Lakewood Youth Hall Of Fame

February 26, 1987

The Hall of Fame is an annual event honoring outstanding performances by athletes who reside in the city, were once residents of the city, participated on an athletic team headquartered in the city, or are currently participating in athletic programs in the city. The athlete of the year is the top award given. Performers of the year are chosen for each of the sports played in the city. Distinguished nominees are not award winners, but are recognized for their accomplishments. The awards for 1986 were handed out Monday at the Centre at Sycamore Plaza. The show will be cablecast by Jones Intercable on community access Channel 31 during March. The first showing is scheduled for March 6.
