Three NCAA Division III national champions and the college’s winningest men’s basketball coach are set to become the newest members of the Central College Athletics Hall of Honor.  Long-time men’s basketball coach Jack Walvoord,  softball pitching all-American Emily Grimes Rottinghaus and wrestling champs Tim Hackel and Jon McGovern will be inducted as part of the college’s homecoming activities September 28-29.  

Central’s hall of honor is intended to recognize those who were exceptional performers in the athletics arena as a student-athlete, coach or administrator, and who have distinguished themselves in life after graduation through service and leadership. To be eligible for consideration, a nominee must have graduated or served as a Central coach/administrator at least 15 years earlier.
