The Kiski Area athletic community gathered last month to celebrate a group of Cavaliers greats.

Their exploits in competition were recognized with enshrinement as the latest class of the Kiski Area Sports Hall of Fame.

Lauded during the Sept. 2 banquet and ceremony were Sean Arnold (Class of 1998, soccer, football, basketball, track and field); Victoria Brungo (Class of 2010, swimming and diving); Chelsy Cosentino (Class of 2010, softball and basketball); Brandon Faber (Class of 1995, baseball and basketball); Lynn Walton Fleckenstein (Class of 1995, track and field and cross county); Matt McCutcheon (Class of 2013, wrestling and baseball); Felicia Faye Reid (Class of 2011, volleyball and track and field); Andrew Vida (Class of 1976, football and track and field, posthumous induction); and Michael Wagner (Class of 2002, track and field and cross country).

The inductees went on to represent Kiski Area on various college teams throughout the region.

This year’s class of nine brings the total number of individual inductees to more than 150 since the first group was enshrined in 2006.

The hall of fame went on hiatus in 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic but returned last year.

Anthony Nicholas and Frank Morea also were honored at the banquet with the Bill Miller Community Service Award.

Plaques recognizing the inductees will be on display in the athletic wing of the high school. All of the previous induction classes and information on each individual and team inductee can be found by visiting kiskiarea.com.
