After a successful launch of an all-sports hall of fame last year, Jeannette saw fit to make the venture a tradition. To that end, the district announced the second Jayhawk Athletic Hall of Fame class Friday.

The 2019 inductees are:

• Earl Highlands (Class of 1963, basketball)

• Greg Hall (1976, wrestling)

• LuAnn Mills (1980, basketball)

• Bob Powell (1985), track)

• Mycal Jones (1997, football)

• Shelley Muto (1999, soccer)

• Michael Dent (2004, football)

• Carl Davis (basketball coach)

• Paul Gaudi (contributor)

• 1971 football team

Honorees in the legends division (pre-1950) are:

• Markley Barnes (football coach)

• John Love (1930, football)

• John Eibner (1934, football)

The induction banquet will be Feb. 22 at Ferrante’s Lakeview. Ticket information will be available later.

Members of the 1971 football team are asked to visit the JCSD website (www.jeannetteschooldistrict.org), click on the ‘Extracurricular’ tab, and complete the survey at the bottom of the page.

Here is a look at the inaugural hall of fame class of 2018.
