LCS Athletic Hall of Fame Welcomes New Members  
On December 29 during the Pat Grasso Holiday Tournament the LCS Athletic Hall of Fame welcomed two new individual members and one team.  
Kellisue Loftus Friedman, Class of 1984, was inducted as an individual athlete. She was a valuable contributor to the LCS soccer, volleyball and softball teams and was also a member of the Ski Club.  She carried her love for athletics into her post-graduate career by majoring in Kinesiology and playing soccer for SUNY Brockport.  She went on to work as an exercise physiologist for Johns Hopkins University and coached soccer at an all-girls school in Baltimore, Md.  She went on to obtain her degree as a Physician’s Assistant and has worked in urgent care and internal medicine.  
Duane Trask was inducted as a contributor to the LCS athletic program. A 1964 graduate of LCS, Duane or his wife Debbie, also an LCS alumna, attended every single athletic competition that one of their four children participated in.  Duane has driven buses for countless athletic trips, has worked in our maintenance department, worked in the concession stand, helped build props for colorguard shows, assisted in the conversion of our first marching band equipment bus, and still contributes to the athletic department by selling tickets and chaperoning games.  
We also inducted the 1958 football team. This team was the first of Coach Grasso’s two consecutive undefeated Tri-Valley championship teams. Members of the team that were able to attend the ceremony were Charles Pierce, Ronald Whitmore, David Wikoff, Robert Wikoff, Ralph Wright, and Roger Wright.  Other team members were Donald Anderson, Elvin Bookhout, Ralph John Brightman, Allan Davidson, Michael Dunn, Richard Elderkin, William Gravelin, David McLaud, Donald Peet, Francis Toombs, William Webster, and Richard Whitmore.  
 
Congratulations to all of our new inductees and thank you to the cafeteria staff, the buildings and grounds staff, Mrs. Wenck, Mrs. Francisco, the members of the Hall of Fame Committee and everyone who helped to make this a wonderful evening for all involved.
