Induction Year: 2010
Inducted as a recipient of
the Carl Vergamini Award for Contributions to Yellowjacket Athletics
Julius Erlenbach spent 14 years as chancellor at UW-Superior, retiring August 1, 2010. He had an enormous impact on the success of Yellowjacket athletics and has left a legacy that will be felt by student-athletes for many years.
An avid and knowledgeable Yellowjacket fan, Dr. Erlenbach can be found sitting high in the stands at most games and matches, cheering and encouraging Yellowjacket athletes as they compete. During his time at UW-Superior, the Marcovich Wellness Center was constructed, significant renovations were made to Wessman Arena, and a new soccer field was installed behind Ross Hall. Men's and women's soccer and women's hockey were added as varsity sports during his time as chancellor.
Also under his leadership, Yellowjacket athletes competed at the highest levels of competition, bringing home national championships, conference awards and championships and great recognition to the campus.
