DePaul Track Alumni Celebrate Columbus Day
In what has become a tradition, fourteen DePaul track alumni celebrated Columbus Day at the Cliff Dwellers. The alumni use the annual holiday as a chance to get together and to celebrate Blue Demon Track and Field.
The celebration began in the early eighties at the invitation of the late Hall of Fame track coach Don Amidei. A member of the Cliff Dwellers, Amidei would invite his alumni that worked as educators since he knew they would have the day off.
"It was a thrill to see so many of our alumni come out for our Columbus Day Reunion," Coach Pat Savage said. "It is fun to see old friends and talk about the growth of Blue Demon track & field and cross country."
This year, DePaul track expanded the invitation to all its track alumni. Alumni ranging from Nate Blackman from the class of 1951 to Stephanie Williams class of 2009 enjoyed the chance to meet and talk about Blue Demon track & field and cross country.
Track Alumni are invited to mark their calendar for the 2009 Track & Field and Cross Country Alumni Dinner on November 27 at 7 p.m. in the Hall of Fame Foyer of McGrath Arena. For more information, call Marge Mazik at 773-325-7240.
