Augusta Prep inducted its second class into the Steve Boyd Hall of Fame during homecoming festivities Oct. 3.
Among the inductees were David Shay, a 2002 Prep graduate who was part of three state championship tennis teams. Shay was the Region 4-AAA singles champion his junior and senior years.
In 2001, Shay was ranked No. 9 in the state in the United States Tennis Association boys 18 singles rankings. He was No. 45 in the South.
Shay's accomplishments landed him a spot on the tennis team at Washington and Lee University, where he played from 2003-2006. As a sophomore, Shay finished with a 27-8 singles record, good enough for second all-time at the school for singles wins in a season. Shay was team captain his senior year and was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference player of the year.
Brooke Gibson Hasenauer, also a 2002 graduate, was inducted for her tennis accomplishments as well. Hasenauer was part of four GISA title-winning teams. She won two doubles titles and a singles title.
At Williams College, Hasenauer was part of the school's first national title team and was named all-conference in singles and doubles.
Thomas Tucker received his hall of fame nod as one of the top Cavaliers basketball players in school history. Tucker's single-game point total of 44 was the school record until recently broken by Jim Hull. Tucker, a 1995 graduate, was twice an all-region selection and played at Clayton College and State University.
Carol Trammell, the current athletic director at Episcopal Day School, was one of Prep's early coaches. Trammell worked at Augusta prep from 1972 until 1981. She was the school's first volleyball coach and coached the first girls soccer team. She served as Prep's athletic director from 1979-1981.
The hall, named for longtime Cavaliers coach Steve Boyd, welcomed its first class in 2008.
Harlem, Lakeside softball bow out
Harlem's softball season ended Tuesday with a pair of losses at Effingham County in the opening round of the Class AAAA playoffs.
And Bulldogs coach Mike Leverett already is looking ahead. He said the team, which graduates only three seniors, will be in the weight room in a month and looking ahead to its summer program.
Leverett is excited about the players he has coming back -- a list that includes pitcher Kristin Mills, who will only be a junior in 2010.
"That's a coach's dream there," Leverett said of his returners. "And they got some experience in the state this year and some good pitching (coming back). That's going to really help us out."
Joining Mills at pitcher should be left-hander Kristin Rawlins, who was limited by injury her freshman season. Rawlins was one of eight freshman on the Bulldogs roster.
Leverett said seniors Brittany McLamb and Kayleigh McNair are both looking at playing in college. Leverett said McLamb is considering Georgia Military, while McNair will travel to various tryouts.
Lakeside, under first-year head coach Christina Steflik, earned a playoff berth after finishing as the fourth seed in Region 3-AAAA. The Panthers were eliminated Tuesday after losing the first two games of their opening round series with South Effingham.
