On Saturday, Jan. 30 2016, the CUA Department of Athletics in collaboration with the Office of Alumni Relations inducted its newest Hall of Fame Class.  The inductees were selected by a committee consisting of CUA alumni, university administrators and athletics department staff.

CUA Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2016


Jeffery Clay Jr. fashioned one of the finest seasons ever for an NCAA receiver in 1997 when he led the nation in receptions (112), yards (1,625), and touchdowns (20). In a 61-21 victory over Division I-AA La Salle, he caught 17 passes for 310 yards and four TDs. A unanimous first-team All-American that year and runner-up for the Melberger Award, the Division III equivalent of the Heisman Trophy, Clay was also recognized with CUA quarterback Kevin Ricca as co-independent players of the year by the Pigskin Club of Washington. Clay also was named to the Associated Press Little All-America first team. His 112 receptions and 20 TDs that season remain atop the CUA record book. He caught a school-best 269 passes to rank number one in program history. His receiving touchdown total (44) is also tops, and his 4,101 yards rank second. Clay's 15.2-yard average per reception ranks sixth. His 266 points is third.


JOHN B. DOUGLAS, B.A. 1995, M.A. 1997

John Douglas was a four-year starting shortstop (1992-1995) for the Cardinals and three-time All-Capital Athletic Conference selection (second team 1993 and first team in 1994-1995). He was a career .348 hitter with 13 home runs, five triples, 32 doubles, 58 stolen bases, 90 RBIs, and 129 runs. In 139 career games, he struck out just 52 times (vs. 85 walks). In 1994, he batted a career-high .395 with four homers, 24 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases. The Toronto Blue Jays selected Douglas in the 31st round of the 1995 Major League draft. He was assigned to Toronto's rookie affiliate in Dunedin, Fla., the Gulf Coast Blue Jays, where he played third base, shortstop, and second base. Douglas was also a four-year starter in basketball, primarily at small forward. He was a three-time basketball All-American for the Cardinals, scoring 30 or more points seven times. He is the sixth all-time leading scorer (1,774 points) in school history. Named CUA Senior Athlete of the Year in 1995-1996, he was the first person in school history to play on two NCAA Tournament teams.  


Tony Gallis was a three-year starting quarterback who was named first-team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference in 1983. He led CUA to three victories over Georgetown, its biggest rival at the time. When Gallis finished his career, he was number one in the Cardinal record book in career completions (361), yards (5,138) and touchdowns (40). His number would have been better had he not missed the final 10 games of his senior year. In 1984, Gallis succeeded on 53.7% of his passes to become the first Cardinal at the Division III level to complete more than half of his pass attempts. His career-high 17 touchdowns stood as a school record until Kevin Ricca tied it in 1994 and broke it two years later. Gallis's career ended in the 1985 season opener against Dickinson – the first game at DuFour Field — when he suffered a knee injury. Prior to his second-quarter injury, he and his brother Ed connected for their final touchdown together. CUA won the game, 29-26.



Cristine (Waterhouse) Kosnik was named 1995 NCAA Woman of the Year for all divisions in Washington, D.C. Kosnik's play in 1994 led the Cardinals to their first Capital Athletic Conference championship in volleyball. Kosnik, a three-time first-team All-CAC honoree from Melbourne, Fla, had one of the best seasons in league history in 1994. She set the CAC season record for aces per game (1.17) and total attacks (1,807), She also established the conference standard for most attacks in a match when she recorded 90 against Goucher on Oct. 5, 1994, She and Bridget Guetle were named to the CAC Silver Anniversary Volleyball Team, and both players had their numbers retired. Kosnik, who also played three years on the women's basketball team, received the highest honor for a CUA female student athlete when she was presented the 1995 Donley Cup. 



Brent Raue is one of just two men in Catholic University swimming history to qualify for three consecutive NCAA championships (1994-1996). In 1995, he turned in a record-setting performance to earn All-American honors. Raue was a three-time first-team All-Capital Athletic Conference performer in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle, and helped CUA win the 1994 and 1995 CAC championships. Including the 100 butterfly (1993) and 200 free (1995), he earned eight first-team All-CAC awards. The league named Raue 1995 men's Swimmer of the Year. In 2014, he was one of six Cardinals recognized on the CAC Silver Anniversary Men's Swimming Team. Raue placed 13th in the 100 free at the 1995 NCAA Division III Men's Swimming and Diving Championships in Oxford, Ohio, to become an All-American. His time of 46.54 seconds is a CUA record. He held the school mark in the 50 free (21.24) from 1996 until 2014. Raue was also part of the Cardinals' 1996 record-setting 400 medley relay team. His school-best time in the 100 fly (51.95) has stood since 1993. Raue and two-time national champion Keats Baugher (1965-1967) are the only two CUA swimmers to qualify for three straight NCAA championships, and Raue is the only one to do it at the Division III level.
