Forest Grove announces Hall of Fame class for 2014
Forest Grove High School has announced the 2014 class of inductees into its athletic Hall of Fame.
The group is made up of four athletes, one coach and Citizens for a New Athletic Stadium, the group led by Carl Heisler and Tim Schauermann that helped build the Vikings a new football stadium in 1984.
Two Forest Grove softball players DeeAnn Peewee Hetzel Henderson (Class of 86) and Teena Shull Nelson (Class of 87) will be honored after guiding the Vikings to back-to-back appearances in the Class AAA state quarterfinals.
David Schiffer (Class of 88) was a state high jump champion as a senior and also placed third in the triple jump and sixth in the long jump that year.
Robb Bauer (Class of 80) won a state title and set a state meet record in the 100-yard backstroke as a senior, and also helped the Vikings to a first-place finish in the 200 medley relay.
Elma Hewitt will also be inducted to the athletic Hall of Fame after a teaching and coaching career that spanned three decades. She was instrumental in the implementation of competitive girls sports at Forest Grove prior to Title IX.
The individuals will be recognized on Friday, Oct. 3, during halftime of Forest Groves football game against North Salem, then officially inducted into the Hall of Fame at a banquet on Saturday, Oct. 4, at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course.
