Seven to join Lebanon Athletic Hall of Fame Feb. 12

The Lebanon High School athletic department announced last week that the new inductees will be honored during the boys varsity basketball home game against Troy on Feb. 12, with a reception following the game in the school cafeteria.

The Lebanon Athletic Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010-11 includes Greg Abrams, Judy Conrad, Shawn Enright, John Noble, Ann Worley, Dick James and Tom McRoberts.

Abrams was a long time wrestling coach for the Warriors, building one of the most successful programs in southwest Ohio during his tenure in the 1980s and 90s. He coached Noble and Enright, who were state champions for the Warriors in their respective weight classes.

Worley was Lebanon’s first individual state champion in track and field, winning the high jump in 1994.

James was a successful golfer at Lebanon High and went on to run Harmon Golf Course for years and was a significant contributor to the Warrior golf program.

Conrad coached softball, basketball and track at Lebanon High School and played a critical role in the growth of girls sports at Lebanon High.

McRoberts was a successful athlete while at Lebanon High School but was perhaps better known for his work as a sports writer for The Western Star and the Middletown Journal and for his work as an announcer on Warrior football and basketball brodcasts.

“We’re looking forward to honoring our new inductees and having those who can come back and be a part of a big night,” Lebanon High School athletic director Joe Roberts said. “These are seven quality individuals and each of them played an important role in our athletic programs over the years.

“It’s going to be a fun night.”

The 2010-11 class is the first class of individuals selected since 2007. Last year, Lebanon inducted the 1998 Division II state champion football team as a team.

Tickets for the basketball game and induction ceremonies can be obtained at the Lebanon Athletic Office.
