Sonoma State Hall of Fame dinner postponed
Due to the continuing threat of wildfires, the tragic loss of life, homes and property in and around Sonoma County, the Sonoma State University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has postponed the Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner originally scheduled for Oct. 28 It has not yet been determined when the event will be rescheduled.
“Our department administrative team and the university administration have been evaluating the status of the Athletic Hall of Fame event the past few days, and the events of this past week are in our hearts and minds,” said SSU Director of Athletics Bill Fusco. “Our focus right now is to re-open the university soon and provide as much support to our campus community and the Sonoma County community as possible.
“It will take some time to determine when the dinner will be rescheduled,” added Fusco. “One thing is for certain, as a department, we still want to honor everybody that was supposed to be inducted on Oct. 28 and have all of the inductees in attendance when the event is rescheduled.”
It was announced last month that Stacy Ball, Karen Beckner, Eric Cunningham, Steven Pratt, Carolyn Wellman and the 1972-73 and 1973-74 men’s basketball teams will be honored for their athletic excellence and contributions to the history of Sonoma State University Athletics.
Additionally, long-time campus police officer and SSU women’s soccer All-American Judy Mefferd (Vonheeder) will be presented with the Dr. G. Edward Rudloff Distinguished Student-Athlete Alumni Award.
