Terry Corey of Billings and Nathan Bailey of Laurel will be inducted into Rocky Mountain College's Clara Klindt Athletic Hall of Fame in September.

Corey, who is a former Rocky athletic director, and Bailey, a two-time NAIA All-America golfer for the Battlin' Bears, will be saluted during the school's Hall of Fame weekend on Sept. 7, Rocky athletic director Robert Beers announced on Wednesday.

Corey and Bailey will be introduced at halftime of the Rocky-Dickinson State football game, which begins at 1 p.m. on Herb Klindt Field, and will also be honored at a banquet later that night in The Great Hall in Prescott Hall.

Corey served as athletic director at Rocky from 1999-2008 after spending 18 years as a teacher, coach and activities director at Billings Senior.

"T.C.'s dedication for as long as he was here -- to not just the institution, but to the individual student-athletes that made up the athletic department -- is to be commended and needs to be noticed," Beers said.

Bailey, who has won the last three Montana State Amateur championships and will be going for a fourth title next month in Helena, graduated from Rocky in 2004. He regularly had one of the top scoring averages in the NAIA, and established several Frontier Conference scoring records as a player for the Bears.

"Nate did some things while he was here at Rocky that are unique -- and that needs to be recognized," Beers said.

Bailey will also be inducted into the Montana State Golf Association Hall of Fame during an Aug. 16 ceremony in Kalispell.
