Athletics Hall of Fame Inducts Moomy, Foster, and Tandy
Honor Wall Unveiled
Bruce Tandy, Don Moomey and Hub Foster were inducted to the York College Athletic Hall of Fame at a luncheon at the York Country Club on Friday, October 12.
The luncheon induction was followed by an unveiling ceremony for the new Hall of Fame wall in the Freeman Center gym on the York College campus.
More than 100 attendees gathered for the luncheon honoring the inductees, including guests from as far away as California.
Athletic Director Jared Stark emceed the event, which included special tributes to each of the honorees from friends and family members.
Don Moomey was the first to be inducted at the ceremony. His son, Chris Moomey, gave a loving tribute to his father, commenting on not only what a great athlete he was during his college years, but also, what a terrific man he is still today.
A York native, Moomey attended York College from 1956 to 1959 where he was a star of the basketball team. He went on to have a long career in public service with the Colorado State Patrol.
Hub Foster was unfortunately not able to be present for the ceremony due to his health. Dr. Dickie Hill, president of the York College Letterman’s Association, spoke about the impact that Foster made by covering York College athletics for many years. Foster was the voice and the pen of the Panthers, often traveling with the team. He was also a good friend to the coaches and players.
Foster’s daughter, Jane Thompson, was present to receive the award on her father’s behalf.
Two men shared the microphone to give tribute to Bruce Tandy—his son, James Tandy, and his longtime friend, Dr. Shane Mountjoy, vice president for student affairs at York College. Each spoke about Tandy’s dedication to others and his kind and generous spirit. During his 40 years at YC, Tandy wore many hats in the athletic department, including coach of the women’s basketball, volleyball, and softball teams, as well as men’s and women’s tennis, athletic director and intramurals director.
Also present at the ceremony was Colis Campbell, one of last year’s Hall of Fame inductees.
