Hall of Fame dinner returning in June
After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Grizzly Scholarship and Hall of Fame induction dinner and ceremony is set to take place at The Grove House in historic downtown Mariposa on Saturday, June 25. Standout Mariposa County High School multi-sport athlete and former National Football League player Cody Wichmann will be inducted into the hall of fame. The special dinner came into existence in 1999, when former student athletes Danny Martinez and Jeff Perkins (Class of 1974) started a scholarship in the names of former MCHS coaches Loyd Hobby and Ed Vegely.
Hobby and Vegely both taught and coached for more than 30 years at the local high school. The Grizzly Hall of Fame induction ceremony honors former Grizzly athletes, coaches, contributors and teams. Cody Wichmann, a class of 2010 graduate, excelled in football and basketball while attending MCHS.
Tickets for the upcoming event will be available for purchase online at Eventbrite beginning next week.
