The Toms River Regional School District will hold its fifth Athletic Hall of Fame Induction ceremony tomorrow in the Pine Belt Arena with 16 former athletes, four coaches and four outstanding teams saluted for their past achievements. The ceremony begins at 5pm, is free and open to the public and I will have the pleasure of serving as Master of Ceremonies.

Last but not least are the new Hall of Famers from Toms River East, a group headed up by former Raiders Krista Gerard Cino, Lindsay Wiest Thompson, Frank Edgar, Jake Daubert, Drew Aromando and Mike Conlon, who spent more than 20 very successful seasons as the Boys Swimming Coach. The 1982 Girls Track Team which won a division, county, shore and state sectional championship will take its place in the Hall.

All of the honorees will have their plaques hung inside the Pine Belt Arena along with the other four classes of Hall of Famers which they can proudly show to their children and grandchildren now and in the future. It’s a fitting tribute to those who have worn the maroon and white, blue and gold and blue and black.

The public is invited to Friday’s program which begins at 5pm.
