Abstract

Four legendary athletes came back to campus for the 2004 Kennesaw State University Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held on Saturday‚ January 24 at the KSU Student Center.

The Class of 2004 included softball pitcher Dyan Mueller−Wingo‚ golfer Jon Hough and baseball players John Kelly and Ryan Coe.

The morning ceremony‚ hosted by Athletic Director Dr. Dave Waples‚ was the athletic department's second induction ceremony and the first that featured all athletes.

The distinguished class featured two national champions‚ four All−Americans and four players who led their teams to national recognition.

Hough won the Owls first championship in 1986 when he captured the NAIA Individual title. Coe was a member of the 1994 NAIA championship team.

Mueller−Wingo‚ a 1991 Honorable Mention All−American‚ led the Owls to a national tournament appearance in the program's first year of fastpitch competition.

Kelly was a 1990 All−American whose remarkable four−year career still finds him as the Owls career leader in wins and strikeouts.

Former baseball coach Chip Reese was back on campus to present Kelly while Billy Hill Jr. introduced Hough.

Head Coach Scott Whitlock introduced Mueller−Wingo while Mike Sansing presented his former player and current assistant coach in Coe.

The class is the second−ever inducted into the Hall of Fame. The nine−member class now includes five athletes and four administrators.
