WUHS Hall of Fame inductions are Dec. 18

West Union High School will hold its 2015-16 Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremonies on Dec. 18 when the Dragons will play host to the Lynchburg Clay Mustangs. This year’s inductions will include seven individuals and two teams.

The WUHS varsity boys cross-country teams from 1996 and 1997 will be the first-ever teams to be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame. It has been 20 years now since Coach Pat Dubbs and his squad of David Abbott, Matt Armstrong, Greg McClanahan, Eric Miranda, Josh Miranda, Ryan Phipps, Deron Sizemore,and Mark Willett became the first team in school history to reach the state level of competition.

Being inducted as individuals from those successful teams will be Abbott, Armstrong, and Sizemore. Abbott (Class of 1998) was a regional qualifier in both cross-country and track and set two high school records. Armstrong (Class of 1999) qualified for the state cross-country meet in 1998. Sizemore (Class of 1999) set four WUHS records and placed 11th in the 400 meter dash at the state meet.

Coach Pat Dubbs will also be an inductee on Dec. 18. Dubbs was a teacher and coach at West Union for 13 years. In addition to the two cross-country teams that went to state, Dubbs coached a pair of varsity boys basketball teams that won sectional championships.

Another track standout from the Class of 1998 will also be inducted, Giovanni Stout. Stout holds two WUHS records and placed 10th in the long jump at the state track meet,

Also, Erica Willett will become the first female member of the Athletic Hall of Fame. Willett set three WUHS track records and qualified for state in the high jump in two consecutive seasons.

The final inductee spent almost his entire educational career at West Union. Dennis Sizemore (Class of 1975) had an outstanding cross-country, basketball, baseball, and track career at WUHS where he set several school records. After college, Sizemore returned to WUHS where he spent 30 years as a teacher, principal, and coach, coaching several regional qualifiers and three state qualifiers in cross-country and track.

The Athletic Department at West Union High School invites everyone to the Dec. 18 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
