After inducting three members in 2016, the Greater Pueblo Sports Association has made up for it with 13 going into its hall of fame this year. 

The banquet and ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. tonight at the Fortino Ballroom at Pueblo Community College.

Besides the induction of its new members, the hall will present the Brian Macartney and Jesse Banks and Spank Blasing award winners to high school and CSU-Pueblo student-athlete.

The Brian Macartney Award to outstanding high school students will be presented to Cara Siegel from Centennial and Hunter Willits of Pueblo County.

The Jesse Banks and Spank Blasing awards, given to CSU-Pueblo female and male athletes, go to Sydni Riley and Dante Carter, both of whom participate in track and field.

Pueblo West High School earned the Sollie Raso Award for its success in head-to-head competition with the other Pueblo schools.

Here is a brief look at each of the newest inductees:

Robert Busia (posthumously): A standout football player, first at Central and then at South, he went on to play at Pueblo Junior College and Southern Colorado State College (now CSU-Pueblo).

Rich Busia: Also a standout football player who played both at Central and South, Rich Busia was a state qualifier in the shot put who played football at the University of Wyoming.

Carol Barker-Cosby: A talented multi-sport and athlete and a successful coach, Cosby is the director of Pueblo West Parks and Recreation.

Greg Critchett: A solid football player at Centennial and Adams State, Critchett went on to teach and coach at Cherry Creek High School. He was named the school's teacher of the year in 2016.

John Gallina: After learning the game of tennis as a child, Gallina went on to play at South High. He then turned his love of the game into coaching and has been doing so since 1980.

Art Gonzales: As far as boosters go, both financially and in person, there are few bigger than Gonzales. A huge benefactor to CSU-Pueblo, the soccer/lacrosse complex and stadium are named after Art and his wife, Lorraine.

Paula Henson: An outstanding softball and tennis player, Henson was instrumental in collaborating with the Colorado State Fair to use the facilities for indoor tennis. She also is a charter member of the Colorado Volleyball Officials Association.

Rich Lane: A three-sport athlete at East, Lane made his sports bones as an assistant coach, from high school to college to the Crusaders.

Timmie Jo Miller-Lisac: A standout athlete in high school, Miller-Lisac was part of three state championship basketball teams at South. She went on to a good career in basketball at CSU-Pueblo, earning the school's top female athlete award in 1996.

Ron Oreskovich (posthumously): He was equally imposing on the football field for Central as a tight end on the 1961 state championship team and in the circle as one of the top softball pitchers in Pueblo history. He died in 2009.

David Perkins: In 1965, Perkins quarterbacked Central to the AAA state football championship. Appointed to the Air Force Academy to play football, Perkins suffered a knee injury and resigned honorably.

Eileen Krasovec-Perez: A talented gymnast from a young age, Krasovec-Perez anchored Central's 1978 state championship team by winning the all-around competition. She is the only person in Pueblo history to do so.

Tim Urenda: A three-sport athlete at South, Urenda is best known for helping shape the Colts' wrestling program, first as an assistant for more than 25 years and now as the head coach.
