Members of the Ridgewood High School Athletic Hall of Fame are those that have made a lasting impact on the school’s sports program as either student players, coaches, or supporters. Often the student players have continued to influence their chosen sports after high school by ongoing participation in athletics.
Maureen Grieco, 2016 Inductee
In his article for “The Record” on January 6, 2015 announcing Maureen Grieco’s retirement from her position in the athletic department at Ridgewood High School, sports writer Darren Cooper wrote “Maureen Grieco never won a championship for Ridgewood. She didn’t coach. She didn’t play sports. And the school probably won’t put her name in the gym now that she is retired.
But after twenty five and a half years as the schools administrative assistant to the athletic director, her contributions were undeniable.” All true statements, but we now honor Maureen’s outstanding accomplishments for RHS athletics by putting her name up along the main gymnasium wall with all the other inductees to the Ridgewood High School Athletic Hall of Fame making her one of the all time Maroon and White greats.
