Wesleyan inducted its eighth class to the Athletics Hall of Fame on Oct. 21. The class features Bill Brooks ’49, P ’71, Jenna Flateman Posner ’04, Alexis Keeler ’02, Peter “Kosty” Kostacopoulos, Don Russell, and the 1994 Wesleyan women’s soccer team.
Wesleyan’s celebrated athletic history includes world class and national caliber athletes, Olympic medalists, NCAA champions, regional titleholders and teams that have won New England titles and placed in national competition. It includes accomplished graduates and coaches who have been innovators and contributors to the evolution of a sport. At the heart of Wesleyan athletics are the students—training, competing and pursuing excellence as Wesleyan scholar-athletes.
The Wesleyan University Athletics Hall of Fame was founded in 2006 through the collaborative work of the Athletics Advisory Council (AAC), the Athletic Department and the Office of University Relations. The HOF is on display in the Warren Street lobby of the Freeman Athletic Center.
