Description Nancy Dinges Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Plaque commemorating Nancy Dinges of Hillsdale High School being inducted into Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame, sponsored by The San Mateo County/ Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, on June 13, 2012. Plaque includes image of Dinges and a brief biography: "Whether as a shooter, ball-handler or passer, she was the well-tuned engine that made the Hillsdale girls' basketball machine hum in the late 1990s. She set a Peninsula Athletic League record for the most three-point shots made during her prep career. Then, at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, it was more of the same. During her four-year career with the Tigers, she set records for long-distance shooting. As of 2012, she was No.2 on the UOP three-point shooting list with 250 treys made. She was 11th in all-time Tiger scoring with 1,195 points. Her floor leadership and savvy later translated into a prep basketball coaching career." Plaque is wood with an acrylic label attached to front with four screws, one in each corner. Wood has a hole in center top, as well as two grooves on back (one on the left and one on top below the hole), for mounting.
