Karen Langston was a legend at North High School in 1984. She was All Area in three sports in a single year and she will be inducted into the North High Athletics Hall of Fame this weekend.

Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Langston and George Culver, who are both part of the hall of fame committee, previewed the second annual induction ceremony.

Last year, Langston said, she didn't want to be inducted but Culver said folks were able to convince her this time around.

"She's an amazing athlete," he said.

Seventeen new members will join last year's 17 inductees.

The reception kicks off at 5 p.m. Saturday at Monsignor Leddy Hall on the Garces Memorial High School campus. Admission is $75 and includes beverages and a New York steak dinner.

Tickets can be purchased at North High, Oildale Auto Parts and Kern Trophies. For more information, visit www.northhighathleticshof.com.
