Four Inducted into Athletic Hall of Fame

BOSTON, Mass. – The Wentworth Institute of Technology Athletic Department welcomed four new members into its Athletic Hall of Fame in a ceremony on Saturday night (October 18) at the Watson Hall Auditorium. This is the 13th class of inductees since the hall of fame began in 2001 brings the total number of inductees to 65.

The four former student-athletes who were honored are Todd Doyle ’09 (basketball), Stan Fedorchuk ’65, ’66 (basketball, baseball), Michael Fisher ’07 (golf), and Rachael Kelley ’05 (soccer).

TODD DOYLE ’09 (Basketball)
The 11th men’s basketball player to be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame, Todd Doyle enjoyed an outstanding career on the hardwood for the Leopards.

As a freshman, Doyle was named the Commonwealth Coast Conference Rookie of the Year after averaging 10.3 points per game to go along with 3.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 27 minutes played per game. He shot 45% from the field and 79% from the free throw line.

Doyle’s sophomore season resulted in the Leopards winning the 2007 CCC Championship and which earned them a berth in the NCAA Tournament for just the second time in program history. The road to the championship was not an easy one as, to accomplish this, Wentworth needed to win three games against higher seeds. Doyle averaged 18.7 points per game during the CCC tournament, which included the game-winning 3-point basket in a 69-68 upset win at Gordon in the semifinals. An All-CCC selection, he averaged 15.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game while shooting 50% from the floor and 46.7% from behind the three-point arc.

An injury-plagued junior season limited Doyle’s action on the court but still earned Doyle All-Conference honors after averaging 14 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 45% from the floor and 81% from the free throw line.

As a senior, Doyle earned CCC Player of the Year honors and was named All-Region by both and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Doyle averaged 20.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 50.5% from the floor, 44.8% from behind the three-point arc and 92.6% (100-108) from the free throw line, which ranked second in the nation.

Having played in 100 games, Doyle ended his career third in points scored (1,504), field goals made (555) and 3-point shooting percentage (42.2%). He ranks second among Wentworth’s leaders in free throw percentage (82.7%) and fifth in total assists (251).

A native of Mystic Conn., Doyle graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Management in 2009 and went on to play a year professionally for the Leicester Warriors in the United Kingdom’s English Basketball League. He scored 42 points in his first professional game and was ultimately named to’s All-British Second Team where he averaged 18.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

A four-year standout who helped the Wentworth Institute of Technology golf team to three consecutive Commonwealth Coast Conference Championships, Michael Fisher becomes the second Leopard golfer to be inducted into the hall of fame.

Fisher’s freshman season saw him average 79.63 strokes per round, which included a season-best 73 in a match against Anna Maria. Fisher helped the Leopards to a fifth place finish at the CCC Championships after shooting a round of 76.

During his sophomore season, Fisher set the program record for best scoring average in a season as he averaged 77.50 strokes per round and helped the Leopards win their first-ever CCC Championship. He shot a career-best 72 in a dual match against Newbury later that season and tied for eighth overall at the New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Championships, earning him All-New England honors. In addition to being the third Leopard golfer to earn All-New England Honors, he was named All-Northeast Region by the National Golf Coaches Association.

Posting four top 10 finishes and an average of 83.63, Fisher helped Wentworth to a repeat CCC Championship with a seventh-place finish. He posted a second-place finish at a quad match at Rhode Island College and a third-place finish in a tri-match at Rhode Island College.

Fisher’s senior campaign saw him average 76 strokes per round over five rounds and helped the Leopards to their third straight CCC crown after he shot a 74, which placed him third in the field. His other top five finish that season came when he finished second in a tri-match at Johnson & Wales.

Playing in 29 rounds over the course of his career, Fisher’s scoring average of 79.52 ranks as the tops in program history and he ended his career finishing in the top 10 at 19 events.

A 2007 graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Electromechanical Engineering, Fisher is a Quality Engineer with the IBM Corporation in his hometown of Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Still an avid golfer, his success has carried over into the tournaments he plays in as he has won numerous local tournaments and he has competed at the state and national level. Mike and his wife, Vanessa, recently welcomed their first child into the world, a son Michael who was born on September 11.

STAN FEDORCHUK ’65, ’66 (Basketball, Baseball)
A two-sport athlete for the Leopards, Stan Fedorchuk was a member of the basketball team for three years – one of which he was co-captain and also played two years on the baseball team and the 12th men's basketball and seventh baseball player to be inducted. When Stan started Wentworth it was a two-year school, however a new program allowed Stan to transfer prior credits to complete another degree program. Consequently, he graduated with two degrees, one from Aeronautical Technology (AT ’65) and another from the Aeronautical & Space Engineering program (ASE ’66).

Fedorchuk played for numerous coaches during his time at Wentworth - Bob Whittimore (baseball), Leonard Cheney, John Kelly, Bill Griffith and Frank Ryan (basketball) and he believes these coaches should also receive recognition and appreciation. These coaches gave of themselves providing leadership beyond the educational environment while also being teachers, which took dedication. Two highlights of Stan’s athletic career stand out. The highlight of Stan’s baseball career was winning the Fifth Annual New England Junior College Baseball Tournament in 1965 with wins over Leicester Junior College and Dean Junior College. While a member of the Leopard basketball team, they had the opportunity to play in the old Boston Garden as a pre-game to the Celtics. Stan remembers being in awe as he stepped out onto that basketball court.

Faced with being drafted (he received his Draft Notice for Vietnam about two weeks before his graduation in June, 1966), Stan enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Because of his Wentworth education, he was able to bypass the specialist training program and was sent directly to duty where he served as a jet engine technician for four years. Stan continued to pursue his athletic endeavors by playing on the varsity basketball and fast pitch softball teams at the U.S Air Force base and was even selected to an Air Force All Star softball team.

After the Air Force, Stan was hired by Pratt & Whitney as a Military Customer Support Jet Engine Engineer where he became a Resident Engineer at Military Customer Facilities providing training and engineering support. Stan believes this position was a direct result of his education at Wentworth and the outstanding reputation of Wentworth for providing dedicated professionals. Stan’s position required moving to numerous locations, including Washington D.C., San Antonio, Texas, and the Netherlands. Even while moving Stan was able to pursue his passion for fast pitch softball. While in the Netherlands, Stan played on the team that won the Dutch National Championship. Stan also coached girls middle school and high school fast pitch softball programs.

Stan retired from Pratt & Whitney as a Discipline Chief and Technical Engineering Lead in December, 2010 after 40 years. Stan continues to work at Pratt & Whitney on a part time basis at their request providing his much needed experience for a special program. Stan also continues to pursue his passion for softball. In 2013 he played on a team that played in the Senior Olympics/National Games in Cleveland, Ohio. Stan still plays on a senior softball team which has won its league championship two of the last three years. A native of West Roxbury, Mass., Stan and his wife, Gloria, of 41 years live in Middletown, Conn. They have two daughters, Dawn and Stacy, and five grandchildren.

A standout defender who played on four of the women’s soccer team’s most successful teams in program history, Rachael Kelley becomes the seventh Wentworth women’s soccer player to be inducted into the hall of fame.

Kelley’s freshman season saw her start 13 of the 16 games in which she played and helped the Leopards to an 11-6-1 record and a berth in the Commonwealth Coast Conference Tournament. The 11 wins at the time established a program record for wins in a season and she helped the team post a 1.29 goals against average while shutting out opponents six times.

As a sophomore, Kelley started five of the 15 games in which she played and was a key member of a Leopard squad that advanced to the semifinals of the CCC Tournament and earned the program’s first-ever berth into the ECAC Tournament. Wentworth shattered the program record for wins, finishing 15-5, and posted a program-best 0.84 goals against average. The Leopards shut out their opposition nine times that season, which, at the time, set a program record.

The 2003 season marked another first for the Wentworth women’s soccer program as the Leopards advanced to the CCC title game for the first time, falling to Endicott, 2-1. Wentworth earned its second straight berth in the ECAC Tournament and finished with a 14-7 record. That season Kelley set a program record by starting in all 21 of the Leopards’ games and helped Wentworth to a 0.96 goals against average while shutting the opposition out nine times.

As a senior, Kelley earned Third Team All-Commonwealth Coast Conference honors after helping the Leopards to an 11-8-1 record, a berth in the CCC semifinals, and the program’s third straight ECAC Tournament berth. Starting in all 20 of the team’s games, she was an integral part of a defensive unit that helped post a 1.40 goals against average and shut out opponents a program-record 10 times. She was also honored for her success in the classroom as the 2005 recipient of the Eugenia Louise Sweeney Senior Scholar-Athlete Award.

For her career, she ranks 12th on Wentworth’s career games played list with 72 and is 14th on the career games started list with 59. During her career, the Leopards posted a 51-26-1 record, held opponents to 1.12 goals allowed per game, and posted 34 shutouts.
