The Yowell Hall of Fame was created to honor and give lasting recognition to those individuals who—through participation, support or interest—have made outstanding contributions to the Wheaton College athletics as well as sports and society. The individuals and teams enshrined have not only brought recognition, honor, distinction, and excellence to Wheaton and its intercollegiate athletics program, but they also have continued to demonstrate in their lives the values imparted by intercollegiate athletics.
