2006 M Club Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

April 01, 2010

Mount Union College will induct seven individuals into its M Club Hall of Fame on Saturday, September 30, at halftime of the Mount Union-Heidelberg football game in Mount Union Stadium.

The seven inductees include John Bouloubasis (football/class of 1991), Ken Edelman (football/'91), Bill Eyer (football/'88), Jan Freshley (baseball/'74), Jennifer Grower (softball/'91), Dave Lasecki (football/'91), and Sandy Womack (wrestling/'92).

Bouloubasis, a three-year starter and team captain who won the Mike Gregory Award as the best offensive lineman in the Ohio Athletic Conference in 1990, was also an All-American center that season.

Edelman, a three-time First-Team All-OAC selection ('88,'89 '90), earned All-American status as a place kicker in 1990. He holds the Raider record for the longest field goal made (47 yards) and still holds the NCAA Division III mark for field goals made in one season (20) and career field goals made (52).

Eyer, a four-year letterwinner ('84-'87) at wide receiver, was a two-time First-Team All-OAC selection ('86 & '87), who finished his career among the Raider career leaders in receptions (121 catches/1,915 yards receiving & 13 TDs).

Freshley, a two-time team MVP as a pitcher on the Raider baseball team, holds the Mount Union record for the lowest ERA in a season (0.53) set in 1973. He posted a career mark of 12-1 with four saves. During his senior year, he went 8-1.

Grower, a third baseman and four-year letterwinner, earned First-Team All-American honors in 1991, hitting a career-best .330 in the process. She led the nation in triples in 1989 with seven.

Lasecki, a team captain and three-year starter, earned the Bill Edwards Award as the top linebacker in the conference in 1990 as well as First-Team All-American recognition that same season. He also held the Raider single-season record for tackles in a season (140 in '90).

Womack was a four-year letterwinner (1989-92), three-time OAC Champion ('90, '91 '92), and a two-time All-American at 150 pounds (3rd in '90 & 4th in '91) for the Raider wrestling program. He finished his Raider wrestling career with an impressive 73-12 overall mark.

To be eligible for induction into the M Club Hall of Fame, an individual must have received a degree at least 15 years prior to their selection. The person must have earned two letters in one sport or one letter in two sports. A coach must be retired for five years or more before induction.

Two individuals will also be inducted into the Honorary M Club - Dr. William Markley, who started the Raider men's soccer program in the early 1960s, and Deanne Knoblauch, who as head coach took the Raider women's basketball team to two Division III Final Four appearances - taking second in the nation in 1996 and third in the country in 1998. The Raiders won their first OAC women's basketball championship in 1998 under Knoblauch - posting a school-best 29-3 record.

Al Blank, class of '84, and Richard Edwards, class of '53, will also be honored with the M Club's Award of Excellence - in recognition of contributions made to the community at large after graduation.

On September 30, a luncheon in honor of the new inductees will be held at the Alliance Country Club beginning at noon. The luncheon is open to M Club members and their families.
