Plaque includes image of  Athanacio and a brief biography:  "Karen Athanacio was a San Mateo County prep softball pioneer.  In the early 1980s, she became the first in a long line of local fast-pitch specialists who dominated hitters with year-in-year-out regularity.  Athanacio, who attended Hillsdale High in San Mateo, produced an overall, four-year 89-9 record as a prep.  Her Hillsdale teams won two Central Coast Section softball championships.  She was so predictably fast - and her pitches moved around with such startling ease - that no-hitters were common for her.  Shutouts were the norm.  She later attended Texas A&M on a softball scholarship."
