POULTNEY, Vt. – Green Mountain College announced its 2014 class for its annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony which will be held during Alumni and Family Weekend from September 26-28. This year the selection committee is proud to induct three individuals and one team.
Alan Madden (’98) will join Peter Lundvall (‘02) and Erica Knolhoff (‘03) as the three individuals who will be inducted. The 2000 women’s soccer team will also be inducted, making that team the second team to enter the Hall of Fame. The 2000 women’s soccer team will also be the second team in as many years to be celebrated.
Alan Madden was an extremely talented striker for the Eagles during his tenure at Green Mountain. He tops the all-time list at GMC for goals scored in a career and is also tied for third all-time in career assists. Madden’s scoring ability helped to lead his teams to a collective 69-10-5 record which led to two NAIA Area X Championships and several individual awards regionally and nationally.
Peter Lundvall was one of the best downhill skiers to ever don a Green Mountain racing suit. He posted incredible finishes virtually every race and had close to 20 career victories during his time with the ski team. His performances helped the ski team claim first overall spot within its division and finish in the top three multiple times in the national championships. He, too, was recognized both regionally and nationally for his accomplishments.
A three-sport athlete in basketball, soccer and softball, Erica Knolhoff was constantly involved in athletics. She is a member of GMC’s 1000 career point club in basketball and lies atop of the career list for points scored. She led the basketball team to a conference championship and an NAIA National Tournament appearance. Knolhoff’s defensive contributions on the soccer pitch twice helped her team win the conference and earn two trips to the NAIA National Tournament. As a shortstop and pitcher, she ranks prominently amongst the top-10 in virtually every offensive category.
The 2000 women’s soccer team played to a perfect regular season record, failing to lose a single game while scor 150 goals against just 11 allowed. The women were crowned as conference and regional champions and made an appearance at the NAIA National Tournament. By the end of the season the Eagles were ranked as the sixth best team in the country within the NAIA.
Congratulations to all of the future 2014 inductees! We look forward to celebrating all of your accomplishments during the ceremony on Saturday, September 27 at 5:30 p.m.
