The Conway High School Athletic Department has announced the formation of the Wampus Cat Sports Hall of Fame.

Each year, six inductees will be chosen, in a nod to the six legs of a Wampus Cat – four to run at the speed of light and two to fight with all its might.

According to Conway Athletic Director Clint Ashcraft, “We think this will be a great way to honor some very deserving athletes and coaches, while helping raise awareness of Conway’s rich athletic history. We are looking forward to developing a hall of fame that provides a way to remember many deserving Wampus Cat legends.”

The process will begin with members of the Wampus Cat Booster Club voting on a list of possible inductees. The board of the Wampus Cat Sports Hall of Fame will then use the results of the Booster Club balloting to pick the final class of inductees.

Added Ashcraft, “We think that being able to vote on the hall of fame class each year will be yet another great benefit to members of our Booster Club.”

Booster Club voting will occur during the fall, with the first induction banquet to be held in the spring of 2019.

All proceeds raised from the Wampus Cat Sports Hall of Fame will be used to help support Conway athletics.
