Cleveland State University inducted four new members to the Athletics Hall of Fame in a ceremony Feb. 3, at the Wolstein Center.

The university inducted four athletesSarah Galon, Christine  (Kohler) Myeroff, Kristen Obush and Jake Scott.

Galon (2003-2007), a standout on the women’s tennis team during her time at Cleveland State, was the first to earn First Team All-Horizon League honors in four consecutive years while competing at the university.

She finished her playing career with 79 career singles wins and 75 double victories.

The second inductee, Christine (Kohler) Myeroff (1983-1986), was a four-time letter winner in track, as well as receiving three letter-winner awards in cross country.

Myeroff also qualified for the NCAA District IV Cross Country Championships in 1983, 1984 and 1985.

She was Cleveland State’s top finisher in six cross country events in 1983.

Myeroff additionally set school records in the 4x400 meter relay team event in 1986 and also held records in the 1,500 meters and the long jump, where she jumped an astounding 15’6.”

Kristen Obush (2002-2006), the third inductee of the class, was a representative of the women’s golf program.

Obush has been heralded as one of the most dominant golfers in the history of the Horizon League. During her tenure at Cleveland State, she managed all-league honors in all four years. She also shot a then school record round of 74 which now ranks sixth all-time.

In 2003 Obush won two tournaments and backed it up in 2005 with two more tournament wins. Obush finished her Cleveland State run by being the top finisher in 35 out of 44 tournaments, and recorded 12 top-10 finishes in her career.

The final inductee, Jake Scott (2006-2009), represented the men’s golf program.

Scott, considered a key component in building the current iteration of the men’s golf program into a dynasty, became the first player in the program’s history to earn League Player of the Year when he took home the award in 2009.

In terms of impact that he had upon the program, Scott ranks second with a career scoring average of 74.1 while also shooting under par 45 times.

He also holds the record for playing the most career rounds with 140 rounds to his name and managed to win four events, ranking him second in program history.

Scott holds two single scoring records where he posted a 72.7 average as a junior, and then as a senior, which increased his scoring average to 73.2 and placed him sixth in team history.

Cleveland State recognized the four former athletes at the men’s basketball game during halftime on the court.
