A dedication ceremony of the Froelich Gatehouse, the main entrance to Boswell Field, will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13. The guests of honor will be Edward A. ’55 and Joanne Froelich whose generous support of Campaign for the Colleges enabled Hobart and William Smith to renovate and endow the Abraham Sports Medicine Room and Visiting Team Locker Room in Elliott Varsity House. The newly-renovated Gatehouse, also made possible through the Froelichs’ long-standing commitment, has been named in their honor.
The dedication will occur just prior to the Hobart football team’s game against Rochester on Boswell Field at the Caird Center for Sports and Recreation. The annual clash for the Centennial Cup is scheduled to kick off at 12:05 p.m. On the field, the Statesmen (5-3, 3-2) and Yellowjackets (3-5, 2-3) will square off for the 103rd time since 1892. Hobart holds a 48-47-7 series lead.
Prior to kickoff, at 11:45 a.m., the Statesmen will honor the football team’s 12 seniors. The Class of 2011 has guided Hobart to a record of 28-11 (.718), capturing two Liberty League Championships and earning two NCAA Tournament bids.
Then at halftime, the College will recognize Hobart Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2010. The eight member class includes: Forelich, of New York City; as well as Michael A. Charpinsky ’63, of Port Crane, N.Y.; Michael C. Cragg P’13, of Geneva, N.Y.; Henry “Hank” Janczyk ’76, of Gettysburg, Pa.; Jon P. Kraus ’55, P’80, of Yuba City, Calif.; Lawrence C. Slattery ’64, of Naples, Fla.; Harvey F. Wiltsey ’58, of Bellevue, Neb., and the late Donald J. Bruno ’55.
