The Utah Sports Hall of Fame Foundation will add five members Nov. 18 when Debra Stark Clark (gymnastics), Chick Hislop (track and field/cross country), Gordon Jolley (football), Jeff Lowe (mountain climbing) and Lori Parrish Salvo (basketball) are inducted during a dinner and ceremony at EnergySolutions Arena.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. event, preceded by a 6 p.m. reception, are $40. For reservations, send checks to USHFF secretary Scott Mayne, 10182 S. Cornerstone, South Jordan, UT 84095.

Clark was a member of the 1972 U.S. Olympic gymnastics team that competed in Munich and she later coached at Brigham Young. Having earned degrees from Weber State and Southern Utah, she teaches third grade in Heber City and is president of the Utah Olympians Association.

Hislop attended Ben Lomond High, Weber Junior College and Utah State before launching his track coaching career at Ben Lomond. He moved to Weber State in 1969 and coached the Wildcats to 21 Big Sky Conference championships in his 38 years.

Jolley was an all-state performer in three sports at Granite High and became an all-conference offensive lineman for Utah before playing seven seasons in the NFL for Detroit and Seattle. He was a longtime football and baseball coach at Dixie State College.

Lowe, an Ogden High graduate, will become the first mountaineering expert in the Utah Sports Hall of Fame. The alpinist was described as the "finest ice climber of his era" in a 1978 Sports Illustrated cover story. He's credited with more than 1,000 first ascents in his ice and rock climbing career, has written three books and is developing the downtown Ogden Climbing Parks.

Salvo went from Davis High to Utah, where she was a two-time All-American in basketball and also starred in volleyball and track and field. She was selected among the state's top 50 athletes of the 20th century by Sports Illustrated and now coaches at Viewmont High.
