TERRE HAUTE  – Humbled and honored were the keywords of the night along with praise for coaches and teammates as Indiana State graduates Melanie Boeglin, Nate Green, Michael Menser, and Matt Renn were inducted into the 21st Class of the Indiana State Athletics Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was sponsored by Old National Bank.

The four will also be featured in the Indiana State Homecoming parade Saturday morning in downtown Terre Haute and will be introduced during halftime ceremonies at the Indiana State-Missouri State football game which kicks off at 3 p.m. (ET).

Boeglin was the first induction of the evening with the former Sycamore and the first to say how blessed she was to be going into the Hall of Fame with three great basketball players who are also great individuals.

Green, Menser, and Renn were returned the compliment to Boeglin and each credited her with being the best player of the class.

Menser and Renn echoed Green’s recognition of the support they received while playing together from coaches, teammates, and family.

“I could not have been more blessed than to play for a man like Coach Waltman,” Menser said.

“We could not have had a more unbelievable support group around us,” Renn said.

Many stories were told by the three men’s basketball players and each said that Royce Waltman was a big influence in their becoming the best players they could be.

Menser and Renn were among the first recruiting class of  Coach Waltman.

“His style fit me to a tee,” Renn said. “His passion for competition and his knowledge of the game just took me to another level.”

Indiana State had four straight winning seasons during Menser and Rennís playing career but it was the two conference championships and the two straight NCAA appearances that each remember the most.
