Tammy McCallum became the first Clermont County female athlete inducted into the Buddy LaRosa’s Sports Hall of Fame.
The LaRosa’s Hall of Fame has existed since 1975 and, amazingly, only two Clermont County high school athletes have been chosen. The other is Tammy’s brother, Napoleon, who was inducted in 1999. They are just the second brother-sister combination to receive membership in this hall of fame.
Tammy graduated from Milford High School in 1992. As an Eagle she earned 11 varsity letters – four in basketball and track and field and three in volleyball and she was a starter each of those 11 seasons. She was selected nine times to the Greater Miami Conference all-star squad in the trio of sports.
She continues to hold school records in basketball – career points (1,380), career rebounds (1,093), free throws made (403) and field goals made (492). Coach Ted Dixon’s varsity cagers were 75-17 during her four years on the team. She earned all-city and all-Ohio status for her hardcourt performance in 1992.
