2021 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

The Upstate Lacrosse Foundation, Inc. inducted seven local lacrosse legends and one team at the 2021 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony dinner held on Sunday, October 17th at Traditions at the Links in East Syracuse. It was the twenty-second induction class for the Hall of Fame, and the second under this new Foundation, bringing the total count to 135 individuals, six teams, and three contributors. These individuals, now inducted, are eligible for the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

The inductees included Matt Abbott, Brett Bucktooth, Josh Dennis, Tom Grimaldi, Beth (Ames) Hewitt, Dick Pepper, Carl “Ket” Weist, and the 1971 Cornell Men’s Team.

The Induction Celebration included a 4:00 pm cocktail reception followed by a 5:00 pm dinner, and then the induction into the Hall of Fame at 6:00 pm.
