Seven to be inducted into LWC Athletics Hall of Fame

Seven individuals are set to be inducted into the Lindsey Wilson College Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining Center.

Lindsey Wilson will honor two classes this year, the 20th and 21st classes, after last year's ceremony was postponed due to COVID-19.

Krista Burton, Terran Duncan, and Tyler Sharpe are set to be enshrined as the 20th class of the LWC Athletics Hall of Fame. Debbie McGuinness, Gavin Oldham, Hishamar Falconer and Beth Boisvert will all represent this year's class.

Burton competed for the Blue Raider women's golf team from 2006-10, while Duncan donned the blue and white for the women's basketball team from 2004-08. Sharpe competed on the men's golf team from 2002-06.

McGuinness and Falconer competed on the women's soccer team from 2001-04 and 2003-06, respectively. Oldham played on the men's soccer team from 2000-03 while Boisvert served as LWC athletics administrative assistant for 12 years.

"I want to thank the selection committee for choosing another outstanding class for induction to our hall of fame," said Lindsey Wilson Athletics Director Willis Pooler. "These individuals are legends in the history of Lindsey Wilson athletics. Beth played an integral role in our department for 17 years. She was a selfless human being who always put others before herself. She was always there for me and our staff, not only at work, but in our personal lives. She helped raise children and take care of our pets. I miss her every day.

"Debbie, Gavin and Messam (Hishamar) were outstanding student-athletes, but even better people. I have recruited, coached, and worked with all 3 of these individuals and they are people of great character, and integrity and have exceptional leadership qualities." Pooler added. "Krista, Terran, and Tyler set a standard in their respective programs and made lasting contributions to the golf and women's basketball programs as well as to Lindsey Wilson College.

"Their accomplishments at Lindsey Wilson speak loudly. I'm excited to see them back on campus on September 10."

The 2021 and 2022 class will be inducted at 11amCT on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Lindsey Wilson College Athletics Hall of Fame Celebration at the Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.
