Athletic Hall of Fame

Manlius Pebble Hill School has made the decision to postpone some alumni events, including the Athletic Hall of Fame and Alumni Weekend events until fall 2022 (dates TBD). Know that the health and safety of our community members is our top priority, and this will guide all of our decisions moving forward.

Stay current with the School’s communication on COVID-19 here.

Our best wishes are with our alumni community as you all handle these challenging times. Stay well!


We are extremely proud of the athletic legacy that originated at The Manlius School and Pebble Hill School and continues today at the Manlius Pebble Hill School. MPH offers an extensive array of sports, including soccer, tennis, cross-country, swimming, volleyball, basketball, track, alpine skiing, golf, softball, and lacrosse. We are proud to honor the School’s enduring commitment to athletic excellence and student athletes by recognizing outstanding teams, coaches, and players who contributed to its strong sports legacy.

MPH is enormously proud of our athletic tradition and continues to recognize the importance of athletics as part of the student experience. We are proud to announce the athletes who were  inducted into our Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, June 2, 2018. Photos from the event can be seen here.
