The 2017-2018 class of inductees will be enshrined at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 21, in the school gym before the varsity wrestling match vs. Delone Catholic. A reception will be held before the induction ceremony at 6 p.m. in the high school’s Integrative Learning Center.

The Hanover Athletic Booster Club, the Alumni Association of Hanover and Eichelberger High Schools and the Hanover Public School District partnered in 2015 to create the hall of fame to honor athletes, teams, coaches and contributors from both Hanover and Eichelberger high schools. A new class is inducted every two years. 

After a nomination process that was open to the community, an 11-member selection committee of current coaches, Booster Club and Alumni Association representatives and community members selected the 10 honorees.
