A celebration will occur tonight to help congratulate another round of Greater Shepparton Sports Hall of Fame inductees.

Staged at Riverlinks Eastbank from 6pm, the evening will have 23 sporting legends added to the honour roll and junior honour roll categories of the prestigious list.

The News has been featuring stories on each of the inductees in the lead-up to tonight's ceremony, with journalists Liam Nash and Laura Briggs delving into the history and reliving the successes of each of the regional champions.

Starting with Maddie Garrick on July 20 and finishing yesterday with Don Kilgour, each day a profile has been printed in The News to help celebrate the stellar achievements all of these inductees have managed.

Joining Garrick on the junior honour roll is Daniel Thorsen, Glenn Harrap and Trudi Skinner.

On the honour roll with Kilgour is Martin Rennie, Peg Curtis, Ritchie Mann, Willy O'Callaghan, Bert Lightfoot, Rosemary and Ken Tyquin, Amanda Costa, Rohan Larkin, Lucy and Frank Scott, Jeremy Garner, Joyce Russell, Ian Fitzsimmons, Fred McMahon, Noela Laws, Bryan Doyle and Pamela Pogue.

In 2017, 27 initial inductees were bestowed the honour of being included in the Greater Shepparton Sports Hall of Fame.
