Pomona-Pitzer Athletics Hall of Fame
The Pomona-Pitzer Athletics Hall of Fame began in 1958 with three members inducted into the inaugural class: Robert Strehle (track and field), Earl Merritt (football, baseball, basketball and track) and John McColl (football, basketball, track and field).
A total of 287 people and one entire team have earned their way into the Pomona-Pitzer Hall of Fame in its 57 years of existence (through the 2015 induction class), with the 1992 Women's Tennis National Championship team earning an induction as a group in 2002. The Hall of Fame committee votes each year from nominations among from student-athletes who are 10 years or more removed from their final seasons of competition. In addition, important figures in Pomona-Pitzer Athletics history can earn inductions into the Hall of Fame as an hononary member or for distinguished service.
The six inductees include Will Leer (Cross Country/Track & Field), Alex Lloyd (Basketball), Laura Laakso Monnig (Volleyball), Anne Bages (Distinguished Service) Sean Tavtigian (Wrestling) and the 1987 1600m Relay Team of Tom Wardle, Mark Egland, Hubert Dubrulle and Graham Cook (Track and Field).
