Golf Programs Big Part of 2021 YSU Athletics Hall of Fame Class – Youngstown State Athletics

The YSU Athletics Department is proud to announce a six-member 2021 Hall of Fame Class. The group will be honored on Saturday, Jan. 29.

The 2021 honorees include former Women’s Golf Coach Roseann Schwartz, women’s golfers Samantha Formeck and Katie Rogner, men’s golfer Ryan Stocke, track and field standout Alisha Anthony and baseball player John Koehnlein.

Schwartz was the first coach in the history of the women’s golf program helping create the team in 1996. She served as the Penguins’ head coach until 2013 after guiding the Penguins to Horizon League Championships in 2003 and 2009. YSU also had six second-place finishes and five third-place finishes in the Horizon League and Mid-Continent Conference under Schwartz’s guidance. Only twice from 1998 through 2013 did the Penguins fail to finish in the top three at the league meet.

Formeck and Rogner helped set the standard for the women’s golf program during their careers. Both won Horizon League Championships and were named YSU Female Athletes of the Year.

Formeck won the league meet in 2009, finished second in 2011 and was third in 2010. She was named the Horizon League’s Golfer of the Year in 2009 and 2010. In her three years, she claimed six tournament titles overall. She was a model of consistency throughout her career. In 28 career tournaments, she won six times, placed second on five occasions and had 23 top 10 finishes. In 63 rounds played, she set the school record averaging 78.3 strokes per 18 holes. 

Rogner won the Horizon League title in 2008, was fourth in 2011 and fifth in 2010. As a freshman in 2008 she was named the HL’s Golfer and Newcomer of the Year. In 87 rounds played, she averaged 79.4 per round, which was the second-best total in school history upon the conclusion of her career. The 87 career rounds were also a school mark at the time. She had five tournament victories while at YSU.

Stocke is the only men’s golfer to win a Horizon League title placing first at the event in April 2010. He is the school record holder for most rounds played (128) and still ranks second for career average (74.8 strokes per round). He was a two-time first-team all-league selection during his career.

Anthony was a two-time NCAA East Regional qualifier in the long jump (2010 and 2011). She won three straight Horizon League Indoor long jump crowns from 2007-09. At the outdoor meet, she won the triple jump in 2008 and 2009 and took home the long jump title in 2011. She was named the Outstanding Field Performer at the 2009 Horizon League Indoor Championships.

Koehnlein was one of the top producing hitters in the baseball program’s history. He still ranks third in school history with a .376 batting average with 245 career hits. His hit total ranks fifth in program history. He is also seventh in runs scored with 130. Koehnlein was a All-Horizon League first-team selection in 2007 and was named to the second team in 2006. In 2007, he had a school-record .434 batting average with school bests 108 hits in 249 at bats.
