Pastilong, 6 others named to WVU Sports Hall


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Former West Virginia University athletic director Ed Pastilong is among seven people who will be inducted into the university's Sports Hall of Fame this fall.

Current athletic director Oliver Luck announced the Class of 2012 on Saturday.

Others being inducted are soccer standout Katie Barnes, swimmer Dan Cavanaugh, football offensive tackle Ben Dunkerley and defensive back Bo Orlando, and basketball players Lee Patrone and Maurice Robinson.

Induction ceremonies will take place on Sept. 22 prior to WVU's home football game with Maryland.

Pastilong spent more than three decades at WVU, serving as athletic director from 1989 to 2010. He oversaw more than $65 million in facility renovations, including many at Mountaineer Field. Under his watch, the athletics budget grew from $20 million to more than $50 million.
