Hear from emcee, Bud Nameck, the coaches and Keynote Speaker, Mary Hile-Nepfel.

We are excited to have Mary Hile-Nepfel, a former protege of Coach Fitzgerald, as our featured banquet speaker this year. The Banquet is held on November 29th, at North Quest Casino, beginning at 6pm.

Mary graduated from the University of San Francisco in 1981. A two time Academic All-American, she was the first woman to have her uniform number retired at USF.

In 1986, Mary was inducted into the USF Athletic Hall of Fame. She is the leading scorer and rebounder in the history of the USF women’s basketball program. She later served as head coach of the Lady Dons for 19 seasons.

Once again the banquet will be MC’d by long time Spokane broadcaster Bud Nameck.  Bud was hired by Dan Fitzgerald as the Sports Information Director at Gonzaga University.  A two time Sportscaster of the Year in the State of Washington, Bud is one of the founders of The Fitz!
