The four inductees are NBA veteran Anthony Johnson (1994-97), former athletic director Jerry Baker (1991-07), former sailing All-American Kara Shadwick-Museler (1992-95) and former menís soccer All-American defender Luiz Vieira (1987-90).
Johnson was Charlestonís first NBA draft pick, selected 40th overall by Sacramento in 1997. Johnson is the schoolís all-time career leader in assists with 520. During his four-year career, the Cougars compiled a 101-17 record, four TAAC championships, two NIT and two NCAA tournament appearances.

Vierira, a defender, became the first menís soccer player to be selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America NAIA Division-I All-America First Team in 1988 as a sophomore. During his senior campaign, Vieira led the team with 12 goals and six assists as CofC played 16 of its 22 games on the road finishing the year with an 11-8-3 record.
