FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Sports Hall of Fame announced their inductees for the 2018 Class.
Three Athletes, a moment, and an event will be honored in the 12th Hall of fame class.
Dolly Lefever will be honored as both an athlete and for her shining moment.
The Anchorage Mountain Climber climbed the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.
She reached the top of Mt. Everest in Asia, Aconcagua in South America, Kilimanjaro in Africa, Elbrus in Europe, and Vinson in Antarctica.
When she got to the top of Australia's Mt. Kosciuszko in 1993, she became the first American woman, and only third woman ever, to climb the Seven Summits.
Joining Lefever will be Volleyball Coach Virgil Hooe.
Hooe has won more than 400 matches, 17 conference championships, 14 region titles, and 11 State Titles.
He also founded the Midnight Sun Volleyball Club team to help athletes get recruited to college teams.
Holly Brooks will also be inducted this year.
Holly is a former member of the US Ski Team who competed in the Olympics Twice, in 2010 and 2014.
She qualified for her first National Meet as part of the APU Ski Team in 2006.
She also owns seven top-10 World Cup Finishes and two national championships.
The Event that will be enshrined this year is the Arctic Winter Games.
The games were founded in 1969 and hosts athletes from Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Russia.
Alaska has hosted the event 6 times, most recently here in Fairbanks in 2014.
