This year’s event will celebrate deserving individuals who have yet to be recognized and who have participated in the Olympic Games, as well as others who have excelled at a local, national or international level of competition in the areas of baseball, fast-pitch softball and officiating. Additionally, the Hall will honor coaches and athletic administrators for their outstanding achievements and for the positive examples they have set for Riverside’s youth. Brief bios of each honoree will be read as they are introduced and their names are revealed etched in granite, permanently recording this moment in Riverside sports history. Individuals to be recognized this year and worthy of this high praise by category are:

Olympians: Whitney Ashley, Tyler Clary and Brenda Martinez

Fast-Pitch Softball: Albert “Red” Strickland

Officiating: Paul Mahoney

Coaches/Athletic Administrators: Gary Adcock, Glenn Anderson,  Ken Batdorf, Don Birren, Delores “Smokey” Crisucci, Ron Edmondson, Becky Gagnon, Rich Graves, Bill Grisham, Gene Hughes, Will Jacobsmeyer, Dr. Linda Lacy, Charles Leathers, Tony Masi, Brad Peters, Charlie Ricards, Gwen Ritzau, Rick Rowland, Gary Rungo, and Doug Smith.

Riverside is proud of its exemplary sports history and each of these individuals that have contributed greatly to community pride. The annual event is free and is open to the public.

Knowing that there are far more praiseworthy individuals whose names have yet to be affixed to the Wall, the Riverside Sport Hall of Fame will continue to identify and add the names of deserving athletes, coaches and contributors each year at this Wall of Distinction event.

During this event, the names of those individuals who have been selected for induction into the Riverside Sport Hall of Fame 2017 INDUCTION CELEBRATION will be announced.
