CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THE 2019 UMW ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME BANQUET

Established in 1996, the University of Mary Washington Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes the top individuals and teams in the history of the athletic program at the school.

The University of Mary Washington Athletic Department is proud to announce the 2018-19 Athletic Hall of Fame Induction class. Inductees include former NCAA record holder and All-American Caitlin Erickson Moore ’08, All-America women’s basketball record breaker Liz Hickey ’08, standout baseball star Joe Kruper ’92, men’s basketball star Mike Lee ’07, and long-time successful coach of women’s soccer and men’s lacrosse Kurt Glaeser.

Erickson graduated as the NCAA Division III season record holder for points per game in a season, and still ranks in the top five all-time in Division III in points and assists in a season. Upon graduation, she held school records for career points (303), season points (143), season assists (81), and points (14) and assists (10) in a game. She led the nation in assists per game and points per game in her senior season en route to All-America honors. She continues to represent UMW in a positive light as the highly successful head coach of the program in which she thrived.

Hickey is the only athlete in any sport in school history to have her number retired, as she graduated as the only three-time All-American in women’s basketball history. She ended her career as the NCAA Division III career leader in blocked shots, with 509, and helped the Eagles to three NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 2007 Division III Final Four. A two-time CAC Player of the Year and two-time regional player of the year, Hickey scored 1,370 points in her career, and was named as the UMW Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2008. She was subsequently named to the Capital Athletic Conference Silver Anniversary Team, honoring the top 25 players in conference history.

Kruper was at the forefront of Mary Washington developing into a national power in the early 1990s, and still ranks as the program’s all-time leader in career triples. He is one of only 10 Mary Washington players to be named as a first team all-conference selection three times, and was a two-time all-region selection. He batted .430 as a freshman en route to conference player of the year honors, and struck out just one time the entire season. He posted a career batting average of .384, with an on-base percentage of .490 and a slugging average of .563. His defensive prowess included a .975 career fielding average, as he committed just 13 errors in four years in 520 chances.

Lee was the top player as Mary Washington emerged as a regional power in the mid 2000s, finishing his career with 1,564 points, the second-most in program history. He remains the school’s record holder in three-point baskets in a game (11), three-pointers in a career (323), as well as three-point attempts in a game, season, and career. He was awarded the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2004, and also gained first team All-CAC honors in a career that saw the Eagles win 68 games, the most in any four-year span in program history to that point.

Glaeser was a longtime successful coach for the women’s soccer and men’s lacrosse programs at Mary Washington, leading both to NCAA Tournament appearances. In soccer, he coached the Eagles to 12 conference titles and 12 NCAA Championship appearances, including the final four in 1992 and the elite eight in 1997 and 1998. His 244 victories rank as among the most in Division III history, and his 71.0 win percentage is among the best ever in Division III. Glaeser also led the men’s lacrosse program to the NCAA Tournament in 2014, ranking as high as 12th in the nation. His combined 428 career wins in 27 years leave a lasting legacy in both programs’ histories.

The induction will take place on Friday, February 8, 2019, at the UMW University Center.
