Denny “Sully” Sullivan Award

In 2022, the Denny Sullivan Scholarship Award was established to honor the top graduating Portland Interscholastic League male and female track & field / cross country athletes as nominated by their schools. The winners are selected by an independent committee, and are honored at the annual Portland Interscholastic League Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held each October.

Our Mission

The Portland Interscholastic League Hall of Fame supports the athletic programs and facilities of the Portland public high schools financially and as requested by the district, and honors student-athletes, coaches, administrators and others for their outstanding performances and contributions through annual selections to its Hall of Fame.

We rely on the generous support of our sponsor's, membership base and the countless hours our volunteer's give-back to help keep the PIL a highly competitive league and give our student-athletes the opportunity to participate in the sports they love.

The Portland Interscholastic League has a rich tradition is sports excellence dating back to at least 1900.
