WESTON, Mass. – The Regis College Athletics Department is now accepting nominations for the 2011 inductions into the Regis College Athletic Hall of Fame. Current student athletes are ineligible for nominations and all graduate nominees should be at least five (5) years removed from their time spent at the college.
Potential candidates should embody the mission of Regis College and have supported the Pride in a positive way. The following are two main criteria for a potential nomination:
- The person should have given significant contributions to the sports program at Regis College as an athlete, coach, administrator or "supporter of athletics".
- The nominee needs to have shown leadership qualities evidenced both on and off campus with regard to sports.
A reminder that current student-athletes are not eligible for nomination.
The Hall of Fame was founded in 1988 and its first two inductees were Olive Nolan and Edwina Hughes. Nolan and Hughes served as co-Directors of Physical Education and Athletics from 1948 through 1988.
Most recently, there were three inductees into the Regis College Athletics Hall of Fame back in 2009. Laura Galopim was inducted in 2009 after a stellar career at Regis. Galopim was captain of the softball team from 1995-1997 and in 1994 was the NCAA Division III Stolen Base Champion. Galopim also lettered in volleyball and was a recipient of the Mother Regis Award.
A pair of basketball teams were also inducted in 2009. The 1995-96 women's basketball team entered the Hall of Fame for their tremendous campaign during their season. The Pride won both the Commonwealth Coast Conference regular and postseason titles and made an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The next year's squad also has been inducted into the Hall after winning the 1996-97 CCC regular season title followed by a birth into the ECAC Tournament.
