2016 Franklin College Athletic Hall of Fame Class

Chris Chastain Goldsberry

Goldsberry, Class of 1983, was a standout on the court in basketball and volleyball from 1979 through 1983 seasons. She helped lead the basketball team to a victory against Butler University in 1980 to win the state title and advance to the AIAW Division II national championships in Green Bay, Wisconsin. She earned 1983 AIAW All-District 21 honors and currently ranks seventh in Franklin women’s basketball history with 600 career rebounds.

In volleyball, Goldsberry earned district Most Valuable Player honors in 1982 as the Grizzlies won the state’s top two tournaments. She also helped the team finish fifth in the NAIA Division II national tournament.

Chad McCullough

McCullough, Class of 1996, was a two-time all-conference runner for the men’s cross country and track and field teams. He earned all-conference accolades in cross country during the 1993 season and won a league title in the 1,500-meter run in 1996.

McCullough remained active at Franklin after graduation, serving as a volunteer assistant coach during the late 1990s. In 2015, he started the Memorial Day Mile, an annual race in Franklin, Indiana that has become one of the most popular running events in the country.

Mary Alice Medlicott

Medlicott, Class of 1945, has been a devoted fan of Franklin College athletics since growing up following her uncle, legendary Franklin College basketball coach Ernest “Griz” Wagner. She was born in a house directly across the street from the college’s old gym (now the fitness center), and some of her earliest memories are of attending campus athletic events.

Franklin awarded Medlicott an honorary doctorate in 2010, during the college’s 175th anniversary celebration.
