Below is a look at the 2019 F&M Athletic Hall of Fame Inductees:

Patricia Borosky '91 - Basketball/Track & Field 

Boroski was a record-breaking track & field star and a vital member of the most-accomplished era of F&M women's basketball. A four-year member of the track & field team, Borosky competed in seven events and finished her career with four school records to her name. As a sophomore, she broke the outdoor triple jump mark with a distance of 37'-5", which held until the 2017 season and in 1991, she qualified for the NCAA Championships, securing 10th in the nation for the triple jump.

A versatile guard on the basketball court, Borosky was a member of all three Diplomat teams that qualified for the NCAA Tournament, including the 1987-88 squad that reached the Elite Eight and was inducted to the F&M Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011. Her 115 games played is still an F&M record. Her 250 career assists were second at the time of her graduation and remain ninth all-time, while her 99 steals during the 1987-88 season topped the program's list until 2011.

Jessica Kunkle '05 - Golf

Kunkle is the Diplomats' only four-time All-Centennial Conference (CC) member and one of only seven in the history of the CC. She twice finished as the runner-up at the CC Championships, carding her best score of a 177 (88-89) in 2004. Her 90.88 career stroke average is the best among all F&M women's golfers with a minimum of 25 rounds, and the mark is good for 13th on the CC's list. In 2018, she earned a place on the Centennial Silver Anniversary Team as one of women's golf's most-distinguished student-athletes.  

Kelly Landman '07 - Swimming 

Landman earned four All-America honors in her career, garnering the recognition twice for the 400-yard IM (2005, 2007), and twice for the 200-yard Butterfly (2006, 2007). Her career-best time of 2:04.33 in the 200-yard Butterfly is an F&M record, and remains the sixth-best time in the history of the Centennial, while her career-best time of 4:33.65 in the 400 IM places second in F&M history and fourth in the CC. She remains in the program top-10 in four additional events. Landman won seven Centennial Individual Championships and is one of only two, four-time winners of the 400 IM.   

Sarah Meisenberg '09 - Basketball/Lacrosse 

One of the most accomplished student-athletes in the history of F&M College, Meisenberg holds the unique distinction of being named an All-American in both basketball and lacrosse. One of only seven All-Americans in women's basketball history, Meisenberg earned the honor in 2008 when she was also named the CC Player of the Year. A two-time All-CC First Team selection, Meisenberg is one of only four players in the history of the Conference to record 1,500 points, 400 rebounds, and 250 assists in a career.

In lacrosse, Meisenberg was a three-time All-CC First Team selection and was named a Second Team All-American in 2007, as well as a First Team All-American in 2008 and 2009. Despite injuries that hampered her playing time and numbers in 2009, she was third on the team in assists (30). Meisenberg garnered F&M's distinguished Karvasales Outstanding Senior Female Athlete Award for her career efforts. 

Ted Serro '06 - Baseball

F&M baseball's career leader in wins with 20, Serro wrapped up his illustrious career as a two-time CC Pitcher of the Year honoree and a two-time All-CC First Team member. Serro holds the honor of being the only Diplomat named a CoSIDA Academic All-American when he garnered a spot on the Second Team in 2006. He helped lead F&M to back-to-back CC Championships in 2005 and 2006, compiling a career ERA of 2.07 (5th all-time), tossing 11 complete games (4th all-time), and striking out 210 batters (2nd all-time). Serro was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 40th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, becoming only the second F&M player in the recorded history of the College to be drafted by a Major League club. Serro competed in the minor leagues from 2006-09.

2009 Women's Lacrosse Team 

Trailing Salisbury by one with 62 seconds to play in the 2009 NCAA Championship game, Cat Serpe '12 raced down the field and knotted the game at 10-10 to force overtime.
