Sports and Athletics: Honoring Achievement

Successful athletic departments work diligently to motivate their athletes to be ever more competitive (the purpose of recognition awards). As a result, some teams and some players are such high achievers that they earn more permanent tributes that are often enshrined in a Hall of Fame. These achievements may be commemorated with championship cups, with impressively engraved plaques (complete with team photographs), with a prestige championship banner or with prestigious bronze plaques in the Hall of Fame or on the Wall of Fame. One university honored its past champions with routed aluminum bands and vertical routed panel on the masonry columns circling the Lacrosse field.
