Pasca Cheruiyot Myers was inducted in the Rend Lake College Sports Hall of Fame over the weekend.

In three semesters with the Warriors, she tallied six national titles and 10 All-American distinctions, setting seven team distance records in the process.
Darin Lee, a former Warrior point guard during the 84-85 and 85-86 seasons was placed in the RLC 2019 Hall of Fame class for what he's done since leaving Ina. With 632 wins, Lee ranks 35th all-time and 12th among active Illinois high school coaches. Lee has had 20 teams win 20 or more games in a season. He was nominated to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2011, joining his father David and making the winningest father-son combo in Illinois high school basketball coaching history.
