Athletic Hall of Fame

The Saint Mary's College Athletic Hall of Fame was instituted in 1993 by Athletic Director Jo-Ann Nester. Nester, who served as athletic director from 1984 to 1993, was instrumental in the Department's move from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Now an honoree herself, Nester is among 32 individuals and four teams currently in the Hall of Fame.

Summer 2014 marks the next class of inductees. Three individuals and two team join the ranks of Saint Mary's Athletic Hall of Fame honorees in conjuction with the College's Reunion Weekend festivities at the end of May and beginning of June. The 1975-76 and 1976-77 basketball teams, Janet Libbing Prendergast (soccer, basketball, sofball, ’92), Michelle Limb (softball, ’96), and Andrea Arena Wade (softball, ’98) will all formally inducted into the Hall of Fame at a celebratory dinner on Friday, May 30 on the Saint Mary's College campus.
