Webster University Athletics inducted four new members into its Hall of Fame on Feb. 8, 2014. Webster celebrated the 2014 inductees during halftime at the men’s basketball game in Grant Gymnasium.
Sue McClintock worked for the athletics department at Webster for almost 18 years. She started in 1988 and retired in 2005.
“I loved being with the kids and I loved sports,” McClintock said.
McClintock worked with four different athletic directors in her time at Webster and had the opportunity to witness milestones for the department as it grew over the years.
Angela Martinez Brooks
Angela Martinez Brooks, a 2003 alumna, was inducted for her time on Webster’s soccer team. Her sister Niki Martinez Tedoni was inducted in 2010. The sisters were on Webster’s team at the same time. Both described that time as a blessing.
“There were times it was challenging. But for me I had so much trust in her(Niki Martinez Tedoni) off the field,” Brooks said. “I never had that dynamic with another player. I trusted them but it’s different when they’re your own blood.”
Brooks played for Webster for two years after transferring from Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO ) and said her sister recruited her to Webster. Brooks was an NSCAA All-Region Scholar Team selection in 2002. And she was the SLIAC Newcomer of the Year in 2001.
Brett Mueller, a 2008 alumnus, was inducted for his achievements on Webster’s baseball team. He was the starter and reliever for the team and holds career records for lowest earned run average (2.36) and highest win-loss percentage (.933).
Mueller said a few words about his time on the team during a celebration for HOF inductees and their families in Sunnen Lounge. He attributed his success to the success of his team.
“I wouldn’t trade the team of guys I played with for anything,” Mueller said during the HOF family celebration.
Gail Vogt, a 2008 alumna, was inducted for her time on the softball team. She said her team’s success made her proud.
“We went through ups and downs and came out on top,” Vogt said during the HOF family celebration.
She was SLIAC Softball Player of the Year in 2007. She was a pitcher for the team, but also held high batting records. She holds the pitching record at Webster for most innings pitched and is second for strikeouts. Vogt hold the second highest career batting average (.404).
