Since its inception the Oswego High School Athletic Hall of Fame has recognized deserving teams, athletes, coaches and contributors.

Reardon was instrumental in the implementation of Title IX within the Oswego City School District. She started the Girls Athletic Association which fostered fair competition, fellowship and sportsmanship and provided clinics to teach skills and rules. She made substantial contributions to the growth of women’s sports in the district.
Mann guided the Bucs in the late 1990s through 2003. Her teams accounted for tremendous success with a seven-year run of 83 consecutive victories.
Mulcahey was a 1974 graduate of OHS and was most accomplished in football and wrestling. His honors included the 1974 Onondaga League Tournament championships and he was a two-way lineman on the gridiron as he played four seasons of football.
The 1991 boys’ varsity tennis team is the only Oswego squad that won the tournament and Section III titles.
