Over 70 Return for Men's Basketball Reunion at Catawba College

Seventy-one former Catawba College basketball players returned to campus February 9 and 10, 2007 for a reunion.

The weekend began with a Friday evening reception in the Meyer Auxiliary Gymnasium that gave all a chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Saturday featured lunch and several former players speaking to the group; their remarks evoked both laughter along with some tears as the gathering proved an emotional time for those attending.

Speaking were former players and Catawba Sports Hall of Fame members, Bob Flynn' 60 and Eric Harris' 78, along with two ex-players, Tom Bonebrake' 75 and Marvin Moore' 99, who offered the unique perspective of having played at Catawba as well as being assistant coaches at Catawba. Legendary former head Coach Sam Moir, made remarks recalling his lengthy, 34-year tenure at Catawba. He spoke with emotion of the many great teams, players and lives he had touched during his years at the College  (1960-1994).

Those at the reunion also watched the Catawba men's basketball team battle Newberry after the luncheon. During halftime of the team's 89-80 win over Newberry, all 71 returning alumni were introduced to fans in attendance.
