Description Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Elizabeth Rizzo Covey of Sacred Heart Prep who was inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame on June 19, 2008. Plaque includes image of Rizzo Covey and a brief biography: "If long-distance shooting is your cup of basketball tea, Elizabeth Rizzo Covey had to be at the focus of your attention in the early 1990s. She was in the vanguard of what would become the dominant girls' hoops program in San Mateo County History. A four-sport athlete at Sacred Heart Prep, she was California's Division V (small school) basketball player of the year in 1993 when the Gators won a state title with a 37-0 record. She went on to a four-year career playing at UC-Berkeley."
