The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) is pleased to announce the five (5) newest members of the SSHF. The Class of 2022 features three athletes and two builders. The 2022 Class will join the 2021 Class that was announced in May of 2021 and be installed together at the 53rd Induction Ceremony on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at the Conexus Arts Centre.

After a standout career as a pole vaulter at the University of Saskatchewan, Kelsie Hendry won two national titles and went to two Commonwealth Games where she won a bronze medal in 2010. She also competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Harry Jerome was born in Prince Albert and set seven world records as a sprinter. He was a three-time Olympian, winning a bronze medal in the 100 metres in Tokyo in 1964. At 19, Harry ran a world-record time in the 100 metres at the Olympic trials in Saskatoon.

Rueben Mayes had an incredible football career. He was the National Football League’s Offensive Rookie of the Year and he was a two-time Pro Bowler. He is the only Canadian-born player in the College Football Hall of Fame after setting 15 records at Washington State. He was the first Canadian to be nominated for the Heisman Trophy as the best player in NCAA Division I football.

Toni Beerling is a Level 5 international athletics official, the highest level attainable. She has officiated for 45 years first from her home in Saskatoon and then provincially, nationally and internationally. She has officiated at a world track and field championship, as well as Pan Am Games and Commonwealth Games.

Growing up in the 1930s with spina bifida, Bill Brownridge channeled his love of sport, particularly hockey, into areas where he could excel, as an author and a painter. For more than 70 years Bill has captured the spirit of hockey in those two mediums. He has written five children’s picture books and is an internationally recognized artist. He designed the logo of the Calgary Centennials junior hockey team, one iteration of the Calgary Flames uniforms and was the official artist of the 1988 Calgary Olympic bid. His paintings were a catalyst for the creation of Hockey Day in Canada.

The previously announced 2021 class features athletes Justin Abdou (Moose Jaw – Wrestling), Rod Boll (Fillmore – Trapshooting), Colette Bourgonje (Porcupine Plain – Athletics and Cross-Country Skiing), Kaylyn Kyle (Saskatoon – Soccer), and Lyndon Rush (Humboldt – Bobsleigh). Shannon Miller (Tisdale – Hockey) joins the 2021 class as builder and the 2000-01 University of Regina Cougars Women’s Basketball Team and the 2013 Saskatchewan Roughriders Football Club are being inducted as teams.
