The 40th annual Hall of Fame Banquet and induction ceremony will be held in the Alexander G. Hill Ballroom in Kagin Commons, starting at 6:00 p.m.
Bob Berquist was a three-sport athlete at Macalester in the 1950s, playing football all four years while earning three letters in baseball and two letters in basketball. On the gridiron, Bob was the Scots' starting quarterback and played alongside twin brother Jim in the backfield. Bob received All-MIAC honors in 1955 and 1956 while also being named an All-American. His leadership and success on the field led Macalester to winning records as a sophomore and junior and laid the groundwork for a 6-1-1 campaign in 1957, a season he would miss due to an injury. Prior to the injury, Bob was the baseball team's center fielder.
A four-year starter for the men's soccer team, Nick Adams earned three-All-MIAC citations and two team MVP awards during the mid-1990s. As a sophomore, he set a school record that still stands today with 16 assists en route to All-Conference honors. Nick's best season was his last as a Scot, as he led Macalester to a 14-5 record and an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament. That year, he registered 14 goals and 12 assists for 40 points and was named the MIAC Player of the Year. Nick concluded his career with a program-best 37 assists while ranking fifth all-time in points (91) and ninth in goals (27).
Every great soccer team often has a standout goalkeeper, and the Macalester women's soccer teams of the late 1990s had Anna Bacho Flory. Anna became the Scots' primary goalkeeper her sophomore year in 1997, and the team didn't lose a MIAC game over the next three years. Her career numbers speak for themselves: 66 victories, 49 shutouts, just 28 goals allowed and a miniscule 0.38 goals against average, which translates to about a goal every three games. In the national-championship season of 1998, Anna gave up six goals in 22 games while posting 15 shutouts. The 15th clean sheet that year came in the NCAA final, as Anna made six saves in a 1-0 quadruple-overtime win. As a senior she earned All-MIAC and All-Region honors with 16 shutouts, as the Scots advanced to the NCAA final again.
Kaela Schramm excelled as a hurdler, sprinter and jumper as a member of the Macalester women's track & field teams. She posted 10 All-MIAC performances in five different events while winning five conference titles in four different events. After winning the 100-meter hurdles as a sophomore and the indoor triple jump as a junior, Kaela captured the 55-meter dash and the 55-meter hurdles indoors and the 100-meter hurdles outdoors as a senior. Her two titles at the MIAC Indoor Championships earned her the Performer of the Meet award. Kaela competed at the 2007 NCAA Indoor Championships in the 55-meter hurdles and placed fourth to receive All-American honors. Her time of 8.25 in the prelims set a MIAC record that stood for nine years.
