Family Becomes Fraternity On The Court

The essence of Cathedral lies within the its fraternity. During this year’s Alumni Basketball League, we had two sets of brothers play along side each other, as well as a father-son team. Never able to play on the same team in their high school years, finally these duos had the chance to hit the court together and make the best out of it!

Father-Son Duo – Thomas Early, Sr., ’74 and Thomas Early, Jr.,’08

Brothers – Mike Liander, ’05 and Chris Liander, ’10

Brothers – Pat Candela, ’05 and Sal Candela, ’02

Hoops League Unites Cathedral Prep Alums (with video)
January 22, 2016
By Jim Mancari

Young men who play sports in high school are always convinced of one thing: No matter how long it’s been since they’ve graduated, they still got plenty of game!

Whether or not that may be true, one local high school has started a unique basketball league to reach out to its alumni.

This past fall, Cathedral Prep and Seminary, Elmhurst, established the Cathedral Basketball League. Over 35 former students play a 12-week schedule of games in the school’s gymnasium, which allows them to reconnect with their old stomping grounds.  To continue reading and view video, click on the following link:
