Homecoming was October 14-16, and there was a ton of athletic events going on besides the other ways around campus to reconnect with old friends and classmates! Saturday morning started with the Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony. There were also alumni games of baseball and softball, plus three varsity games throughout the day.
Hall of Honor Induction Breakfast
Mike Gale - Baseball (1998-2001)
Mike was a good-fielding first baseman who was also great at the plate. He graduated 7th in the ODAC record books with 102 career RBIs and had four-year marks of a .360 batting average, 165 hits and 106 runs. As a senior in 2001, he was named All-ODAC First Team.
Sara Nissley - Field Hockey (1997-2000)
Sara capped her career with a stellar senior season, when she led the nation in scoring with 29 goals. Sara was named ODAC Player of the Year and All-ODAC, All-Region and All-America First Team. She left 2nd in EMU career goals (74), 4th in points (175) and tied for 7th in assists (27).
Danielle Conser Siembida - Women's Volleyball
Danielle spent most of her time as the setter, leaving with four career records (including assists and digs), one season record and a single match mark. She led the ODAC in assists twice and was named All-ODAC First Team as a senior when she split her time between setter and hitter.
