SPS Sports Hall of Fame Accepting Nominations

SPS Sports Hall of Fame Accepting Nominations
Posted on 08/13/2019

The Springfield Public Schools Athletic Department is currently accepting nominations for the Class of 2019 SPS Sports Hall of Fame. Nominees must be graduates of an SPS high school from 2009 or earlier who had a stand-out high school athletic experience.

SPS Athletic Director Dwayne Early said elevating greater awareness of the SPS Sports Hall of Fame is a priority for his department.

“We have so much athletic talent, skill and drive among the students, coaches, administrators and so many others here at Springfield Public Schools and it’s a history with a long track record of many greats who have come before us,” said Early. “The Sports Hall of Fame is a way of connecting that great past to the present and an opportunity to celebrate who we are as a district.”

Assistant Superintendent of Schools Lydia Martinez said that although the SPS Sports Hall of Fame has existed for 12 years, she still meets lifelong Springfield residents who have not heard of it. “We want to change that,” said Martinez. “We want our SPS Sports Hall of Fame to be a source of pride that everyone knows about and is excited about because the athletic achievements our students and staff reach are an important, additional piece of what makes Springfield Public Schools so special.”

To date, more than 450 athletes have been inducted, nine teams, along with 20 coaches and 17 others who have contributed to high school athletics in other ways.

The Class of 2019 will be recognized during an Induction Ceremony taking place on Saturday, November 23rd at Central High School, 1840 Roosevelt Ave. Nomination forms for the SPS Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2019 and ticket information for the Induction Ceremony may be obtained by calling the SPS Athletic Department at (413) 787-7100 or HERE  

The SPS Sports Hall of Fame is administered through the SPS Athletics Department along with a Board of Directors comprised of community members. The Board is currently accepting applications for new board members.
