LOGAN, Utah – Utah State will be honoring seven former former female student-athletes and administrators in its 2023 Hall of Fame class.

USU Athletics announced their 2023 Hall of Fame class, the 20th class in USU HOF history, on Wednesday, January 18.

“We are excited to celebrate and memorialize the successes of this group of inductees,” said USU Interim Director of Athletics Jerry Bovee. “These women are pioneers and role models. They have helped pave the way for the opportunities afforded our current student-athletes. We salute and honor the legacy these women have left at Utah State and beyond.”

The Utah State athletic department has arranged for ‘A Celebration of Women in Sport with Utah State Athletics,’ to be held the night prior to the Hall of Fame ceremony. This gala is intended to ‘honor 50 years of female student-athletes at USU’. Keynote speakers and live panels will be held with an eye toward raising funds for all female Aggie student-athletes.
