Five former Morgantown High athletes were scheduled to be inducted into the MHS Athletic ‍Hall ‍of ‍Fame at halftime ‍of the Mohigans’ football game against Washington, D.C’s Calvin Coolidge, on Friday.
Inductees were Allan Collins, Raymond “R ay ” Walsh Jr., S. Mitchell “Mitch” St. Clair, Susan Muth Howser and Kevin K. Claudio.
Collins coached the MHS girls’ basketball team from 1986-2010, guiding the Mohigans to five state championships, three state runner-up finishes and a perfect 27-0 season in which they were ranked 23rd nationally, in 1992.
Walsh was a two-time all-state and a two-time all-Big Ten conference football player for the Mohigans from 1948-’50, who went on to WVU.
St. Clair, an all-state socccer player who went on to Alderson-Broaddus, was the NSCA West Virginia Player ‍of the Year and the Gatorade Circle ‍of Champions Player ‍of the Year during his 1996-’98 career at MHS.
Howser was a three-year letter winner and a two-time all-state selection for the MHS girls’ basketball team from 1977-’79. She also lettered in tennis and had a four-year career at WVU.
Claudio was the high scorer for the MHS boys’ basketball team from 1973-’75, and earned all-state and all-Big Ten conference honors. He averaged 17 points per game in his career at Fairmont State, where he received all-WVIAC honors.
The annual banquet was held at the Waterfront Place Hotel before the game, where inductees, or family representatives, addressed the crowd and were presented with plaques.
Plaques were scheduled to be unveiled in a “Wa l l Ceremony” at the MHS cafeteria after the game, the start ‍of which was delayed because the Coolidge bus broke down on the way to Morgantown.
Inductees also receive a lifetime pass to all MHS athletic events and a Morgantown High medallion.
