NEWARK, Del. -- Multi-sport athletes, including five former student-athletes with ties to the Blue Hen men's and women's basketball programs, highlight the list of inductees into the 2006 University of Delaware Athletics Hall of Fame announced today by UD Director of Athletics Edgar N. Johnson.

This year's class consists of nine former Blue Hen student-athletes and coaches, including five who played two or more sports and five who had ties to either the UD men's or women's basketball programs. The group will be formally inducted in an invitation-only ceremony at the University of Delaware's Bob Carpenter Center Friday, Nov. 17 and will be recognized prior to the Delaware vs. Villanova football game on Saturday, Nov. 18 at Delaware Stadium. The group is part of the 10th induction class and brings the total number of former Blue Hen greats entered into the hall to 86 members.

The Class of 2006 includes All-American high jumper Candy Cashell (Yorio), high-scoring field hockey and lacrosse forward Sue Daddona (Aoki), All-East basketball center Spencer Dunkley, 1950's football rushing standout and long-time UD football and track coach Jimmy Flynn, three-sport standout Jules "Ace" Hoffstein, All-American lacrosse goalkeeper Kim Jackson, 10-time conference swimming champion Lee Martin, 1950's record-setting football quarterback Don Miller, and high-scoring basketball forward Dave Sysko.

"We are once again proud to present such an accomplished group of former Blue Hen stars from the past," said Johnson, who will host the induction ceremony. "What makes this year's group stand out is the fact that so many of them excelled in more then one sport. We have 11 of our 23 sports represented and over 50 years of service to UD athletics."
