Six individual athletes, a boys’ cross country team and the school district’s athletic trainer will be inducted into the Cinnaminson High School Athletic Hall of Fame tonight.
The event, to be held at Riverton Country Club, is now held every two years and honors the town’s athletic elite.
This is the second time a team will be inducted into the hall of fame along with its coach. The boys’ 1969 cross-country team, led by Gene Campbell, will be inducted. A few members of the team—including Campbell—have been inducted separately.
The other athletes to be inducted are:
David Abbe—Class of 1987—Baseball
Gerald Collins—Class of 1987—Football
Valerie Collins—Class of 1976—Basketball
Andre Fogel Howard—Class of 1983—Basketball
Lisa Brooks Tullman—Class of 1982—Tennis
Murmond Williams—Class of 1972—Track
Cinnaminson’s athletic trainer Mark “Chip” Cherwony will also be inducted. Cherwony celebrated his 25th year with the school district in 2011.
“I’m extremely honored,” Cherwony said. “It’s a very special honor. Cinnaminson is really a second home for me.”
Cherwony is on the hall of fame committee and usually serves as the emcee but will hand the reins over to co-chair Beth Johnson-Reeves.
Cherwony said the bulk of the criteria for induction is what you did in high school and even in college. Everyone gets graded from one to 10 and the committee analyzes the scores.
You must have not only graduated from CHS but gone to the district for at least eight years.
The banquet will be held at 6 p.m. tonight at Riverton Country Club.
