Ten athletes from the class of 2003 were inducted into the schoolâs Athletic Hall of Fame during halftime of the Homecoming football game on Oct. 3. Hall of Fame inductees included baseball players Brennan Boesch, Jason Glushon and Josh Satin, water polo players Juan Delgadillo, soccer players Ali Fisher and Gina Farias-Eisner, track and field athletes Katie DeWitt, Matt Lachman and John Ludden, and girlsâ volleyball standout Alex Dunphy. All members of the newly inducted class except for Farias-Eisner were present, whose mother Terry Farias-Eisner accepted the medal for her.
Delgadillo continued his water polo careers at the University of Southern California. Fisher and Farias-Eisner both continued their soccer careers at Stanford. DeWitt and Lachman continued their track careers at Yale, while Ludden continued his discuss-hammer career at University of California, Berkeley. Dunphy finished her volleyball days at Southern Cal.
Boesch, Glushon and Satin all played professionally in the minor leagues this season, with Boesch and Satin reaching Double-A and High-A respectively.
Boesch, who did not attend college, hit .275 with 28 home runs, 93 runs batted in, and 11 stolen bases in 527 at-bats for the Erie Sea Wolves, the Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. Satin, a Berkeley grad as well, spent the majority of his season with the New York Mets low-A affiliate the Savannah Sand Gnats before being called up to the Mets high-A affiliate, the Port St.Lucie Mets, in the final week of the season.In his first at-bat with St. Lucie Satin hit a home run en route to hitting .364 with five runs batted in in seven games and 22 at-bats at Port St. Lucie.
“It was awesome to be inducted,” Satin said. “Just to be able to come back to Harvard-Westlake, see some old friends and coaches while receiving a great honor in front of a huge crowd made it special.”
Keeping with tradition, Head of Athletics Audrius Barzdukas awarded each inductee with gold medals.
