WHAT A NIGHT! A night for champions! The All-Raiders Alumni-Varsity Game was a tremendous success! A great show of sportsmanship, camaraderie and strong sense of pride for Stonewall Jackson High School. New friendships were made and a reaffirmation to what makes Stonewall such a special place was confirmed.
Special thanks to our AD Kevin Turner for his unwavering support and making this a reality; to Patricia Schumaker of Stonewall Jackson Volunteer Fire Department for volunteering her time and EMT services (thank God her services weren't needed!); to A.J. Laban for his voice and wit serving as our evening's announcer; to John Becker and Coach Adam Ward for being our awesome referees; to Pat Hogan for being our evening's photographer; to Sean McMahon for overseeing fine details & coordination; to Coach Justin Orabona and Trevor Wilkinson for stepping up and playing goalie posts; and to Carma Becker and Julie Hogan for organizing and coordinating the event.
Most of all, we thank all our Raiders (past and present) AND all our families and friends who came out to watch. We are counting on all of you to continue to support our program. It most certainly takes a village... and we've got an amazing one. Let's continue to nurture it and help it grow.
