The 1982 Cathedral Irish Boys basketball team under the tutelage of Head Coach Tom “Supersub” O’Brien played every game on the road in the pre-Welch Activity Center days. Those dapper young men in their suits and ties traveled to take on some of Indiana’s finest basketball teams.
That team was the first from a Catholic school to win the Indianapolis City Basketball Championship. They defeated the #6, #7, and #12 ranked teams in Indiana on the way to the championship.
The 1982 Irish won the sectional, regional, and semi-state championships, finishing 27-3.
We are welcoming back members of the 1982 team for our game vs. Franklin Central on January 28th in the Welch Activity Center. We will ask all members of the team and staff to join us on the floor to be recognized. We will also recognize all alumni basketball players in the stands that evening. Varsity tip-off is approximately 7:40.
