Athletic Hall of Fame induction to take place every two years
The Watervliet Hall of Fame Committee has decided to alter its format to a biennial (every other year) platform. The next Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place in the fall of 2016 (even numbered years), rather than this upcoming fall. It should be noted that this decision was voted upon during the committee's annual meeting, and was a unanimous consensus among the committee members. It should be also noted that the decision had nothing to do with the eligibility or integrity of the nominees; rather, it was based upon numerous factors that focused on making the induction process and ceremony better.
