5 will be inducted into Hall

The Utah Sports Hall of Fame Foundation will honor five Utahns during its annual dinner and induction ceremony on Nov. 13.

Dave Harkness (tennis), Terry Nish (motorsports), the late Phil Odle (football), Dave Schultess (athletic publicity) and Margo Walters McDonald (skiing) will be honored at EnergySolutions Arena, which houses the Utah Sports Hall of Fame.

Harkness was a two-time tennis all-American at BYU after winning three individual state championship for Brighton High. He also won four professional tournaments. Nish is known as the patriarch of "the world's fastest family," with his three sons joining him in setting world records on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Odle played for BYU in the mid-1960s, and his school career receiving records lasted nearly 25 years. Schultess, who began his sports information career at BYU in 1951, became a charter member of the College Sports Information Directors of America in 1955 and was inducted into the organization's Hall of Fame in 1979, a year before serving as its president. McDonald became the first female skier from Utah to enter an Alpine event in the Olympics, skiing the downhill competition in 1964.
