Plattsburgh State announces new Hall of Fame members

(Continued)

Sundberg was also a member of the 2001 national championship team and one of the best to step between the pipes for the Cardinals. During his time at Plattsburgh, he was a two-time All-American and a four-time All-SUNYAC honoree. Sundberg was also named to the SUNYAC All-Tournament Team in 2001 and 2002. He was selected as the SUNYAC Rookie of the Year in 1999, the Plattsburgh State Male Athlete of the Year in 2001 and as a member of the Cardinal All-Decade Team (1995 to 2004). He still holds the single-season records for save percentage (.946), shutouts (5), goals-against average (1.41) and victories (28).

In addition to his on-ice accomplishments, Sundberg excelled in the classroom. He was named an Academic All-American and was the recipient of the Dr. Richard D. Semmler Scholar-Athlete Award and the Dr. Sam Molnar SUNYAC Men’s Scholar-Athlete Award following his senior year in 2002.

The 1975-76 Plattsburgh State men’s basketball team was the first team in school history to advance to the NCAA final four in any sport. The Cardinals captured the SUNYAC regular-season championship with a 9-1 record before winning the NCAA Division III Eastern Regional. Ronnie Wright led the team in scoring with 20.2 points per game, while Plattsburgh State Athletic Hall of Fame member Larry Parker scored 16.7 points per game and grabbed 17.7 rebounds per contest.
