PULLMAN – WSU Athletic Director Jim Sterk was among four inducted into the Western Washington University Athletics Hall of Fame on Feb. 6.
Sterk set a WWU Vikings season record for tackles as a linebacker. He received a bachelor’s degree at WWU in 1980, and earned four letters in football and one in basketball. During the 1977 season, Sterk was a first-team NAIA District One football all-star, team captain and MVP in helping the Vikings to the district championship game.
The induction ceremony took place in Bellingham on the WWU campus. The inductees were also honored at halftime of the WWU men’s and women’s home basketball games.
