Meg Bulger is a member of the WPIAL Hall of Fame Class of 2016. She was introduced during an event Wednesday April 13, 2016, at the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum in the Strip District.

Former WPIAL basketball star Meg Bulger enjoyed a Hall of Fame induction over the weekend.


This time in Morgantown, W.Va.

The West Virginia Athletics Hall of Fame opened its doors to Bulger , where she joins her brother Marc (football) and sister Kate (basketball), who are also members.

Bulger — an Oakland Catholic alum — was a scoring standout over her four years as a Mountaineer.

After starting her career as the Big East Rookie of the Year, Bulger went on to become a two-time Honorable Mention All-American in Morgantown. Bulger departed WVU ranked fifth all-time in career scoring with 1,665 points.

During her four seasons at Oakland Catholic High School, she won 120 games and lost only 10. That’s why she is a WPIAL Hall of Famer, too.

Bulger is now working on some of the WVU basketball and football broadcasts. We talk about her expanding media career, the state of women’s basketball and West Virginia’s place in the Big XII for both women’s hoops and football.

Plus, we get into her family’s famous basketball brawls, if Marc is going to come out of retirement to be a Steelers quarterback and his quest to be an Olympic curler.

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.
