Sarah Kustok, a popular television star at Comcast Sports Net Chicago since 2009, has moved on to the YES Network in New York. But she was back in Chicago last Wednesday to be inducted into the Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame at Hawthorne Race Course in Cicero.
The extremely photogenic former Blackhawks reporter joined 19 other inductees including Green Bay Packers legend Paul Hornung, Chicago Bears linebacker Otis Wilson and Bo Jackson. Kustok is the 4th best career three-point shooter in DePaul history.
“I was shocked and humbled when they called me,” she said. “It was one of the most surprising calls I’ve had in a long time.”
Kustok was the Chicago Sun-Times high school basketball Player of the Year in 2000 while playing at Carl Sandburg in suburban Orland Park. Her brother Zak was a standout quarterback at Northwestern. She also starred at DePaul, serving as team captain as a senior and leading the Lady Blue Demons to the NCAA tournament twice and the NIT twice.
Kustok, who was also featured on NBC 5 recently, has since been replaced on CSN by Susannah Collins.
