Dear Alumni and Friends, The 2018-2019 school year is off and running to a great start with SJCC alumni and long time faculty member Mike Gabel back at the helm as the Principal. The first semester has been marked by a lot of excitement for the future here at SJCC. Mr. Gabel’s passion for all things SJCC has translated into a renewed energy and school spirit from the students, the faculty, the coaches, boosters, parents and community members alike! I have spent a lot of my time in my first six months as the new Head of School getting to know a lot about the history of SJCC. I continue to run into successful SJCC alumni all throughout my interactions and meetings in the community. From the 100 years of basketball to the many colorful stories from Mr. Wonderly, Mr. Reineck and Mr. Geller’s classrooms it is clear to see how that history has shaped such a successful and sustainable future here for generations of Streaks to come. It’s remarkable to think that amazing opportunities that you had as a student here at SJCC have paved the way to continued success for so many current students and recent graduates. It’s no secret that we can’t do it without your continued support, which comes in so many different ways. From alumni who are now teachers working directly with our students, alumni now coaching our highly competitive and successful athletic teams, alumni who donate their time and energy to help in the cafeteria and as boosters, to all of you who are able to support us financially through your generous donations. Your continued support and generosity are what enables us, and what drives us to be the best in all that we do. May God continue to bless you and your families as He has our entire SJCC family. Sincerely, Anthony Fontana Head of School

Boys Basketball 100 Year Celebration Submitted by: Matthew McFarland ‘19 Ups and downs, the long 100 year history of SJCC basketball has been full of them. From having a two year stretch of .722 winning percentage basketball, to a nine year period where the team had a winning percentage of just .327 in the 80’s and early 90’s. From surrendering an astounding zero points to Helena in 1924 to giving up 106 points to Sandusky St. Mary’s in 1970. From scoring 120 against Bettsville in 2013 to scoring just four points against Elmore in 1923. SJCC basketball has seen some great highs, such as sending outstanding players like Jordan Sessler to college to play basketball. The program has also seen some despairing lows, such as going 2-19 in 1983. All and all SJCC basketball has been a considerably successful program, accruing nine sectional titles, 13 league titles, and two district titles in its history. Among those sectional titles, seven came consecutively from 1992-1999. It has seen some incredible coaches, such as Mike Gabel, undoubtedly the best coach in the program’s history. Under Gabel, the Streaks won all of their district and sectional titles in program history. Gabel secured himself a .587 winning percentage and won an astounding 210 games, making him the program’s most winning coach by a large margin, holding over a 120 game edge on next closest coach, current coach Jonathan Will. But SJCC basketball is more than just stats, numbers and titles. SJCC basketball is the feeling of a sold out Thunderdome on a December night playing against SMCC. Coach Jonathan Will relates that sentiment, telling me it can be absolutely bone chilling how loud the Thunderdome gets. With the student section a mere foot or so from the floor it makes life extremely hard for the other team, something SJCC fans pride themselves on. SJCC basketball is the love of the game, the hustle and heart every single player who comes through the program shows. Coach Will tells of his favorite memory coaching, his league title-winning season in 2013. However, it isn’t his favorite memory just because his team won the title. He attributes it more to the selfless and hardworking demeanor his team possessed. This selfless attitude is most directly reflected in defense, a stat SJCC has been terrific in since 2012. SJCC basketball is proud of its trials and tribulations, and has only grown as a program because of them. SJCC basketball is about more than stats. It’s about pride, love for the name of the Streaks, as well as being willing to give it all for the team. SJCC basketball doesn’t just mold its student athletes into being successful players, but to being successful people. Coach Will shared with me his biggest point of pride is seeing his players do well in the classroom and become great men. “God also plays a huge part in our basketball program,” says Coach Will. “God is the foundation of our everyday lives and we put each day in his hands. I live by the motto, ‘God’s Got This’ and we entrust that our faith will carry us and guide us to do what’s asked of us. Not a day or game goes by without us asking God in prayer to provide us coaches the ability to lead these young men, and for our players to play to the best of their ability and remain injury free.” St Joseph Basketball isn’t numbers, even though numbers are meaningful, SJCC basketball, is love. It’s the love of the fans for the team, the love of the team to the game, and then love of the coaches to the players. This is what SJCC basketball is truly about.
