After two COVID-19 pandemic related postponements, the Cambria County Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2020 was inducted on October 16, 2021 at the Frank J. Pasquerilla Conference Center.
A crowd of nearly 200 people attended as inductees Don Bailey (football coach), Andrew Hawkins (football), Melissa Myers (volleyball/track and field), Ed Sherlock (athletic administration), Brad Stramanak (football) and Jess Zinobile (women’s basketball) were honored.
The CCSHOF also recognized the 2018 Martella’s Pharmacy baseball team that won the All American Amateur Baseball Association Tournament, becoming the first Johnstown franchise to win the event that now has completed 76 tournaments.
The banquet also honored the Northern Cambria High School girls volleyball team for winning the Pennsylvania Class 1A state title in back to back years in 2018 and 2019.
The CCSHOF spotlighted the accomplishments of two wrestlers. Bishop McCort Catholic High School’s Bo Bassett, then a 14-year-old, won a World Cadet Championship in Budapest, Hungary in the summer of 2021. Forest Hills High School senior Jackson Arrington won Pennsylvania championships in his weight class as a junior in 2021 and as a freshman in 2019.
