CORTLAND – Eight new members will be inducted into the SUNY Cortland C-Club Hall of Fame during its 43rd annual banquet and ceremonies on Saturday, Oct. 29, in the school’s Corey Union.
Among those eight are Barbara Moenich LoPiccolo (Class of 1969), one of Cortland’s first female intercollegiate athletes and a successful physical educator and coach in the Norwich City Schools.
LoPiccolo arrived at Cortland in 1965 just prior to the advent of women’s intercollegiate athletic opportunities at the college. She played on intramural and class teams in field hockey, soccer, volleyball, and basketball for three years, and was a member of the club lacrosse team in 1968-’69. In her senior year, she played guard on Cortland’s intercollegiate women’s basketball team and outfield on the intercollegiate softball squad.
