Arizona Athletics will add five individuals and four NCAA National Championship swimming relay teams to the University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
The five individuals are recently retired head baseball coach Andy Lopez, former baseball players Trevor Crowe and Dave Baldwin, and former women's golfers Erica Blasberg and Susan Slaughter.
Three of the four relay teams going in are from the 2008 National Championship team. Darian Townsend was a member of all four of the teams that will be going into the U of A Hall of Fame.
All the inductees will be honored during an on-field presentation at halftime of the football game vs. UTSA on September 3rd. The following night, there will be an induction ceremony and dinner held at the Westin La Paloma at 6 PM.
According to ArizonaWildcats.com, requirements for induction include: First-team All-American, NCAA champion, world record setter, Olympic medalist, NCAA statistical leader, professional athletic success, distinguished him/herself as a "pioneer" student-athlete or significant contributor to UA Athletics while at the University or after graduation.
Congrats to all the inductees, and man I hope someone lets Andy Lopez give a speech at halftime of a football game. That would be something else.
