Three Generations in the Hall of Fame

first_imgThe Ripley County Basketball Hall of Fame Banquet occurred on April 11 at JCD Elementary School.  I think this marked the first time that the third generation in a family became a member of the Hall of Fame.  Ed Westmeyer, a South Ripley graduate, was one of this year’s class.  His grandfather, Irvin Freudenstein, was a 2007 inductee into the Hall.  Roger Freudenstein, his uncle, was a 2002 inductee into the Hall.  All 3 of these men played either for Versailles or its consolidated partner, South Ripley.  In his speech, Ed said that he was proud to carry on the tradition of excellence in the South Ripley school system.Ed currently works for MainSource Bank in Troy, Ohio.  He is a vice-president at this bank.  In his acceptance speech, he said he was worried because his high school speech teacher was in the audience.  Mary Margaret Moorhead is the speech teacher in question, and she and her husband “Gus” (also a member of the Hall of Fame) are part of that South Ripley tradition of excellence.last_img read more

Salah’s fitness uncertain as Egypt arrive in Russia
