Borland, a four-year starter, team MVP and team captain as a senior, helped the Tigers to a four-year record of 30-7, including a 14-5 mark in the OAC and a 1966 championship.

Clouse was a multi-sport standout as an undergraduate at Wittenberg before returning to teach and coach. Clouse never had a losing dual meet record in 23 seasons as Wittenberg’s women’s swimming coach, founded the women’s lacrosse program and was the first coach in the modern era of women’s golf.

Donathan is the most decorated wrestler in program history after posting a career record of 106-28-4. He is the first and only Wittenberg wrestler to win 100 career matches and earn All-America Honors.

Helm is one of three track and field student-athletes in Wittenberg history to score more than 100 individual points in two consecutive conference championship meets, in addition to being a two-time team captain and team MVP.

Lynam helped the Tiger men’s basketball team to two consecutive regular season conference championships, two conference tournament championships and four NCAA Division III Tournament wins while earning multiple postseason awards.

Parsons was a three-sport standout who returned to her alma mater as an assistant coach for eight years. She experienced only one losing season in 12 seasons (four each in basketball, volleyball and softball) as an undergraduate, and she remains on several school record lists.
