Allentown, Pa. (January 29, 2013)–Cedar Crest College athletics will honor those on its all-time list of 1,000-point scorers during halftime of its basketball game in Lees Gym this Saturday, Feb. 2, at 1 p.m. against Rosemont College.

This distinguished group of Falcons–nine in all dating back more than 35 years–features three players from the past two graduation classes (Kelly Oakes ’11,  Leann Wallower ’11, and Elizabeth Sunderhaus ’12), as well as a mother/daughter team of top scorers (Melissa (Porzio) Miller ’90 and Courtney (Porzio) Schleicher ’06). Rounding out the group are Lisa (Tinucci) Barnett ’87, Jayne (Gano) Marasco ’92, Marijo Gillespie ’97 and Angela Ensley ’01. It is anticipated that Oakes, Wallower, Sunderhaus, (Gano) Marasco, (Tinucci) Barnett, (Porzio) Miller and (Porzio) Schleicher will be on hand for the special program, as will some of their former teammates.

Athletics Director Lisa Goddard McGuirk said of recognizing these outstanding former Cedar Crest athletes: “All of these women were tremendous athletes, but more than that, they exemplified commitment and dedication and led by example. As our department moves forward, it is important that we officially honor those who achieved excellence on the court.”

Tickets for the game are $3. For information call 610-606-4666 Ext 3667.
