In recent months, so many annual sports events have been postponed or canceled because of COVID, with local sports hall of fame ceremonies included.
But no more, hopefully.
Three such events are scheduled to be held in coming weeks for different Arlington organizations – Marymount University, Bishop O’Connell High School and the Arlington Sports Hall of Fame.
Some of the new members have been waiting more than a year to be inducted, as the ceremonies kept being postponed. Now, they won’t have to wait much longer, again hopefully, as things continue to change because of COVID concerns.
Athletic hall of fames are valuable for any organization, a way to recognize their histories. Those inducted are proud new members, and it’s unfortunate they have had to wait so long to get their recognitions.
We’ll see what happens with these three ceremonies.
