San Gorgonio high school inducted four former athletic icons into its Hall of Fame Saturday, with swimmer Kelly Goddard-Sautel, runner Richard Adams, soccer player Lindsi Parnell-Wake and former equipment manager Keith Porterfield all being honored.
The foursome join nearly 70 Spartan athletic legends in the Hall of Fame, which was founded during the 1993-94 season. Goddard-Sautel, who graduated in 1997, was a four-year all-CIF swimmer and holds the school record in the 50-meter freestyle. She also saw at UNLV, where she qualified for the NCAA meet during her career.
Both Adams and Parnell-Wake graduated in 1999. Adams was an all-SAL runner for three years and qualified for the CIF finals in the 300 hurdles as a senior before going on to run at Cal State Fullerton and Purdue. Parnell-Wake was an all-CIF player as a junior and senior, set the single-season goals record with 46 as a freshman and the career goals record with 113.
Porterfield recently retired as San G’s equipment man after 28-plus seasons on the job. Starting in 1981, Porterfield was a very important person behind the scenes at San G before retiring this past spring to spend more time with his family.
