Peoria Hall Of Fame Announces Award Winners

Local Sports

The Morton girls basketball state champs will be well-represented at the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame dinner this spring.

Leading scorer Brandi Bisping was named the Tri-County female athlete of the year and coach Bob Becker named male coach of the year by the GPSHOF board on Wednesday. The Lady Potters won their third straight state championship last march.

Undefeated state wrestling champ Jacob Warner of Washington was named the male athlete of the year. And softball coach Denee Menzione, who took runner-up East Peoria to its first state title game in June, is the top female coach in 2017.

The foursome will be honored along with the yet-to-be-named hall of fame class at the GPSHOF banquet on April 7 at the Peoria Civic Center.
