Throughout the year, alumni return to RCS to challenge the players currently playing on their former teams. Each event brings back memories of when the alumni played for the Eagles!
Alumni Games 2012 was held on November 24 and alumni turned out to either play or support the event! The purpose of this basketball event is to honor the memory of our alumni who have preceded us to Heaven. The final alumni game of the evening is named the 34th Annual Peter Branson Memorial Scholarship Game in memory of Peter Branson, Class of 1978, who went to Heaven in 1979 after a boating accident. Funds from the Alumni Games are used to fund short-term need-based scholarships and one (or more) scholarship(s) to a graduating senior each June, who will be attending a Christian college.
Alumni who returned to provide the competition for the Boys JV, Varsity Girls’ and Varsity Boys’ Basketball Teams included: JV Boys’ Game: Albert Castaneda (1984), Kent Ha (2009), Chad Nepstad (1989), Cameron Tracy (1994), Ben Warner (1997); Varsity Girls Game: Kristen (Hopken) Borne (2008), Michaela Holgate (2010), Katie Hopken (2010), Erin Johnson (2000), Kali (Rumrill) McWilliams (2005), Elaine (Kreiss) Mendenhall (1994), Jackie Moog (1983), Tanisha (Nimmer) Walton (1989), Victoria Pouncy (2010), Amanda Rumrill (2001), Rachel Uy (2012); Varsity Boys Game: Albert Castaneda (1984), Andy Castaneda (1996), Kalvin Charles (2012), Robby Engeldinger (2007), Kent Ha (2009), Jack Holmlund (2011), Chad Nepstad (1989), Cody Piccillo (2009), Ben Warner (1997), and Jordan Weaver (2007).
