Kristina Goos (Women's Basketball, 1995-99)
Goos holds several career and single-game records for the Puget Sound women's basketball program. Her 41 points against Central Washington during the 1995-96 season remains a Logger record. Goos' 1,623 career points ranks third all-time, and her 15.9 points per game ranks second. Her 85.5 free-throw percentage is still the best in Logger history (min. 200 attempts), and she ranks third with 178 made 3-pointers. Goos was the Northwest Conference Player of the Year for the 1996-97 season, and she was named to the NAIA All-American Third Team that same year.

Hanson announced his retirement following the 2015 season, in which the Loggers went undefeated and captured their 14th-consecutive Northwest Conference title. He posted a 303-74-36 overall record (.777) at the helm of the Loggers. Hanson's Loggers posted a 16-10-6 record in the NCAA Tournament, and Puget Sound advanced to the national championship game in 2004. A 12-time NWC Coach of the Year and three-time West Region Coach of the Year, Hanson guided 16 All-Americans, 73 All-Region selections, 72 All-NWC First Team honorees, and 17 NWC Players of the Year.

Howlett was the NAIA Women's Cross Country National Champion in 1989. She's a four-time cross country All-American, and she earned track & field All-American honors in the marathon, 10,000-m run, and 5,000-m run.

Jack McGee (Baseball Head Coach – 1965 – 1978)
McGee turned the Puget Sound baseball program into one of the dominant programs across all divisions in the region. He was named the Topps Coach of the Year after the Loggers finished the 1969 season ranked No. 4 in NCAA D-II. His Logger teams didn't just keep pace with D-I opponents. In 1972, the Loggers went 4-0 against Washington while outscoring the Huskies, 23-2. Several of McGee's student-athletes were drafted by MLB teams. McGee posted a career record of 342-152 (.692) with Puget Sound.
The Puget Sound Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1966 and is currently comprised of 146 members, along with two teams covering nearly 100 years of Puget Sound's renowned athletics program.
