On Thursday, September 19, 2019 the Highland Athletic Hall of Fame inducted three new members. The members of the class of 2019 included: Joe Esser, Tony Caster and J.J. Linscheid. The list of accomplishments these three individuals have is extensive, but perhaps most impressive is how humble they were in accepting this honor. A common thread through each of their speeches was how much effort it took from their parents, teammates, and community members to help them achieve such athletic accomplishments. It was only through teamwork and dedication they are where they are today. Congrats, again, 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees! #cardinalpride #HCScardinals Event Photos can be found here: https://www.highland.k12.wi.us/o/highland/page/photographs
