The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Athletic Hall of Fame was created in 2016 with the inaugural class being inducted in February of 2017. The SMWC Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes and honors those individuals who have made exceptional contributions during their career to the achievements and prestige of SMWC athletics, and who have continued to demonstrate in their lives the values imparted by intercollegiate athletics. The SMWC Hall of Fame is on display in the Jeanne Knoerle Sports and Recreation. Thanks to donors Susan Decker and Vicki Kosowsky those enshrined into the SMWC Hall of Fame are on display for all to see. Decker's and Kosowsky's dedication and vision helped to establish the hall of fame which has been done in memory of their parents Claude & Patty Decker and Nick & Evelyn Kosowsky.
