Five Greats to be Inducted into Eagles Hall of Fame
The Edgewood College athletics department is pleased to announce that five former Eagles have been selected for induction into the Edgewood College Hall of Fame. Baseball player Matt Hill (1999-2002), women's soccer player Meghan Magner (1998-2001), women's basketball player Megan Scheele (2005-09), men's soccer player Nathan Selk (1993-96) and volleyball player Tara Zuhlsdorf (1991-94) will be inducted in a ceremony on April 22, 2016 in Madison.
Matt Hill '02 was arguably one of Edgewood College baseball's best big game pitchers of all-time. Hill, a native of Waunakee, was a first team Lake Michigan Conference selection in 2000 and 2002 and was named to the ABCA All-Midwest Region Third Team in 2001. He ranks second on the school's all-time wins list with 19 and owns 12 complete games. Hill totaled 116 strikeouts, the sixth most in school history, while pitching over 266 innings. His greatest game may have actually come in an Eagle loss. Hill battled for 10 innings in a 9-8, 11-inning setback to top-ranked University of St. Thomas at the 2001 NCAA Midwest Regionals. St. Thomas went on to win the NCAA Division III National Championship.
No player has won more games in goal for Edgewood College than Meghan Magner '03. Magner, a native of Greendale, was a three-time all-Lake Michigan Conference selection, winning 65 games and earning 37 career shutouts from 1998-2001. Magner was the defensive centerpiece of the Eagles' four straight LMC titles and three consecutive NCAA Division III Tournament appearances. Magner's 426 career saves are almost 200 more than the next closest goalkeeper in Edgewood College history. Magner was also a well-decorated student having been named a Merit Scholar winner and chosen as the Outstanding Senior Biology Student of the Year in 2005, and being the first female to receive the Eagle Award in 2001.
There's little argument that Megan Scheele '09 stands as the greatest women's basketball player in Edgewood College history. Scheele, a two-time All-American selection and four-time all-conference standout, is Edgewood College's all-time leading scorer with 2,120 points. She is one of only 16 players in the history of NCAA Division III women's basketball to score more than 2,000 points and grab over 1,000 rebounds, two milestones she achieved on the same night. She accumulated 53 double-doubles in her career which currently ranks her 21st in NCAA Division III history. Scheele, a native of New Glarus, was also a classroom star earning Academic All-American honors in both 2008 and 2009.
Despite graduating almost 20 years ago, Nathan Selk '97 remains one of the top goalkeepers in Edgewood College men's soccer history. Selk, a native of Green Bay and a product of Ashwaubenon High School, owns 45 career wins, 25 shutouts and an enormous 516 career saves, all of which are school records. He earned first team All-Lake Michigan Conference honors as a junior and a senior and was named to the NSCAA All-Region Second team in 1996. Selk's 1996 team claimed the program's first ever regular season conference title to go along with LMC Tournament titles in 1995 and 1996.
Tara Zuhlsdorf '95 stands as one of Edgewood College's top volleyball players from the early years of the program. Zuhlsdorf, a native of Tomah, was a three-time All-Lake Michigan Conference selection including the LMC's Player of the Year Award in 1994. She was named to the NAIA All-District 14 team three times, as her Eagles played in the NAIA postseason in all four of her years. Zuhlsdorf was the first Eagles player to reach 1,000 career kills and still ranks fourth all-time in school history. Her career attack percentage of .289 has only been surpassed once since she graduated.
The Edgewood College Hall of Fame inducts a new class every three years. Currently there are 29 individual members and one team in the hall. The Edgewood College Athletics Hall of Fame plaques are displayed on campus in the Todd Wehr Edgedome.
