Three veteran coaches highlight the 2015 Port Huron Sports Hall of Fame induction class.
Mary Kay Baribeau (girls’ tennis) and Daryel McCarrel (hockey) along with Jacqueline “Jackie” Jeffery (women’s basketball) will be among the six individuals inducted into the Hall of Fame Oct. 24 at St. Clair County Community College.
The rest of the 2015 class includes Randy Shagena, Marshall “Duke” Campbell and David Forstner, along with the 1970 SC4 men’s golf team.
George Goeddke, a former offensive lineman at Notre Dame and with the Denver Broncos in the American Football League and National Football League, is the guest speaker at this year’s induction ceremony.
Baribeau turned the Port Huron Northern girls’ tennis program into one of the best in the state.
Under McCarrel, Northern hockey has enjoyed impressive postseason success.
Jeffery will be returning home for the banquet. She was the first women’s basketball coach at SC4 during the 1975-76 school year. The Skippers won five Michigan Junior College Athletic Association titles in eight years under Jeffery.
Shagena and Campbell both played hockey for McCarrel, but enjoyed success on the collegiate level in different sports. Shagena excelled in baseball at Aquinas College and Campbell was a special teams football standout at Michigan State University.
When it came to weightlifting on the state and national level, Forstner was a force as he won numerous titles.
Robert “Sam” Kromer coached the Skipper golf squad, which consisted of players Herb Hildebrand, John Traub, Bob Andrews, Bob Baker and Ken Balfour. The Skippers won the Michigan Community College Athletic Association title in 1970 and placed in the Top 10 at the nationals.
This year’s Malloy Award winner is Miles “Mike” Benedict, the former director of the Port Huron International Silver Stick Hockey Tournament.
The Achievement Award winners are the Port Huron High powerlifting state championship team, the Big Reds’ track/cross-country runner Rachel Bonner, powerlifting state champion Kelsie Chapman of Port Huron High, Port Huron Northern soccer player Hannah Jones, Port Huron High’s three-sport standout Ravin Randall, along with Northern pole vaulters Mackenzie Shell and Ryan Hunt.
