The Fame Names

The University is inducting three new members to its athletic hall of fame on Nov. 15: Pete Gillen, who is the University’s winningest basketball coach, rifle star Jason Parker and former two-sport standout Karen Ohe Jagers.

Gillen went 202-75 in his nine seasons as head coach, leading the team to seven NCAA Tournament berths—including a Sweet 16 appearance in 1990—and a trip to the NIT quarterfinals.

Ohe Jagers lettered four years in basketball and two in volleyball. She grabbed a school record 873 rebounds for the basketball team and led the volleyball team to its best season ever, 29-9.

Parker earned seven All-American citations as a member of the rifle team, leading it to first place in air rifle in the 1996 NCAA Championship. He also participated in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.
