Saint Ignatius Athletics to Celebrate 1988 & 2008 Football Teams on October 13

By Athletic Department, 09/20/18, 3:30PM EDT


2018 marks two notable anniversaries for Saint Ignatius football.

Thirty years ago, the Wildcats won the program's first-ever state championship during the memorable 1988 campaign.

Ten years ago, the Football Cats captured the school's 10th football title during the eventful 2008 season.

The Saint Ignatius Athletic Department will honor both teams at the Wildcats' game vs. Archbishop Moeller on Saturday, October 13 at Byers Field at 3 p.m. A commemorative video will welcome the members of the 1988 and 2008 teams to the field to form a tunnel for this year's Cats to run through. 

The Wildcats will also welcome the 1988 and 2008 squads to Friday afternoon practice on October 12, followed by a reception with pizza and on campus. 

Members of the 1988 and 2008 teams will receive an email invitation with further details leading up to the game. Questions? Contact Joe Ginley at

We hope to see you then!
