Pirate sports fans are getting a chance to celebrate their own.
Peninsula College will induct four individuals — Mark Amaral, Curt Bagby, Kent Brauninger and the late William Quenette — along with the 1999-2000 men’s basketball team into its Pirate Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, June 2.
The induction ceremony — the college’s third — will be held in the banquet room at The Cedars at Dungeness golf course, 1965 Woodcock Road, Sequim.
“Our committee came up with a great new class of inductees, representing men’s and women’s sports over a span of 37 years of our athletic history,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “I am personally very happy for Mark, Curt, Kent and the family of coach Quenette.”
Ross added, “It will also be great to see the players from the 1999-2000 team again. They had quite a run, winning our first ever league championship and posting the most wins ever for a Pirate basketball team. It’s also cool that they’ve mostly stayed in contact for all these years.”
The event begins with a social time at 5 p.m. with the program starting at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments and hors devours will be served, along with a no-host bar.
Inductees are asked to reserve space for themselves and their immediate family members by contacting Ross at email@example.com.
Admission is free for inductees, families, friends and guests as space allows.
In 2016, the Peninsula College Athletics Hall of Fame inducted the NWAC champion 2010 men’s soccer team, the late Jim Lunt, Rose Gala Moorhead, Howard “Scooter” Chapman and Jim Clem. In 2014, the year the Pirate Hall of Fame was founded, the college inducted the WAC champion 1970 men’s basketball team, Jerry Allen, the late Art Feiro, Kathy Murphy-Carey and the late Dr. Wally Sigmar.
