Bona to add four to Hall

Mike Bennett, Suzie Dailer, Becky (Okoniewski) Sapio and David Vanterpool will be inducted into the St. Bonaventure Athletics Hall of Fame in a ceremony at 11 a.m. Jan. 14 in the Robert Jones Trustees Room in Doyle Hall.

Dailer (Class of 1995) and Vanterpool ('95) played basketball while Sapio ('94) was a swimmer and Bennett ('95) a baseball player.

The ceremony is free and open to the public.

Dailer holds program records for three-pointers, leading the nation as a sophomore with 99 and the Atlantic 10 in points per game (19.4) and assists (6.0). She ranks fifth in program history with 1,422 points and 449 assists, seventh in steals (178) and 14th in rebounding (466). She was a three-time all-conference selection.

Vanterpool averaged 17.5 points per game as a senior in helping Bona earn an NIT berth for its first tournament appearance since 1983. Vanterpool's 1,474 points rank 14th all time at Bona. He played professionally, including stints in the NBA with Washington and New Jersey.

Sapio (Sacred Heart) still holds program records in the 200 and 400 medley relays as she set eight school records during a career in which she won nine events at both the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship and the Atlantic 10 Championship.

Bennett is the only baseball player to earn first-team Atlantic 10 honors three times, 1993 to '95, and his .365 career average is a program record.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: Daemen's Allison Depp (Lockport) earned American Mideast Conference Player of the Week after making 17 of 24 shots en route to a career-high 38-point performance in a 95-77 win over Notre Dame (Ohio). She also had 12 rebounds.
