NEWARK, Del. -- Two of the most successful coaches in UD history and five former All-Americans- including three who went on to professional careers-make up the third class of the University of Delaware Athletics Hall of Fame, Edgar N. Johnson, athletics, announced this month.

The Class of 1999 consists of football standout Harold "Buck" Thompson, former football All-American and National Football League standout Conway Hayman, All-American swimmer Mary Pat Johnson Jordan, the late swimming head coach Harry W. Rawstrom, three-time All-American lacrosse Randy Powers, All-American pitcher and former No. 1 draft pick Steve Taylor and current UD athletics administrator and former field hockey and basketball coach Mary Ann Hitchens.

The seven will be inducted into the UD Athletics Hall of Fame in Ceremony, Nov. 12, at the Bob Carpenter Sports/ Convocation Center. The group also will be recognized at halftime of the Delaware vs. Rhode Island football game on Nov. 13. Plaques recognizing each of their accomplishments will hang in the Hall of Fame wing of the Bob Carpenter Center, along with plaques of the 18 previous inductees.

"We are excited to once again induct another class into the UD Athletics Hall of Fame," said Johnson. "Much like our first two groups of inductees, these seven represent a wide range of sports and accomplishments, all of them impressive. Each has made a valuable contribution to the Blue Hen tradition of athletics."
