Alhambra High School on Sunday will induct 11 former players and coaches into the 2010 Athletes Hall of Fame. Among them is Joe Petralia (above) who coached the Moors boys basketball team from 1996 to 2009. He also coached the boys golf team.
Keppel boys basketball coach Hung Duong (pictured below) also will be inducted. The Alhambra alum recently led the Aztecs to their best season in school history, reaching the semifinals of the CIF-SS Division 2A semifinals and an appearance in the CIF State playoffs.
Sunday’s noon luncheon will feature keynote speaker Darrall Imhoff (Class of 1955). Darrall was a member of the 1960 USA Olympic Basketball Team that was just enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in August of 2010.
More than 150 attended the 2008 luncheon and the committee expects to top that figure this year. The location will be at Almansor Court (Lakeview Room, 700 S. Almansor Street, Alhambra).
The cost is $35 per person. You can call 626.570.499 for more information. Checks can be made payable to Alhambra Athletes Reunion and can be sent to Alhambra Athletes Reunion c/o Alhambra Chamber of Commerce (104 South First STreet, Alhambra, CA. 626.282.8481)
