Five to be inducted into the NHS Hall of Fame
Four former Northfield High School athletes and one coach will be inducted into the NHS Athletic Hall of Fame at the 2012 Maroon and Gold Athletic Reception sponsored by the Northfield Booster Club. The reception is Tuesday, May 22 at the Northfield Middle School (reception at 6:15, and the awards ceremony at 7:00 PM). The five new members being inducted into the Hall of Fame will join the 110 current members of the Hall of Fame.
2012 inductees are: Brad Ness (Class of 1974); Mark Welinski (Class of 1975); Wayne “Mick” Scholl (Class of 1982); Michelle Barlau (Goodman) (Class of 1999); Scott Sahli (Teacher & Coach, 1978-2011).
The Northfield Booster Club Distinguished Service Award will be presented to Dale Ness signifying the significant contributions to the Northfield High School Athletic program and Northfield Community.
Other highlights of the evening will be the awarding of the MVP awards for all fall and winter sports and the presentation of the 2012 Outstanding Senior Athlete Awards. All Raider athletes who competed in State Tournaments this past year will also be honored, and all senior athletes will be recognized. We will also honor those senior athletes who have participated in “12 Seasons” of athletic competition at NHS, quite an accomplishment in today’s sports world!
The Raider Spirit Award will be presented for the 15th year. This award will be presented to senior athletes who have not received other honors or awards, but have excelled in the areas of spirit, enthusiasm, being coachable, citizenship and sportsmanship. Winners for this award are selected by the coaching staff, and sponsored by the Northfield News. KYMN Radio will also honor this years’ “Coach of the Year” at NHS.
