YC Sports Hall of Fame to Induct three at Homecoming 2012
On October 12, York College will induct three men into the Sports Hall of Fame: Hub Foster, Don Moomey ’59, and Bruce Tandy ’67.
Each of these men represents a different element of sports history at York College. Foster is one of the longest living supporters of athletics at YC. For decades, he was the unofficial voice of the Panthers, as he travelled with teams and attended home games, delivering the play-by-play and wrap ups to local media.
York native Don Moomey was a star of the basketball team from 1956 to 1959, well known for his killer hook shot. Among the first students to enroll when the college reopened under the churches of Christ, Don held a number of records at YC including high scorer. In 1956, he was ranked fifth in the nation among junior colleges in game average scoring.
In 2007, Bruce Tandy retired from an athletics career at YC that spanned four decades. During that time he wore many hats, serving as coach of the women’s basketball, volleyball, and softball teams, as well as men’s and women’s tennis. He served as athletic director and intramurals director at different times. Through it all, his love for York College and for the students was obvious in his committed service.
The luncheon honoring Foster, Moomey, and Tandy will be held during York College Homecoming on Friday, October 12, at 11 a.m. at the York Country Club. Tickets will be $25 with proceeds going to the York College Letterman’s Association. To reserve a seat at this event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
