Alumni Bring Pilot Spirit to Homecoming Week | Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School


Alumni Bring Pilot Spirit to Homecoming Week

The air was chilly, but that did not dampen the SJND alumni spirit! Alumni from many decades came out in enthusiastic numbers to Alumni Homecoming Week last week.

Men’s alumni soccer players competed against our student team at the College of Alameda on Wednesday night. Then on Friday night, alumni came alive with the Pilot Spirit at the basketball games. The alumni teams were too powerful for our JV Men’s and Women’s Varsity teams. Our Men’s Varsity team held their own against the seasoned alum players, who seem to keep in shape all year for this annual tournament of good-spirited competition on the court.

During half-time, alumni from the various decades participated in a free throw contest. The SJND cheerleaders and alumni pep band kept the crowd cheering and having fun throughout the game.

After the games, the crowd headed to the BBQ in the beautifully lit quad where they caught up with old friends over the fire and reminisced about their days at SJND. A special thank you to members of our Alumni Council: Harold Boscovich ’59; Bill Crittondon ’63; Cynthia LaCroix ’67; Kerry O’Hara ’70 Plain; Robert Pola ’57 and Phil Sandri ’83 for volunteering at  the event. Thank you to Tim DeGrano ’83 who served as Master of Ceremonies during the basketball game and Father George Alengadan who welcomed alumni back to campus.
