FAYETTEVILLE Stacy Lewis and Pat Bradley highlight the 2014 University of Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor class.
Lewis, who is the world's No. 1 ranked female golfer, was a four-time all-American and won the NCAA individual national title as a senior in 2007. Bradley, a four-year basketball standout, ranks fifth in school history with 1,765 points scored and finished his career as the SEC's career leader with 366 made 3-pointers.
The UA is the second hall to already enshrine Lewis, 29. She was also inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
Nine former athletes or coaches will be inducted into the UA hall in September. Other former athletes to be inducted include Kenoy Kennedy, Freddie Childress, Pat Morrison and Louis Ramsay (football), Shameka Christon (women's basketball) and Graham Hood (men's track). Robert Cox, who coached the Razorbacks' men's tennis team for 26 years, will also be inducted.
The UA will recognize this year's class with an induction ceremony Sept. 6 at the Holiday Inn in Springdale.
