Welcome to the Portledge School Athletic Hall of Fame!

The purpose of the Hall of Fame is twofold. First, the Athletic Department would like to honor the careers and accomplishment of select extraordinary student-athletes in a public and special way to both recognize their exceptional accomplishments and to inspire our current student-athletes to strive for greatness. Second, Portledge is actively and thoughtfully working to strengthen the ties between alumni and the School. The Hall of Fame aims to accomplish both of these priorities in a celebratory way.

Beginning in November 2018, all Portledge School alumni will be able to nominate others who they believe are worthy of this honor. Eligible alumni are those whose class year is a multiple of five from that year’s graduating class. Therefore, the first alumni eligible for nomination are extraordinary student-athletes who graduated from Portledge in 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, and 2014. The Hall of Fame committee will select 1-3 nominees to be inducted into The Hall each year.

The announcement of the honorees will be made each June at the annual Upper School Athletic Awards Ceremony and posted simultaneously online. The official induction ceremony will take place each September on Founders Day in conjunction with the Community Kickball Game and Fall Reunion at Oyster Bay Brewery. We are hopeful that you, your friends, and fellow alums will return to campus for the day’s festivities each and every year.

  • 2018 Hall of Fame Selection Process

    The 2018 Portledge Athletic Hall of Fame Class is made up of those whose jerseys have been retired and graduated from Portledge at least five years ago. Beginning in November 2018, all Portledge School alumni will be able to nominate others who they believe are worthy of this honor. Eligible alumni are those whose class year is a multiple of five from that year’s graduating class. An Athletic Hall of Fame Selection Committee of five (5) members has been created. The committee will be responsible for vetting nominees to ensure they meet the criteria and exemplify the Portledge pillars of kindness, purpose, honor, and respect. Each spring, the Athletic Department will announce the members of the new Hall of Fame class that will be inducted the following fall as to ensure the connection between the current student-athletes and those being honored. Inductions will take place over Founders Day weekend each year.
