Siena College Welcomes Three Memebers To Their Hall of Fame
If you are a Siena graduate you may want to mark December 7 on your calendar. On that day Siena will welcome three new additions to the school’s hall of fame.
Former head basketball coach Mike Dean, Golfer Brian Bigley, and swimmer Kelly Morrisey will all be enshrined. Dean is the sixth head coach to go into the hall. Already in are basketball coach Dan Cunha, Leo Callahan, who coached several sports,Tony Rossi from baseball, Russ Ferris from lacrosse, and volleyball coach Hank Wysocki.
Dean guided Siena to their first NCAA Tournament appearance and their first NIT appearance. In 1989, Dean’s Saints upset four seed Stanford and almost pulled off an upset of Minnesota in round two. Dean was also named top coach in the state of New York in 1988 and 1991.
Bigley’s brother Robbie was inducted in the hall last year, so it is a family affair for the Bigley’s. Brian helped lead Siena to two MAAC championships in Golf.
Morrisey is the first ever swimmer to be inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame. She still holds several school marks.
There are package deals that include tickets to the induction reception as well as two tickets to the Saints men’s basketball game that night when Siena takes on Rider University. Online registration for the event starts on October 26th. You can go online at www.siena.edu/halloffame
