UC San Diego Announces Athletics Hall of Fame

LA JOLLA, Calif. - More than 30 years after becoming a member of the NCAA and with 30 team national championships to its credit, the UC San Diego Athletics Department will begin honoring its finest student-athletes, coaches, staff and supporters with the creation of an Athletics Hall of Fame. The announcement was made Monday by Director of Athletics Earl W. Edwards.

Nominations for an eight-person inaugural class have been opened to the public. It is anticipated that the first honorees will be inducted in October of 2013 as part of the department’s annual Homecoming events.

“This is an exciting time for us as it is another milestone for where we are as an athletics department,” said Edwards. "We have had a relatively short, but illustrious history and the Hall of Fame will allow us to reflect on our past as well as provide another opportunity to engage and honor our alumni athletes.”

The nominations will be collected over the next several weeks and added to names already identified by the UCSD Athletics Department as potential Hall of Fame candidates. A committee, headed by Edwards and Senior Associate Athletic Directors Ken Grosse and Wendy Taylor May and including representatives from the UCSD coaching staff and alumni student-athlete population, will narrow the list of potential inductees and determine the make-up of the initial eight.

Student-athletes may be considered for Hall of Fame induction 10 years after the completion of their eligibility. Coaches and staff qualify following three years of separation from UC San Diego or 25 years of consecutive service.
