Arnold, Griffith among 1st Hall of Fame class at LAHS

-A A +A

Athletics > Honorees will be recognized during 2014 Homecoming weekend

By Mike Cote

A former National Football League player, several former coaches and the man whose name adorns the gymnasium at the Los Alamos High School campus are among the first inductees into the Los Alamos sports Hall of Fame.
New LAHS athletic director Ann Stewart announced the inaugural class of the Hall of Fame Tuesday. In all, 13 nominees were selected for the honor.
LAHS started soliciting for nominees earlier this year. The nomination period closed in June.
The inductees include Walt Arnold, Lynn Bjorklund, Burt Buehrer, Carol Cady, Louie Cernicek, Bob Cox, Steven Craven, Turk Griffith, Bill Hudson, William D. McWilliams, Gene Mortensen, Morrie Pongratz and Anthony Sandoval.
Those honorees are among the most celebrated former athletes, coaches and supporters of Hilltopper sports for the past 50-plus years.
Pongratz, the longtime public address announcer, whose voice can be heard over the loudspeakers at many Hilltopper sporting contests annually, said he nominated a few of those who ended up making it into the first class of honorees, but didn’t think he would be among them.
“I’m just a talker,” Pongratz said. “Most of these other guys are real athletes.”
