College of the Redwoods will induct six new members into the school’s athletic hall of fame this weekend, in a ceremony that will be held between the two basketball games on Saturday.

This year’s class includes Eric Woolsey, Bill Lund, Amber Lund, Sarah Harbour, Lou Roval and Naomin Radebaugh Posh.

The ceremony will be held immediately after the men’s basketball game against Feather River, which gets under way at 1 p.m.

There will also be a pre-ceremony social from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
