YONKERS, NY — April 7, 2016 — Yonkers native Patrick Wareham was among the stars who recently led Loyola School to a 5-0 record in a St. Petersburg, FL, baseball spring training tournament. Loyola School was one of a group of schools from the U.S. and Canada who visited Florida two weeks ago to compete in a non-elimination tournament organized by Tampa Bay Spring Training. In the tournament Wareham (a senior and a captain) had 5 hits, 3 RBIs, scored 6 runs, and stole 7 bases. The Florida baseball series was Loyola School’s first since May 2015 when the team captured its first NYCAL Championship in 15 years by defeating Browning 8-5.
Loyola School was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1900 to provide an educational program and environment which at that time were only available in private, non-Catholic, college preparatory schools. Loyola’s mission was, and is, to provide an independent school education in the Ignatian tradition for those who value and are prepared to support this type of educational environment. Today, Loyola School is a Catholic, Jesuit, independent, coeducational, college preparatory, secondary day school located in New York City. Among the famous graduates of Loyola School is former NY Giants owner Wellington Mara.
