Alumni House Closed in Honor of Labor Day*

* Remembering the Alumni & Friends who Renovated the Alumni House -

Check our website at: foa1220.org


The Story of CHARLIE'S ANGELS Once the purchase of the building was finalized, FRIENDS OF ANGELS president Chuck (Charlie) Wood enlisted the help of Jim Cramer '59 and Earl Wirtz '58—two highly skilled alumni who spearheaded the renovation. They recruited other talented volunteers, and the group became affectionately known as "Charlie's Angels." And they truly were. Each one devoted hundreds of hours of time and talent to the Alumni House renovation, eventually expanding their services to the school, where they completed over 100 projects between 2008-2014 saving St. Catherine's an estimated $75,000. Check out a partial list of their school projects below. A simple thank you was all they required to continue their service.

This is truly is an amazing group of SCHS Alumni & Friends. Charlie's Angels at Work Left to Right: Joe Woitach '59, Earl Wirtz '58, Ed Howard (SCHS Honorary Grad 2009), Jim Cramer '59, Tom Mielcarek '63, Dan Bentz '58, Ralph Mazzie '70, Dave Benjamin '61 (not pictured—golfing or fishing that day)

Upcoming Angel Athletic Events Monday August 28th


Football (1-0 Metro Classic Conference, 2-1 Overall) Friday night the Angels football team traveled to Watertown to face off against Luther Prep in the first Metro Classic Conference game of the season. Luther Prep kicked off the scoring in the first quarter but the Angels came right back to make the game 8-7 on a Issac Cantu 4 yard touchdown from Eddie Vinson. Luther Prep scored on their next drive, but the Angels were able to take a 16-15 lead after Imarion Holder took the ball up the middle for a 15 yard touchdown run. The most exciting play of the evening came right before halftime as Lamont Hamilton took the kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown to give the Angels a 24-21 lead at halftime. The Angels defense played very well in the 2nd half as they did not allow anymore points. Holder added another touchdown with a 39 yard touchdown run and the Angels were able to close out the game with a 30-21 victory. Imarion Hold led the offense with over 100 yards rushing on the night.

Girls Tennis (0-1 Metro Classic Conference, 0-5 Overall) Thursday night the St. Catherine’s/Lutheran tennis team traveled to St. Thomas More to kick off their Metro Classic Conference season. The team played one of their best matches of the year and battled the Cavaliers throughout the afternoon. Unfortunately for the Angels they didn’t have enough in the end as Thomas More walked away with the 4-3 victory. In singles competition Marissa Feuerstein was able to earn a 2-6, 7-5, 10-5 victory. In doubles competition the team of Isabella Lillo/Elena Gaither defeated their opponents 6-1, 6-1 and the team of Michelle Perez/Leila Hadley-Cathey defeated their opponents 6-2, 7-5.

Girls Volleyball (0-1 Metro Classic Conference, 2-3 Overall) Tuesday night the Angels girls volleyball team traveled to Milwaukee Lutheran for their first dual match of the season. The Angels came ready to play and performed extremely well as they were able to defeat the Red Knights 25-21, 21-25, 25-18, 25-20. Katie Winkler led the team as she had 11 kills and 14 assists. Macieana Trujillo was able to add 11 kills and 5 aces, while Londyn Pardo had 6 kills, 7 assists and 4 aces. Thursday night the girls volleyball team traveled to St. Thomas More. The Cavaliers proved why they are looking to make a deep run into the playoffs as their height and experience proved to be too much for the Angels to handle as the Cavaliers handed the Angels a 25-10, 25-11, 25-8 loss. Macieana Trujillo led the team with 3 kills and 2 blocks. Aniyah Price added 2 kills.

Boys Volleyball (0-1 Southern Lakes Conference, 0-2 Overall) Boys volleyball opened up their season on Tuesday night as they hosted Dominican in a boys volleyball non-conference matchup. The Angels played very well for their first game of the year and showed promise throughout the match, however Dominican was a little too much to handle as they defeated the Angels 25-22, 15-25, 25-19, 25-18. Lucas Adams led the way as he had 4 assists, 3 digs and 1 ace. Sam Pitrof added 4 kills and an ace, Ryan To had 2 kills and Caleb Scott had 2 blocks. Wednesday night the Angels boys volleyball team traveled to Westosha Central to kick off Southern Lakes Conference play. The Angels grew each set and played much better as the game went along, unfortunately Westosha proved why they are looking to win another conference championship as they were able to defeat the Angels 25-12, 25-14, 25-20.

Boys Soccer (0-0-0 Metro Classic Conference, 1-0-1 Overall) The boys soccer team kicked off their season as they traveled to Wisconsin Lutheran for a non-conference soccer matchup. The Angels played exceptional defense all game long as they held Wisconsin Lutheran to only 1 goal. The Angels themselves scored a goal in the first half as Juan Bueno found Angel Galvan in the 20th minute. Wisconsin Lutheran scored 10 minutes later and those would be the only two goals of the game as the game would end in a 1-1 tie. Friday night at the Beres soccer tournament hosted by Catholic Memorial at Waukesha South, the Angels played extremely well on both offense and defense to land themselves a 3-0 win over Carmen and propel them into the championship on Saturday afternoon. Abel Galvan led the way for the Angels as he scored all 3 goals unassisted. The defense of the Angels also played extremely well as they gave Carmen very few chances to score. Saturday afternoon the Angels soccer team returned to the Beres soccer tournament to face off against host school Catholic Memorial in the championship game. Abel Galvan scored in the 19th minute off an assist from Andrew Babington and with Edgar Cesar-Olivares stopping 6 Crusader shots the Angels were able to hold off Catholic Memorial for a 1-0 victory and winning the championship in the Beres tournament for back to back years.

Girls Golf Wednesday afternoon the girls golf team headed to Shoop Park to participate in a triangular with The Prairie School and St. Thomas More. The young Angels golf team continues to improve as the season progresses and while they weren’t able to have enough golfers to put together a team score, the team performed very well. Ella Pollock led the three Angels golfers with a 61 on the 9 hole course at Shoop.
