TRIO OF FALCONS SELECTED FOR HALL OF HONOR INDUCTION
Grantham, PA – With the College's annual Homecoming Day just hours away, Messiah College Athletics announced on Friday the 2016 induction class for the Falcons' Hall of Honor. Chris Roggie '00, Danae (Chambers) Hollenbach '06, and Hannah (Levesque) Leatherman '06 were all selected and will be formally inducted in a ceremony in January of 2016.
"Once again, we have a group of student-athletes that are more than qualified to join our Hall of Honor," Director of Athletics Jack Cole said. "Each year it gets harder and harder to select just three or four honorees. Chris, Danae, and Hannah really stood out, and we're excited to recognize them at the induction ceremony."
The Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony is scheduled for Jan. 8, 2016. The ceremony will take place on campus and inside of the newly-renovated Hostetter Chapel.
Tickets for the event are $30.00 and can be reserved here.
Below is a quick bio on each of the respective inductees:
Chris Roggie '00 – Wrestling

His 120 career wins are currently fourth-best all-time, and his 46 career falls are still good for third all-time. Roggie was also a four-time All-Conference wrestler, and in his senior year he helped the Falcons to a ninth-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

Chambers finished her career with 111 goals and 75 assists.
Hannah (Levesque) Leatherman '06 – Women's Soccer
Levesque was a two-time NSCAA All-American for the Falcons, and was apart of the program's first Division III National Championship in 2005. Her 38 career goals, 28 career assists, and 104 career points are all currently tied-ninth all-time. In her junior year alone she collected 19 goals and 12 assists. Levesque was also two-time NSCAA All-Region and two-time First Team All-Conference.
