Warrior Athletic Hall of Fame nominations
Each year, usually at Homecoming, Indiana Tech inducts a new class into the Warrior Athletic Hall of Fame. This special honor was begun to pay tribute to the many great athletes and coaches who have graced the halls, fields, courts, and courses of this great university.

Due to the grand celebration of the 80th Gala during the 2010 Homecoming weekend, the event honoring our inductees has been moved. In fact, there will be an entire weekend of events and activities surrounding the Warrior Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet which will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2011.
This exciting new weekend begins with registration and a tailgate reception in or near the new Warrior Athletic Center beginning at 6:00 p.m. Friday, March 25, followed by a men’s lacrosse match under the lights against Purdue at 8:30 p.m. The fun continues Saturday with alumni games in the morning and women’s lacrosse and softball in the afternoon. After a quick nap, everyone will convene at Bergstaff Place for the Warrior Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet on Saturday night. On Sunday, the weekend concludes with the Second Annual Warrior Run for One in addition to another women’s lacrosse match and an Indiana Tech baseball game.
Please make plans now to attend! It is sure to be a memorable time with many opportunities to show your Warrior pride.
And, now is your chance to nominate someone to be included in the next class of inductees. From today until November 1, nominations will be accepted. Please include the first and last name of the person you are nominating along with as much information about his or her accomplishments as an athlete and student in addition to career success and community involvement.
