Westmont Magazine Legends of the Hall of Fame
What achievements qualify athletes for membership in the Westmont College Warrior Hall of Fame? While they must excel in their sport, they must also succeed in the classroom and present an exemplary character and attitude. The second annual Hall of Fame banquet will honor six new inductees in April.
Russ Carr coached the 1972 NAIA National Championship men’s soccer team, compiled a 211-108-26 record, was an NAIA Coach of the Year, and is in the NAIA Hall of Fame.
Legendary pitcher Bill Cole ’50 played on the Warriors’ first baseball team and helped build Westmont’s athletic program.
John Crew ’54 still holds the Warrior basketball record for the most points scored in a career, ranks second in the most points per game, and claims both fourth and fifth places for points scored in a season.
Louie Cuevas ’88, Westmont’s only four-time All-American, played in the 1984 National Tournament with the men’s soccer team and holds the school record for the most assists in a season.
In 1971, Jean Louis Ravelomanantsoa ’73 tied the world record in the 60-yard dash and the European record for the 100-meter race, and “Track and Field News” named him the number two sprinter in the world. He competed in the Munich Olympics.
Cheryl Rogers ’84, a member of the 1982 National Championship women’s tennis team, earned NAIA All-American honors and was Westmont’s first All-American Scholar-Athlete. An individual quarter finalist at the national tournament, she was ranked number one in 1980-81.
