WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross Varsity Club has announced that six individuals have been selected for induction into the Holy Cross Athletic Hall of Fame. Included among the 2010 inductees is former women's soccer player Lee Hendrickson (Class of 1992).

Hendrickson was one of the top offensive players in the history of the Holy Cross women’s soccer program. As a freshman in 1987, she set Holy Cross single-season records with 47 points and 20 goals, in addition to posting seven assists. Hendrickson scored three goals in a game three different times during her freshman campaign, tying the school single-game record at the time. In her sophomore campaign, she led the team with 10 goals and six assists for 26 points. After missing the 1989 and 1990 seasons due to injury, Hendrickson returned to the pitch for her senior season in 1991 to score six goals and record two assists for the Crusaders. Almost 20 years after playing her last game, she still holds the Holy Cross career records for points (87) and goals (36), while ranking fifth all-time in assists (15).

This year's other inductees are Tom Kelleher (Class of 1988, football), Lynn Liberatore (Class of 1995, cross country, track & field), Patrick Rissmiller (Class of 2002, ice hockey), John Vrionis (Class of 1968, football, lacrosse) and Dr. James Walsh (Class of 1952, honorary).

These six individuals will be formally inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 8, at the Varsity Club’s annual dinner, to be held in the Hogan Campus Center.
