2012 was the first year for the Amherst County Sports Hall of Fame.
Check out the list of Inductees on the attached page below.
This was an excellent group of Inductees.
From that day in the Fall of 2012, the Board of Directors knew the Hall of Fame was going to be something special.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2012!!!!!

2012 was something special.
The Board of Directors knew they had their work cut out for them to make 2013 as successful as the year before.
It didn't take long to compile a second group of deserving Inductees who contributed to the great history of Amherst County Sports.
Check out the list below of special people who are very deserving of being Hall of Fame Inductees.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2013!!!!!
One would think the Board of Directors was running our of candidates for the next group.
People were starting to wonder who will be inducted next.
Nominees were coming in from the general public,.
The list of possible Inductees grew larger and the Board of Directors met the challenge again.
They named a third group of Inductees who made sports history in Amherst County.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2014!!!!!
Amherst County Residents have now grasp the realization of the importance of the Hall of Fame
and the impact on the lives of those who have been inducted.
Recognizing sports athletes, coaches, administrators and contributors has been the talk of the town.
We were receiving nominees who we as a Board of Directors may have forgotten or maybe never heard of.
The Nominating Committee got it right again and named the next group of deserving Inductees.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2015!!!!!
Every year the individual Inductees are honored by being acknowledged
for their contribution to the history of sports in Amherst County.
As for the teams that are inducted every year it is more than the acknowledgement,
it is revisiting the past and re-newing old friendships with friends they have not seen in many years.
Without the Hall of Fame they may have never enjoyed this opportunity in their lifetime.
Seeing friends re-united and enjoying memories that have been held on to for more than 50 years makes it all worth while.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2016!!!!!
The first five years were exciting for everyone involved.
In the beginning many people were reluctant to get involved because they didn't think it would last.
Here we are in year six with the same 12 board members who still have as much dedication as on day one back in 2012.
It's time for them to up their game and that's exactly what they did.
Below is the list of this years very deserving Inductees.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS of 2017!!!!!
Every year the Board of Directors evaluate the list of nominees in order to select the upcoming Inductees.
The goal is to choose deserving people from all different sports.
This year is no different. Coaches, contributors, baseball, softball, basketball, football and this year is the first for archery.
Just when you think the Hall of Fame is the best it can be. It seems to get just a little better.
This years Inductees are no different. Very deserving to say the least.
