Franklin & Marshall College will induct six individuals and one team into the Athletics Hall of Fame on Oct. 19 as part of Homecoming and Family Weekend festivities. Charlie Detz ’95, Tasha Faill ’90, Lou Figari ’73, Al Ingraham ’72, Jen Power ’97 and Andy Surtz ’97 will be inducted, along with the 1986–1987 men’s squash team.

Detz was a two-time All-America selection in basketball. He earned All-Centennial Conference (CC) First Team honors and NABC All-Region Honors in 1994 and 1995 and helped lead his teams to a 103–12 record during his four years in Lancaster. Detz finished with 1,163 points and 652 rebounds.

Faill was a two-sport standout, earning All-American honors as a goalkeeper in field hockey and lacrosse. She was named an All-American in field hockey twice and in lacrosse once. She still ranks at or near the top in multiple statistical categories in the F&M career and single-season record books of both sports.

Figari was a three-year starter at linebacker for the F&M football team, earning All-Mid-Atlantic Conference First Team honors in 1970 and 1972. He helped lead F&M to an undefeated 9–0 mark in 1972, anchoring a defensive unit that collected four shutouts and only gave up 7.3 points per game.

Ingraham played basketball and soccer during his four years in Lancaster. His main contributions to F&M athletics have been

leadership as president of the Diplomat Athletic Club, a position he currently holds, and his generous donation of time and money to help the student-athletes at F&M.

Power was a standout volleyball player. She was named Centennial Conference Player of the Year in 1996 and was a two-time All-Mid-Atlantic Region First Team selection. She also earned CoSIDA First Team Academic All-America honors. She finished her career ranked first in career points, kills, points per set and kills per set.

Surtz was an All-Centennial Conference selection at running back for the football team. He completed his career as the all-time leading

rusher in school history with 2,913 yards. He also posted the only 1,000-yard season in F&M history, rushing for 1,044 yards as a senior. His 18 career rushing touchdowns rank third all-time.

The 1986–87 men’s squash team put together the best season in school history with a dual match record of 15–1. Nine of the Diplomats’ 15 wins were 9–0 shutouts, and each of the nine starters posted a winning individual record. Led by the All-American trio of Morris Clothier ‘87, Chris Spahr ‘87and Aashish Kamat ‘88, the Diplomats set a new standard of excellence for F&M squash.

The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be webcast via Stretch Internet, F&M’s broadband streaming partner.
