Staff Report

SUNY Delhi has inducted Glen Reither, Jennifer LePinnet-Clark and Charles K. Ives Jr. into its athletics Hall of Fame, the college announced Monday.

Margaretville resident Reither served Margaretville as its athletic director from 1958-65 before starting a 26-year career at Delhi as an assistant professor of physical education.

From 1966-84, Reither coached the men’s soccer and baseball teams, with the latter going 17-5-1 in 1972-73 for the best record in program history.

Reither, who retired in 1991, has served as a member of the Oneonta Chapter of Officials for 21 years.

Walton graduate and Delhi resident LePinnet-Clark is Delhi’s all-time leading scorer in women’s basketball. She amassed 1,000 points from 2002-04 and ranked among the top 10 in the nation in scoring and rebounding.

Delhi named LePinnet-Clark its Female Athlete of the Year for 2002-03. She became the first Broncos woman to play Division I basketball, earning a full athletic scholarship to Manhattan College. There she served as co-captain for the 2005-2006 season.

In 2006, LePinnet-Clark received the Manhattan College Jasper Award for women’s basketball and was named to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference All-Academic Team.

East Worcester resident Ives is a Roxbury graduate who played basketball at Delhi under coach Robert Brown from 1959-61. Ives then joined the Air Force, where he formed the 695th Basketball Team. He served as the team’s captain for two years and led the 29th Air Division Tournament.

Ives returned to Delhi in 1965, again playing for Brown, and was honored as Athlete of the Year in 1966. He went on to East Stroudsburg State College after earning an associate’s degree in Building Construction at Delhi. He later earned a master’s degree in Physical Education from the University of Northern Iowa.

From 1973-74, Ives was a physical education instructor at Delhi and served as assistant coach to Brown.

He also taught physical education at Worcester, where he also was the athletic director and a coach from 1969-72 and from 1974-96.
