Some of the state’s most recognized names in sports ranging from football to softball, and the memory and recognition of a collegiate cross country team are among newest class of inductees into the Wyoming Sports Hall of Fame.
Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss, longtime girls softball coach Ray Sanchez, the sibling trio of Corte, Ryan and Megan McGuffey are part of the class. So are the eight members of the University of Wyoming cross country team who died in an automobile accident in 2001, along with coach Jim Sanchez and the student-athletes who finished the season.
The Athlete of the Year goes to former UW football player Chris Prosinski, and the Lifetime Achievement Award goes to longtime UW administrator and radio color analyst Kevin McKinney.
This group will be enshrined on June 25 at the Parkway Plaza Hotel and Convention Center in Casper.
