Sister Agnes Rose Burton, CSJ, and Sister Tess Wysolmerski Inducted into The College of Saint Rose Athletics Hall of Fame
ALBANY – The College of Saint Rose inducted two venerable supporters and three former outstanding student-athletes into its Athletics Hall of Fame during an on-campus ceremony at the Thelma P. Lally School of Education on Saturday, September 15, at 6:00 pm.
A celebration honoring the 2011 women's soccer national championship was held throughout the afternoon at the Plumeri Sports Complex. The Golden Knights have a 1:00 pm game versus Southern New Hampshire.
The 2012 Athletics Hall of Fame class includes the following individuals; longtime supporters and Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Sister Agnes Rose Burton, CSJ and Sister Tess Wysolmerski, CSJ; Eli Armstrong (men's basketball, 1977-82), Renae Ransdell (women's soccer, 2001-04), and Kelly Starr Daniel (1993-97).
Professors' emeriti Sr. Agnes Rose Burton, CSJ and Sr. Tess Wysolmerski, CSJ, probably hold the record for the number of Saint Rose athletics events attended. In more than 40 years as faculty, these two Sisters of St. Joseph have demonstrated unwavering support of the Saint Rose Athletics program and individual student-athletes. In addition to attending the home games of various Saint Rose teams, they have provided social, academic, and professional guidance to countless student-athletes and staff. When current and former student-athletes talk about "the nuns," they mention the annual "Father Time" parties during holiday and semester breaks, the countless hours spent with them on graduate school applications, and their genuine interest and encouragement in and outside the classroom.
