Muskingum dedicates Sherman Field, honors newest HOF class and recognizes the 1955 football championship team during 2005 Homecoming

Muskingum College officially dedicated Sherman Football Field, honored the newest members of the Muskingum Athletic Hall of Fame and recognized the 1955 Ohio Athletic Conference football championship team during the Muskingum-Capital University Homecoming game on Saturday, October 15.

During a special pre-game ceremony, Muskingum College President Anne C. Steele presided over the dedication and ribbon-cutting of the new ProGrass artificial surface on Sherman Field in McConagha Stadium. Through the help of some 55 alumni and friends, including many former student-athletes, the turf project became reality.

At halftime, Muskingum's newest members of the Athletic Hall of Fame were recognized: Jennifer Segner-Filtz '00 - Softball, John Wells (Posthumous) - Softball, Bob Gerhardstein '77 - Football, Paul Christopher '87 - Men's Golf.

Also at the half, Muskingum honored the 1955 Ohio Athletic Conference football championship team. The squad went a perfect 7-0 in league play and 8-0 overall en route to capturing Muskingum's ninth OAC football title.
