Quaker Valley announces Hall of Fame class

| Monday, June 19, 2017, 11:00 p.m.

The Quaker Valley Sports Hall of Fame last week announced the inductees for the Class of 2017.

The inductees include the conference champion and once-beaten 1967 football team, the school's only WPIAL basketball champion — the 1997 boys basketball team — and three athletes and one contributor — historian John Munizza (1972), football and basketball player Scott Molitor (1997), volleyball player Janette Schneider (2003) and tennis player Annie Houghton (2007), who was the only girl in WPIAL history to win both girls and boys singles titles.

“We are extremely impressed with the outstanding and impressive qualifications of the class of 2017,” athletic director and boys basketball coach Mike Mastroianni said. “They represent different eras, and their credentials are remarkable and unquestioned. Our athletic department and our school district are very fortunate to have had such distinguished contributors.”

The Class of 2017 will be inducted into the Quaker Valley Sports Hall of Fame on Sept. 17 at a brunch and awards ceremony at Sewickley Heights Golf Club.

It will be the featured event of the Quaker Valley Sports Hall of Fame weekend celebration beginning with recognition at the football game Sept. 15.

The Hall of Fame committee is encouraging all former Quaker Valley athletes and supporters to attend the weekend festivities.

The Herald will feature each inductee this summer.

Tickets to attend the Hall of Fame induction banquet will go on sale in early August.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
