More Hall of Fame

In yesterday’s article I talked about 4 members of the 2014 Hall of Fame class, and today I will recall some tidbits about the other 4 members of the class.

Gerald Freyer, son of inductee Donald Freyer, accepted the award for his dad.  Donald was a 1940 graduate of Sunman High School and a high scoring center of the Tigers.  High scoring in those days meant 10 points a game, because basketball scores back then seldom got out of the 30-point range.  Gerald recalled how members of a small high school not only had to play basketball, but at halftime they were also part of the band performance.

Christina Kappes Hoff was a member of the original Jac-Cen-Del Lady Eagles team.  She played in the first years of women’s participation in the IHSAA.  Christina was very emotional recalling how the youngest member of a large family was given an opportunity to not only go to school but to play basketball as well.

Rick Thola, a JCD graduate had his plague accepted by his mother.  Rick passed away at a young age while completing a career in the U.S. military services.  Rick’s name still appears on rebounding records at JCD High School.

Bobbie Brandes of Batesville received the Meritorious Service Award for two reasons.  One was for being a charter member of the Ripley County Hall of Fame Board and secondly for her nearly 40 years as financial officer for the Ripley County Tourney.  This was a volunteer position which Bobbie handled while working as a Batesville High School secretary.

Congratulation to the class of 2014!
