Mariners Athletics Hall of Fame Room
The Mariners Athletics Hall of Fame room, made possible by the generosity of the Class of 1986, houses the William J. Mottola Mariners Athletics Hall of Fame.
In addition to the standard Hall of Fame plaques, the Hall of Fame Room hosts a browser-based version of the Hall on a 42-inch monitor. The 1,000-square foot space is a multi-purpose room available for an assortment of uses benefitting MMA student-athletes and staff. The interactive display, along with a ceiling mounted projection unit and conference table, make it an ideal meeting place for staff and teams, and a quiet study area during the day.
The custom leather sofas adorned with the Mariners logo make it a comfortable lounge area for student-athletes.
“In looking at the overall student-athlete experience at Maine Maritime Academy, it became clear that we needed a space like this,” said Director of Athletics, Eric Sabean. “The room is a very comfortable and functional space, but is also an outstanding reminder of the rich tradition that is Mariner athletics.”
Reminders of the tradition include a 24’-8’ mural representing each of the Academy’s 12 sports, and a 16’ by 8’ trophy case.
“We are very proud and honored to have worked with such a strong class on this project,” said Athletics Development Coordinator, Craig Dagan. “Shawn Longfellow’s leadership efforts in getting his classmates to invest their resources towards the project has established a benchmark for class gifts for years to come."
