Alumnae

Athletic Hall of Fame

In 1972, Title IX of the Education Amendment was enacted. Until that time, athletes at Ellis played opponents from fewer than ten area schools in field hockey, softball, tennis, and baseball.

Today, as a member of the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL), The Ellis Tigers are playing—and winning—at the state level under the leadership of Athletic Director Shayla Scott.

In 2000 the Ellis Athletic Hall of Fame was created by then Athletic Director Genny Kozusko. Nominees made by any Ellis graduate are welcomed and reviewed on an annual basis by the Athletic Department and the Ellis Alumnae Association. Once each year, 1-3 alumnae who were outstanding athletes are inducted into the Ellis Hall of Fame during the Ellis Reunion. This honor recognizes and thanks them for their efforts on the fields of play, by their alma mater and by every current and future Ellis athlete.
