Bishop Watterson Establishes

On September 20, 2013, Bishop Watterson High School entered its inaugural class into the Bishop Watterson Athletic Hall of Fame. The class consists of 12 individuals who distinguished themselves either on the field or through their dedication to the athletic program as a coach or administrator.
The group was honored at halftime of the BWHS vs. Winton Woods football game at Hagely Field on Friday, September 20.
A Mass was held at Our Lady of Peace at 11:30 am on Sunday, September 22, followed by a brunch and Induction Ceremony in Dominican Hall at BWHS.
