Three players, team inducted into Pioneer Hall of Fame
Three basketball players from markedly different eras and the entire 1999 women’s soccer team, including their coaches, were inducted into the Pioneer Hall of Fame during Alumni Weekend 2010.
The Hall of Fame recognizes former athletes, coaches, and others who have made outstanding contributions to Transylvania athletics.
Andre K. Flynn ’85 was a four-year letter winner on the men’s basketball team. He was the Pioneers’ outstanding freshman, a team captain and most valuable player for two years, Male Athlete of the Year his junior season, and an NAIA District 32 All-American his senior year. He left Transy as the men’s No. 4 all-time scorer with 1,670 points and still ranks No. 8. He is head basketball coach at Fayette County High School in Fayetteville, Ga.
Stanley Hadley Jr. ’53 was a four-year letter winner on the men’s basketball team and a member of head coach C. M. Newton’s first two Transy teams. In his senior year he was named Mr. Pioneer and was president of the student council. He is a former member and president of the Alumni Executive Board and the recipient of the Morrison Medallion in 2000. He is a retired family physician who lives in Lexington.
Maria Paglialungo ’71 played basketball for four years and field hockey for two years. A prolific scorer in basketball, she tossed in 48 points against Midway College, 30 against the University of Louisville, and 36 points in each of three games during her senior year when the Pioneers were 9-1. As a semi-pro softball player, she played in nine national tournaments. She lives in Lexington and is the owner of Energy Medicine, a holistic health and fitness company.
The 1999 women’s soccer team became the first team to be inducted into the Pioneer Hall of Fame. The team fashioned one of the greatest seasons in Transy’s 130-year sports history by winning 23 straight games and advancing to the NAIA national championship game in Miami before losing 3-0 to Westmont College. The team’s 23-1 record included 16 shutouts and an aggregate score of 73-11 against all opponents. The Pioneers were led by head coach Parviz Zartoshty ’85, now director of soccer, and former assistant coach Scott Scanlon.
