The Class of 2007 Hall of Honor (1/27/07)
Sarah Hendricks Rosenkranz, Holman "Chip" Pettibone, Ted Noakes, Jeremy Warren
Chip Pettibone made an indelible mark in the water at Beloit College. When he made the decision to attend Beloit, not only was he traveling 2,000 miles from his San Francisco Bay-area home and continuing a family tradition, he was about to become one of the most prolific swimmers in Beloit College history. A three-time Most Valuable Swimmer and the “high-point” man for each of those seasons, Pettibone graduated in 1984 with six Buccaneer Swimming records in his possession as well as being a member of three record-setting relay teams. To underline his accomplishments nearly 25 years later, the record he set in the 200 Free in 1982 still stands, as do the all-time marks for the three relay events he swam in, leading off in the 400 and 800 Free Relay and swimming the third leg in the 400 Medley Relay. He was named the Jansen Award recipient following his junior year and a Beloit College Blanket winner at the end of his senior year. The recognition he received as a third-generation “legacy” at commencement ceremonies on a sunny May day in 1984 topped off an exciting four years. And the long journey to Beloit College that began on a “whim” back in 1980 has only led to bigger and better things since. A graduate of the prestigious Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, Pettibone resides in Sebastopol, California, with his wife Margie and their four children. He is President of Product Management at Safari Books Online.
Whether rattling teeth on the football field or caring for those same teeth behind a dentist’s chair, Ted Noakes saw the two tasks as very similar – a goal is set and you work hard to achieve that goal. Noakes did, and continues to do, just that. Noakes helped lead the Buccaneers to back-to-back Midwest Conference North Division Championships in 1991 and 1992 while being named First-Team All-MWC in both seasons. He was the conference Defensive Most Valuable Player following his senior campaign and topped that when he was named to the Champion U.S.A Division III All-American Second Team. During his senior season, Noakes set team records for solo tackles (103) and defensive team points (186). Those two records continue to be the benchmark for Buccaneer defensive players. His two-year dominance at his position didn’t stop with the All-American and Midwest Conference honors. He was also named the Beloit College Hitter of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year in both 1991 and 1992. His career was capped in the end-of-year Athletic Awards Banquet in 1993, when he won the Dawson Award for outstanding student-athlete as well as being a Beloit College Blanket recipient. He resides in his hometown of Rockford, Illinois, where he is a D.M.D. at Camelot Endodontics, Ltd.
Coming out of Southwestern High School in Hazel Green, Wisconsin, Sarah Hendricks Rosenkranz was an independent person who always set high goals for herself and strived to achieve them. When she graduated from Beloit College four years later, the accomplishments she had achieved on the basketball court had given others goals to shoot for, and they are still shooting for them today. A four-year All-Midwest Conference player, the first in Beloit history, Hendricks Rosenkranz was the ultimate in low-post players for the Buccaneers. A scorer, rebounder and shot blocker, she finished her career as the #2 scorer in history with 1,303 points; the #2 rebounder with 750, and the #1 shot-blocker with 235. Along the way she helped lead the Bucs to the 1995 Midwest Conference Championship and NCAA Division III Tournament appearances in 1995 and 1996. After he senior season, she earned All-Region recognition, MWC Co-Player of the Year, team Most Valuable Player, and team Offensive Player of the Year for the third straight season. She also earned the Jansen Award after he junior season and was a Beloit College Blanket recipient. She resides in Rowayton, Connecticut with her husband Terry and two-year old twin sons. She works at Birinyi Associates, Inc., a money management and research firm in Westport, Connecticut.
When Jeremy Warren received the nickname “Comeback Kid” for his exploits as the Beloit College quarterback for three seasons, little did he know he would step in to the football coaching ranks and continue to use the moniker. A two-time All-Midwest Conference player for the Buccaneers, Warren finished his career in the top five in every passing category. He still sits in the top five in four of those categories and also holds the single-season record for passing yardage (1,980) and touchdowns (19), set in 1994. But records aside, it’s his clutch performances during that 1994 season that earned him his nickname, performances that are still talked about today. During that season, one in which the Buccaneers would earn the North Division Championship, he helped orchestrate four come-from-behind victories, all with deficits of at least 11 points. In addition to his two All-MWC honors, he was the team Captain and Offensive Player of the Year in 1994 and 1995 and the team Most Valuable Player in 1994. He was also a Beloit College Blanket recipient at the 1996 Athletic Awards Banquet. As was said earlier, his nickname continues to follow him as the Head Football Coach at Rock Valley College, where he has took over a struggling program in 2002 and has led the team to back-to-back playoff appearances the last two seasons, earning conference Coach of the Year honors in 2005. Warren resides in Rockford with his wife Tiffany and two children.
