The Hyatt Regency was the place to be on Thursday as the University of Houston honored nine of its own into the Hall of Honor.
The Class of 2010 included women's basketball guard Chandi Jones, diver Yulia Pakhalina, diving coach Jane Figueiredo, football offensive lineman Bill Bridges and running back Alois Blackwell, baseball centerfielder Ike Lucas, men's basketball forward Larry Micheaux, track and field and cross country head coach Johnny Morriss and golfer Kermit Zarley.
"This class represents the rich tradition and history that is Cougar Athletics," Houston Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades said. "Each of these individuals has made an indelible mark on the University and brought recognition and prestige to the Cougars, our fans and this fine institution. Because of their achievements and accomplishments, all are deserving inductees, and we shall always hold each of them in high esteem in the annals of our history and be grateful for their contributions to our program."
