Honors for Tara, Ros and Anita

The induction ceremony this weekend for the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame Northern California will be an all-woman affair for the first time, and some of the six honorees aren’t even Jewish.

The nonprofit celebrates achievements by athletes living in Northern California.

Jack Anderson, the founder, said, “I don’t think that women have been given their due in sports. With all that testosterone bubbling around, I figured it might be nice to do something different. All the old Jewish guys on the board with me agreed.”

Three of the six honorees are from Stanford Women's Basketball — Tara, Ros Gold-Onwude (2010) and Anita Kaplan (1995).
