More than Just a Game for Athletics Alumni

Sunday, December 15, 2013

Red Storm pride was on full display during the Fall semester, as former student-athletes came back to campus for a number of athletics gatherings.

At Athletics Alumni Reunion Weekend, former members from all of the University’s past and present sports programs – as well as alumni from the Pep Band, Cheerleading Squad and Dance team – reminisced and relived their glory days by participating in alumni games. And during the “Legends of St. John’s Basketball Alumni Game,” held as part of the annual Red Storm Tip-Off event, Men’s and Women’s Basketball alumni suited up for an alumni scrimmage. They also attended a St. John’s Basketball Alumni Memorial Mass and watched the current Men’s team practice.

Meanwhile, during the Second Annual Olympic Night, St. John’s Track and Field alumni were honored for their achievements and for their participation in world games like the Olympics.  

“Our sports tradition wouldn’t be what it is without our amazing athletic alumni,” said Paul Sclafani ’08CPS, ’10MBA, Assistant Director of Athletic Development. “Their SJU pride is off the charts, so it’s always fun to bring them back to campus and watch them reminisce.”
