The Hintlian Family Golf Performance Center opened in September as part of the Babson Recreation and Athletics Complex facility enhancements project. The center features a Foresight golf simulator that tracks data while players are on a virtual course or on the range. A putting and chipping area allows golf team members to work on their short game year-round.
Babson President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA ’92, PhD honored Jon Anderson ’75, P’04 ’08 ’13 ’13 (right), head men’s soccer coach and senior associate athletics director, with the Joseph R. Weintraub Alumni Award for Distinguished Faculty/Administrator Service. “I am deeply humbled by this award and grateful for those involved in nominating me,” said Anderson, who received the honor during the leadership awards brunch at Back to Babson.
The athletics department honored its five national championship squads as the first teams inducted into the Babson Athletics Hall of Fame. The historic celebration during Back to Babson brought together the 1975, 1979, and 1980 men’s soccer teams, the 1984 men’s ice hockey squad, and the 2017 men’s basketball team as part of the 17th induction class. The five squads joined 71 individuals who have been inducted since the Hall of Fame’s inception in 1991. Pictured left to right, are Dan Roche P’20, and hockey alumni Ed Gavin ’84 and Paul Donato ’84.
