Image of 2009.030.177 - Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Debi Thomas of San Mateo High School, who was inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on May 16, 1990.  Plaque includes image of  Thomas and a brief biography:  "Debi Thomas was America's reigning sports princess of the mid-to-late-1980s.  She began as an athletic 5-year-old who wobbled onto the ice at a San Jose ice rink and emerged with the United States and world championship women's figure skating titles and an Olympic medal.  /  In between she was guided by world-class figure skating tutor Alex McGowan, who worked with her for three or four hours most afternoons at the Redwood City Ice Lodge.  She continued to pursue her skating goals during her years at San Mateo High School, from which she graduated in 1985, and on through her first years of college at Stanford University.  /  The pressures of a full load of pre-med classes and the need for nearly fulltime training led Thomas to tear up her application for the U.S. championships in 1986, but she found she couldn't put her skates aside just yet.  /  Her major titles included the U.S. figure skating titles in 1986 and '88, the world crown in 1986 and the Olympic bronze at Calgary in 1988.  A brief professional ice show tour followed the end of her competitive career after the Olympics, and then she returned to the private life of a Stanford student as the wife of ex-soccer player Brian Vander Hoogen."Plaque and induction was sponsored by The Times of San Mateo.
