7:30-9:00 PM Introduction of 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees
It is our goal to recognize those young men and women who over the years distinguished themselves through athletics while attending and representing their school and community. The idea of an Athletic Hall of Fame first came to light as a remembrance of John Baggerly. It is the hope of this committee to create a Hall that would have made John proud. It is not possible to recognize all the athletes worthy of this honor in the first year or even in the first ten years, so the committee asks for your understanding.
The LGHS Athletic Hall of Fame is sponsored by the Los Gatos Athletic Association.
