Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & 25th Anniversary Reunion Celebration
|Event Description - Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & 25th Anniversary Reunion Celebration|
|Join WSU alumni and friends for the 25th Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Friday, October 14 as we honor five top athletes and one contributor: Chad Cosby ’03, Dr. W. Mack Hill, Cean Oksanish ’04, Amy (Ruffo) Panechelli ’00, Lisa Stockdale ’00 and Paul Welcome ’61, M.Ed. '64.|
Cosby was a standout pitcher who helped lead the Lancers to the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2002 and finished as the career leader in strikeouts. Hill, a longtime math professor, was one of the University’s first sports information directors, helped organize the former pep club, and served for several years on the athletic council. Oksanish led the football team to three consecutive ECAC Division III Bowl games as the starting quarterback and ended his four-years as Worcester State’s career leader in touchdowns and passing yards. Panechelli was a four-time All-MASCAC selection who helped lead the Lancers softball team to a co-regular season MASCAC Championship and the ECAC Division III North semifinals in 1997 and to the ECAC Tournament in 1999. Stockdale was an outstanding field hockey forward who led her squad to their first-ever MASCAC regular season title in 1998 as she finished her career fifth on the all-time list in points. Welcome helped lead four squads to the New England Teachers Conference Tournament championship game as his 1956-57 team won the regular season and tournament title.
This year the Athletic Hall of Fame will celebrate its 25th Anniversary. In recognition of this milestone, a special Athletic Hall of Fame Reunion Dinner will take place in conjunction with the Induction Ceremony on October 14.
