Seton Hill announced its newest athletic hall of fame inductees.

The four-member class features lacrosse player Matt Delmonico (Class of 2014), men’s basketball player Chris Giles (2012), football player Antwarn Jones (’10) and women’s soccer player Nicky Pergar (’08).

• Delmonico, a three-time All-American, holds career school records for points (242), goals (166) and assists (76).

He helped lead the Griffins to their first NCAA Tournament trip in 2013.

He later was drafted by the Vancouver Stealth of the National Lacrosse League.

• Giles was a three-time All-WVIAC pick and holds Seton Hill hoops records for points (1,864), field goals (711), free throws (432), assists (323) and steals (217). Giles played pro basketball in China and Costa Rica.

He is the boys basketball coach at Propel Academy and a teacher at Obama Academy in Pittsburgh.

• A regular all-conference football player, Jones also made all-region in 2008.

He holds program records for career rushing yards (4,186) and carries (889).

His rushing total of 1,323 yards, 285 attempts and 15 touchdowns are single-season records.

He helped guide Seton Hill to its only NCAA postseason appearance, in 2008.

• Pergar was a four-time all-conference and a second-team all-region player.

She scored 57 goals and handed out 22 assists in her career.

In 2005, Seton Hill went 16-2-2 and made the regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament as Pergar had 18 goals and eight assists.

The former standouts will be inducted Oct. 11 during a special dinner and will be recognized Oct. 12 during the Griffins’ homecoming football game against Gannon.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
