Logan inducts new athletic hall of fame class
Submitted By New Haven Unified School District
James Logan High School's Athletic Hall of Fame will induct a new class of honorees - including five individuals, a near-state champion basketball team and a pair of highly-regarded boosters - at a banquet next month.
Inductees include Mike Louisiana (class of 1966), who went on to win a national collegiate championship in the discus; Gary Alexander (1982), who played baseball in the Philadelphia Phillies and Texas Rangers organizations; Tuineau Alipate (1984), who went on to play pro football for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings; Artemio Flores (1994), a state wrestling champion; and Talia Stewart (2004), a three-time state track and field champion.
Also being inducted are coach Will Biggs' 1985 state runner-up boys basketball team, as well as Sam and Gilda Cavallaro, arguably the athletic department's biggest boosters for more than 30 years.
Tickets for the banquet, which begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, at the Fremont Marriot Silicon Valley, are priced at $65 ($600 for a table of 10). To reserve your seat, contact Sarah Muse at email@example.com or by calling 510-471-2520, ext. 60118.
