Hall of Fame weekend will be an all-day affair.

The Ironton High School Athletic Hall of Fame has a full slate of activities scheduled Saturday including the induction of five new members.

Former players and coaches Carl White, Phil Rice and Bill Washburn, All-American gymnast Bobbi Ann (Hunt) Triplett, and former player and team physician Dr. John Leach will be inducted during ceremonies Saturday in the high school cafeteria.

The day will begin with a basketball game between Belpre and Rose Hill Christian at 2 p.m. followed by the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers and the Raceland Lady Rams at 3:45 p.m. and the Fighting Tigers and high-powered Columbus South at 5:30 p.m.

Members of the Hall of Fame class will be introduced before the boys’ game.

Tickets for the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are $15 at the door. However, fans attending the basketball games who want to attend the enshrinement dinner can purchase tickets at the Conley Center doors for $10.

There is no presale of tickets.
