McConnellsburg Alumni and Friends Association will induct its third class of athletes into the Fulton County All-Sports Hall of Fame at its biennial induction ceremony on April 6.

This year’s class includes Donald Fowler, Ralph Fraker, C. Owen Fries, John Glazier, Herb Hardin, Fran Mellott, Carole Palmer and Larry Palmer. These men and women are being inducted for the incredible amount of time, patience, and energy that they have dedicated to youths and their passion for sports.

The first-ever Fulton County All-Sports Hall of Fame induction occurred in 2014 and honored former standout county athletes Clyde Barnhart, John Gracey, Rosaline Hixson, Carl Paylor, Tom Peck, and Robert Snyder II.

In 2016 the Hall of Fame inducted the 1991 McConnellsburg High School state championship girls basketball team. 2016 marked the team’s 25th anniversary of the PIAA win. Championship team members included Tiffany Bard, Amy Booth, Paulette Carbaugh, Dee DeShong, Rebecca Eisaman, Leslie Kendall, Angela McElhaney, Marla McElhaney, Stacey Peck, Nikki Seiders, Misti Soter, Rochelle Swope and coaches Audrey

Hall and Dot Doyle.

The Hall of Fame induction is made possible by sponsors and advertisers within the community. If interested in purchasing a sponsorship package for the All- Sports Hall of Fame, please contact Kathy Kendall for details. Tickets are available from now until March 16 at a cost of $25.

In honor of their induction, The Fulton County News will publish a short bio of each of this year’s inductees weekly. Keep checking the “News” for their stories.
