Overview

Over the years the Walsh Jesuit Alumni Association has selected alumni standouts to the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. These former Walsh Jesuit athletes, coaches, and support staff have helped establish the proud and rich Warrior athletic tradition of Walsh Jesuit High School.  The next induction will take place August 2, 2019.

Alumni Awards Night

On Friday, August 10, 2018 the Walsh Jesuit High School Alumni Association hosted its annual Alumni Awards Night. The evening honored recipients of the Distinguished Alumnus Awards as well as the Athletic Hall of Fame inductees. The Distinguished Alumnus Award is presented to an alumnus or alumna who has utilized his or her talents in an exemplary way to serve God and the community, consistent with Walsh Jesuit’s mission “Men and Women for and with Others.” Ambassador Kenneth Merten ’79 and Reverend Edward Siebert, S.J. ’84 were both honored.

Ambassador Merten was recognized for a remarkable career of service both to the United States of America, as well as to the people of Croatia and especially Haiti. Fr. Siebert was presented the award for his work at Loyola Productions, an organization he helped to found, which provides high quality and thought provoking content to challenge our view of the world. Fr. Siebert is also the first alumnus from Walsh Jesuit to have joined the Jesuit order.

The Walsh Jesuit High School Alumni Association also recognized six members of the Walsh Jesuit Community who made significant contributions to their sport as an athlete or coach with the Class of 2018 Athletic Hall of Fame induction. Former Walsh Jesuit athletes inducted were; Justin Alaburda ’00 (football, baseball and basketball), Paul Hudson Jones II (PJ) ’00 (wrestling, football and baseball), Kathryn (Tulisiak) Randquist ’01 (soccer, basketball and track), Lorena Floccari ’04 (softball and cross country), Johnna Zaccari ’07 (basketball, track and field). In addition, Coach Bill Barger was honored for his significant contribution to the Walsh Jesuit High School wrestling program. Coach Barger led the Warriors to multiple team and individual state and national championships and was the founder of the enormously popular Ironman Tournament.

The 2019 Alumni Awards Night will be held on August 2, 2019. For questions or more information about the nomination process, please contact Kevin Byrne ’92, Director of Alumni Relations at byrnek@walshjesuit.org.
