Conshohocken resident Debbie Hartnett is being inducted into Seton Hall University’s Hall of Fame for her record setting career playing for the women’s basketball team. Harnett is a 1989 graduate of Seton Hall. She is originally from Plymouth Meeting and is a graduate of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.
During her career at Seton Hall, Hartnett was a four-year letter winner for the Pirates. At the time of her graduation she was the program’s third all-time leading scorer with 1,632 points. That number still ranks fifth in school history. She was a three-time All-BIG EAST selection, including second-team honors in 1988 and 1989. Her 1988 season was one of the best in school history; she averaged 18.3 points per game, which at the time was the highest in program history and still ranks fifth-best today. Her 89.7 percent free throw shooting in 1986-87 is still No. 1 in the record book.
The induction ceremony is on June 1st in New Jersey.
