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.
Former athletes who are considered for nomination to the Hall of Fame must have a minimum of five years elapse since their graduation from Mariemont High School. Former athletes, coaches and school administrators are considered for induction, as well as individuals with a long record of service to the athletic department.
Nominations should be emailed to athletic director Tom Nerl at email@example.com or mailed to his attention at Mariemont High School, 1 Warrior Way, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227. Nomination information should include the the following about the individual:
