St. Mary getting better
By Jason Kersey
Mount St. Mary isn’t exactly known for its football tradition.
But legendary coach Joe Weber, mainly known for his work in Davis, returned to his alma mater in 2002 to try to make it better.
When Weber arrived, however, some things looked familiar to him.
“We had the same facilities as when I graduated in 1962,” Weber said.
Namely, the lights. There was a notebook item about it in the paper the other day, but here’s a story that amplifies the St. Mary light situation even more.
During the fourth quarter of a 2004 game against Newcastle, the lights at St. Mary’s stadium went out completely. The game had to be moved to C.B. Speegle Stadium at Capitol Hill, which is about a mile from St. Mary.
The lights have since been replaced, as has a lot of other equipment. Donations have been made, meaning upgrades for the football program.
It’s unlikely that St. Mary will ever be a state title contender. The school is much more of an academic school that a athletic one. It’s like a Princeton of high schools.
