NORWICH – The Norwich Sports Hall of Fame announces its 2012 class of inductees.

"Norwich High School has had a long and storied athletic history and the committee feels we have a new class that represents the finest that we have to offer,” said Hall of Fame committee chair, Mark Abbott. “There were many hours of deliberations and discussions, and we sincerely appreciate the nomination forms that we received.
“We would like to encourage people to continue to fill out nomination forms and to include as much statistical data as possible. These forms can be found on the district's athletics website."
The second annual induction dinner will be held at the Canasawacta Country Club in May 2012. The final date has not been set.
