The Hall’s Roots - Fairmont High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame was approved by the district’s Board of Education in the late 1980s as a way of honoring the tradition of excellence established by Cardinal athletes down through the  decades. Former Fairmont athletic director and legendary Cardinal football coach Tom Mahoney Sr., like with so many of his other contributions to high school athletics throughout the state during his 50-plus years in the educational field, laid the foundation for Fairmont’s Hall of Fame by creating a nine-person selection committee that first met in mid-1989. Through a series of meetings, the committee carefully critiques each and every Hall of Fame nomination. After much discussion, debate and confirmation of the submitted information, the members cast their votes for each year’s group of inductees. After a four-year hiatus, original committee member and charter Hall of Fame member Judy Lohrenz — along with current Fairmont athletic director and grandson of the Hall’s creator, Mat Mahoney — reorganized and rebuilt the committee in 2013 with the intention of restoring a vital part of Cardinal athletics’ rich history. Eight-by-10 photographs of all inductees are displayed in the Hall of Fame section on thesecond floor of the high school gymnasium’s concession lobby.
