The Mariemont High School Athletic Department is accepting nominations for the “Doc” Kusel Athletic Hall of Fame. Named after a long-time athletic director and coach of Mariemont High School, the Athletic Hall of Fame had its initial class in 1971.
The inductees of the annual classes of inductees have their names displayed on the Kusel Stadium concourse, and the inductees’ pictures and accomplishments are displayed in the school’s Hall of Fame Walkway.
Athlete nominees must have graduated in 2011 or earlier, and coaches or administrators must have given ten years or more of service to the school district.
Nominations should be emailed to Athletic Director Tom Nerl or mailed to his attention at Mariemont High School, 1 Warrior Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227. Nomination information should include the the following about the nominee:
