Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall Of Fame

The Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall of Fame was not conceived; it was created through eighty-one years of effort by thousands of dedicated men and women who sought to achieve to the best of their physical capacity while pursuing the development of their mental capabilities.


Hall of Fame Class of 2013

The Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2013: Sam Stovall '77, Dawn Iberer Walsh '04, Kristen Bruschi Wade '05 and Michael McCabe '01 (left to right).

On the gridiron, the diamond, the court, the greensward, the track, the mat — the arena of intercollegiate competition — they sought to bring glory to their Alma Mater and to themselves.

For their dedication, hours of practice, years of training to bring their bodies to peak of achievement, we offer our respect — our gratitude. We recognize that their efforts in the brief moments of combat were the culmination of mountainous preparation and devotion.


Hall of Fame Class of 2012

The Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2012: Scott Orens '76, Matt Loesch '07, Victor Lea '83, Karen Mount Elson '06 and Matt Bernardo '04 (left to right).

They have enjoyed the sweet nectar of victory and the bitter essence of agonizing defeat. Their combined efforts have filled the record books for Muhlenberg College.

We salute them all.


Hall of Fame Class of 2011

The Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2011. Front row (left to right), Shenon Hottenstein Gerhard '91, Jason Brader '99, Katrina Beck '01, John Brodowski '05, Amy Schmidt '06. Back row, members of the 1991 softball team.

We extend the laurel wreath — the Hall of Fame medal — to a few — a small representation of the many who wrote the record. Many wait on the sidelines to join them. To all we give our congratulations.

NEVER IN THE PROUD HISTORY OF MUHLENBERG COLLEGE WILL THEIR NAMES BE LOST FROM MEMORY.
