The Orange Lutheran Athletics Hall of Fame celebrates the rich tradition of competition and achievement at Orange Lutheran High School. For every touchdown, three-pointer, goal, home run, or record-breaking sprint today, there was one that laid the groundwork years before. These milestones are the drivers for the ambitious next generation of Lancers. The Athletics Hall of Fame acknowledges the “shoulders of the giants” that the athletes of today stand upon. Since the Hall of Fame’s inception in 2010, athletes have been selected by the Alumni Board on a biennial basis.
