Queens College inducted eight members of the Class of 2017 into its Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday, Oct. 13, at Harbor Links Golf Club in Port Washington, N.Y. QC's sixth class includes eight members, with five outstanding individuals and three teams of distinction, including former Queens College athletes, coaches, and championship teams.
The Class of 2017 features Alan Landes, Frank Saracino, Cheryl Vigo, Howard M. Elson and Nicole Young, along with the Knights' 1967 baseball team, 1980 softball team and 2007 women's tennis team.
Our first Team of Distinction Hall of Fame Spotlight is the 2007 Women's Tennis Team.
The Queens College women's tennis team took home the East Coast Conference Championship during the 2007 season. It was the team's sixth straight conference title, dominating the N.Y.C.A.C. before it became the ECC.
Led by head coach Alan Nagel, the Lady Knights stormed through the ECC with a 7-0 conference mark, earning a spot in the NCAA Division II East Regionals. Nagel earned ECC Coach of the Year, while Alyssa Morra, Laura Mocodeanu, Jessie Franklin, Kirby Reiss and Jennifer Merideth garnered all-conference honors.
