    Seattle Public Schools Athletic Department, with the help of district partners, is announcing the creation of a new high school Athletic Hall of Fame of notable district alumni.

    SPS Athletic Department is pleased to announce the creation of the SPS Athletic Hall of Fame (AHoF) honoring outstanding SPS high school student athletes, coaches, administrators, and athletic community members. The AHoF is dedicated to connecting and engaging the larger Seattle community with SPS athletics, to empower current students with a rich history, pride and local role models, and to encourage financial support of high school athletics.

    For the inaugural induction class, AHoF committee members researched and reviewed 138 years of SPS athletics and selected 23 names. These distinguished inductees are remarkable because of their athletic prowess, and their leadership on and off the field/court. They represent the district’s 10 high schools and 3 former high schools: Broadway, Lincoln, and Queen Anne.


    In addition, the SPS AHoF has created the
    “Seattle 500” program to help streamline athletic funding. Open to the public, this donation program ensures no student athlete needs to pay to play. Further information, including how to join, is available on the SPS AHoF website.

    All funding for the SPS AHoF comes from district athletics partners, like the Washington Athletic Club and 101 Club, the City of Seattle, and many more. A full list of contributors can be found on the SPS AHoF website. Their donations will lead to a future, physical hall of fame building. Generosity from these groups is integral to funding athletic programs for students across the district, and continuing the legacy of Seattle Public Schools’ athletics.
