Norwin recognizes latest Hall of Fame classes

Friday, July 30, 2021 | 12:21 PM

The latest two classes of the Norwin Athletic Hall of Fame will include stars of the past from track and field, cross country, soccer, swimming, wrestling, softball and volleyball.

This also will be a unique year for the committee and inductees.

Normally, the hall of fame ceremony is a biennial event, but it will include the 2020 and ’21 classes because last year’s induction banquet was canceled because of the pandemic.

The inductees will be recognized Oct. 12 at Stratigos Banquet Centre in North Huntingdon. The 2021 class includes: Drew Phipps (2016 graduate, wrestling), Otto Tancraitor (2000, soccer), Kris Wexell-Ruppert (1983, volleyball), Madeline Wensel (2015, softball) and the 2005 boys volleyball team and the undefeated girls cross country team from 2009.

The 2020 all-female class includes: Jenna Gigliotti (2010, cross country), Kathy Marchalek Pawlak (1994, track and field), Kathryn Painter (2015, swimming) and the 2008 and ’09 WPIAL champion girls track and field teams.
