MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The University of Minnesota announced Wednesday night it will induct 10 former and current Gophers to the school’s “M” Hall of Fame.

The ceremony will take place in the DQ Club Room at TCF Bank Stadium at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24. A social hour will take place before the ceremony.

This year’s inductees include Jon Andresen (baseball), Jim Carter (football), Natalie Darwitz (women’s hockey), Rick Naumoff (men’s tennis), Charlie Sanders (football), Krissy Wendell Pohl (women’s hockey) Gary Wilson (women’s cross country and track and field), Loyd La Mois (men’s track) Louis Lick (men’s golf) and Larry Ross (men’s hockey).

La Mois, Rick and Ross will be inducted to the Hall of Fame’s Pioneer Division, which honors those who attended the University of Minnesota before 1950.

The “M” club represents letter-winners from Gophers athletic teams. To be inducted into the “M” Club Hall of Fame, there must have been significant accomplishments by a former student-athlete, achievements by a former coach or administrator, significant contributions of time, talent or resources to the Gophers athletic department by somebody other than an athlete, coach or administrator and have a significant professional achievement by a former Gopher student-athlete.

Athletes are eligible for selection five years after their athletic eligibility has expired. Former coaches and staff must have served the athletic department for at least five years to be eligible.
