Jackie (Johnson) Fuchs inducted in 2016

Jackie (Johnson) Fuchs (Class of 1978) was a pioneer in Upsala girls’ athletics. As an eighth grader, she was a starter on the first volleyball team and a year later joined the inaugural girls’ basketball squad.

In all, she was a five-year starter in volleyball and a four-year starter in basketball, earning multiple All Conference awards in both sports and a team MVP in basketball.

An all-around player in volleyball, Fuchs excelled as a server. In her most memorable match, she served out all eighteen points in a row. In basketball, Fuchs became the first Upsala girl to score 1000 points, and that in an age before the three-point line and when a boys’ size ball was used. She later returned to Upsala High School in the 1980’s, taking over as the Head Coach for volleyball and Assistant Coach in basketball.
