James Garneau

JOHN GARNEAU ('64): The girls' volleyball coach at Belmont High School for 21 years, John Garneau is one of the most accomplished coaches in New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association history. He guided his BHS teams to an amazing 344-35 record (.908) with seven state championships. A seven-time recipient of the New Hampshire Coach of the Year award, Garneau was the National H.S. Coach of the Year for Region I in 1982. He was a co-founder of the N.H. Volleyball Coaches Association, and was inducted into the N.H. Coaches' Hall of Fame in 1996.

Garneau also started PSC's varsity women's volleyball program in ‘96, coaching the team the first two seasons to an impressive 47-13 record. He led the team to a remarkable 25-3 record in the inaugural campaign, including victories in the first 21 matches of the program's history.

 

Moses Jean-Pierre

MOSES JEAN-PIERRE ('95): The all-time scoring leader in more than 50 years of basketball at Plymouth State, Moses Jean-Pierre was selected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. He set nearly two dozen school records from 1990-94, including career points (2,483), assists (669), steals (497), and consecutive games with a successful three-pointer (32).

A three-time All-New England selection, Jean-Pierre was the 1994 ECAC New England Player of the Year and First Team All-America as a senior, when he averaged 28.8 points and set numerous records, including the NCAA mark for steals. The Cambridge, Mass. native led PSC to ECAC Tournament appearances in 1991 and 1994, helping the Panthers make it to the finals in '94. One of the all-time fan favorites at Foley Gymnasium, Jean-Pierre had his #12 retired in 1996, one of only three PSC men's uniform numbers retired.

 

Gerd Lutter

GERD LUTTER: One of the most successful coaches in Plymouth State's history, Gerd Lutter guided the Panther men's soccer team for 23 seasons from 1969-91. He led PSC to 21 straight winning seasons and an overall record of 253-73-42, qualifying for the post-season 15 times in 17 years from 1973-89. Lutter guided PSC to 12 NCAA Tournament berths and three ECAC Tournaments, and his 1983 team advanced to the Division III National Championship game.

A long-time instructor in PSC's Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department, Lutter was the first Little East Conference Coach of the Year in 1989. He has coached several PSC Hall of Famers, including Steve Clark, the school's all-time leading scorer who finished second in the 1983 Herman Award Voting. While Lutter made his mark coaching soccer, he also served stints at PSC as men's basketball and track coach.

 

Nancy MacCallum

NANCY MacCALLUM ('89): An outstanding two-sport athlete at PSC in the late 1980's and PSC's Female Athlete of the Year in 1988-89, Nancy MacCallum was a key member of both Panther women's soccer and basketball teams. An All-Star defender, she helped the soccer team to one ECAC Tournament (1985), the first three NCAA Tournament appearances in school history (1986-88) and a combined record of 62-14-1.

MacCallum earned Soccer All-America and All-New England honors in both 1987 and 1988. A four-year member of the Panther basketball team, MacCallum still ranks 15th on PSC's all-time women's basketball scoring list with 650 points. A native of Houston, she has continued her involvement in athletics by coaching youth sports at Landrum Middle School in Houston.

Stephen Moltisanti

STEPHEN MOLTISANTI ('74): One of the top lacrosse players to ever put on a Panther uniform, Steve Moltisanti made his mark as a scoring force for Plymouth State in the early 1970s. A three-time All-New England selection, Moltisanti capped a terrific career in 1973 by setting the New England career assist record with 150.

A quarter century later, he still holds the PSC career assist standard and ranks second on the school's all-time list for points (219). An extremely skillful passer, Moltisanti holds three of PSC's top 10 single-season assist marks, while scoring 69 career goals. His offensive efforts helped PSC regularly contend for top honors in Colonial League. Moltisanti was "in a class by himself," according to a teammate, and was well-overdue to receive PSC's Hall of Fame nod.

Mary-Bridget Pawlik-Blandini

MARY-BRIDGET PAWLIK-BLANDINI ('94): One of the finest athletes ever at Plymouth State, female or male, Mary-Bridget Pawlik-Blandini was a standout on the Panther women's soccer team from 1990-93 and is being inducted in her first year of eligibility. A dominating offensive player, Pawlik-Blandini became PSC's all-time women's soccer scoring leader with 56 goals and 140 points. She led PSC to four straight NCAA Tournament berths from 1990-93, including a pair of Final Four appearances and a combined record of 60-9-4. She received All-America honors in '92 and '93, and was the Little East Conference Player of the Year both years.

A native of North Andover, Mass., Pawlik-Blandini scored a school-record 19 goals as a junior, and came back to break her own mark with 20 goals as a senior in 1993. That year she received her highest honor by being selected NCAA Division III National Player of the Year.

 

Duncan Walsh

DUNCAN WALSH ('86): One of the all-time leading scorers in PSC's ice hockey history, Duncan Walsh has also distinguished himself as a very successful high school hockey coach in the Granite State. Walsh skated for the Panthers from 1982-86, and he ranks second on PSC's all-time list for goals (62), assists (75) and points (137). As a senior in 1985-86, he set the single-season school records for goals (29), assists (37), and points (66), leading PSC to a school-record 19 wins and to the finals of the ECACs, its first ever play-off berth.

Now in his 10th year as head coach and 14th year on the staff at Concord High School, Walsh has led CHS to a 180-36-2 mark in his first nine years, including five Division I state titles ('92, '96, '97, '98, '99) and two runners-up ('93, '95). The Concord native was selected N.H. Coach of the Year in 1992 and 1998.
