TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State announced Friday that five former athletes will be inducted into the ISU Athletic Hall of Fame in February.
The 16th class of the ISU Athletics Hall of Fame will include George Chestnut, Brian Dorsett, Chris Hicks, Julie Koebcke and John Sherman Williams.
Chestnut was a football, basketball and baseball standout from 1932-33; Dorsett a catcher for the ISU baseball team who played in the major leagues; Hicks an All-American offensive lineman for the football team in 1975; Koebcke a 3-time All-American in discus; and Williams played basketball for ISU from 1983-86 and is the Sycamores’ second all-time leading scorer.
The induction ceremony will be held on at 11 a.m. Feb. 16 prior to the Indiana State-Illinois State basketball game at Hulman Center.
• Pugh named All-American — Saint Mary-of-the-Woods player Erin Pugh was named a U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association first-team All-American.
The Terre Haute North graduate compiled 13 goals this season for the Pomeroys in 13 matches.
Coach Mike Aycock said Pugh’s season is second only to South Vermillion graduate Sarah Guinn’s school record of 16 goals set in 2005.
In addition to Pugh’s honor, three SMWC soccer players, Amanda Clemons, Jana Orman and Lauren Sullivan, were named to the USCAA National All-Academic Team. Orman and Sullivan are also Terre Haute natives.
• ISU players earn awards — At Evansville, Alyssa Ramsey and Sarah Whiteley were named second-team All-Missouri Valley Conference at a banquet Thursday prior to the MVC Tournament, which the Sycamores did not qualify for.
Ramsey, a key defender and an ISU junior, was honorable mention and made the all-freshman team two seasons ago.
Whiteley was ISU’s leader this fall with 14 points on seven goals in her senior season, including two-game winning shots.
Senior Lauren Podolski was tabbed an honorable mention selection, even though she missed four games due to a nagging hamstring injury. Podolski, who had three goals and three assists this season, was a first-team All-MVC performer the previous three seasons.
