It was a winning weekend for Archbishop Riordan High School’s basketball and wrestling teams.
On Riordan’s newly-built Restani Court, the Crusaders took home a 86-57 victory over Berkeley High School to win the Crusader Classic Basketball Tournament. James Chun ’18 and Je’Lani Clark ’20 were co-MVPs. On the mat, the Crusaders went 4-1 at the Faultline Duals, with standout individual performances from Gene Aberoutte ’18, Jake Angelo ‘ 18 and Isaac Rogan ’18. Aberoutte had a pre-season wrestling ranking of 38 in the State and 5th in the Central Coast Section.
This holiday season, please consider a gift to the Archbishop Riordan Annual Fund. It doesn’t take a huge donation to have a big impact. When taken together, gifts to The Archbishop Riordan Annual Fund, whether $25 or $25,000, create one of the school’s most significant sources of support for our young men.

On Friday, November 10, surrounded by his parents, coaches, fellow players, and Riordan faculty and staff, Matthew Calhoun signed a letter of intent to play baseball for Santa Clara University.
On Wednesday, in front of his Riordan family of faculty and staff, Joey Klobas ’07 became a lay Marianist Affiliate.
Spiritual affiliation is a special vocation in the Church and the Marianist Family of following Mary’s example — her trust in God’s promises, her openness to God’s action in her life, and her faithful response to God’s call. Read more about Affiliation here.
A proud alumnus, Mr. Klobas has held multiple roles at Riordan, including teacher, retreat leader, and club moderator. He is currently Activities Director, Prep Shop Manager, and director of the Fall Play, Harvey. He has also played a large role in helping Riordan launch its new House System, which is used at several Marianist high schools across the country.
The Riordan community is deeply proud of Mr. Klobas and his decision to pursue Affiliation. He will help those around him develop in faith and live the Marianist charisms.
