Salem Hall of Fame to induct 5 new members

One of the top three-sport athletes in recent area history, a near perfect student-athlete and a linebacker who’d “take your head off and break your ribs on the way by” are among the five new inductees into the Salem-Woodbury Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony will be Friday evening at the Atkinson Country Club. For more information contact Athletic Director Dave Rozumek at 603-893-7089 or drozumek@sau57.org.

The hall of fame biographies are based on information supplied by the school and Eagle-Tribune archives.

Erin (Reusch) Bickford

Class of 2004

The 5-1 Reusch was a captain, three-year starter and four-year letterman in both field hockey and softball, winning two Class L titles in the former and three in the latter. She was an Eagle-Tribune All-Star and N.H. co-Division 1 MVP in field hockey as a senior. Reusch also competed in winter track.

She attended Maine on a field hockey scholarship and won numerous athletic honors, including being named second-team All-America East Conference. A co-captain who started three years for the Black Bears, Reusch earned near perfect grades (3.98 GPA) in Orono.

Joe Fitzsimons

Class of 2000

As a senior, the 160-pounder went 45-2, won the Class L, Meet of Champions and New England titles, and led the Blue Devils to an unbeaten dual-meet season.

He was named Salem’s top winter athlete and won the school’s student-scholar award. He also was a winner at Meet of Champions as a junior to help Salem to the overall title. He went 132-33 in his Salem career.

At Roger Williams, the three-time captain set the school record with 139 career wins (139-30 record) en route to earning All-New England honors all four years. The two-time Academic All-American is a Marine Corps reservist and served in Iraq.
