Tribe of Vikings Hall of Fame seeking nominations
The Augustana Tribe of Vikings is currently looking for nominations for the next class of inductees into the Hall of Fame. Previously, we inducted classes based on graduation years but we are caught up and we are now into an open nomination phase. Any Augustana athlete who graduated prior to 1999 is eligible for nomination.
There have been 14 induction classes into the Hall of Fame, which was started in 1977 by then-director of athletics Vince Lundeen. Six classes were inducted between the years of 1977 and 1982. There was a 20-year hiatus before the next class was inducted in 2002. Currently there are 118 members in the Hall of Fame (109 student-athletes, seven honorary inductees and two teams).
We are looking for any individual that you think is worthy of Hall of Fame recognition. All nominees will be considered. We are in the process of putting the ballot together for the induction ceremony of 2010, which will take place on homecoming weekend, which will be October 8-9. If you would like to nominate somebody, please fill out the following form and return it to:
