On October 21, 2016, the Kutztown High’s Athletic Hall of Fame held their annual induction ceremony. Softball standout Megan Conrad and long-time tennis coach Harry McGonigle were this year’s inductees. Also honored was the entire 1959 Boys Basketball Team, for their perfect 29 win – 0 loss season and winning the PIAA Pennsylvania State Class B Basketball Championship.
The Hall of Fame mission is “to recognize those people who contributed to the Kutztown Area athletic program or those athletes who achieved prominence in their respective sport.” Make note that the Hall of Fame welcomes nominations for future candidates, and that forms to do so are available on the KASD website.
The Education Foundation’s link to the Hall of Fame is board member-in- common, Mrs. Diane Haring, who is the Hall of Fame Committee’s Chairperson. We applaud Diane for her service, which helps to emphasize KAHS athletics, present and past. The Foundation members believe that Kutztown’s sports programs are part of the enhanced opportunities afforded by our very special school district.
