Dragon Hall of Fame seeks ’78, ’79 cross country women
The Sonoma Valley High School’s alumni committee organizing the 2013 Dragon Hall of Fame event, which takes place Saturday, May 11, at Hanna Boys Center’s impressive new facility on its Arnold Drive campus, needs help with its search for members of the Sonoma girls’ 1978 and ’79 cross country championship teams.
Along with the former champion Lady Dragon runners, the 2013 Dragon Hall of Fame induction class will also include one coach and one business with special awards, as well as honoring seven individual athletes.
The back-to-back title-winning Sonoma girls’ cross country championship teams members include Suzie Gitti, Cathy Bettencourt, Jennifer Secrist, Jane Fonseca, Kari Anderson, Paula Forrest, Julie Davidson, Connie Snyder, Jamie Pickering, Dolores Fernandez, Cindy Chambers, Cindy Archer, Katie Juffman, Lori Norlock, Kori Schake, Pam Masten, Joanne Morovich, Cheri Bauer, Julie Hirsh, Jeanne Martin, Macial Felton, Val Haase, Mary Ann Weber, Eve Decker, Patricia Gallagher, Karen Dimick, Madeline Potter, Jane Masten, Eve Eshelman, Gae Eshelman, Lisa Ross and Tami Chambers.
Anyone with contact information for the cross-country women being inducted – as well as Dragon Hall of Fame ticket details or to make donations – can call SVHS alumnus Bob Kruljac at 483-1856.
Included in Sonoma’s 2013 Hall of Fame class are former coach Pam Adams accepting the D.A. Pfeiffer Coaches Award; and Broadway Market receiving the Mulas Family Recognition Award, which is named for the late Schellville fire chief and dairy farmer, Mitch Mulas, and his family.
The award honors people, families or businesses who have contributed time and/or resources to ensure that the Valley’s students, athletes and coaches have the additional support necessary to have successful seasons and experiences.
The 2013 Dragon Hall of Fame athletic individual inductees are Jim Sweet for the 1950s; Bruce Bromley and Bill Marioni for the 1960s; Kevin Woods for the 1970s; Marnett Smalley and Brad Svennungsen for the 1980s; and Dan Littlefield for the 1990s.
