Boosters to Induct AHS Hall of Famers

Boosters to Induct AHS Hall of Famers

The fourth Alameda High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place in person Saturday Aug. 28, at 5:30 p.m., at the Alameda Elks Club.

In the Fall of 2016, Alameda High established an athletic Hall of Fame. A committee of eight volunteers has taken on the task of meeting regularly and combing through endless articles, websites and nominations to find the most qualified athletes. The committee has decided to induct 10 new members each year and have uncovered spectacular athletes in numerous sports.

The preparation begins each fall, when potential candidates are discussed and nominations are made to the nomination committee for both individual athletes and teams.

Then the 20 to 30 nominations are presented to the selection committee, which chooses 10 individuals early in the year.

Then the national search is on to notify the recipients and family members. All of this culminates in the banquet and induction ceremony. Plaques summarizing the accomplishments of each inductee will be displayed in Alameda High School’s new gym, the Hornets’ Nest.

The 2021 Inductees into the Alameda High School Athletic Hall of Fame are:

• Johnny Vergez, class of 1925, baseball
• Herman Pete, class of 1934, basketball
• Dorothy Stolze, class of 1941 baseball
