MORGANTOWN (AP) - Former West Virginia University athletics director Ed Pastilong, a Moundsville native, and basketball standout Lee Patrone, a Bellaire native, are among seven people who will be inducted into the university's Sports Hall of Fame this fall.
Current athletics director Oliver Luck announced the Class of 2012 on Saturday.
Others being inducted are soccer standout Katie Barnes, swimmer Dan Cavanaugh, football offensive tackle Ben Dunkerley and defensive back Bo Orlando, and basketball players Maurice Robinson.
Induction ceremonies will take place on Sept. 22 prior to WVU's home football game with Maryland.
Pastilong spent more than three decades at WVU, serving as athletics director from 1989 to 2010. He oversaw more than $65 million in facility renovations, including many at Mountaineer Field. Under his watch, the athletics budget grew from $20 million to more than $50 million, and Pastilong steered WVU into the Big East football conference.
Pastilong lettered as a WVU quarterback in 1964 and 1965. After coaching stints at Scott High and Salem College, he joined the WVU athletics department as football recruiting coordinator in 1976 and two years later became its scholarship officer. He was named assistant athletic director for facilities and operations in 1979 and was promoted to associate athletic director in 1987.
Patrone lettered on the basketball team from 1959-61. He was second to Jerry West in team scoring in 1960 and was captain of the 1961 team. He finished his career with 1,028 points and 210 assists.
Barnes' WVU soccer career spanned 1998-2001 and she was a two-time Big East offensive player of the year. She led the Mountaineers to their first-ever NCAA tournament appearance as a junior.
Cavanaugh was WVU's first swimmer to qualify for the NCAA meet and was a two-time Southern Conference champion. He competed in 1959 and 1960 and missed two seasons of competition due to military service. He still holds the 100-meter world record for the 70-to-75 age group.
Dunkerley lettered in football for two years, earning second-team Associated Press All-America honors in 1952. The Mountaineers went 7-2 that season. He died in 1987 at age 56.
Orlando was a key in the WVU secondary from 1985-88. He was co-captain of the 1988 team that went undefeated during the regular season. He played 10 seasons with the Houston Oilers, San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Robinson averaged 12.4 points and 8.4 rebounds during his career from 1975-78. He ranks in the top 10 in school history in field-goal percentage and 24th all-time in points.
The Class of 2012 will bring the total number of inductees in the Sports Hall of Fame to 141.
