The UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame will induct eight new members tonight in a ceremony on campus. These new Hall of Fame members will be honored at halftime of tomorrow’s football game against the University of Arizona.
This year’s inductees are: Julie Adams (softball), Jamie Dantzscher (women's gymnastics), Baron Davis (men's basketball), Natalie Golda (women's water polo), Chris Henderson (men's soccer), Adam Krikorian (water polo), Mike Marsh (track & field) and Wendell Tyler (football).
Each of the inductees distinguished themselves at UCLA and afterwards. Adams, Dantzscher, Golda, Henderson, Krikorian and Marsh were all a part of teams that won NCAA championships while Dantzscher, Golda and Marsh have all won Olympic medals. Of course, Adam Krikorian has coached the USA Women’s Water Polo team to consecutive golds. After leaving UCLA, Baron Davis went on to become an NBA All-Star while Wendell Tyler won a Super Bowl in 1985 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
Congratulations to each of these Bruin legends!
