The outstanding athletic accomplishments of Lyndonville High student athletes will be honored in a very special way in the future as the school is forming an Athletic Hall of Fame.

“We have a pretty rich athletic tradition here and this is a great way to honor the outstanding accomplishments of our former athletes,” said Athletic Director Jim Zeliff. “I’m really excited about it. It will give inspiration and incentive to our current athletes and it will also drum up interest in the community.”

Zeliff noted that the purpose of the Hall of Fame is “to highlight those who have made a positive impact on the Lyndonville Athletic program and maintain relationships, history, and tradition within the school community.”

A committee will be formed to select the inductees and it is planned to have up to 10 inductees the first year, up to five the second and up to three each year after that.

There are four categories for selection including as an athlete, a team, a coach and a special contributor/supporter/fan.

Nominations can be submitted to Zeliff and a nomination form is available on the school’s website. The deadline for nominations this year is March 1, 2021 and the inductees will be announced in May.
