Ballard Inducts Inaugural

Athletic Hall of Fame Class

Inductees honored for achievements in athletic careers, service to Ballard

Ballard High School in Louisville has inducted its inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame class at a banquet on January 14, recognizing alumni who achieved outstanding accomplishments in their athletic careers or service to the athletic department at Ballard.

Gary Plock, 1974, was a four-time Kentucky High School state champion.  Only two other high school players accomplished this achievement.  He was a two-time All American in tennis. He was also an NCAA doubles finalist at the University of Texas, and was elected to the Kentucky Tennis Hall of Fame in 1985.

The Ballard Bruins Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes graduates and school supporters who are at least 10 years out of high school.  In addition to acknowledging athletic success, the award also recognizes recipients’ post-Ballard graduation accomplishments and service.
