Liz Bagley-Stankavage ’92 was a standout in both lacrosse and field hockey during her career on College Hill. In lacrosse, she scored 134 career points, including 53 goals in her junior season, when she led the Leopards to a Patriot League Championship and a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. She followed this with a 33-goal, 10-assist effort as a senior and added another Patriot League title. The Leopards were champions of the East Coast Conference during Bagley-Stankavage’s first season. She left Lafayette with a 55-17 career record in lacrosse and a perfect 14-0 record in the Patriot League. In both her junior and senior seasons, Bagley-Stankavage was named to the Brine/IWCLA and USWLA All-American teams, and was an All-Patriot League performer.

In field hockey, she tallied 33 career points and helped lead the Leopards to back-to-back Patriot League championships in her junior and senior seasons, an East Coast Conference championship as a sophomore, a four year record of 59-21, and a 14-0 conference record. During her junior and senior seasons she was an All-Patriot League performer.

Robert P. Falconiero ’80 was a prolific scoring guard for the basketball team. Using a deft shooting touch, he became the 17th member of the 1,000-point club at Lafayette. A two-year captain, he left College Hill with 1,169 career points, which at the time placed him eighth on the all-time scoring list. In addition to his 1,169 points, Falconiero left Lafayette as the career leader in free throw-shooting accuracy (83.9%) and assists (419). He forever cemented his place in the annals of Lafayette basketball when he hit a 35-foot buzzer beater to lift the Leopards to an 81-80 victory over Big 5 power La Salle, which featured reigning National Player of the Year Michael Brooks.

Falconiero was a CoSIDA Academic All-American in 1980 and a recipient of the Class of 1913 Trophy as Lafayette’s top senior scholar-athlete. He also was a three-time Dana Scholar Award winner, a Pepper Prize nominee, and a recipient of the Phi Gamma Delta Education Award in 1978 and the Philadelphia Alumni Scholarship in 1980.

David C. Hubinger ’53 will be the first men’s tennis player inducted into the Maroon Club Hall of Fame. He dominated on the court during his Lafayette career, winning 36 of 38 matches in three seasons as the team’s No. 1 singles player and going undefeated for the freshman team. In his undefeated senior season, Hubinger served as team captain. He was selected to the Junior Davis Cup Sectional team.

In his post-collegiate career, Hubinger won four West Virginia state singles championships, two West Virginia doubles championships, three Delaware singles titles, two Delaware doubles titles, and seven Delaware Senior Olympic Gold Medals. He was recently inducted into the Luzerne County Sports Hall of Fame.
