Assumption Announces 2018 Hall of Fame Class:
The Assumption College athletic department is excited to welcome the newest members of the Assumption Athletics Hall of Fame, who were inducted on October, 26, 2018. This year's inductees were: Larry Bornheimer '89 (basketball), Karen Doucette '85 (basketball/softball), Paul Duquette '81 (men's lacrosse), Bill Hodge '91 (men's soccer), Stephanie (Fleming) Montessi '02 (field hockey) and Lauren Raswyck '08 (volleyball).
With a rich tradition spanning decades, Assumption College Athletics has captured numerous regional championships and Northeast-10 titles, while also boasting numerous All-Americans, Academic All-Americans and Players of the Year. Beginning in 1966, Assumption College established the Athletics Hall of Fame to recognize some of the top athletes in Greyhound history. That history continues to be celebrated today as the College honors five individuals each year for their outstanding contributions to the Assumption College athletic tradition. This year's class honored individuals from multiple sports at the College.
The Hall of Fame Induction Dinner is held every other year in the Tsotsis Family Academic Center and serves as the kickoff for Homecoming Weekend. The Assumption College Athletics Hall of Fame honors any former alumnus who has attained outstanding recognition or superior accomplishments in any varsity sport. Individuals become eligible five years after graduation from the College and will be selected on the basis of playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and the athlete's contribution to his/her team(s) and to Assumption College in general.
Nominations for the 2020 Hall of Fame class will be open until January 1, 2020. Nominations may be submitted by clicking on the online nomination form here.
The Hall of Fame Committee will meet every other spring to select the upcoming class, which will be announced in the late Spring for a Fall induction date. Each of the inductees will have their likeness displayed on the Athletics Hall of Fame wall, which is located in the lobby of Laska Gymnasium.
