UAA adds to the hall

By Dave Goldman 10:06 PM July 30, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

The club just got bigger.

University of Alaska Anchorage Athletic Director Keith Hackett has announced the addition of three new members to the Seawolf Hall of Fame: Eric Strabel (cross country/skiing), Peter Bullock (men’s basketball) and Tim Molle (hockey). All three will be inducted in a ceremony at the Alaska Airlines Center on Sunday, Oct. 12 at 1 p.m.

“This year we feel like have three inductees who had a really special part in Seawolf history and we’re excited to be able to honor them in October,” said Nate Sagan, UAA athletic media relations director.

From 2000-2004, Strabel excelled with and without snow on the ground. As a cross-country runner he was an integral part of the first Seawolf team to ever qualify for the NCAA Championships. He was an All-GNAC and All-West Region finisher. As a Nordic skier, he was a three-time All-American. Strabel is a graduate of Palmer High School.

Bullock also competed from 2000-2004. On the hard court, he is still the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,902 points. Also local from nearby East High School, Bullock played professionally in Norway.

On the ice, Molle (1981-1984) became one of the hockey program’s greatest defensemen. He earned All-American honors in 1984, leading the team to a 23-6-1 record. A native of Saskatoon, Molle too, is now local. He’s a fireman with the Anchorage Fire Department.
