Georgetown Announces 20th Hall of Fame Induction Class

Nov. 18, 2011

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Department of Athletics, in conjunction with Hoyas Unlimited, will host the 20th edition of the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 11.

Seven former Hoyas will be honored at the event, including All-America basketball player Dikembe Mutombo (I'91, H'10), track & field national champion John Trautmann (B'90), field hockey star Kristi Middleton (B'92, L'95), tennis standout Steve Fishbach (C'92), leading football receiver Clayton Wagner (C'79, G '79), and two championship players from the 1993 Sweet 16 women's basketball team, Kris Witfill (C'93) and Leni Wilson (C'93). Cocktails will begin at 6:30 p.m., and the dinner and ceremony will commence at 7:30 p.m., in the Leavey Center on the Georgetown campus.

Mutombo is the single-season leader in rebounds in Georgetown history as well as the all-time leader in career shooting percentage. An All-America selection in his final season, Mutombo helped the Hoyas to three NCAA appearances and two BIG EAST Final appearances from 1989 through 1991. Twice selected First Team All-BIG EAST, he was named the BIG EAST Conference's Defensive Player of the Year as a senior.

John Trautmann is one of 16 individual national champions in Georgetown's track & field history. A five-time All-America honoree, John captured the NCAA 5,000 meter outdoor title and led-off Georgetown's world record-setting distance medley relay at the Penn Relays. He led the men's indoor team to a second-place finish in the NCAA track championships in 1991, as well as an IC4A team championship and three BIG EAST team titles during his intercollegiate career.

Kristi Middleton twice earned Outstanding Player honors on the Hilltop, the first field hockey player ever so recognized. Named to the regional All-America team in 1990 and 1991, Kristi set a Georgetown record for goals in a season with 11 and the career mark for assists with 14. She helped lead her team to the championship of the Maryland Washington Colleges tournament and was twice named to the all-tournament team.

Tennis player Steve Fishbach played at the No. 1 singles position for most of his career on the Hilltop, leading the team to a four-year dual match record of 65-29 and its first BIG EAST conference championship title. As a senior, Steve reached the top flight finals in the BIG EAST championships and became the first Hoya player to win a match in the Intercollegiate Clay Court Championships. He finished his career in 1992 with an all-time Georgetown record of 123-59.

The pre-eminent Georgetown football receiver of the 1970s, Clayton Wagner graduated as the school's all-time leader in receptions, yardage, and touchdowns following a four-year career (1975-78). Clayton gained 1,646 receiving yards and scored 12 touchdowns on 102 receptions. In his senior season, he helped his team to a 7-1 finish, the best showing by a Georgetown team since 1939.

One of the brightest lights in Georgetown women's basketball history, Kris Witfill is the Hoyas' all-time scoring leader with 1,885 points. A three-time all-BIG EAST selection and the BIG EAST player of the year in her final season, Witfill co-led her team in 1993 to the regular season conference title and to the NCAA Sweet 16. She remains among the all-time conference leaders in points, scoring average, free throws, and steals.

Complementing the outside play of Witfill with a forceful inside presence, Leni Wilson is one of the all-time leading rebounders at Georgetown, with the program's history dating back to 1970-71 with its first year of varsity play. A two-time all-BIG EAST selection, Wilson co-led her team in 1993 to the regular season conference title and to the NCAA Sweet 16. She remains among the all-time conference leaders in rebounding.

The Athletic Hall of Fame Citation is a University-wide award presented to a graduate of Georgetown or to a coach or administrator who qualifies for recognition on the basis of superior athletic achievement or contribution to athletics at Georgetown. The Georgetown Hall of Fame was established in 1953 and is located in the southwest gallery of the Leavey Student Center on GU's campus. More than 230 student-athletes and leaders from the annals of Georgetown have been enshrined. For more information on the Hall of Fame Induction, please contact Hoyas Unlimited at 202-687-7159 or mkb42@georgetown.edu.
