Alumni inducted into new Hall Of Fame
Among the trophies, ribbons, pictures and awards sitting in the trophy case in the gym, a new display resides with the names of four former BV West student athletes. A committee selected these students to be inducted in the new BV West Athletic Hall of Fame. Travis Helgeson, ‘04; Matt Besler, ’05; Ryan Copp, ’05; and Elizabeth Valenti, ‘05, joined the Hall of Fame on Jan. 6 during halftime of the home game against Gardner.
“I took pride in being successful in the classroom as well as on the field,” Besler said. “I was just as competitive playing soccer as I was with my grades. I think I set a good example for my peers with my work ethic, values and leadership.”
The process for selecting new members will be done yearly. This Hall of Fame gives something for current students to strive for in the future. Those who receive this honor set an example for leadership, dedication and success in athletics and academics.
