Since the initial class of eight original members in 1991, another 26 classes of inductees have joined the Athletics Hall of Fame and there are now 181 individuals, one award, and 28 teams that have been honored.

The Class of 2019 will be inducted during Homecoming Weekend this fall, with the exact date to be determined.
