Claremont, Calif. (October 13, 2010) – Pitzer College congratulates Eric Dugan ’00 and Creed Pettit ’99, the 2010 Sagehen Hall of Fame inductees. They will be honored at the Induction Ceremony in Edmonds Ballroom at 6 pm on November 6, 2010.
Dugan, who majored in environmental studies, was a four-year letter winner and the Most Valuable Player each year he played on the soccer team. He earned four straight First Team All-SCIAC honors and twice won SCIAC Player of the Year honors. He was awarded four straight NSCAA All Far West First Team honors and named twice to the NSCAA All American Team. In his first year on the squad, Dugan helped lead the team to the SCIAC Championships.
Pettit, who majored in organizational studies, was a four year starter and earned Second Team All-SCIAC honors as a first-year (then team left SCIAC) where he played on the defensive line all four years. Pettit served as team captain his senior year. “Creed was a leader through his actions on and off the field. His intensity during practice is what made him such an effective player,” said Coach Roger Caron.
Inductees are selected by a committee of seven Hall of Fame members and five faculty or staff from the athletics department from a list of approved criteria.
