Hall of Fame Class of ’14 draws near record voters

December 6, 2013

Alaska Sports Hall of Fame LogoA total of 1,600 people voted for the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2014, the third highest vote total in the eight-year history of the Hall.

Last year 1,750 people voted. The record is 2,000.

“We received a great deal of positive feedback from the public about the voting process,” said executive director Harlow Robinson. “The inductee bios have added an educational component to the process. A lot of school groups voted as a school project. It’s given young Alaskans an opportunity to learn about some of our legends and old Alaskans a chance to reflect on how accomplished our state’s athletes are.”

The Class of ’14 will be announced Monday.
