Friday, December 21 brought back the annual EC varsity vs alumni games. This year with many alumni boys returning to the EC courts, the alumni from 2012-2015 faced off against the alumni from 2015-2018 to determine who would play the varsity squad. The older alumni took the upper hand, but then lost to the current EC team. The EC girls also triumphed over the alumni girls. Alumni gathered after the game at Hamlin Pub for appetizers sponsored by the school and time to catch up.
The evening was complete with the unveiling of the Mountaineer mascot. President Mike Nalepa and athletic director Ann Lowney introduced him to an enthusiastic crowd. The new mascot sports his climbing boots, pickaxe, and rope and of course the “All for Him” that can be found on the back of Mountaineer jerseys. After break the Mountaineers pick up their season with the boys playing at Allen Park Cabrini on Friday, January 4 at 7:00 P.M. and the girls taking on Novi Christian at home on Tuesday, January 8 at 7:00 P.M.
