The fourth annual induction of athletes into the North East Athletic Hall of Fame will be held Friday, July 13, at the Harborcreek Social Hall on Buffalo Road. Doors open at 5 p.m. with a cash bar, dinner is scheduled for 6:00 with the induction to follow.

Seven great athletes have been selected for enshrinement; Mel Puscheck, David Mazza, Tony Webb, Aaron Meehl, Shawna Boyd Christopher and Steve Hair.  Ms. Tricia Mahoney was also selected for induction but due to a previous family commitment, will be inducted next year.

Also, being inducted will be 28 players and coaches from North East’s 1967 undefeated football team. They will be joined by 11 players and coaches from the 1967-68 championship boys basketball team.

Track, cross country and basketball memorabilia donated by the family of the late, legendary coach, Ted Miller will be available for selection.

Tickets may be purchased at the North East Chamber of Commerce. Ticket sales end July 9 and tickets cannot be purchased at the door. Seating is “open” so groups attending may wish to have a member attend early to reserve your seats.
