    When Joe Dooley left Guilford after his sophomore year in 2000, he didn’t think he would return.

However, before the end of his junior year at the Division I school he realized he missed the camaraderie and family atmosphere he found at Guilford. Thanks in part to the savings earned by living at home and attending George Mason, he returned to Guilford for his senior year and turned in one of the most dominating pitching performances in the program’s 110-year history.
