Athletic Hall of Fame
The purpose of the Albion College Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize those individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the achievements and prestige of Albion College in the field of athletics. Men and women are honored either by virtue of their performance on athletic teams representing the College, or by meritorious efforts in years after graduation. An athlete must have earned two letters in one sport or one letter in three or more sports. Women who graduated before 1975 must have participated in the Women’s Athletic Association (WAA). An athlete must have been an alumnus/alumna for at least 10 years to be eligible for selection.
The Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2012 includes All-American swimmers Christopher J. Behling, ’94, Kellie S. Gehrs, ’95, and Molly K. Maloney, ’00, All-America football offensive lineman Martin P. “Chip” Heyboer, ’95, All-America football defensive back David S. Lefere, ’97, MIAA football offensive most valuable player Kyle A. Klein, ’97, MIAA baseball most valuable player James M. Corbeil, ’88, two-time all-MIAA hurdles champion Garth A. Richey, ’60, football captain Ronald J. Wasczenski, ’77, longtime coaches D. Scott Frew and Keith B. Havens and the 1982 men's track & field and 1993 women's tennis teams.
Athletic administrators or others who are not alumni must have served the College at least 10 years to be eligible. An athletic administrator can be selected immediately after leaving the institution or immediately after retirement. A team is eligible if it has won an MIAA Championship and 10 years have elapsed since competition.
