Athletic Hall of Fame

Established in 1971 by the National Alumni Association, the Mount St. Mary's Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes annually former athletes who "have exhibited athletic prowess of an outstanding nature in an intercollegiate sport." The late Monsignor John L. Sheridan, former president and star athlete on basketball and football teams, has the distinction of being the first person elected to membership in the Hall of Fame.  Since that auspicious beginning, the Hall of Fame has inducted other former basketball and football standouts, as well as representatives from the baseball, cross country, boxing, soccer, track, tennis, lacrosse, decathlon, field hockey, softball and golf teams. The inductees also include one other former president, the late Dr. John J. Dillon, Jr., and several coaches and individuals who have made significant contributions to the athletic program. Three teams have been enshrined, notably the 1962 NCAA College Division Basketball Champions.

To make a nomination for the Mount Athletic Hall of Fame, please complete the nomination form and submit it to the Office of Alumni Engagement.

2021/2022 Inductees

Devin Barry, C'06, Track & Field

A champion in the hurdles and multiple additional events, Devin Barry remains one of the top performers for Mount track in the 21st Century. Barry finished his career as a three-time winner of the 60 meter hurdles at the Northeast Conference Championships for indoor track and two-time winner for the 110 meter hurdles during outdoor season.

Great efforts went beyond the hurdling lanes, as Barry was also a two-time winner of the heptathlon at the IC4A Indoor Championships, taking the event as a sophomore and senior, along with the decathlon at the 2006 Penn Relays.

He remains second all-time for both the 60 meter hurdles and heptathlon, and fifth all-time for the 110 meter hurdles. His time for the 60 meter hurdles at the 2006 Indoor Championships set a NEC record.

Jeremy Goode, C'10, Men's Basketball

Heralded as one of the best in an established line of prolific point guards for men’s basketball, Goode made an impact on the program beginning his freshman year in 2006. Quickly becoming a fixture in the Mount’s starting lineup, he played in 128 games with 125 starts, amassing a total of 1,716 points, good for 10th on the school’s all-time list.

But true to form for a point guard, he knew how to find his teammates and inspire the defense. Those efforts gave him the school’s top mark for assists at 603, almost 100 more than the man in second place. His steals total 260, ranking second all-time and are the most for any Mount player in the past 30 years. During his sophomore season, he recorded 182 assists, third-most for a season in program history. Goode also succeeded in getting to the line, making 740 trips and tallying 100 or more points from the charity stripe in three out of four years.

With Goode on the squad, the Mountaineers won the NEC Championship in 2008 and made the NEC title game again the following year. He was a First Team All-Northeast Conference selection as a junior and senior, and an All-Rookie selection in 2007.

David Hinton, C'04, Track & Field

Hinton competed in multiple events as a track and field athlete, with his specialty being the pole vault. As the school’s record holder in the event, Hinton advanced to the NCAA Finals with a mark of 5.30 meters. He also held the record for indoor track for 16 years before it was broken in March 2020.

Hinton’s efforts translated to the heptathlon, where he holds another school record, scoring 5,504 points at a meet in State College, Pennsylvania in January 2004. Hinton became a NCAA finalist for this event, holding down seventh place nationwide for a time before finishing in 12th place.

At the 2004 Penn Relays, Hinton secured a victory for the Decathlon, and was crowned champion of the pole vault during the 2004 NEC Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

George Knipfing, C'63, Track & Field

Recruited by legendary coach Jim Deegan, Knipfing helped continue the standard and establish new ones for all the successful track & field teams in the second half of the 20th Century. Working his way up the chart, he eventually achieved the status of Co-Captain his junior and senior seasons.

Winning numerous medals and trophies at major NCAA track & field events nationwide, he set school records in the 440 and the mile.

Post-graduation, he commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Marines after joining as a student, serving in Vietnam on behalf of the United States. He went on to become the recipient of the Student Council Recognition Award and the Spes Nostra Award by President Thomas Powell in the 2000s.

Anna Lebo-dunn, C'08, Women's Succer

Manning the net for women’s soccer, Anna Lebo played in 59 games across four seasons. When her career ended, she finished with 350 saves and a goals against average of 1.8. Lebo stands second all-time in multiple categories, including career wins with 15, shutouts with 10, minutes played and saves. Her save percentage of 77.1 percent ranks as the fourth best in program history.

As the primary starter her junior and senior years, Lebo etched her name into the record books for saves, recording the second and third most denials for a season. 124 saves in her junior campaign serve as a career high.

The Northeast Conference acknowledged Lebo as part of their First Team All-Conference in 2006 and 2007.

Dr. Harold "Chappy" Menninger, Athletic Director

For 12 years, Mount St. Mary’s benefited from the leadership of Dr. Harold Menninger, known as Chappy to all those in the world of intercollegiate athletics. During his tenure in Emmitsburg, he helped advance the department with the additions of three new varsity teams – women’s golf, women’s lacrosse and women’s swimming – along with the construction of Waldron Family Stadium for soccer and lacrosse, and the renovation of E.T. Straw Family Stadium for baseball.

In addition, six teams secured bids to the NCAA postseason championships, along with numerous ECAC Championship events and the 1996 men’s basketball trip to the NIT. Menninger also oversaw the planting of financial stability, setting up individual sport endowments and guiding Mount Club donations to increase five-fold. As a result of these combined efforts, the Mount won three Northeast Conference Commissioner Cups.

Menninger’s tenure also shaped the Mount’s athletic department as a brand, creating several new advisory boards including the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, reorganizing the department with new strategic visions and overseeing the development of the athletics website.

Two of Menninger’s former employees went to on to become athletic directors, including his successor and current AD Lynne Robinson. In addition to his duties as director, he sat on the NCAA Division I Strategic Planning Council and chaired the NCAA men’s lacrosse championships for Divisions I, II, and III for 2003 and 2004.

Alison leads with a true passion for quality and doing business the right way from the start. Whether it be overseeing a multi-million dollar client engagement, an operational challenge or managing and mentoring internal talent, her focus is always placed on inspiring others to think outside of the box so they can move the needle forward together. As a result, xScion has been named a Best Place to Work in Virginia for five straight years - 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 - and supported some of the largest brands in the healthcare, financial service and non-profit sectors.

Prior to starting xScion, Alison served in various talent leadership roles for IT consulting companies and software solutions firms in the Washington, DC area. While Alison always had an entrepreneurial nature, it was her experience working for a forward-thinking DOT.com solutions technology firm in the late '90s that inspired her to pursue something on her own. The things she learned daily from their leadership, her colleagues and truly vibrant company culture are what she aims to practice and exemplify at xScion. Even back in 1999, their formula for success appeared easy - only pursue business opportunities that are the most complex, challenging and use leading-edge technologies; hire the best problem solvers who 100% believe in your company vision; treat everyone as you want to be treated; recruit and empower brilliant leaders who know way more than you do; and always deliver exceptional value to your clients by aiming for a 100% on-time, on-budget and honest track record. The amazing professional and personal friendships formed during this four-year span remain unchanged, and it is her hope that the xScion team will look back one day and feel the same way about their time spent here.

Alison holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount St. Mary's University where she studied Business and Finance, and Sociology. She currently serves as an Advisory Board Member to the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business for the mount. Alison plays an active role in the Advisory Council with STEM for Her and is an avid supporter of their many programs that foster enthusiasm and empower girls and young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Alison is a member of the Women Presidents Educational Organization's DC Chapter.

2022 - Rev. Ricardo F. Hernandez, C'00

Seminary – Msgr. Andrew R. Baker, S.T.D., Vice President and Seminary Rector

Father Ricardo Hernandez was born in 1965 and raised in Veracruz, Mexico.

He entered the College seminary in Mexico City and completed his philosophical studies receiving a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the Pontifical University of Mexico.

After arriving in the United States in 1995, he studied English as a Second Language at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. He received his final years of priestly formation at Mount St. Mary's Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity.

Father Ricardo was ordained to the Priesthood by Bishop Doran on May 20, 2000, at the Cathedral of Saint Peter, Rockford, Illinois.

His assignments have included Parochial Vicar for Saint James Parish, Belvidere and then appointment Parochial Administrator of St. James; Vice Chancellor of the Diocese of Rockford; Parochial Vicar for St. Mary's Parish, Sterling; Parochial Vicar for St. Margaret Mary Parish, Algonquin; Parochial Vicar for St. Peter Parish, South Beloit; Parochial Administrator at SS Peter and Paul Parish, Rockford; Parochial Administrator for St. Patrick Parish, Rockford then later appointed Pastor of St. Patrick; Pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Aurora, IL.

On July 19, 2013, Father Ricardo became an American Citizen.

Currently, Father Ricardo is the Parochial Vicar at Saint Bernadette Church in Rockford, Illinois.

With the onset of COVID-19, Father Ricardo has served his diocese with incredible zeal and courage that has earned him the title of "COVID Priest" for the city of Rockford. At the beginning of the pandemic, Father Ricardo volunteered to minister to COVID-19 patients and strugged to gain the permission from the hospitals to visit those patients who asked for a priest. As the "COVID priest," he anointed many patients who were ill and dying in isolation in various hospitals of the city. He was able to assure that priests who were susceptible to serious side-effects of the virus did not have to take such a risk and yet their Catholic parishioners could receive the sacraments and comfort from a priest. He has shown fortitude and selfless love in service to God and neighbor. Especially at the beginning of the pandemic, Father Hernandez was often the only line of contact these patients had with their heartbroken family members who could not be in the room due to fear of contagion. For this reason, Father Hernandez has earned the respect and admiration of this brother priests and is a shining example to our seminarians and to the Mount community as a whole.

2022 - Christine M. Gelles, C'92

College of Liberal Arts – Peter A. Dorsey, Ph.D., Dean

Like her father, George Gelles (C'64), Christine won the Flanagan Award, the Mount's top student honor, when she graduated. She then served the U.S. Department of Energy for over twenty-five years, first in the DOE's budget office and then in its Office of Environmental Management (OEM), whose focus in protecting, removing, and safely containing nuclear waste. Over the course of seventeen years, Christine assumed a variety of leadership roles in the OEM, fashioning contractual, technological, logistical, and managerial solutions to problems caused by sever environmental damage, even in instances when legal and regulatory systems had not kept pace with emerging needs. Her risk-informed strategies achieved environmental remediation, accelerated facility decommissioning, and optimized radioactive waste management. A visible spokesperson for the DOE, she hosted conferences and public meetings, partnered with state and local governments, and listened to concerned citizens. She has testified before Congress and briefed its members, staff and other senior government officials.

Christine's career with the Department of Energy was distinguished by steady advancement, collaborative leadership, and creative solutions, but two particularly exciting assignments booked her federal career. The first occurred in 1999-2002, when she joined a team tasked with cleaning up the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology site, which once developed nuclear weapons and is close to the Denver, Colorado, metropolitan area. The second came in 2015, when she was called to stand up a field office at New Mexico's Los Alamos National Lab because a container had breached, shuttering a critical disposal site, impacting federal programs across the country, and raising legal issues with the state of New Mexico. In both cases, Christine and her team reviewed and revised policies, procedures and programs and then implemented major remediation projects that made the environment more safe.

In 2016, Christine joined Longenecker & Associates, a firm that undertakes projects similar to those she led within the Department of Energy and often subcontracts work with that agency as well as the National Nuclear Security Administration. In her current role as Senior Vice President for Operations, she has more than doubled the size of the company's portfolio and often travels to Europe, where she shares the better-resourced technologies and solutions she helped to develop with countries less experienced in those areas.

Christine has received numerous awards from the Department of Energy and serves on a variety of boards and commissions. She participates in domestic and international interagency efforts, has chaired the International Atomic Energy Agency's PRISM and CIDEr projects and serves as Senior Advisor to the Environmental Remediation Network (ENVIRONET). At the Mount, she has staffed numerous career panels and has served on the College of Liberal Arts Advisory Board since 2014. Her daughter, Kayleigh (C'09), is also a proud Mount graduate.
