Three Buccaneers Inducted Into SSC Hall of Fame
Three former Buccaneers were inducted as part of the 2007 class of the Sunshine State Conference Hall of Fame at an awards dinner in Orlando on June 9.
Former Buccaneer women’s soccer star and coach, Kyllene Carter-Weiss, headlines the group. As a player for the Bucs, she led the team to Barry’s first-ever national championship in 1989, earning Offensive Most Outstanding Player. As a senior, she was named 1990 NCAA Division II Player of the Year.
Carter-Weiss took over the head coaching reigns in 2001 and led the Bucs to four straight SSC championships and five straight NCAA Tournament bids. Her squads compiled a six-year mark of 74-23-10 (.738). She was selected SSC Coach of the Year in 2002 and 2004.
Former softball standout Stephanie Caldwell and tennis star Anna Hallbergson were also inducted.
Caldwell was a four-time All-SSC pick (1997-2000) and twice named SSC Player of the Year (1998-99) when she claimed NFCA All-America honors. She is second all-time at Barry in pitching wins (77), no-hitters (5), innings pitched (690.0) and strikeouts (620). Additionally, she ranks second in doubles (43) and hits (203) and third in batting (.378) and RBI (119). She set the single season record for batting with a .472 average in 1998.
Hallbergson is a two-time ITA All-American (1999-2000) and three-time member of the SSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll. In 2000, she became one of five Buccaneers to be named Florida’s NCAA Woman of the Year. She compiled a 31-28 mark in singles and 44-29 in doubles.
