Chaskin still plays and is ranked second by the Eastern Tennis Association as a 60-and-over singles player. He also ranks second in doubles with his son.

Ralph Christian

Christian helped captain the 1976-77 basketball team that played for the NCAA Division III championship. He earned All-Tournament accolades that season, which included a Second Team All-SUNYAC selection and an appearance in the CUNY/SUNY All-Star game.

Christian went on to serve Binghamton University as an assistant basketball coach and later became an official with the Board 49 Southern Tier Men’s Chapter. He earned Official of the Year for the 1990-91 season.

Christian’s 1976-77 Oneonta team was inducted into O-State’s Hall as a Team of Distinction in 2008.

Rosemary Sorensen Harvey

Sorensen Harvey was a standout in volleyball, basketball and softball in the 1970s. She led the volleyball team to the AIAW national tournament in 1971, 1972 and 1973 and was selected as the Most Outstanding Senior Athlete in 1973.

From 1973-81, Sorensen Harvey was a Dietitian at Huntington Hospital. For the last 25 years, she has been a self-employed consultant dietitian for a local nursing home and individuals with developmental disabilities.

Susan Ritter Monfort

Ritter Monfort is the first women’s tennis Hall of Famer. She finished her four-year stint at O-State with an overall record of 40-5 in singles play, including an 11-0 mark as a senior.

Ritter Monfort won a SUNYAC title at third singles as a freshman in 1987. She also won back-to-back SUNYAC crowns at first doubles, in 1988 and 1989.

Ritter Monfort, who later worked in cardiac rehab and as a personal trainer, is the mother of four children ages 9-16.

Nuttall, who lost sight in his left eye when he was 8 years old, played guard for the Red Dragons in the early 1960s. His free throw percentage of 86.3 (120-for-139) during the 1962-63 season is still a single-season record at Oneonta, and his all-time free throw percentage of 82.7 still ranks third.
