The Maine Sports Hall of Fame announced Wednesday it will enshrine four new members during a Sept. 15 ceremony at Merrill Auditorium in Portland. The Class of 2024 includes:

Dave Halligan, the longtime boys’ basketball and boys’ soccer coach at Falmouth High, is the first Mainer to earn 500 wins in two high school sports. His 512-162-68 career record in soccer includes 12 state championships.  In basketball, he has 596 career victories and six state championships.

Anna McDougal becomes the first Special Olympian honored by the Hall. She won Alpine gold medals in the Maine Winter Games, and competed at the world championships in Austria, winning silver and bronze. McDougal has published a memoir, “A Look Back,” about growing up with Down syndrome.

Derek Vogel was a Greely High basketball standout, becoming the school’s all-time leading scorer. He went on to play at Westbrook College, becoming Maine’s all-time leading scorer in college basketball with 3,051 points. Vogel played professionally in Europe for nearly a decade.

Kissy Walker played basketball at Cony High and the University of Maine. She has been head coach of the women’s team at Husson University since 1989-90 and is the longest-tenured coach in a single sport in Husson history. She has a 582-296 record, leading the Eagles to 12 conference championships.

The induction ceremony will include members of the Maine Sports Hall of Fame from the Class of 2023. Last year’s event was postponed because of the mass shooting in Lewiston.
