Annual Alumni Basketball Night 2014

The game this year was against Brother Rice and held in St. Xavier’s gym, with Leo being the home team. The game date was Friday, December 19, 2014 with tip-off at 7:00 p.m. with entertainment beginning at 6:30.

Admission was $5, so how can you possibly go wrong. The gym holds over 2000 and we hoped to fill as many seats as possible. This was the first time in six years that Br. Rice is on our schedule and it was nice to see that strong rivalry resurrected. Ample parking was available at St. Xavier so we did not have a bus going to the game this year. What did remain the same is the free pizza and refreshments after the game that was held at Br Rice High School. This get together was for both schools Alumni and their friends, but will be limited to those over the age of 21.

Sponsorship was recognized in the room where we met after the game. Also, donations at the event to help cover the cost were accepted and appreciated. Keeping in mind that any and all money raised above the cost of it went directly to Leo High School.

Many thanks to Gene Earner ’50 and Jerry Schmitt ’58 for all their hard work and effort in making this event happen.

As always ladies and friends of Leo are invited to this event, so next year don your Leo apparel and bring your Leo stories. We look forward to seeing you at what is sure to be another great Leo Alumni outing come 2015!
