The Athletic Hall of Fame, created in 1989, honors those who have brought distinction to themselves and Connecticut College through their achievement, commitment, sportsmanship and leadership in athletics. The Athletic Hall of Fame gallery is in the Charles B. Luce Field House.

Athletic Hall of Fame inducts four alumni

At a ceremony in April 2015, three Connecticut College alumni and a legendary coach were inducted to the College’s Athletic Hall of Fame:

  • Kerry Newhall '98 (track and field) —A three-time All-ECAC and All-New England competitor, she became the ECAC Division III and New England Division III champion in the javelin in 1997. The 1996 All-American still holds the College javelin record of 131 feet, 3 inches.
  • Timothy Boyd '01 (lacrosse and ice hockey) — He was a three-time All-American, first team All-NESCAC and first team All-New England midfielder, and still holds the College record for goals by a midfielder with 101. He helped the men's hockey team advance to the conference title game in 1998.
  • Adam Fitzgerald '03 (track and field and cross country) — The 2003 All-American lead the 2002 men's cross country squad that placed fourth in the NCAA Regional Championship and 20th at the national level. He still holds the College record in 10,000-meters, an event he won at the 2002 New England Championship and the 2003 NESCAC Championship.
  • Anne Parmenter (coach, field hockey and lacrosse) — She led the field hockey team to six Division III Championship appearances over 14 years, and compiled a 30-17-1 record from 1994-96. In lacrosse, her teams went 107-47 from 1991-2001, making nine ECAC tournament appearances, capturing two conference titles and earning the program's first berth in the NCAA tournament in 1996.
