Dear QO Community,
On behalf of the Quince Orchard High School Athletic Department, I am pleased to announce that we will be inducting our 1st Quince Orchard Athletic Hall of Fame Class this fall on Friday 9/20/19 and Saturday 9/21/19! They will be recognized before our football game against Gaithersburg at 6:00pm on Friday and then at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday.
The purpose of the Quince High School Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor those Quince High School athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters who excelled in their respective sports or coaching/support roles. We will recognize those who helped to bring honor, recognition, distinction and excellence to Quince Orchard High School by their conduct both on and off the field, or court, of competition. This recognition will help maintain the spirit, pride and sense of community as well as serving as a historical account of the great athletic traditions of Quince Orchard High School.
A hall of fame will be constructed on the wall in the main athletic foyer. All athletes selected to receive this honor will have a plaque on the Hall of Fame wall with their name, graduation date and sports they participated in throughout their high school career.
