Viking Athletes Reunite for Hall of Fame Induction
Dozens of former North Park athletes came together for a special Viking reunion luncheon in September, a highlight of the Hall of Fame induction weekend.
Inductees honored at the event were John Born, Assistant Vice President for Athletics and Sport Management; Sonya Le C’13, Softball; Daniel Mulkerin C’88, Basketball; Jeff Pearson C’92, Basketball and Baseball; Emma (Lundeen) Woodley C’15 G’17, Soccer. A short program followed the buffet lunch, with an opening prayer by Terence Gadsden, athletic chaplain and campus pastor, and welcoming remarks by President Surridge. Attendees then enjoyed a video of highlights featuring past and present athletes.
The celebration continued into the afternoon, with a men’s soccer game and socializing at a local restaurant.
“It was a truly special event, one made even better by the fact that we hadn’t been able to be together for a couple of years,” said John Born, Assistant Vice President for Athletics and Sport Management.
