|STANDISH, ME - The 2008
Saint Joseph's College Homecoming Weekend was a smashing success,
as a record number of alumni ventured back to the SJC campus to
enjoy a weekend of sporting events and camaraderie.
Homecoming was kicked off Friday September 12th, with the 17th
Annual Golf Classic at Spring Meadows, while Head Coach Jamie Smyth
'92 headed up the Alumnae Softball Game under the lights. Friday
night was concluded with the 19th Hole Chalet Party and Comedy
Night with Robbie Printz.|
Saturday was a full day of action where Head Cross Country Coach Tom Dann and his former and current runners started the day off with the Runnin' Monks 5K Cross Country Challenge. Both the Athletic Department and coach Rupert Lewis were pleased to host the 1st Annual Alumnae Field Hockey Game. Coach Lewis received a very good turnout and the game resulted in a 3-3 tie. Other events that took place that day were the Monks Alumni Baseball game, and an array of Monks home games. The Homecoming Celebration at the Stadium Restaurant and Sports Bar in Portland on Saturday night was well attended and allowed the alumni to relax their tired muscles after a day of strenuous activity!
Sunday concluded the fun-filled weekend as Coach John Rasza and his volleyball players and alumnae played the 3rd annual Alumnae Volleyball Game. Unfortunately the 3rd annual Monks Co-Ed Alumni Soccer Game and BBQ was cancelled due to rain. It was a highly enjoyable weekend for all involved and we're all looking forward to next year!
A special thanks to Heather Plati and Alumni Staff for hosting another successful event!!
