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.
Wesleyan’s Athletics Hall of Fame, both online and on campus, is filled with entertaining and enlightening accounts of Cardinals past. Theirs are exciting stories of accomplishment, character, perseverance, courage, loyalty, teamwork and generosity—a rich and proud tradition that will inspire current and future scholar-athletes.
The Wesleyan University Athletics Hall of Fame (HOF) 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.
