Fairfield Athletic Hall of Fame Golf Outing a Success
Over 115 golfers and an additional 50 hall of fame dinner guests – all friends, parents, and alumni of Fairfield - made last week’s inaugural Hall of Fame Golf Outing a success. Held on Monday, May 11, at The Patterson Club of Fairfield, the day-long golfing event that included lunch, dinner and the 2015 Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony was hosted by lead sponsor USI. All proceeds from the event will support Fairfield Athletics Sports Performance, which will impact all of our varsity student-athletes as well as Fairfield University Rugby Club Sports Performance.
“The Hall of Fame ceremony was a very special moment for the family, friends and alumni who came together to honor their accomplishments,” said Gene Doris, director of Athletics.
The 2015 Hall of Fame Inductees were Kate Abromovitch ’93 (Women’s Basketball), Dani Brown ’03 (Field Hockey), Doug Ciacci ‘65 (Men’s Rugby), Page Driscoll Syron ’98 (Women’s Basketball), and Kelly Steele Aldrich ’05 (Women’s Swimming).
Doris also offered that there was a great camaraderie at the event and that support from friends of athletics will continue to elevate the student-athlete experience for years to come. “On behalf of Fairfield Athletics I would like to thank each and every golfer, dinner guest and sponsor who participated in the inaugural Fairfield Athletic Hall of Fame Golf Outing for their support and I look forward to the growth of this event next year.”
