Hall of Fame This Saturday

The sports of basketball, field hockey, soccer, tennis and wrestling will be represented at the 2013 Rider Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony June 8.

First-year ballot selections Jerry Johnson ’05 of the basketball team and Christina Ang ’05 of the field hockey team will be joined by wrestler Derek Jenkins ’03, basketball player Chuck Simon ’77 and soccer/tennis star from the 1990s Matt Miles ’06 as 2013 inductees.

"Every year the Hall of Fame Committee works very hard in selecting the best nominees for this prestigious athletic honor," said Don Harnum, Rider Director of Athletics. "Once again they did an outstanding job as all of our honorees are very well accomplished in their respective sports."

Johnson, of Lancaster, PA, graduated second in career scoring at Rider as just the ninth New Jersey Division I player to compile 2,000 career points.  A three-time First Team All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference selection, Johnson averaged 17.6 points per game for his career while graduating fifth in career assists. Johnson holds the Rider single-season record with 102 three-point field goals.

Ang, of Ocean City, NJ, graduated with Rider records for goals in a season (21, sixth in the nation that year), goals in a career (66) and points in a career (144). A two-time Northeast Conference Player of the Year, Ang was also the NEC Tournament MVP as a sophomore and was on the NEC All-Tournament team again as a senior. The first Bronc to be invited to play in the National Field Hockey All-Star Game, Ang was twice a Second Team All-Region selection and was a First Team All-Region pick as a senior.

Ang and Johnson shared the 2005 Rider Athlete of the Year award.

Jenkins, of Orefield, PA, was the Rider Athlete of the Year in 2003 after earning the Most Outstanding Wrestler Award at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships.  One of only three Rider wrestlers to qualify for Nationals all four years, Jenkins was the sixth Bronc to compile 100 (110) career wins.

Simon, of Toms River, NJ, was the Rider career rebound record holder for 30 years (874) until it was broken by current NBA player Jason Thompson ’08.  Simon also graduated seventh in career scoring (1,096) at Rider.  A four-year starter, Simon averaged 10.9 points and 8.7 rebounds per game for his career.

Miles, of Williamstown, NJ, led the Rider soccer team in scoring all four years, including a Rider-record 18 goals and 42 points as a senior when he was named the NEC and the New Jersey Soccer Player of the Year.  An outstanding athlete, Miles also played first singles for the Rider tennis team in the spring.

Also at the Hall of Fame ceremony the Clair Bee Outstanding Team Achievement Award will be presented to the 1997 and 1998 men’s soccer teams, who won back-to-back MAAC Championships and NCAA Play-In games to advance to the NCAA Championship Tournaments. The 1998 team was ranked 15th in the nation.
