She graduated summa cum laude, and was a three-year member of the women's swimming team, serving as captain in her senior season. She also played one year of varsity field hockey.

During her career, she set school breaststroke records that stood for more than 10 years, and she is still part of a record-holding medley relay team. Honored as Towson State's Female Athlete of the Year in 1977 and 1978, she also was recognized as the senior student-athlete with the highest grade-point average.

Yapps, co-owner (with her husband Frank) and director of the Harford Gymnastics and Dance Training Center in Fallston, was a four-year star in gymnastics for the Tigers. She was the school's first gymnast to score more than 1,000 points and finished as career scoring leader.

She was the team's Most Valuable Gymnast in 1980 and 1981 and was named Towson State's Female Athlete of the Year in 1981 and 1982.

The other inductees will be former football coach Phil Albert, sprinter Donald Hofler (1957), lacrosse All-American Steve hTC Hornish (1980) and soccer standout Tom Morgan (1981). Ticket information is available at (410) 830-2234.
