  •  Sport: Softball, Field Hockey
  •  Date Inducted: October 1990

For three consecutive years, Kelly Hall was awarded All-East Coast Conference honors in both field hockey and softball, and was a three-time Rider Female Athlete of the Year award winner. As a junior, Hall led the entire ECC in scoring in field hockey, and as a senior, led the entire ECC in batting on the softball team. As a sophomore, Hall had the second highest batting average in the country at .488. Hall graduated holding Rider field hockey records for career scoring (58 goals, 130 points) that stood until 2004 and still owns a share of the single season scoring record with 21 goals that was tied in 2004 by Christina Ang.  Hall held Rider softball records for hits in a career (137) and single season (47) that stood until 1989. Despite playing in pain with a broken bone in her back, which required her to wear a restricting back brace, Hall became the first Rider athlete to have her uniform number retired (#19) in both softball and field hockey.
