Football star Tim Holloway '91 and women's basketball standout Laura (Menty) Menges '08 are the 2013 inductees into the Siena Athletic Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held Sunday, March 2 at TASTE in downtown Albany prior to Siena's men's basketball game against Monmouth. More details on the reception, including registration information will follow at a later time.
Holloway was a four-year starting defensive back for Siena from 1987-90. He was named to the Associated Press Little All-America Third Team (Division II and III) following his senior season, becoming the first athlete in any sport at Siena to earn recognition above Honorable Mention from the AP. Holloway's 23 career interceptions were an NCAA Division III record at the time his career ended, and the nine he had as a senior represent the most in a season program history. Holloway was named to the Atlantic Collegiate Football Conference All-League Team as a sophomore, junior and senior. The two-time captain finished his career with 251 tackles and 16 pass breakups. After graduating in 1991, Holloway played for the USA All-Stars in Europe. He will be the sixth football player inducted into the Hall of Fame, joining: Joseph Grasso '72, Michael Schongar '71, Charles Taaffe '73, Francis Bice '82 and Reggie Greene '98.
Menges was named 2005 MAAC Rookie of the Year, 2006 MAAC Second Team and 2007 and 2008 MAAC First Team. She was Siena's leading scorer for each of her four undergraduate years and stands fourth on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,779 career points. Menges was named Women's Basketball Coaches' Association National Player of the Month Honorable Mention for January of 2008. She possesses the second best career field goal percentage (.538) and second most free throws made (508) in program history. In 115 career games played, she averaged 15.5 points and shot 74% from the free throw line.
