Five men and a woman who made significant contributions to St. Mary's High School in Annapolis will be inducted into the Saints' Hall of Fame on Saturday.

The St. Mary's Annual Hall of Fame Banquet will be held at the school on Duke of Gloucester Street in Annapolis and will honor Fred Kramer, Terry Kimble, John Codd, Don Gardner, George Engelke and Anne Quinn-Armstead.

Kramer, a 1968 graduate of St. Mary's, was a standout lacrosse and football player for four years. As a lacrosse goalie, he was team captain and most valuable player his senior year.

He was a junior college All-America goalie at Anne Arundel Community College in 1970, then starred at Maryland from 1971 to 1973. The 1973 Terps team, coached by Buddy Beardmore, now athletic director at AACC, won a national championship.

Kramer was the Saints' 1968 scholar-athlete for the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame Baltimore Chapter dinner. He also received the John C. Russell Award as the top scholar athlete at St. Mary's.

Kramer, who works for the Annapolis City Recreation Department, has been an assistant lacrosse coach at St. Mary's and now coaches the goalies at Maryland.

Kimble also became an All-American in lacrosse after starring at St. Mary's in lacrosse, football and basketball.

A 1975 St. Mary's grad, Kimble was all-county and lacrosse MVP before sparkling as a Maryland midfielder from 1976 to 1979 and earning first-team All-America honors.

A running back in football, Kimble was named All-American in 1975 after setting Saints career and season records for points and touchdowns.

Codd was also a three-sport standout and captained the football, basketball and lacrosse teams before graduating in 1959. An all-county performer in football and lacrosse, Codd was an All-American in lacrosse at the University of Baltimore in 1963.

Gardner, the lone non-grad of St. Mary's being inducted, was a teacher and coached the football team from 1960 to 1982 as either a head coach or assistant. Gardner is a superintendent of the Annapolis City Recreation Department.

Engelke, a member of the Class of 1956, was a three-sport athlete and earned his doctorate at Maryland in 1965.

Engelke captained the lacrosse team, played football and basketball and served as senior class president and president of the student government.

Quinn-Armstead, an all-county basketball player and the Saints MVP in her senior year of 1980, was the school's scholar-athlete in 1980.

Quinn-Armstead, lacrosse MVP and captain, won the C. Mason "Daffy" Russell Award as the Saints' unsung hero. She returned to her alma mater in the early 1980s to coach JV girls basketball.
