Pius X Athletics Hall of Fame
The athletic Hall of Fame was established in 2014 to honor the rich tradition and community dedication to Pius X’s athletic programs. The Thunderbolts first began their athletic competitions in 1956 (football), and became the first school in Lincoln to offer female athletics beginning in 1970 (golf). Today, Pius X students compete in 19 NSAA sanctioned sports and have won more than 70 state championships.

The purpose of the Pius X High School Hall of Fame is to honor individuals and/or teams in the following categories:
Athlete – Any high school athlete who recorded superior performance as a participant at Pius X in an NSAA sanctioned sport. Any such person may not be considered until 10 years after high school graduation.
Coach – Individuals must have coached at Pius X High School for at least 5 years. A coach would be eligible for Hall of Fame induction if he/she has retired from coaching or has reached the age of 60.
Contributor – This category would include teachers, administrators, boosters, fans, or individuals who made a significant contribution to Pius X athletics.
Team – Athletic teams are eligible for the Hall of Fame 10 years from the completion of their athletic season of accomplishment. State Championship title(s) are a requisite, unless waived by the board/chair due to extenuating circumstances (historical, emotional, precedent, etc.)
