Introducing USM’s 2022 Hall of Fame Inductees

Introducing USM’s 2022 Hall of Fame Inductees

USM’s third class of Athletic Hall of Fame inductees was honored during a ceremony in October. The group consists of barrier-breaking athletes, inspirational coaches, and a long-standing supporter of the school’s athletic program.

“I was reminded of the power of student athletes recently when I attended the girls’ tennis individual championships,” said Head of School Steve Hancock in his opening remarks. “I saw these students competing and cheering each other on, and then telling me about how they’ll be studying for their AP U.S. History exam that evening. It really hit home with me that these students are committed to being both scholars and athletes.”

The school honored several of its outstanding former scholar athletes, and the individuals who supported them, by naming them to the third class inducted into the USM Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022. The event was attended by hundreds of guests, and was a reminder of the school’s long history of educating the whole student.

Congratulations to the 2022 inductees:
