GENESEO, N.Y. - The SUNY Geneseo Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce the 2019 SUNY Geneseo Sports Hall of Fame class. The group will be honored at the annual Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony slated for Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 4 p.m on the campus of SUNY Geneseo.
The 2019 class includes the induction of soccer standout Ed Curry '96 (posthumous), lacrosse All-Americans Owahn Bazydlo '07 and Patrick Riehlman '06 and softball star Audrey Kuhn Michalski '07.
A four-time SUNYAC all-star, Curry aided Geneseo to a record of 41-27-5 over his four seasons. A 1994 All-Region selection, Curry earned a pair of first team All-SUNYAC honors in 1994 and 1995, along with second team recognition in 1993 and honorable mention in 1992. He graduated fourth and still stands seventh on the Geneseo career assist chart with 13 helpers and is fifth on the Geneseo career goal scoring chart with 32. In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Curry was a standout in the classroom, earning the SUNYAC's Holloway Award as the top scholar-athlete in the conference in 1993, 1994 and 1995. A native of Oceanside, New York, Curry lost his life in a traffic accident while working as a bike messenger for Pelican Delivery in San Francisco in 1997.
A native of Syracuse, New York, and a graduate of Corcoran High School, Bazydlo is one of only three three-time All-Americans from a team sport at Geneseo. He earned honorable mention All-America from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) in 2005 and 2006 and garnered third team recognition in 2007. Bazydlo claimed first team All-SUNYAC honors on three occasions (2005-07) and played in the 2007 USILA North/South Senior All-Star game. He led Geneseo to a record of 45-18 over his four seasons, played in three NCAA Division III tournaments and four SUNYAC championship games, resulting in a pair of conference titles (2004, 2007). He scored 79 goals (first for a midfielder, 10th overall at graduation, 14th currently) with 39 assists (fourth/21st/25th) for 118 points (second/18th/23rd).
The second of the three, three-time team sport All-Americans, Riehlman earned honorable mention honors from 2004-06. The 2003 SUNYAC Rookie of the Year posted All-SUNYAC recognition in each of his four seasons, including first team in 2004. The Skaneateles, New York product aided the Knights to a record of 49-16 over his four seasons, playing in two NCAA Division III tournaments and four SUNYAC championship games, while winning one conference title (2004). He set program records for a midfielder in points (141) and assists (64) and his 77 goals stands second to Bazydlo's 79. On the all-time charts, the 141 points was 11th at graduation and currently stands 15th, while his goals are 10th/15th and eighth/11th on the charts. Riehlman played in the USILA North/South Senior All-Star game in 2006 and earned Academic All-America honors.
A native of Ballston Lake, New York and graduate of Shenendehowa High School, Kuhn, is arguably the top dual-threat player in the history of the Geneseo softball program as her name litters both the pitching and batting charts for the Knights. In the circle, Kuhn stands second all-time behind Geneseo Hall of Famer Sarah Taub in innings pitched (504), wins (47), shutouts (24), strikeouts (438) and earned run average (1.24). In 2005, she set school records for a season in innings (180), shutouts (11) and earned run average (0.66). At the plate, Kuhn graduated second in career homeruns (16), third in hits (162), third in walks (47), fourth in doubles (31) and fourth in RBI (102). Kuhn earned 2004 National Fastpitch Coaches Association first team All-American and was a two-time NFCA All-Region and All-SUNYAC selection (2004, 2005). The Knights posted a record of 95-69 during her four years and competed in a pair of ECAC Upstate tournaments, winning the title in 2005.
In addition to highlighting these four individuals, the ceremony will include recognition of the accomplishments of the 2006 and 2007 men's lacrosse teams.
The event is open to the public.
