Kelly Cavanagh (1988-2000) helped establish Tiffin University's nationally-recognized track and field program while also serving as compliance coordinator. She helped spearhead the launch of the track program in the early 1990s, coaching from 1993-2000. She coached Tiffin's first NAIA National qualifiers in the 4x400 relays while also guiding the school's first conference champions in the men's 200 meters and the women's 100 meter hurdles. She also worked tirelessly in compliance for 11 years, helping nearly all Tiffin's athletes during that period to reach their academic goals.
K.C. Tener (1993-96) is a standout defensive lineman for two of Tiffin's most successful football teams. He earned NAIA All-American honors while playing in the trenches while also earning two All-Conference citations during his career. He played for Tiffin's two NAIA National Tounament teams, including the TU's Elite Eight squad in 1994. His intensity on the line is reflected in his ranking amongst the Dragons' career leaders in assisted tackles with 117 and his single-game high of 23 tackles in a game in 1996, the third-highest single game mark in school history.
Josh Martin (1998-2001) is one of the premier post players in Tiffin University men's basketball history. He ranks 14th in career scoring for Tiffin with 1260 points, earning NAIA All-American honors along with three All-Conference selections during his three seasons with the Dragons. He was a NAIA National Player of the Week honoree in 2001 and is sixth in career rebounding average. His accomplishments have stood the test of time as he still appears in the top 10 in seven different offensive categories.
Ali Lukungu (1999-2002) is one of the most honored men's soccer players in Tiffin University history. He earned three NAIA All-American honors over his career while also landing four All-Region and All-Conference citations. He is the career leader in assists and is also a three-time First Team All-Ohio standout. He finished his career second in points and fourth in goals while also earning two NAIA Scholar Athlete honors. He helped lead the Dragons to 59 wins over his career, including a 34-8-2 record (.809) in conference play and the 1999 American Mideast Conference championship.
Katie Siroky (1999-2002) is one of the premier softball players in Tiffin University history. She earned 2002 Region IX Player of the Year honors while also landing two All-Region and three All-Conference citations over her career. While leading the team to the 2002 American Mideast Conference championship, she finished third in the nation in batting. Over her career she batted .404 and still holds the record for career triples. At the time of her graduation she had rewritten the Dragons softball record book, setting 16 new season and career marks while also leading the team to 107 wins and a 73-27 mark (.730) in conference play.
