St. Lawrence News


Riding Coach Mary Drueding has been named to the second annual Athletic Hall of Fame class at her alma mater, Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire. Induction for the five new members of the hall will take place October 7, 2007.

The Colby-Sawyer Athletic Hall of fame was established in 2006 to celebrate the accomplishments of Colby-Sawyer athletes, coaches, teams and supporters who have enhanced and reinforced the college's commitment to excellence.

Drueding, a 1982 graduate, "helped put the Colby-Sawyer equestrian program on the map," according to the college, serving as both the team MVP and captain, and then later as assistant and head coach for the program. As a student at Colby-Sawyer, Drueding spent four seasons with the equestrian team, serving as the team's most valuable rider for her first two seasons and as team captain for two seasons. She returned to the team as an assistant coach in 1988 and was a part of the first-ever team to qualify for the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) competition and was an assistant during the National Championship team of 1989.

In 1991, Drueding took over as head coach, and again led the Chargers to their second National Championship in 1994 and also led the team to top-10 finishes on two separate occasions. She became the equestrian coach at St. Lawrence in 1995. At the University, Drueding has coached nine individual national champions, three zone teams and numerous regional and zone individual winners.
