Hall of Fame
The first University of Guam Triton Athletics Hall of Fame reception was in Spring 2017, held in conjunction with a UOG Men’s Basketball game. Five former UOG athletes were honored with admission to the first class of the UOG Triton Athletics Hall of Fame. The second Hall of Fame class was inducted on Oct. 28, 2018.
The event is hosted annually by the Triton Athletics Department and will hopefully
become a banquet in future years and be part of a Homecoming Event for the University.
The University of Guam Athletics Department recently held its first Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Reception at the UOG Calvo Field House.
Honored were six former athletes and coaches from years past who embody the Triton spirit and continue to perpetuate the University’s legacy.
Susan Lupola, who played basketball at the University of Guam, said that over the years, she’s seen a lot of growth in both the facilities and programs in the Athletics department. Being a former student athlete, she’s excited for all that’s to come for the next generation of Tritons.
“Sports has always been a part of my life,” she said. “Just having the program available for all of the athletes was a wonderful opportunity. I’m so glad to see that UOG Athletics has been revived. The accomplishments that these current teams are having right now are music to my ears.”
UOG Athletics Director Doug Palmer said that has has previously established Halls of Fame at other universities. The unique aspect of creating a Hall of Fame on Guam is the diversity of sports to choose from and the overwhelming history and knowledge shared by the community.
“This is a very special moment because it is the first class,” Palmer said. “All of you definitely deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. The great thing about UOG is that is has a rich history of athletics. You’ve got to have a history. If you don’t, you really don’t have anything.”
