Last Thursday, the CEC Sports Hall of Fame inducted the Class of 2026 at Northampton Country Club. The nine new members and team were welcomed to the Hall of Fame during a wonderful evening that had over 200 people in attendance. The Sports Hall of Fame, in its 11th year, brought together over 60 years of competitive sports from Bishop Conwell, Bishop Egan, and Conwell-Egan, as inductees spanned from the classes of 1960 through 2004.
“It was really a whole family feel,” said Committee Chairman Bill Burns ’73. “To have accomplished athletes and friends of CEC that span 64 years get together in a room and share stories is a great feeling. We are proud to recognize these distinguished individuals who have contributed to the rich history of CEC athletics. We are thrilled to welcome this newest class into the Hall of Fame and are grateful for the support of our community for this great tradition.”
The CEC Sports Hall of Fame was formed to acknowledge the achievements of great athletes from Bishop Conwell, Bishop Egan, and Conwell-Egan Catholic. This event is a way to honor these individuals who have distinguished themselves through their athletic accomplishments, contributing to the tradition of excellence in CEC athletics.
All proceeds from this annual banquet fund improvements at CEC. Sports Hall of Fame funds have provided a state-of-the-art sound system and a portion of gymnasium renovations. The committee is currently working on creating a permanent Sports Hall of Fame monument that will be housed at CEC as a lasting record of all who have been inducted.
Nominations for the Class of 2024 are now open until October 20, 2023. Find nomination instructions here: https://conwell-egan.org/documents/Nomination%20Intructions%20.pdf
