All-American golfer and PGA-Tour member Matt Kuchar headlines the 2010 list of inductees to the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame, which also includes All-Atlantic Coast Conference basketball guard Drew Berry, All-American offensive lineman Chris Brown, All-American pitcher Chuck Crowder, cross country All-American Beth Old and track All-American Jonas Motiejunas.
“We are pleased and excited to announce this class joining the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame,” said Georgia Tech director of athletics Dan Radakovich. “They are all great ambassadors for the Institute and now rightfully take their place amongst the greats of Georgia Tech Athletics.”
Kuchar was the cornerstone in the resurrection of Georgia Tech’s golf program when he enrolled at Tech in 1996, winning the U.S. Amateur Championship after his freshman year and capturing seven collegiate titles.
Barry, who was enrolled at Georgia Tech from 1993-96, set an ACC Tournament record for assists while leading the Yellow Jackets to the 1993 conference title. He closed out his career by leading the Jackets to the ACC regular season crown and a Sweet-16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Brown’s arrival at Georgia Tech in 1997 coincided with the Yellow Jackets’ first bowl appearance in six years and the beginning of a consecutive bowl appearance string that currently stands at 14. He was a first-team consensus All-American during his senior year in 2000.
Crowder led the Georgia Tech baseball to three NCAA Tournament appearances in four years during his time in Atlanta (1996-99).
Old was at Georgia Tech from 1994-98 and earned All-American status in both cross country and track during that time.
Motiejunas racked up track All-American honors six times in relay events between 1994-99.
The group of former student-athletes will be inducted on October 15 at the annual Hall of Fame Induction Dinner at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.
Tickets for the dinner are $50 and can be purchased through the Alexander-Tharpe Fund at 404-894-6124. They will also be honored during Georgia Tech’s football game with Middle Tennessee State on October 15.
