The deadline to submit nominations of candidates for the 2020 White Plains High School Athletics Hall of Fame induction event has been finalized as Tuesday, March 24.
Anyone who has previously been nominated but not inducted does not have to be resubmitted. Those candidates automatically will be reconsidered.
