DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Alabama Sports and Adventure Hall of Fame celebrated its 2023 inductees with a dinner at Dothan Country Club.

Last year was the organization’s inaugural class.

Chairman Mike Schmitz created the ASA to honor those that make a positive impact in their communities by staying active.

One of this year’s eight inductees, Evelyn Holmes-Smith, is a decorated wrestler and a sophomore at Enterprise High School.

“It’s really great knowing that all my hard work was able to get me here,” Holmes-Smith said. “Also, promoting girls’ wrestling is one of my biggest goals so it also just helps me achieve that.”

This year’s inductees are:

  • Charlene Commerford
  • Kasey Cooper
  • Mike Culbreth
  • Evelyn Holmes-Smith
  • Mary Morgan Howell
  • Team Medeiros Boxing
  • Jatin Patel
  • Joe Varner

The induction ceremony takes place at the Dothan Civic Center on April 25.

Robyn Benincasa will be the keynote speaker at the event.
