Four Raiders – Bothwell C. Gonas '89, Jenny Stadler Krueger '93, Melissa Saiontz Luse '06 and Arturo C. Pedroso '03 – were inducted on April 11, 2019, to the Ransom Everglades Athletic Hall of Fame during an emotional and celebratory evening with friends, family, current Hall of Famers and other members of the RE community at the Pagoda.

Gonas, a nationally ranked tennis player in high school, attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro on a full scholarship; Stadler Krueger, a star volleyball, soccer and track and field athlete at RE, walked on to the track and field and volleyball teams at Duke University, where she became a record holder in the javelin throw and volleyball starter. Saiontz Luse played tennis at Princeton University after breaking Chris Evert's record for the most high school tennis titles in Florida. 

Pedroso still holds an assortment of RE all-time records in soccer, including the single-season record for assists with 31, and went on to play soccer at the College of the Holy Cross and American University.
