The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics hosted Alumni Day in February to honor the 1,000-point career scorers in Stritch basketball history. 

In all, 47 men and women have scored 1,000 or more points in their basketball careers at Stritch. Twenty-eight alumni athletes attended the award ceremony, including all-time leading scorers Trey Triplett, ’10, of Lisle, Illinois, (2,210 points) and Julie Raeder, ’15, of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, (1,844 points). 

The University, led by President James P. Loftus and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Tim Van Alstine, honored the athletes on the court at both the men’s and women’s games and each received a commemorative basketball with their names, years played and career point total. 




"It is always great to reconnect with friends and former teammates,” Triplett said. “The halftime ceremonies were wonderful. I look forward to future alumni events and appreciate the athletics department reaching out and acknowledging the past."



Van Alstine was pleased to welcome the alumni back to campus.



"It was obvious they appreciated the recognition, and, honestly, they deserved it," Van Alstine said. "There is a high level of passion and loyalty among our former student-athletes. This speaks volumes to the positive experiences they had while attending Stritch."


The University welcomes basketball alumni and their families back to campus for an Alumni Day reunion every year.
