FOUR TO BE INDUCTED INTO ODU'S SPORTS HALL OF FAME
Old Dominion University's Sports Hall of Fame will induct its 2005 class at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. This year's class includes Ronnie Drumwright, Kevin Gibbs, Odell Hodge, and Charlie Ogletree.
Drumwright ran track and field for the Norfolk Division from 1955-58, setting five school records. He won the 1957 conference title in the 880, accomplishing an undefeated season at that distance.
Gibbs played outfield for the Monarchs baseball team from 1993-95. In 1994, he was named the CAA Player of the Year and was a member of Team USA that season. Gibbs helped lead ODU to consecutive CAA Titles and NCAA appearances in 1994 and 1995. He was also named a CoSIDA Academic All-American and is currently enrolled at the University of Maryland Law School.
One of only four Virginia Division I college-athletes to score more than 2,000 career points and grab more than 1,000 rebounds, Hodge helped the Monarchs capture the CAA championship title in 1997. That year he received the CAA's Dean Ehlers Award for sportsmanship. Hodge completed his basketball career with 2,117 points and 1,086 rebounds.
A member of the sailing team, Ogletree earned first-team Collegiate Sailing All-American honors in 1989. He skippered ODU to first place finishes at the War Memorial Regatta and the Anderson Trophy as a junior. Since graduating from ODU, Ogletree has represented Team USA three times in the Olympic games.
The evening begins with a social at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Hall of Fame ceremony at 6:15 p.m. and the banquet at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at ODU's athletic ticket office.
