Girls Academy set to name inaugural Hall of Fame class

Albany Academy for Girls will recognize five talented individuals who have gone on to great success in college and beyond at the Inaugural AAG Alumnae Association Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Breakfast this Sat., Oct. 2 at 8:30 a.m. in the AAG Lower School Gym (located at 140 Academy Road in Albany).

The inaugural Hall of Fame class includes Ruth Miner (Class of 1911), Marion Mooers Tietz Lamar (Class of 1947), Jennifer Riitano Levy (Class of 1993), Carrie Bolduc (Class of 1995), Ashley Gersuk (Class of 2001) and the 1995 varsity lacrosse team.

Ruth Miner is best known for her role as the first President of the AAG Athletic Association upon its creation in 1909. She played hockey, tennis and basketball during her time at AAG and was a strong competitor. Ms. Miner earned the nickname “Sport Miner” at Wellesley College and was one of just six women to graduate from Albany Law School in 1919.

Marion Mooers Tietz Lamar was a standout athlete at AAG and head of the Athletic Association during her senior year. She went on to excel in lacrosse and field hockey at Sargent College of Boston University – selected for the U.S. Women’s Lacrosse Team and the Northeast Field Hockey Team. Ms. Lamar taught physical education for 20 years in area schools and officiated basketball for 29 years and field hockey for 48 years. When she retired from officiating at the age of 68, she received special recognition from the U.S. Field Hockey Association.

Jennifer Riitano Levy excelled at soccer, basketball and lacrosse during her time at AAG and served as a successful coach of the AAG Varsity Lacrosse Team. After attending Babson College and playing on the Women’s Lacrosse Team, she took Team deBeer (part of J. deBeer and Son, Inc.) from an unknown name in the women’s lacrosse industry to being the No. 1 provider of women’s lacrosse gear in the country. Ms. Levy currently serves as Vice President of the Lacrosse Industry Council, is the Director of Women’s Sports at Brine and has been selected to serve on the U.S. Lacrosse’s Board Development Committee.

A three-sport athlete at AAG in soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse, Ashley Gersuk was recognized as a four-time Central Hudson Valley League All-Star; she also led the Varsity Lacrosse Team to the New York State Championship in 2001. Ms. Gersuk continued her passion for lacrosse at Northwestern University – helping to pioneer the lacrosse program from inception to a No. 1 national ranking; during her senior year, Northwestern won the first of five consecutive national championships. Ms. Gersuk was chosen to represent her team at the White House where she met then President George Bush, and presented the team’s gift to him during the Rose Garden “Champion’s Day” ceremony. She is currently the Partner & CEO of WomensLax.com LLC, a sports marketing and event management company.

Carrie Bolduc was captain of the AAG Varsity Soccer Team that finished third in the Central Hudson Valley League during her senior and was a member of the Section II, Class D runner-up team along with numerous other accolades. In addition, Ms. Bolduc served as captain of the 1995 Varsity Lacrosse Team and was one of two selected from the region as a first team All American. She went on to play lacrosse in Division I programs at Temple University (competing in the NCAA Final Four) and Syracuse University (winning the ECAC Championship). She later served as a successful lacrosse coach at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and Farmingdale State College – recognized as Coach of the Year in 2009.


The 1995 AAG varsity lacrosse team had an outstanding season, finishing with a 15-2 record and advancing to the state finals – a first for AAG lacrosse.
