Averett University's Cougar Club Hall of Fame inducted two new members into its ranks Saturday, Oct. 2 during the University's Homecoming and Family Weekend. Amy Cross and DeMarcus Morrison joined the nine other Hall of Fame members.
Cross played three sports - tennis, cross country and basketball - while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average while she was a student at Averett. A former recipient of the Don Scalf Award, which is presented to the top student-athlete in the conference, Cross is now the assistant Commonwealth attorney for the city of Portsmouth. She graduated from the University in 1997.
Morrison, who played for the Cougars' men's basketball team from 1996-2000, set numerous records on the court and ranks as the program's all-time leading scorer. A Danville resident, he now works for Family Preservation Services, where he works in the schools as a therapeutic day specialist.
The other Cougar Club Hall of Fame members include: Danny Miller, Brenda LaFlamme, Garry Pritchett, James "Boo" Braxton, Norma Roady, Dr. Rebecca Clark, John "Frenchy" Vigouroux, Vesa Hiltunen and Pekka Kaartinen. Those inducted into the Hall of Fame include alumni, faculty and staff who have made a significant impact on athletics.
