World champion power-lifter Robert Herbst of Larchmont is one of four county athletes who will be inducted into the Westchester Sports Hall of Fame in October. The others are: former Stepinac and Providence basketball star Marty Conlon, who went on to a nine-year NBA career; former shot put world record-holder Henry Korn Jr., who starred at Stepinac and Manhattan College; and former White Plains football standout Dean Loucks.
Mr. Herbst won his 14th consecutive national power-lifting title earlier this year. He has 22 national titles, 11 world titles, and seven world records. He also coaches myriad youth sports and is a Platinum Award winner in the President’s Fitness Challenge. He raised $10,000 for tsunami relief and went to Sri Lanka to distribute the funds himself.
The Westchester Sports Hall of Fame program is sponsored by Con Edison in cooperation with the Westchester Department of Parks and Recreation. To attend the October 7 induction dinner, contact Dan Lyons at (914) 925-6357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
