16th Saint Joseph’s College Athletics Hall of Fame Class Announced

STANDISH, Maine – The 16th Saint Joseph’s College Athletics Hall of Fame class has been announced. Charlie Warren ’88, Derek McIntosh ’05, Father John Tokaz and the 1991-92 women’s basketball team will be inducted into the Hall of Fame with a ceremony on Saturday, September 15th.

Charlie Warren ’88, who hails from Hempstead, N.Y., is remembered as one of the best ‘clutch players’ in Saint Joseph’s men’s basketball history. The two-time All-Conference honoree enters the hall ranked third in team history in games (118), fifth in free throws made (387), eighth in field goal percentage (.552), 12th in rebounds (637), and 17th in points (1,287).

Although his career stat line is impressive, Warren is best remembered for converting a three-point play with two seconds left to lift the Monks past Castleton, 75-74, in the 1987 District 5 Championship, a win that launched Saint Joseph’s into the NAIA National Tournament for the first time. In a first round matchup versus #3 Biola, Warren scored 14 points with seven rebounds in a huge upset victory, the College’s first on the national stage.

Derek McIntosh ’05, originally from Auburn, Maine, was an outstanding catcher for the Monks’ baseball team for three seasons. In 116 career games, McIntosh hit .368 (136-370) with 99 runs, 16 doubles, 17 home runs, 95 RBI and 10 stolen bases and, at the time of his induction, ranks fifth in career on-base percentage (.473) and eighth in batting average.

As a senior, McIntosh enjoyed one of the finest offensive seasons in SJC baseball history when he hit .453 (58-128) with 47 runs, six doubles, 10 home runs, and 41 RBI in helping lead the Monks to the 2005 North Atlantic Conference Championship. That year, he ranked ninth in the country in batting average and earned Conference Co-Player of the Year, First Team NEIBA All-New England, and First Team All-Conference honors and started in the NEIBA Senior All-Star Game at Fenway Park.

Father John Tokaz, OFM, Cap. came to Saint Joseph’s in September of 1997 and quickly became entrenched in SJC Athletics, offering pre-game prayers and being present on the bench for all of the Monks’ teams. As an honorary member of the baseball team, Father John played a major role in changing the culture and image of the program and established a series of team retreats. Many of the tenets Father John helped implement within the team’s culture remain to this date and have been important elements in the sustained success of the program.

A native of Walpole, Massachusetts, Tokaz left Saint Joseph’s in 2007 and served as the pastor of St. James the Apostle Parish in Trumansburg, N.Y. until 2014, when he was asked by his provincial superiors to assist young friars at the Capuchin house of formation in Boston.

Led by Head Coach Mike McDevitt ’83, the 1991-92 women’s basketball team went 23-8 (.742) overall, won the Western Maine Athletic Conference Championship, and advanced to the NAIA National Tournament, where the Monks recorded the first NAIA tourney win – a 94-78 victory over Concordia (Neb.) – in program history. The victory was also the first on the national stage for any New England NAIA institution, in any sport.

When the season commenced, the 1991-92 team had established new program records for games, field goals attempted (2,340), three-pointers made (90) and attempted (316), and free throws attempted (744). The team featured six players - Jill Bourget ‘94, Sharon Rines ‘94, Sheri McCarthy ‘93, Danielle Bouchard ‘95, Neile Joler ‘95, and Karen Rogers ‘95 - that were later inducted into the SJC Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame evening begins at 5:00 PM with a ‘plaque-revealing’ reception and is followed by the induction ceremony. The cost to attend is $30 for adults and $10 for children under the age of 12. As always, all current members of The Hall of Fame receive one free admission into this and all future Hall of Fame ceremonies.

More event details, including registration information, will be forthcoming.

With the addition of the 2017 honorees, the list of accomplished athletes, teams, coaches, administrators and philanthropists inducted in the SJC Athletics Hall of Fame grows to 89. The complete list of inductees can be found on the Saint Joseph’s College athletics website, ... f_announce
