Our listening area is not shy when it comes to halls of fame.  Most of our schools have them and of course hordes of people flock to our region each year for the activities at the "big one"; the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

Being inducted into a hall of fame can be a special moment in one's life.  A pinnacle, if you will, to a superb achievement, career or occupation.  The latest news about a Hall of Fame comes from one of our area colleges, Hartwick College..

Hartwick College Athletics will induct seven of its former stars into its Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 2, as a part of True Blue Weekend. The list includes stalwarts Steve Long '79 (Men's Soccer), Dick Cartwright '79 (Men's Cross Country/Track & Field), Jennifer Brassell '93 (Field Hockey/Women's Lacrosse), Jay Kalbach '97 (Men's Swimming & Diving), Greg Balcavage '01 (Football), Jemma Dendy Young '14 (Water Polo), and Jade Woodend '15 (Women's Swimming & Diving).

With the addition of this year's class, Hartwick will have inducted 162 former student-athletes, coaches, teams, and supporters into its Hall of Fame. It honors those who have made outstanding contributions to Hartwick's intercollegiate athletics programs. Its purpose is to perpetuate the memory of those who have brought distinction, honor, and excellence to Hartwick through their athletic accomplishments.
