BEND, OR -- Two local high school athletes are being recognized by the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame for their work on and off the field.


Bend High grad Jenavieve Lustyik plays volleyball and tennis, and is very involved in the community, including with the rotary's Interact Club, Ted-X, Bethlehem Inn, and St. Charles. She'll attend U of O in the fall. She tells KBND News that growing up with a single mother taught her the importance of teamwork, "Sports really helped me out, making friends and getting involved in high school, and keeping me focused on my grades which helps benefit me, getting into college."


Cole Little, Culver High's valedictorian, is on the football, baseball, and wrestling teams, and will attend Oregon Tech. He designed a website to educate teens. "My website is about  how texting and driving can take away the lives of people too early. I wanted to bring awareness to that so people would get off the phone while they're driving."
The two will be honored, along with four other students, by the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame at its annual induction ceremony, in September, with awards delivered by former Blazer announcer Bill Schonley. They also each receive a $3,000 scholarship from the MacTarnahan Family Trust. Joel Roth, with the Hall of Fame, says it's not easy to earn this type of recognition, "They have to go through quite a process to submit all the information about themselves, including financial need, and a list of all their accomplishments in the classroom, on the field and in the community."
