Angela Barre Falhaber - 2018 Highlands Athletics Hall of Fame Inductee


Highlands High School is excited to announce the 2018 Athletic Hall of Fame Class.  Inductees include: Angela Barre Falhaber, David Freer, Tammy Schlarman Freihofer, Eric Glaser, Justin Frisk, Coach Bill Herrmann, Scott Kuhnhein, Jean Pritchard, Kimberly Draud Rohmiller, and Michael Vories.

The Team of Distinction is the 1978-79 Boys Basketball Team.

Angela Barre Falhaber graduated from Highlands in 1998, where she lettered in five different sports, collecting 20 throughout her career.  Angela not only participated in these five sports during her six-year career, but also received regional and state recognition while doing so. She was a member of the swimming, basketball, volleyball, softball, and golf teams.  Angela has numerous accomplishments, awards, and accolades to her resume. Some of the highlights are Associated Press Kentucky Female Athlete of the Year 1998, Finalist for the LaRosa’s Athlete of the Year 1998, Kentucky Athletic Directors Scholarship Award Recipient 1998, Highlands Babe Ruth Sportsmanship Award 1997.

Angela earned many All-Tournament and All-Star Team selections during her time at Highlands, but her most impressive collection may have been through the sport of swimming.  She was a member of the 1995 State Championship team, qualified for state all 6 years, was a regional champion in multiple events, and was selected as 1st Team All-Region and pre-season All-State.  According to former coach Luci Cecil, “Angela was the epitome of a student athlete at Highlands, excelling at five sports, while maintaining academic excellence.”

After high school Angela earned degrees from the University of Kentucky and Xavier University and is currently teaching Physical Education in Oak Hills School District.  Angela resides in Wyoming, Ohio with her husband Brian and their two daughters: Ellie (8) and Alexis (5).


The Class of 2018 Inductees will be recognized during HHS Homecoming weekend October 19-21 including a public induction ceremony at Highlands Performing Center followed by a banquet dinner at The Syndicate.
