How I found out about this website: Bill Puetz sent me email in 2005 with the details (thank you Anita for doing the work).

Comment: 2007, Aquinas wants to go back in time and pickup information concerning the championship Teams at Marrieta, St. Marys, and Dwight Assumption. Therefore, does anyone have the individual records for the (Fall) '58, '59, '60 school years (no losses, therefore the individual game scores for those football seasons)? Other sports and activities will probably be important also.
You all should be receiving the Aquinas High School "ALUMNI NEWS"

The April Issue also contained a great article by Fr. Bob Roh; "I don't care, as long as it is Catholic."
Please be mindful of the fact that Aquinas is seeking more participation in the annual reunion held by Aquinas each year. This means participation by Marrieta Assumption grads, St. Marys grads, and Dwight Assumption grads.
