Hall of Fame / 2005 Honorees

Six Inducted into Hall

Five alumni and one retired coach were honored in the 48th annual Pomona-Pitzer Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony in October. Inducted were Phil Kelly ’95, Petrea Moyle Marchand ’94, Amy Phillips ’84, Tisa Read (Pitzer ’94), James Rosenthal ’93 and Coach Gary Troyer, who was honored for distinguished service.

Kelly led the Pomona-Pitzer basketball team to two first-round NCAA berths, twice earning all-SCIAC honors. He stands fourth on both the all-time career assists list with 316 and the season assists list with 127, and is tied for third on the single-game assists list with 12.

While leading her volleyball team to one SCIAC title and two NCAA berths, Marchand earned all-SCIAC honors four times and all-region three times. She holds school records in single match digs (42), season digs (427), career service aces (174), and career digs (1547). She also stands second in career kills (1376).

Phillips earned multiple all-SCIAC and all-region honors in both cross country and track and field, qualifying for national championships in both sports. She holds the second-fastest cross-country 5000-meter time (17:47) in Sagehen history, and in track, she set school records in all distance events. Her 10,000-meters record (37:08.1) still stands.

Read earned nine varsity letters in four sports (basketball, track and field, volleyball and soccer), excelling in each. Twice first-team all-SCIAC in basketball, she helped lead the squad to three conference titles and was named SCIAC Player of the Year. She also set a school record for season free throw percentage (78.7 percent).

Rosenthal received multiple all-SCIAC honors in swimming, and was twice SCIAC champion in the 200 fly. He qualified for national championships four years and was a six-time all-American in the 100 and 200 fly. He also set a SCIAC championship record in the 200 fly and multiple school records in the 100 and 200 fly.

Coach Gary Troyer came to Pomona in 1970 as water polo and swimming coach. In the years that followed, won SCIAC titles in men’s water polo (1981) and women’s swimming (1977 and 1978). He also mentored countless all-conference swimmers and polo players, as well as numerous school-record holders and all-Americans. He retired in 2004.
