Congratulations Mr. Donald Norcross on being inducted into the Kearny Komets Hall of Fame. From your Kearny athletic career to your amazing accomplishments in journalism for the sports community as a whole, Bravo! Once a Komet, always a Komet!


Mr. Lincoln White, forever a Komet, and now a Hall of Fame Inductee. His son accepted on his behalf tonight.


Congratulations to the Kearny Komets 1971 CIF Championship Baseball Team being inducted into the Distinguished Kearny Komets Hall of Fame. To all those in attendance and those with us in spirit, Congratulations on making school history!🏆⚾️


Congratulations to all of the inductees being honored at tonight's Hall of Fame Ceremony.


Last, but far from least, is Lincoln White, Support Staff from ’72-’88. Linc is being inducted under the “Education” category posthumously, not only for his day job at Kearny, but because of his long time commitment to the students, where he was a bit of a street counselor who kept many young men in school. He was so important that we received over 50 write ups for him when his nomination was being considered. If you were impacted by Linc, we’d love to hear about it. Join us Saturday for the Hall of Fame Ceremony! Go Komets!


Larry Waters, Class of ’70 is being inducted under the “Education” category. Larry was a Mathematics & Physical Education Teacher for 34 years with the Sweetwater Union High School District. He has also been a great supporter of Alumni events over the years. Fun fact, Larry lettered in 3 different sports at Kearny: Baseball, Basketball and Football. Join us in celebrating these amazing Komets!


Under the category of “Community Service” is Mark Shaffer, Class ’82. Together with his adorable Boston Terrier therapy dog, Chopper the Biker Dog, he supported hospitals, hospice care, police, the Wounded Warriors and a multitude of other nonprofits. Mark and Chopper, and Bandit before him, brought smiles and laughter to people all over San Diego County, especially when they’d see Chopper on his very own customized bike. Come join the celebration of these special Komets one week from today!

The next Distinguished Komet is Donald Norcross, Class of ’75, who is being inducted under the “Visual, Performing Arts, Journalism” category. Don is a freelance journalist writing for a variety of publications including the San Diego Union Tribune, Baltimore Sun and ESPN. He also happened to be the starting QB for Kearny’s CIF Championship Team! And, according to his Twitter handle, he barfed before every game:-) Join us on April 29th for the induction ceremony.


Barbara Forester, Class of ’58, is being honored with the inaugural “Morris Akers Legacy Award”. This award was created for Komets just like Barbara, who have spent decades donating her time to the Alumni Association, including becoming a Trustee in 2021. She is the first person to raise her hand and the last one to leave an event. Much like who this award was named after, Morris Akers, Barbara is a true joy to work with.


Congratulations to Beverly Montgomery Cassity, Class of ’64, who is being inducted under the category of “Business”. Bev has been planning incredibly successful events, including the Scripps Ranch Farmers Market & Family Festival. Bev, and her husband Mike, started this event back in 2003 and after a few years off, had a grand reopening 2 years ago. She’s very passionate about producing events that benefit the families in her community of North County Inland. Join us on April 29th to induct Bev into the Kearny Distinguished Hall of Fame.


Alumni- If you're in the area check out the Komets next baseball game. Go cheer them on and show them some support. Go Komets! ⚾️

Fans, let's give a HUGE shout-out to Kearny High School Administrators and SDUSD for delivering an amazing retrofit to our home field! It's truly incredible how much of a difference this undertaking can make.

Come out and support the Komets Baseball team as they take on Hoover in the final game of the series this Thursday! Currently up 5-0 in League play, last night's game was a nail-biter that went into extra innings. However, Jr. Laird Eaton finished the team out with strong pitching in the 8th inning and Jr. Elijah Duffy was awarded player of the game for his stellar hitting. Let's all cheer on the Komets to victory!
