The Mount de Sales Academy Athletic Department will induct six individuals and a team into its Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday, Nov. 10.
The Athletic Hall of Fame seeks to recognize the outstanding achievements of past MDSA coaches and athletes with a new class inducted every two years.
The 2012 MDSA Hall of Fame Inductees are:
Coach Hank Hofmeister, Basketball; Dr. Cynthia Clark '02, Swimming and Softball; Sharon Birkett '86, Basketball; Jenny Held Miller '89, Basketball and Lacrosse; Dr. Linda Justice Teodosio '79, Basketball and Lacrosse; Susan Devlin Switzer '60, Basketball; and the 1985 Lacrosse Team.
A highlight of the night will be distinguished guest O.J. Brigance, a former Raven who is currently senior advisor to the team's player development department.
Brigance was a championship football player in both the Canadian and the National Football Leagues. He joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2000 where he played in 16 games and won a Super Bowl ring.
He was diagnosed in 2007 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a motor neuron disease, and is determined to help win the fight against it.
The event will be held at Mount de Sales Academy, 700 Academy Road, Catonsville, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. For more information or to register for the event, contact Clare Audy, assistant athletic director, at 410-744-8498, ext. 163, or firstname.lastname@example.org.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
