Binghamton University’s 2013 Athletic Hall of Fame class includes an NCAA champion, two All-Americans and a Major League Baseball player. The latest additions bring the total to 91.

Scott Diamond (baseball, 2005–07) made history by becoming the first Binghamton University baseball player to earn a spot in the starting rotation of a Major League team — the Minnesota Twins — last spring. He was named the organization’s Pitcher of the Year and Most Outstanding Rookie in 2012. On campus, Diamond was a three-year starter and America East Rookie of the Year in 2005.

David Holmes (swimming, 2004–07) earned 18 America East titles and became the first male swimmer in conference history to advance to the NCAA Championship. A Binghamton Athlete of the Year, he was the Most Outstanding Performer at the 2006 and 2007 ECAC Championships and compiled 15 ECAC gold medals in a record-breaking career.

Glenn McIver (basketball, 1973–78) scored 1,101 career points and ranks fourth in program history with 699 career rebounds. As a senior, he averaged 19 points. After graduation, he became one of the Binghamton area’s most successful coaches. His Seton Catholic Central high school boys’ team captured a sectional title and made two finals appearances.

Graham Munro (soccer, 2002–05) was the school’s first Division I soccer All-American. He was a three-time conference Defender of the Year and led the 2003 Bearcats to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Munro was Binghamton’s Athlete of the Year in 2004 and was selected by Baltimore in the third round of the 2006 Major Indoor Soccer League draft.

Rory Quiller (track & field, 2003–08) is the most decorated athlete in the school’s 12-year Division I history. He captured the NCAA indoor pole vault title in 2008 and was a three-time All-American and a five-time NCAA qualifier. Quiller won five America East titles and the national championship in 2008. He competed in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic trials.

Leah Truncale (basketball, 1998–03) helped the Bearcats move successfully from NCAA Division II to Division I. She tallied 1,341 career points and set school records of 978 rebounds and 236 blocks. During her career, Binghamton earned an NCAA tournament berth, two ECAC championships and an America East regular-season runner-up showing in the team’s Division I debut.
