Olerud, Owen, Yasen Into INW Hall

A brilliant baseball season at Washington State University led John Olerud to a stellar Major League career. Ex-Cougar Olerud is one of five individuals to be inducted into the Inland Northwest Sports Hall of Fame on Oct. 25 during festivities that begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. Joining him are two coaching legends and two record-setting women athletes. North Idaho College wrestling coach John Owen and Lewis-Clark State baseball mentor Ed Cheff will be joined in the Hall of Fame by basketball star Tammy Tibbles from Gonzaga University and the late Corissa Yasen, an All-American in track at Purdue/Mike Vlahovich, SR.

Question: I can't think of a stronger group of inductees for the Inland Northwest Hall of Fame. Can you?
