There were hard-fought tournament wins and well-earned league awards, varsity letters and school records, but it was the lessons these athletes learned on the playing field – not the accolades – that lasted long after they left Chaminade Julienne.
From state qualifiers, to collegiate scholarship recipients, to a man who spent decades promoting youth sports, this year’s Chaminade Julienne Hall of Fame class is varied and diverse, but they all know what it means to be an Eagle.
It’s a feat only six other Eagle basketball players have accomplished - scoring 1,000 or more points during their high school career.
On Tuesday, February 5, Milton Gage ‘19 became the seventh player in the school’s history to do just that.
The football game on Thursday, September 6 was much more than an athletic event. It was the CJ community gathering together to highlight athletes, students and the school’s impact in downtown Dayton.
Preparation for the main event, featuring the Eagles versus the Greenville Green Wave, began before the sun was up. Football players, cheerleaders, and members of Eagle Pride pumped up viewers on FOX 45’s morning show.
“The FOX 45 team was outstanding getting our students excited and fans too,” said Kary Ellen Berger, CJ communications coordinator.
