Saint Ignatius High School

Athletic Hall of Fame

The Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes members of the Ignatius community who have excelled in one or more sports and who have distinguished themselves and the school in their athletic endeavors while a student or coach at Saint Ignatius High School.
Saint Ignatius Athletic Hall of Fame recipients are chosen based on a level of excellence in a particular sport (e.g. captain, team MVP, all district, all Ohio, etc.), especially as it relates to other teammates and the level of competition during the candidate's era. Consideration is also given to candidates who participated in multiple sports during their careers, even if their level of success varied in those sports. Finally, the committee attempts to select candidates that result in a class of inductees that appropriately represent the broad range of sports at Saint Ignatius High School.
