Kentucky Athletics’ six-person 2007 Hall of Fame class, announced last spring, is to be formally inducted in Lexington the weekend of Sept. 28-29. The group, which includes volleyball player Marsha Bond, men’s basketball player Larry Conley, baseball player Dom Fucci, track athlete Jim Green, former coach and athletics director Harry Lancaster and football player Moe Williams, will take part in the Hall of Fame Induction Dinner Friday, Sept. 28, before being recognized the following day at halftime of the UK-Florida Atlantic football game.
The Hall of Fame Dinner, to be held at the Embassy Suites, starts at 6:45 p.m., with a reception at 6 p.m. Tickets are $100 for a seat, or $1,000 for a table of 10. Those interested in purchasing tickets should contact Leslie Bray at (859) 257-2589.
The UK Athletics Hall of Fame was started in 2005 to recognize and honor persons whose participation and contributions enriched and strengthened the University’s athletics program. There is a five-year waiting period - after leaving UK - to be eligible for inclusion into the Hall of Fame, and a 10-year waiting period to have a jersey retired. An individual must be a member of the Hall of Fame to be eligible for jersey retirement.
