Morrison, five athletes going into Union Hall of Fame

Five athletes, a coach and two teams will be inducted into the Union College Athletics Hall of Fame

Five athletes, a coach and two teams will be inducted into the Union College Athletics Hall of Fame this fall.

The honorees will be inducted Nov. 14. The event will be held at College Park Hall on campus and features a 4 p.m. reception with a dinner at 5 p.m. followed by the inductions.

To be honored are:

Terry Campbell, Class of 1991, men’s ice hockey: He led the Dutchmen in scoring in all of his four seasons and left the program as the all-time leading scorer with 170 career points, a mark that still stands.

Joe Clinton, 1983, men’s basketball and baseball: Set the all-time assist record as a junior and finished his career with 556. Clinton owns the single season and game records for most assists with 182 and 15, respectively. He graduated as the third-highest scorer all-time with 1,270 points, a mark that now ranks 11th. A two-year team captain, he also played baseball in 1982-83.

Brian Field, 1998, men’s swimming and diving: Field became Union’s first-ever national champion, winning the 1-meter in 1996 and was the national runner-up in the 3-meter. A year later as a junior, he was the national runner-up in the 1-meter and finished fourth in the 3-meter. In total, Field took home eight All-America honors in the 1- and 3- meter diving events.

Molly Flanagan (Larkin), 2005, women’s soccer, lacrosse and ice hockey: Considered one of the greatest female athletes to ever play at Union, she collected four All-America honors in lacrosse and two regional All-America nods in soccer. The soccer team went 65-11-6 during her four seasons, making two NCAA appearances during that span. Flanagan graduated as the career point leader in lacrosse and now sits second with 294 career points. She also spent one season on the ice with the Dutchwomen as a sophomore, posting 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points.

Charlie Morrison, men’s ice hockey head coach: Morrison took over men’s hockey program in 1978 and turned the team into a contender, in the process helping in the transition from Division III to Division I. Morrison led the Dutchmen to three straight NCAA tournaments, including the DIII championship game in 1983-84.

Katie Smith (Serrano), Class of 2002, women’s soccer and basketball: A four-year starter in both soccer and basketball, she finished her soccer career second on the all-time scoring list with 39 goals, 19 assists for 97 points. On the basketball court, Smith ranks second all-time with 1,411 career points and is one of just seven players to record 1,000 points and 500 rebounds.

1965 men’s baseball team: Dutchmen went 15-2 overall and captured the NCAA Atlantic Coast Championship, defeating Old Dominion 3-1 in the championship game.

1983-84 men’s ice hockey team: Morrison led this squad to a 19-11-1 and a berth in the NCAA Division III championship game against Babson College.
