The Union Springs Central School Athletic Hall of Fame was chartered in the fall of 2008. Its purpose is to recognize the accomplishments of the inductees and develop pride in the rich athletic traditions of the district. These role models exemplify Union Springs commitment to athletic excellence, qualities of leadership, and sportsmanship. Through recognition, the inductees and their families will be reconnected with Union Springs Central School providing current student athletes with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the history of Union Springs Athletics.
