Greater Atlanta Christian will honor former Spartan standout Cindy Brogdon at Tuesday’s home basketball games with Lovett for her upcoming induction into the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame. She will be honored during halftime of the 7:30 p.m. varsity boys game.
Brogdon’s Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame induction is Friday. She will be inducted in this year’s class alongside Duluth grad George Rogers, Ted Turner, John Smoltz, Antonio McKay and Corky Kell.
Brogdon, a 1975 GAC grad, was four-time state tournament MVP for GAC, which she led to three state titles and one state runner-up finish. She was the first GAC athlete to have a jersey retired and is a member of the GAC Athletics, Women’s Basketball and Gwinnett County Sports halls of fame. She was a scholarship player and All-American at Mercer University before transferring to the University of Tennessee, where she was a two-time All-American. She also was a silver medalist in the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.
Brogdon is currently head of the PE department and golf coach at Northview High School in Fulton County.
