Congratulations to Mick Francis and Katie (Pickette) Slagh as the 2018-2019 inductees into the Hopkins Athletics Hall of Fame!

Michael 'Mick' Francis - A longtime coach and teacher at HHS, Francis was chosen as an inductee into the Hopkins Hall of Fame for the tremendous amount of time he has given to HHS students, athletes, and athletic programs. Mick coached many successful teams (specifically in softball and football). After retiring, Mick continues to support HHS athletics helping on the sidelines for the football program.

Katie Pickette - An amazing hurdler, Katie set state records in her respective division in both the 100M hurdles and the 300M hurdles. Katie went on to compete as a heptathlete for Western Michigan University. In 2005, she became WMU's first ever MAC champion in the heptathlon.

Join us February 8th between the boys & girls varsity basketball games in the High School Gym for the formal induction of Mick and Katie into our Hall of Fame. (around 7 pm)
