The Shorter Department of Athletics Hall of Fame membership grew Friday night when the seven men and women, who make up the Hall’s Class of 2013, were honored during induction ceremonies held at the Winthrop-King Centre.
Included in the newest group of Hall of Famers were four former student-athlete standouts who became the first representatives of their respective sports to enter into the Hall – Kate Puckett Link (volleyball), Robert Whitnell (men’s soccer), Zach Morrison (football) and Jessica Sanders (softball).
Rounding out the honorees are Patsy Boynton Shivers (women’s basketball and women’s cross country), Scott Parrish (baseball) and Robert H. Ledbetter Sr. (Distinguished Service).
The inductees were also honored at Saturday’s Homecoming game between Shorter’s Hawks and West Georgia that kicked off at 1:30 p.m. at Barron Stadium, and took part in the coin toss before the game at midfield.
