Six Inducted Into Athletic Hall of Fame

Three basketball standouts, a top sprinter, a four-time tennis All- American and the OC golfer with the most career wins were inducted into the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame in February.

Bruno Buccolo (08 - men’s golf), Mike Gipson (66 - men’s basketball and baseball), Gabriela Lancman (01 - women’s tennis), Jarred Merrill (10 - men’s basketball), Sarah Reese (03 - women’s basketball) and Damon Sims (96 - men’s track) received OC athletics’ highest honor during a banquet attended by more than 500 people. Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was the keynote speaker at the event.

With their induction, the OC Athletic Hall of Fame now has 47 members.

“Bruno, Mike, Gabriela, Jarred, Sarah and Damon represent the best of OC athletics,” OC Athletic Director Curtis Janz (86) said. “They were stars in their respective sports and brought honor to themselves, their teams and their university. We are proud of what each of them accomplished during their time at Oklahoma Christian.”
