Postponed: Athletics Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame Postponed to Spring

There has been much excitement and anticipation around St. Francis’ first Athletics Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 17th. Unfortunately, we need to postpone this event and are anticipating hosting it in spring 2019.

Inductees, guests and volunteers have been notified.
