We know that the Momencs St. Judes High School boys competed in basketball and hockey. We believe that baseball and track,
possibly even football, were offered at one time as well. If you have any specific information regarding the Black Knight
athletic program please write to us via the means listed below.
Chorus was definitely an option at Momence St. Judes. Band, dances, and other clubs and activities were also a part of
the school's educational opportunities.
**From Alphe Seymour:
"I am an alumnus of SJS. I have put together a vast amount of info about SJS. I have put together every yearbook, pictures,
school songs, school news papers, video clips, memories of many of the alumni, and just about every name of the alumni. I
have sent a CD (of this information) to Patrick Zugg, who lives in Momence. His insurance business is on Washington Street.
He is the son of the farmer who ran the St. Jude Ranch in the 1950's and 60's. Good luck!"
**From Greg Holler:
"I attended St. Jude freshman and sophomore years, Fall 1966 to Summer 1968. Information you may be missing is:
colors: Black and Orange
Team Nickmane: Black Knights
I played basketball and hockey and I sang in the choir
while I was attending. The most notable singing engagement we had was singing at the policeman's mass in the cathedral
in Chicago. Thanks for keeping the memories alive."
We'd like to offer thanks to Dr. Malachy McCarthy with the Claretian Fathers in
Chicago for several bits of information he provided regarding St. Judes' history, as well as
the Montay dissertation for information found in that article.
