Winning Legacies: Alumni Athletes Honored at Recent Banquet

On Saturday, January 23, four Gordon alumni athletes were inducted into the Athletic Hall of Honor at a banquet at the Peabody Marriot. The Highlander Club—which sponsors the awards—honored Sarah DeLuca ’05, Christine Scruton Reichenburg ’94, Dana Taylor ’85B, and Ryan Whitehouse ’01. After each was presented with a special plaque, the four inductees were given a chance to speak about how their athletic platform had provided them the opportunity to use their gifts and to share the gospel.

Nearly 100 people attended the banquet, according to Athletic Director Jon Tymann, who felt the evening was also a way to celebrate the many achievements of Gordon College athletics.

“These four student-athletes are tremendous in their own ways,” Tymann said. “This banquet is a great way we can honor them for what they gave during their athletic careers at Gordon and for what they are continuing to give to their communities.” For more information on the Hall of Honor and this year’s inductees, click here.
