Monks Basketball Recognition Day

1000 point club

Greg Collymore ’94 is introduced to the crowd as one of the day’s honorees.

The gym was filled on February 23 as the SJC community celebrated decades of Monks basketball. Two new banners were raised in the Alfond Center gymnasium to honor all of our 1,000-point scorers in a heartfelt ceremony for 46 alumni, ranging in class years from 1974 to 2005. The alumni lounge was then the place to celebrate the accomplishments while the crowd cheered on the men's and women's teams in the last games of the regular season. Special recognition was also paid to our Class of 2008 seniors on a great basketball career at SJC.

One more surprise recognition topped off the day as Sheri (McCarthy) Piers '93 was honored for her accomplishments in running. Sheri is one of three women from Maine that qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials in the women's marathon, being held in Boston in late April. Sheri was presented with a gift from the college and best wishes as she represents Maine and SJC!
