Catchings Headlines Lady Vols Hall Of Fame Class

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings headlines the latest class of inductees into the Lady Volunteer Hall of Fame.

Catchings played on Tennessee's 1998 undefeated national championship team and won the 2000 Naismith Award as the national player of the year. She won Olympic gold medals in 2004, 2008 and 2012.

The rest of the class announced Wednesday includes former cross-country and track star Valerie Bertrand Bachmann, former NCAA singles tennis runner-up Vilmarie Castellvi and former soccer standout Rhian Wilkinson.

They will be inducted at a November 8 ceremony and will be introduced during Tennessee's November 9 football game with Auburn.

Athletes are eligible for induction 10 years after they have graduated from Tennessee. Administrators may be selected to the Hall of Fame five years after leaving the university.
