Caribou Hall Of Fame To Induct 15 Members In 2022; Full List
A new Hall of Fame is set to open
The Caribou Vikings Athletic Hall of Fame is set to induct its inaugural class on June 18 to open the shrine to the history of the schools' athletics programs. This year the Vikings Athletic Hall of Fame will welcome 15 individuals and 1 team as part of the first class in the hall's history.
Caribou High School athletics has a long history and the story will live on forever in the new Hall of Fame. This year's inductees go as far back as the 1940's and feature a mix of female and male athletes along the way. Perhaps most known for being the starting ground for successful businessmen, politicians, and astronauts, Caribou high school athletics have produced Olympians and have been a catapult for the development of future leaders. As we get closer to the induction ceremony in June, we will provide you with a profile of the athletic contributions made by the individuals in the inaugural class. Congratulations to the following GOAT's of Caribou High School Athletics.
