LE MOYNE COLLEGE ATHLETICS ANNOUNCES HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2012
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Le Moyne College Gold Wave will enshrine the Hall of Fame Class of 2012 on Saturday, September 29th as part of John ‘Doc’ Joiner Homecoming Weekend. The Class of 2012 includes Mike Montesano ‘95 (men’s basketball), Susan Reilly ‘88 (women’s soccer), Ted Grant ‘51 (honorary) and the 2004 Men’s Lacrosse Team.
A four-year starter for John Beilein and Scott Hicks, Montesano finished his Le Moyne career third on the all-time scoring list with 1,759 points. An NABC Division II All-American his senior season, Montesano scored a program-record 646 points and his average of 23.1 points per game was the third most in program history behind Hall of Fame members Phil Harlow (23.6 ppg) and Jene Grey (23.5 ppg). In 1995, Montesano was awarded the prestigious Rev. J.J. O’Brien Male Senior Athlete Achievement Award. Montesano currently ranks fifth in points, fourth in three-pointers (270) and first in free throw percentage (.857).
Reilly arrived at Le Moyne College as a defensive player and
transitioned to become one of the best goalkeepers in program
history. In just three years in goal, Reilly ranks third all-time
in saves with 454 and tied for second with eight shutouts.
Following graduation, Reilly joined the Dolphins staff as an
assistant coach from 1990 to 1997, helping the 1993 team to a
12-4-1 record and a #4 national ranking. Reilly currently serves as
the head girls soccer coach for Tully High School.
In honor of his service and commitment to athletics at Le Moyne, Grant will be inducted into the Hall of Fame as an honorary member. A long-time supporter of Le Moyne Athletics, the College proudly announced the naming of the basketball court to ‘Grant Court’ in honor of the commitment by Ted and his wife Jane. Grant’s service to the College extended beyond the Department of Athletics. From 1981 to 1987, Grant was a member of the College’s Board of Trustees and Co-Chair of the 1982 annual fund with then-Congressman Jim Hanley. Additionally, he served on the Oversight Committee (’92) and the Development Committee (’93) before assisting with the 1995 Annual Fund. In 1997, Grant was the recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award and was honored with the 1998 Simon Le Moyne Medal a year later.
In 2004, the Le Moyne men’s lacrosse team became the first
team in school history to capture a national championship with an
11-10, double-overtime victory over Limestone. Under Head Coach Dan
Sheehan, the Dolphins capped their season with an undefeated record
of 16-0 and the program’s fifth Northeast-10 Conference
Championship. Four Dolphins (Travis Tarr, Brandon Spillett, Rob
Trowbridge and Travis Morgia) were named All-Americans, while eight
picked up All-NE-10 honors. The 2004 men’s lacrosse team is
the second team to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
