A graduate of the Class of 1983, Patrick Raglow was a well-rounded student, active in athletics, the arts, and community service.  A member of Student Council and an Eagle Scout, Patrick says there are “so many” Stritch memories, including “cross country, high school musicals, and wrestling with Sister Ann Carmen and not getting in trouble!”

One of Stritch’s most prolific runners, Jennifer LaPlante McDonald is a graduate of the Class of 1999 and was coached by Dan ‘67 and Sandi Reardon.  She was named MVP as a basketball player at Cardinal Stritch, but Cross Country and Track were her best sports.

A graduate of the Class of 1972, Mike Manthey embodied the values of Cardinal Stritch as a student and graduate.  On the football field, Mike excelled as a tight end and defensive end, earning All-City and All-District honors, ultimately earning a full scholarship to play at the University of Toledo.  Mike’s family says his favorite Stritch memory is “passing and surviving Sister Florian’s chemistry class!”

Prior to this death in 1996, Jack Haley served as the business manager at St. Vincent Medical Center for 22 years.  He brought that acumen to Stritch, saying, “This school needs to be run like a business!”

Michael DeMaria is a 2000 graduate of Cardinal Stritch, earning 12 Varsity letters, 4 each in football, wrestling and track.

The 1970-71 Girls’ Basketball Team was the first girls’ team of any sport at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School, opening the door for generations of young women who walked through the doors of Cardinal Stritch who desired to be a student-athlete.

Joe Esposito, a 2010 graduate of Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School, was named a finalist for the San Damiano Servant Leadership Award. It is the first year for the award and Esposito finished second in the nation among those who were nominated.
