Hammond Sports Hall of Fame


Anderson-Peterson Family Distinguished Athlete Award recipients

Also, during this year’s program, the Hammond Sports Hall of Fame will present its 31st annual Anderson-Peterson Family Distinguished Athlete Award to two 2021 high school graduates of Hammond schools who depict athletic achievement, academic excellence, dedication, citizenship and school & community service. This year’s recipients are Courtney Blakely of Bishop Noll and Joshua Lamb of Morton.

Blakely, a 4-year letter winner, completed her standout high school basketball career as Noll’s all-time leading scorer with 2,234 points. She also led all high school scorers in Indiana as a senior, earned Associated Press all-state honors, was named to the Indiana All-Star team and received the John Wooden Award. Away from the basketball court, she achieved a 3.5 grade point average, while being active in Student Council, Women’s Empowerment Group, Math Club and as a Student Ambassador. She also volunteered monthly at the Gethsemane Baptist Church food pantry. She has continued her education and basketball career at Middle Tennessee State University.

Lamb earned nine varsity letters competing on Morton football, swimming and baseball teams. As a senior, he earned team MVP recognition in baseball, achieved Academic All-state honors in football and was Salutatorian of his Morton graduating class with a 4.305 grade point average. Within his community, he has engaged in the Hessville Commerce and Community Creative (HC3) Clean-up initiative. He attends Marian University on a baseball scholarship.
