Amelia High School honored three of its all-time greatest athletes at the 21st Annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner and Eighth Annual Baron Bash. The celebration took place at Receptions Eastgate.
Attendance of almost 300 viewed the event that honored the following trio of Amelia High sports standouts.

Susie Bosken (class of 1987) was a Clermont County League and Cross County Conference all-star in soccer, basketball, and fastpitch softball. She earned 11 varsity letters and was regarded as the best defensive player as a center fielder on the softball team that advanced to the Division I state final four and as the goalkeeper on the soccer team.

Troy Helmers (class of 1986) is the first tennis player to receive hall of fame laurels. He was a four-season Clermont County League all-star and was unbeaten during his final three years in league competition. He owned an overall 26-match winning streak playing first singles from his sophomore through senior years.

Cliff Johnson (class of 1961) was the recipient of the Baron Award for those who have made and/or continue to make outstanding contributions to the success of the Amelia High School athletic program.
He was a starter on the undefeated and state-ranked football team of the 1960-61 season that led the state in scoring with 490 points. He was a member of the first-ever Clermont County League all-star football squad.
He was instrumental in founding the West Clermont Youth sports programs and the Amelia Youth Athletic Club and has been serving for more than 30 years in the youth sports programs in the Amelia and West Clermont area.
