The 2020 Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame class is still going to have its day in the spotlight, but that day will be in 2021 rather than 2020.
The Sports Hall of Fame committee has canceled the 2020 banquet, which would have taken place in September, due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the 2020 class will be honored alongside the 2021 class during the 2021 banquet, which is scheduled for Sept. 22, 2021.
Meanwhile, steps are being taken to honor this year’s class, which consists of eight individuals and one team, in a timely fashion. The 2020 banquet program will be printed and available in late August/early September. The 2020 wall mural will be designed and placed on the Sports Hall of Fame wall at Angel of the Winds Arena in late August/early September. And a video will be produced to recognize the 2020 induction class and will be released in September.
