Wellesley College Athletics inducted the four newest members of the Wellesley Athletics Hall of Fame on October 15. One was our classmate Nadine Netter Levy.

Nadine Netter Levy '66 has enjoyed a competitive tennis career that has spanned four decades and includes accolades at the collegiate and international levels. The Eastern Women's College Tournament champion in 1962, she also earned collegiate titles at the Eastern Intercollegiate Champion and New England Intercollegiate Women's Tennis Championship in 1965. Levy advanced to the second round of Wimbledon in 1968 and also played at the U.S. Open and the French, German Italian Championships. At the 1997 Maccabiah Games, she earned a gold medal in singles and a gold and silver medal in doubles, capturing titles in the ladies over 40 and over 50 divisions. She continues to play the game today.

Wellesley Athletics Hall of Fame members exemplify the College's longstanding conviction that varsity athletics play an important role in the development of leanadinenetter_and_officersdership abilities, the cultivation of character and discipline, and the resolve to strive for excellence in every aspect of life. In celebration of the spirit and achievement of Wellesley scholar-athletes and those who have inspired and supported them, alumnae athletes Nadine Netter Levy '66, Barbara Morry Fraumeni '72, and Jessica Gosnell '90 will join former coach and program contributor Ann S. Batchelder as the members of the Class of 2016.
