Medaille Announces the Creation of Athletic Hall of Fame
Medaille College has announced the creation of an Athletic Hall of Fame, which will induct its inaugural class of honorees on September 5. In recognition of Medaille’s two decades of intercollegiate sports, the Medaille College Athletics Department will permanently honor the finest Mavericks athletes, coaches and contributors in College history.
The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be part of the Medaille Pride Awards Social, held in the Buffalo campus Events Arena at 5 p.m. on September 5. Community members may secure a spot at the event by registering for free at medailleawards18.eventbrite.com.
To date, more than 3,300 student athletes have represented Medaille in athletic competition, and the inaugural class of 2018 will honor four standouts. In addition, the Hall will enshrine the former College president who started a program that has achieved tremendous success.
Medaille’s inaugural Hall of Fame inductees include:
Kevin I. Sullivan — The late Kevin I. Sullivan served Medaille for nearly 30 years in a variety of roles, and was College president from 1987 to 2001. A former athlete himself, Sullivan was instrumental in the establishment and creation of Medaille’s athletics program and its transition from the National Small College Athletic Association to NCAA Division III and, eventually, the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.
Gary Boughton, II ’09 — From 2006 to 2009, men’s soccer standout Gary Boughton II rewrote the record books for both the Mavericks and the NCAA. When his collegiate career ended, his 82 assists were the most by any player in NCAA Division III men’s soccer history — a record that still stands.
Brandon Lumadue ’11 — Brandon Lumadue holds nearly every important statistical batting record in Medaille baseball history, including batting average, hits, triples, home runs and runs batted in. As a senior captain, he led the Mavericks to the winningest season in program history.
Andrea Belis ’02 — One of Medaille’s first student-athlete superstars, Andrea Belis was a four-year member of the women’s volleyball and basketball teams, while also spending two years on the softball and women’s lacrosse teams. She holds various College volleyball records, and her basketball stats rank in the top 10 in Medaille history.
Adam Baker — Considered one of the greatest student athletes in school history, Adam Baker holds numerous statistical records. In softball, Baker led Medaille to its only AMCC Regular Season Championship, and on the basketball court Baker helped the Mavs become regulars in the NCAA Tournament.
