A championship boxer, the founder of Rancho Cordova Soccer, an amazing sports family and a storied youth baseball team will be among those inducted into the Rancho Cordova Sports Hall of Fame this October.
The inductees will be honored during the 2017 Induction Ceremony slated for Oct. 14 at Rancho Cordova City Hall.
“Rancho Cordova has a uniquely powerful history of youth sports achievement,” said David Sander, a Rancho Cordova City Councilman and president of the Rancho Cordova Athletic Association. “Our Hall of Fame memorializes that incredible history and should inspire our current youth athletes as well.”
To be elected to the Rancho Cordova Sports Hall of Fame, inductees were judged to have attained significant achievements in or contributions to athletics, as well as exhibiting high standards of character and sportsmanship.
“The history of Rancho Cordova is closely linked with some of the most talented athletes in the country,” said Conrade Mayer, chairman of the Hall of Fame selection committee. “We need to look at this amazing sports legacy and allow it to inspire our entire community, especially our youth.”
