The team being inducted is:
Arlington High School 1982 Girls Basketball Team
The 1982 Arlington High School Girls Basketball team finished the season with a victory at the AA State Championships after almost failing to qualify. With a record of 12-6 in the league, the team had to win a playoff to qualify them for the district tournament, and the team did so by beating both Woodway and Lake Stevens. Arlington followed with four additional wins to finish second in the district. Now qualified for regionals, the team defeated Anacortes to enter the state tournament. At the state event, Arlington beat the undefeated Olympia, led by center Brenda Souther, who had 18 points and four blocked shots in the first half.
