The University of Mary Washington athletic department has announced changes in the Athletic Hall of Fame celebration, starting with the 2013-14 induction. The ceremony will coincide with a home basketball doubleheader, and include receptions with student-athletes, introductions during the basketball game, a cocktail reception, followed by the induction.
“We look forward to this exciting change in our Hall of Fame format", said UMW Athletic Director Ken Tyler. "It will give us an opportunity to properly recognize our inductees and truly give them their day. It will also allow our current student-athletes to hear the stories of our inductees and to be inspired by their many accomplishments. It will be a great day to be an Eagle!”
