    Tech Sports Hall of Fame Welcomes Six New Members
    Total number enshrined is now 169

    BLACKSBURG – Six new members were inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame during a banquet on the Tech campus Friday night.

    The 2013 inductees are:

    Bobby Beecher, a talented big-man who helped Tech men’s basketball to four postseason appearances and was part of the winningest class in Hokie hoops history.

    Clarisa Crowell, who did it all for the Hokies on the softball field from 1999 through 2002, earning honors in two different conferences.

    John Engelberger, a football walk-on who went on to earn a scholarship, All-America status and a starting job in the NFL.

    Jimmy Milley, whose Tech tennis career during the late 1970s featured a long list of firsts for the Hokie program.

    Joe Saunders, an All-America pitcher for the Hokies whose record-setting career led to his first-round selection in the Major League Baseball draft.

    Johnson Wagner, who led Tech’s golf team to a pair of high finishes in the NCAA Championships on the way to All-America honors and a spot on the PGA Tour.

    The new inductees will be recognized during Saturday’s football game between Tech and Maryland at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field.
