Stephanie Rickards Corrigan ’99 – New Inductee to Hall of Fame

BETHLEHEM, Pa. --- Stephanie Rickards Corrigan '99, a former women's basketball and women's volleyball standout, is being inducted into the Moravian College Athletic Hall of Fame on November 6, 2015 in Johnston Hall beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Corrigan was a four-year member of both volleyball and basketball teams. On the volleyball court, Corrigan set 13 records, nine of which are still school records including blocks in a career with 518 and career hitting percentage at .337. Corrigan is the only player in school history with more than 1,000 kills and 500 blocks as she added a then school record 1,422 kills in her career.

She was a three-time Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth League All-Star selection, and she twice made the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Mid-Atlantic Region team and helped lead her team to NCAA Division III Tournament appearances in both 1997 and 1998.

Each fall once Corrigan finished her volleyball season, she moved directly into her basketball season and was an integral part of the Greyhounds basketball team for four years. On the basketball court, she contributed 433 points and 363 rebounds for her career.

Corrigan's excellence on the court was matched, even exceeded, by her excellence in the classroom, finishing her degree at Moravian with a 4.0 and being a finalist for the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship.

She was honored in 1998 as the GTE/CoSIDA College Division Academic All-American of the Year, the top volleyball student-athlete in Division II, Division III and the NAIA. Stephanie was a two-time GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American in volleyball, making the Second Team in 1997 and the First Team in 1998, and she was honored on the MAC All-Academic Team six times in her career between both sports. Corrigan also spent three years on the NCAA Division III national Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, and she was Moravian’s first student-athlete selected to the NCAA Foundation Leadership Conference twice.

Corrigan is now an English teacher at Liberty High School in Bethlehem. Corrigan and her husband Michael reside in Bethlehem with their two children Bailey (8) and Riley (4).
