New members of the Castleton Athletic Hall of Fame

CASTLETON-Two individuals and an outstanding team from Castleton State College were inducted to the Castleton Athletic Hall of Fame Sunday, Sept 23. Dozens of supporters, friends and family celebrated as Geoff Simons ('00, Men's Lacrosse), Mark Garrow ('81, Alumni Inductee) and the 1997-98 Women's Basketball Team joined the roster.

Simons is the most prolific goal-scorer in the history of the Spartan Men's Lacrosse program, tallying 173 career goals during his four-year career. At Castleton he was a four-time All-Mayflower Conference player and earned three Most Valuable Player awards.

Garrow is an award winning motorsports broadcaster who has created nationally syndicated radio shows, co-anchored some of the most exciting NASCAR race broadcasts, and negotiated one of the biggest business deals ever for a NASCAR news website.

The 1997-98 women's basketball team worked its way to being among the top five in the nation in team defense in both NAIA and NCAA. Nine different players averaged at least 5.3 points per contest.
