Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame inducts 8 new members

SPOKANE, Wash. - On October 17, the Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame inducted eight people from around the region who have made significant contributions to regional sports. The ceremony was held at 4 p.m. at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena.

Each inductee was highlighted for their accomplishments through video and storytelling.

Inductees included Sister Madonna Buder (also known as the Iron Nun) and local football stars Steve Gleason and Reuben Mayes.

One of the inductees was KXLY's own Dennis Patchin. His 31 years at KXLY-TV make him the longest-serving sports anchor in the city's history and, combined with his talk radio and play-by-play work, his influence on the sports reporting in the Inland Northwest and how fans viewed their favorite teams has been unrivaled.

The ceremony concluded with the unveiling of the cubicles in conjunction with a reception.
