Alumni Keep Pilot Spirit Alive At Homecoming Week | Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School


Alumni Keep Pilot Spirit Alive At Homecoming Week

The air was chilly last week, but that did not dampen the Pilot pride! Alumni came out in enthusiastic numbers to last week’s homecoming events.

On Wednesday night, a co-ed alumni soccer team competed against the Pilots student team at College of Alameda. On Friday night, the Kelly Gymnasium came alive with Pilot Spirit at the alumni basketball games. The alumni teams were too powerful for our JV men’s and Varsity women’s teams. Our Varsity men’s team barely held on against the seasoned alum players, who seem to keep in shape all year for this annual tournament. The energy was boosted by good-spirited competition on the court along with many crowd-pleasing plays.


Recent alum Bennison Flores '16 led the cheerleaders in a half-time routine, and our very own alumni pep band entertained the spectators with their lively tunes. After the basketball games, the crowd headed to the beautifully-lit quad where they enjoyed free BBQ, caught up with old friends around the fire, and reminisced about their days at SND.

A special thank you to members of our Alumni Council – Larry Bellusa ‘65, Harold Boscovich ‘59; Bill Crittondon ‘63; 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 Principal Ken Jennings who welcomed alumni back during the basketball game.
