Hall of Fame
The Notre Dame Academy Athletics Hall of Fame was established to recognize outstanding achievement and significant contributions in athletics at NDA.
Athletes who have graduated from Notre Dame Academy at least five years prior to their nomination, coaches, and administrators are eligible for nomination.
Selection shall be based primarily, but not solely, on an individual's athletic accomplishments at Notre Dame. The person shall be chosen on the basis of playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, charcter and her contribution to her team(s) and school community. Nominees who have distinguished themselves through college and/or other athletics, professional sports, or civic involvement will also be considered.
To be considered for induction, coaches and administrators must have made significant contributions to the success of Notre Dame Athletics and promoted sound educational values to athletes.
2023 Hall of Fame Dinner & Induction Ceremony
April 27, 2023
This past spring, Notre Dame Academy welcomed 19 inductees – 15 athletes and 4 coaches – into the Athletics Hall of Fame, honoring them with a dinner and induction ceremony. All 15 athletes graduated from Notre Dame Academy between 2008 and 2012 and were recognized for their achievements as part of the 2009 State Championship basketball team. One inductee, Kathleen Colpoys ‘08, was also honored for her contributions to the NDA volleyball and tennis teams. Three of the four coaches were inducted for their contributions to the 2009 State Championship basketball team, and one coach was recognized for her contributions to the tennis program.
Hall of Fame inductions are held biennially (alternating years with the Alumnae Association Service Award) for graduates whose athletic achievements while at Notre Dame Academy left a mark to which others can aspire. Nominees who have distinguished themselves through college and/or other athletics, professional sports, or civic involvement are be considered, as are coaches and administrators who have contributed significantly to the advancement of athletics at NDA. Selection is made by the Hall of Fame committee.
