4 to enter Washington College hall of fame

Quincy Miles Samus, a three-time All-Centennial Conference field hockey player for Washington College, will be inducted into the athletic hall of fame Oct. 19.

CHESTERTOWN — Quincy Miles Samus' all-star career coincided with the best four-year run in the history of Washington's field hockey program, when the Shore ladies went a combined 57-17. She and three others will be inducted into the college's hall of fame Oct. 19.

The other honorees are basketball player Chris Brandt '90, soccer player Justin Daniel '01 and All-America coxswain Anna Germain Scozzafava '03.

Miles, who graduated in 2000, was a star defender on Washington's 1996 and '97 teams that qualified for the NCAA Division III Tournament. The 1997 team that finished 16-3 also had a share of the conference championship.

In voting by the Centennial Conference coaches, Miles was placed on the elite first team in 1997, '98 and '99. She also was a three-time regional All-American (second team). Miles' 22 career defensive saves was a school record when she graduated; now she is third in program history.

Brandt was a member of two NCAA Tournament-qualifying teams, including the 1989-90 squad that placed third in Division III. The 25-6 team of 1989-90 established a school record for wins in a season; Brandt led the team with 20.3 points per game and a total of 110 assists.

He was named to the all-tournament team of the 1990 Division III Final Four after scoring 34 points in Washington's 87-86 victory over Calvin in the consolation game. Brandt's short jumper with 1.3 seconds remaining held up as the game-winning basket as the Shoremen overcame a 17-point deficit in the second half.

Brandt scored 629 points in 1989-90, establishing a school record for scoring in a single season. He finished with 1,272 career points, 15th in program history.

Daniel ranks second at Washington with 123 career points and 50 career goals, and third with 23 career assists. He earned all-region honors twice and All-Centennial Conference honors three times, including first-team recognition in 2000.

His 16 goals and eight assists in 1998 made him only the second Shoreman to total at least 40 points in a season. He helped Washington earn an ECAC Tournament berth in 2000.

Germain was the college's first All-America coxswain, earning second-team honors in 2002 and moving up to the first team the next year.

With Germain as the coxswain of its first varsity eight, Washington ranked as high as second in all of Division III during her junior year and as high as seventh in her senior year. She was the coxswain when Washington defeated national power Ithaca for the first time.
