SUNLAND — There were plenty of memories, laughs and tears shed between those that gathered for the Crescenta Valley High Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday evening.
The number of Falcons inductees – be them coaches, athletes or entire teams – in the school's hall grew to 38, as Kerry Zwart-Bell, Lauren Hawthorne, Paul Steinbacher, Dr. Nada Kawar, Dale Sweeney, Darrin Beer, Scott Harper, Dan Berry and the 1986 CIF championship softball team were ushered in Saturday at the Angeles National Golf Club.
"To me, I think this is a great night," said Crescenta Valley High Athletic Hall of Fame committee member and emcee of the night Ken Biermann. "We love the area, we love the school, the people who have come through our school and we like to honor them."
Berry was honored posthumously after starting the Falcons softball program in 1983 and coaching it for 27 years.
