Congratulations to Enrique (Ricky) Sanchez '98 and Andy Welling '03, two BizComm alums who will be inducted in the second class of the Stevenson University Athletics Hall of Fame, along with five other alumni.
According to Gomustangsports, Ricky was a two-sport athlete, playing men’s soccer and men’s lacrosse. The men’s lacrosse team annually awards the Ricky Sanchez Best Midfielder Award. In soccer, he was a two-year team captain and most valuable player. After he graduated, he stayed on to serve as an admissions counselor, an assistant coach, and the sports information director. In the photo (at center) he is shown at a recent golf outing with soccer coaches Graeme Millar and John Plevyak.
Andy played four seasons for the baseball team, the first baseball student-athlete to play four years after playing in 29 games during the team’s inaugural season in 2000. He was a two-time American Baseball Coaches Association All-Region selection and two-time team most valuable player as a junior and senior. He is still ranked among the top-10 in school history in 14 categories, including the record for RBIs with 124.
Congratulations to all of the inductees!
