Sports Hall Distributes Fund to Leadville Sports Teams
On July 22, the Leadville/Lake County Sports Hall of Fame (SHF) presented Leadville Nordic and the Skyline Youth Baseball League, each with a $500 check to be used towards team uniforms. The SHF raised the money through their local races series this summer, which includes the Fish Hatchery 5k, Turquoise Lake Half Marathon and Firecracker 5k.
In other Leadville/Lake County Sports Hall of Fame (SHF) news, board member Greg Sandoval announced that a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Lake County High School and the non-profit sports organization has been approved by both parties and will be signed this week. In short, the agreement will allow the SHF to establish and manage the Wall of Champions and manage the track and field record board, athletic banners, and all-state football trophy.
“This partnership has taken about three years to materialize,” stated Sandoval, “but with a newly constructed school building, it comes at a convenient and crucial time period.”
