The inaugural inductees into the BA Athletic Hall of Fame were an accomplished group both during and after their years at BA! Their stories and stats, told by selection committee chair Scott Huebel, kept the audience captivated, and there were more than a few ooh’s and aah’s, and even a few tears.

With a total of 48 state championships in our 50 year history, it goes without saying that BA has had some talented student-athletes and coaches. This group played or coached on many of those teams, held numerous school records, served as team captains, led by example through hard work and dedication, loved their school, and made a lasting impact on the BA fields and courts.
Sitting in the audience, you knew you were part of something special as you learned more about each of the inductees as they took the “hof seat”. It was also evident by the BA family and friends that were in the audience – numerous former faculty and staff, alumni, alumni parents, and of course the spouses and families of the inducted coaches and athletes. You were reminded that BA is not just a school; it’s a community, and a family.
Congratulations to each of our inductees! Thank you for each of your contributions to BA athletics.
