Andre Woolridge, Angee Henry Nott included in 2019 Omaha Sports Hall of Fame class

Andre Woolridge, Angee Henry Nott, Brad Hildebrandt and the undefeated 1989 Millard South boys basketball team have been selected to the Omaha Sports Hall of Fame.

Their induction will be part of the new Omaha Sports Commission Awards (OSCAs) on May 30 at the Holland Performing Arts Center. The OSCAs also will honor current athletes and teams.

Woolridge, from Omaha Benson, is the state’s last male basketball player to make first-team all-conference at a Power Five school (Iowa, 1997). He was a third-team All-American.

Nott, from Bellevue West, was the NCAA women’s long jump champion at the 1996 indoor and outdoor meets. She was a three-time conference champion and 10-time All-American at Nebraska.

On The World-Herald’s Nebraska 100 list updated in 2015, Nott was No. 76 and Woolridge No. 87.

Shane Bradford, the president and founder of the Omaha Sports Hall of Fame, said the new inductees represent the best of the area’s athletes.

Additional details on the OSCAs will be released later, said Josh Todd, president and executive director of the Omaha Sports Commission.
