Blair County Sports HOF host induction banquet


It was a packed house at the Blair County Convention Center on Saturday as the Blair County Sports Hall of Fame introduced their latest inductees.  

Around 900 people were on-hand to help recognize a handful of former and current student athletes, as well as hear from Penn State wrestling coach Cael Sanderson.

This year’s inductees included Altoona’s Tracey (Slogik) Biesecker, Curtis Miller, Vince Nedimyer, Jim Restauri, and Williamsburg’s Bill Kagarise.

The Hall of Fame Team Award was given to the undefeated 1962 Altoona football team and the Lifetime Achievement Award went to Jake Webb.

Altoona also swept the scholarships that were awarded, with seniors Jessica Stevens and Jayvion Queen taking home the honors.
