Eight athletes were recently recognized for their achievements at the high school and college level with their induction into the Hilton High School Sports Hall of Fame.
This year’s inductees were David Heise, Class of 1993, soccer and basketball; Eric Fontanez, 2009, indoor and outdoor track; Amanda Griggs, 2006, cross country, indoor and outdoor track; Carlton Moore, 1996, basketball; John Picardo, 2007, cross country, indoor and outdoor track; Rebecca Ritchie, 2006, soccer, volleyball, outdoor track; Allison Sawyer, 2007, cross country, indoor and outdoor track; and Caroline Schultz, 2007, cross country, indoor and outdoor track.
The induction ceremony was held during the Hilton High School Hall of Fame Boys Basketball Tournament. Inductees were honored at a reception before the game.
The Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made contributions to the Hilton athletic program — and, in some cases, at a higher level — through their participation as athletes, coaches or administrators. Candidates must be Hilton graduates for a minimum of five years or retired coaches from the Hilton Central School District.
