The Archbishop Riordan High School Crusaders brought the Gil Haskell Trophy back to campus on Friday night, after a 26-20 victory over St. Ignatius.
Gil Haskell coached at both Riordan and SI before going on to win two Rose Bowls at USC and a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers over a 40-year career. The annual Riordan vs. St. Ignatius football game is named in his honor.
Riordan juniors in the Class of 2019 officially became upperclassmen at the Junior Ring Liturgy, with support from their Crusader brothers, parents, and especially the alums currently working and teaching at Riordan. Congrats juniors!
It’s a triple header for the Archbishop Riordan High School Marching Band who will be playing at the football game on Saturday, Italian Heritage Parade on Sunday, and at the Fleet Week Band Challenge on Monday. Last year the Band took home a first place finish and $10,000 prize at the Fleet Week Band Challenge.
They also brought home two first place awards at last week’s Band Review.
Recommended for students and families in grades 5-8, Riordan’s Open House on Sunday, October 29, 2017 is a great chance to explore campus, meet current students, parents, faculty and coaches, and learn about academic, athletic and extra-curricular programs. We ask that all families register here.
Registration starts at 9:30 am, and the program runs approximately 10:00 am – 12:30 pm.
