Cambridge Springs set to induct 2013 Sports Hall of Fame class

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS — One of the most decorated female athletes in school history is among those set to be inducted into the Cambridge Springs Sports Hall of Fame this week.

Cheryl C. Ringer, the first female athlete from Cambridge to score 1,000 career points in basketball using a men’s basketball and no 3-point line, the 1972-73 boys basketball team, Robert Engelbert, Dan Green and Steve Musiek comprise the 2013 Hall of Fame class.

The Hall of Fame game is Friday when Cambridge Springs plays host to Youngsville. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. The Hall of Fame luncheon is Saturday.

Ringer recorded 12 varsity letters in three sports during her career at Cambridge Springs High School. She was the French Creek Valley Conference’s leading scorer and FCVC most valuable player her junior and senior years in basketball. She was first team all-conference in volleyball and softball all four years.

Ringer graduated in 1983 and went on to receive a full scholarship and played volleyball, basketball and softball for Thiel College.

She was first team Atlantic Keystone Conference for volleyball and softball during her junior and senior years.

Ringer finished her bachelor’s degree in pre-med, continued her education earning a doctoral degree in Healthcare Administration and now serves the Navy Medical Service Corps as an Active Duty full Commander and Healthcare Administrator.

She completed a 14-month deployment to Afghanistan (2010-11), running the largest trauma hospital in the world.

The 1972-73 Cambridge Springs boys basketball team was the last in a long line of Tom Hobson coached Blue Devil teams that dominated Crawford County over two decades. The team — led by Rick Christie, Tom Gage and Rick Mook — featured a fast tempo, up and down system and a match-up zone defense that stymied most opponents.  

It won the Crawford County Class “C” championship and earned itself a spot in the state tournament where it beat Bucktail 64-46 in the opening round.

n Green accumulated several awards in football, basketball, baseball and volleyball and was the all-time leading rusher in FCVC history with 3,415 yards. Lakeview’s Deke Ison broke that mark a year later, finishing with 4,008.

Green was also the football team’s first underclassmen to be named a team captain. He served as the captain his junior and senior years.

Musiek served five years as a head coach and eight years an assistant football coach at Cambridge Springs High School. In 1961, he guided the Blue Devils to a 6-1-1 season, one of the best in Cambridge Springs history.

Musiek also introduced progressive weight training to Crawford County and Cambridge Springs athletes in 1974. This commitment to weight lifting began when he was in high school where he was a two-way, three-year starter at guard and linebacker, and was named Erie County All-Star. Musiek is the recipient of 75 awards for his outstanding achievements in bodybuilding and powerlifting and has been featured in national magazines and major press releases.

 Engelbert was “the quintessential student-athletes’ principal,” as stated in a press release.

Engelbert became principal of Cambridge Springs High School in 1986. He was at the same time a devoted fan and a critical part of the educational process and could be found at nearly every Cambridge Springs athletic event regardless of the season.

Cambridge Springs captured the FCVC all-sports trophy in the 1990s. In 1997, Cambridge Springs dominated northwestern Pennsylvania small school athletics, winning the football, boys volleyball and baseball District 10 championships, along with the boys and girls basketball teams and the football team making deep state playoff runs. The wrestling team posted is most productive season in 30 years, and the softball team was one win from a District 10 title.

Englebert will be inducted posthumously. He passed away in 1997.
