2013 HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
(April 8, 2013) Walnut, CA.. TThe Mt. SAC Relays Selection Committee is proud to announce the 2013 Hall of Fame Inductee's. Many of the greatest athletes the world has ever known, in all events, have made the annual pilgrimage to Walnut, California every April. The individual event statistics are a veritable "Who's Who" of Olympians, World Champions and World and National record holders. However one event seems to really shine at Mt. SAC in terms of who competes and takes part and that event is the Men's 110 Meter Hurdle race. The talent that assembles each and every year is nothing short of amazing and this year we are proud to highlight and induct a number of men who have competed in that event and made it such a crowd pleaser.
