A dedicated team of Hill alumni, faculty, and administrators developed this honorary hall and recognition program. Hill’s proud and enduring athletics tradition is one that merits celebration, and The Hill School Athletics Hall of Fame appropriately and elegantly honors outstanding athletic achievement by Hill alumni, coaches, and teams. The Athletics Hall of Fame spotlights the very best of the many remarkable individuals and teams from The Hill School’s storied past, linking the past to the present and inspiring current Hill student-athletes, coaches, and teams to further greatness.
Nominations are made in one or more of the following categories: Player; Coach; Team; or Extraordinary Sports Achievement, in recognition of superior athletic or sports-related accomplishment by a Hill alumnus/alumna in his or her service to sport. In general, athletes must wait 10 years for Hall of Fame eligibility and teams must wait 15 years. The Trophy Room will continue to honor Hill athletics as well, but the Hall of Fame will be a more distinct and elevated honor from Trophy Room accolades.
In the inaugural year (2012), a special “Founders’ Hall” was inducted for those uncontestable, legendary and/or posthumous coaches, alumni and Hill administrators that had significant impact on Hill athletics. The Founders’ Hall was a one-time, distinct class induction celebrated at the inaugural induction ceremony in January 2013.
