MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Saint Anselm College Department of Athletics inducted seven individuals representing five varsity sports and one special recognition nominee into its Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, Jan. 26, in a ceremony at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
The seven-member class consisted of Matt Cahill '06 (Men's Basketball), Lauren (Glancy) Patterson '07 (Women's Lacrosse), Ken Kessaris '02 (Baseball), Margaret (Morin) Miller '91 (Women's Soccer), Kristin Penney '00 (Women's Basketball), Kris Tardio '00 (Men's Basketball) and Don Healy '60 (Special Recognition).
The event started with a reception for the inductees and their friends and family. Fr. John Fortin, O.S.B., a 1971 graduate of Saint Anselm, offered the evening's invocation and he was followed by Head Coach Jill Gagnon of the College's national runner-up softball program from one year ago. Gagnon offered the opening remarks for the ceremony and was followed by Director of Athletics Daron Montgomery.
Each of the honorees was introduced by a friend, family member or former teammate and formally presented for induction.
Established in 1980, the Saint Anselm College Athletics Hall of Fame recognizes student-athletes, coaches and athletics administrators who have brought recognition to themselves and the College through their efforts on and off the playing surface. The Hall of Fame was revived in 2017 after a 10-year hiatus when the Class of 2007 was finally inducted along with two additional candidates from the Class of 2017.
