BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College inducted its 35th class into the Sports Hall of Fame Friday evening at its annual Hall of Fame banquet in the Norton Great Hall on the BSC campus.
The six members of the BSC Sports Hall of Fame class of 2015 are: Aly Goldfarb (Track and Field '10), Jordan Hardy (Women's Golf '09), Sarah Harris (Volleyball '10), General Charles C. Krulak (Contributor), Adam Tucker (Baseball '05), Dr. Harold Wehby (Men's Basketball '71).
Goldfarb was the 2010 BSC Female Athlete of the Year and MVP of the indoor and outdoor track and field teams. Her pole vault record of 3.8 meters still stands today and, after graduating, she went on to run in the Maccabiah Games in Israel, where she won four medals (gold, silver, and two bronze). Goldfarb was also invited to compete in the prestigious Millrose Games in New York.
Hardy played golf for BSC in the NCAA Division I era, earning All-Big South Conference honors in 2006 and 2007 while helping the Panthers win the conference titles both seasons. She was the BSC Co-Female Athlete of the Year in 2008 and went on to earn her LPGA card in 2013.
Harris is BSC's all-time volleyball kills leader (1,754). She was named to the Big South All-Freshman Team in 2006, and helped BSC go 32-3 a year later in 2007. In the midst of BSC's transition from Division I to Division III, Harris gave up her athletic scholarship to play for the Panthers her senior season.
Krulak was BSC's 13th president and spearheaded a complete resurrection of the college, going four years without taking a salary while increasing enrollment and fundraising efforts. He also led the school's reaccreditation in 2015. Krulak was an avid supporter of Panther athletics, and it was a rare game where he could not be seen prowling the sidelines or sitting in the stands cheering on his students. He even became the first BSC president to earn a yellow card.
Tucker was a NCBWA All-American in 2005 after making a miraculous comeback from two surgeries. He helped the Panthers win the 2004 Big South title and played in the NCAA Regional in Athens, Ga., that year. Tucker was the 2005 NCAA home-runs-per-game champion, setting the BSC single-season home runs record with 25 that year. He was also named ABCA All-South Region and All-Big South Conference, as well as BSC Co-Male Athlete of the Year in 2005.
Wehby was a co-captain for the basketball team, playing from 1969 to 1971. He was a Prep All-American at John Carroll Catholic High School before coming to the Hilltop, and a Dean's List member. Wehby went on to become a prominent dentist in the Birmingham area, and is a lifetime member of the Alabama Dental Association.
The six inductees will also be recognized at halftime of tomorrow's Homecoming football game against Millsaps, which kicks off at 2 p.m. on Battle Field at Panther Stadium.
