Message from the President

312 AD the persecutions had abated somewhat but Christianity was in no way an accepted religion in Rome. In October, the forces of the future emperor Constantine were arrayed for battle at the Milvian Bridge against the forces of Maxentius. It was there that Constantine had a vision of the cross and heard the words In hoc signo vinces ­ "In this sign you will conquer." Constantine had the symbol carried before him into battle, won the day, and eventually became sole emperor. As emperor he made Christianity a legal religion in the empire, called for the Council of Nicea, and eventually became a Christian himself. Christianity spread rapidly through the empire and quickly became the state religion. The Council of Nicea brought together bishops from throughout the world and laid the foundation for the Nicean Creed that we profess together at Mass on Sundays. When depicting the sign Constantine saw, some artists interpret it as a simple cross. Others interpret it as the Greek letter chi superimposed over the Greek letter rho. These letters are the first two letters in Christ's name in Greek and have become a familiar symbol of Christ over the centuries. Here at Holy Name one sees both interpretations. The plain cross is used on the front of the building, on our sign on the front lawn, and over the stage in the auditorium. The chi-rho is used on our school seal above the In Hoc Vinces motto. Either way the symbol is depicted, the meaning remains the same. The symbols point us to Christ. It is He who is our Savior and Lord. By embracing the cross, or more precisely, He whom it represents, we are saved. We can do this because Christ has conquered sin and death and in His victory is our hope that sin and death have no power over us. The cross, the symbol of Christ's passion and resurrection, is truly the sign through which we are able to conquer all that would keep us from eternal glory. The next time you see the cross think of Constantine who, so many centuries ago, looked to the sky and heard a voice deep within say "In Hoc Vinces." God Bless!

Dear Alumni and Friends: Symbols are an important part of the life of communities and schools have many that are integral to their identity. Here at Holy Name we have our school seal and emblazoned upon it is our motto In Hoc Vinces ­ In this you will conquer. But what does it mean and from where did it originate? The answer to those questions requires us to journey back through the mists of history to the fourth century A.D. in the Roman Empire. Christians had been sporadically and brutally persecuted by the Empire for over two hundred years. In

The Mission of Holy Name High School is to provide a genuine Catholic Education for young men and women with opportunities to experience Academic Excellence in a Caring Community of Faith in order to develop the whole person who seeks to live the Gospel Values.

The Unsung Hero of Holy Name

On Sunday, May 21st, the administration, faculty, former faculty, and staff gathered to honor a Holy Name legend: Mr. Tom Dobroskey. An elegant reception was held in the Franco-Post auditorium to celebrate the memorable teaching career of such a wellrespected academic leader. Tom Dobroskey began his teaching career at Holy Name in 1965, the same year Holy Name opened its doors to the feeder parishes of the area. At that time, no one could have ever imagined what an impact this one person would have on the countless students who have passed through the doors of Holy Name. Mr. Dobroskey has served the school in numerous capacities throughout his 42 years at Holy Name. He began his career as a member of the English department, and became moderator of the school newspaper, "LaBaron." Before school, Tom spent countless hours keeping the AV department up and running for the faculty. He also knew the importance of fund raising for catholic schools, and organized a yearly "Happy Louie" polka party. Math teacher Pat Murphy remembers that these parties not only raised money, but they also created fun and served to build a great bond among the faculty members at that time. For the past 3 years, Tom has co-chaired the Middle States Committee for Accreditation. He and MaryAnn Buchanan spent countless hours planning, organizing and implementing ideas which will ensure the success of Holy Name well into the future. As the years continued at HN, Tom began to realize his real passion for teaching could be found in the Theology courses at HN. Tom became the Senior Theology teacher, taking on the responsibility of preparing seniors for their next phrase of life. Mr. Dobroskey imparted valuable morals and ideals to his students. He took his job seriously, acting justly and fairly, and encouraging his students to become thinkers and leaders. As Mr. Dobroskey strengthened his Theology curriculum, he also became the Student Council moderator. He led the students in a kind and gentle way, encouraging them to face their responsibilities as the leaders of the school. Whether organizing activities for Homecoming, Spirit Week or Catholic School's Week, Tom always stressed the importance of paying attention to even the smallest detail. It is because of his guidance and motivation that Holy Name's student government has evolved into a true leadership council. Since the birth of Holy Name, Tom's legacy has been one of intellect, consistency, and above all, Christianity. He has taken pride in all his accomplishments and has achieved success. Tom's departure will be like a "black hole" for the Holy Name community. We may be able to find someone to fill his position as a teacher, but it will be very difficult to find someone to fill his "place." Tom personifies the mission statement of Holy Name; he has provided a genuine Catholic Education for young men and women while striving to develop the whole person. He has provided thousands of students with the opportunity to experience academic excellence in his classroom, in a caring community of Faith. Tom lives the Gospel values each day of his life; he has been a stellar role model for his students, faculty, and staff of Holy Name. He is the pillar of the Holy Name community, our "unsung hero." We thank you for your 42 years of service, love and commitment to Holy Name High School.

College football fans know that the center of the football universe is located in South Bend, Indiana, home of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Holy Name High School is fortunate to have one of its own football alumni playing for the Irish. Dan Chervanick, Valedictorian of the Class of 2002 and a senior at Notre Dame, began his football career with the Fighting Irish as a walk-on playing defensive line. His coaches recognized his work ethic and determination from the start and he slowly began earning more playing time. The 6-1, 255-pound Chervanick played in four games last season as a reserve defensive tackle and one game in 2004. He was moved to

offense in the spring and is listed as the third-team center in the Fighting Irish media guide. He graduated in May with a degree in accounting and

history with a 3.60 gradepoint average. He is enrolled in graduate studies. Dan's Holy Name highlights include being a three-year, two-way starter and letter

Holy Name High School is fortunate to have some special athletes that participate in sports that are not offered as a team sport by the school. Two of those athletes this past winter were Lindsay DuAime, who was a swimmer and Jon Bradshaw, a diver. Both athletes qualified for the District Championships. Jonathan had a very successful diving season, qualifying for both Districts and States and finishing with a Gold Medal in the District III meet. Many HN faithful are not aware of the fact that Holy Name students make up one of the best young Ice Hockey teams in the County. Holy Name Ice Hockey was founded during the 2001-2002 school year. This year's team finished second in the league. Holy Name Ice Hockey was represented by four seniors; Captain Adam Goss, Nick Igusky, Pat Schenk, and Eric Ciabattoni. On the hardwood, the boy's basketball team had another impressive year. Coach Lloyd Wolf's teams have always had a long standing tradition of excellence. This year was no different. The team finished their season with a 17-8 season. Lloyd coached his 1000th game as the Blue Jays head man. The Jays finished second in the division and advanced to the District III quarter finals. Sophmore Casey Casantini and Senior Nick Rivera earned All-Division honors and Matt Browna and Billy Stanton earned honorable mention all division. Senior Nick Rivera earned MVP honors. The varsity girl's basketball team won the Boyertown Holiday Tounament and Qualified for the District playoffs for the 34th consecutive year.

This year's teams continued their rise to prominence by producing some dominating performances by both boys and girls in some of the biggest meets in Berks County. The boy's team was a force to be feared by opponents. With the likes of AllCounty and All-State sprinter Chris Muvdi tearing up the track, teams competing against Holy Name had no easy task. Muvdi lit up the stadium as he sprinted to a state championship while running on a sore hamstring. Andrew Gray broke the school record in the 1600 meter run and Patrick Buckley broke a school record in the 800 meter run. Chris Muvdi was the County Champion for the second year in a row by beating the entire left to right Chris Muvdi and Kelly Magrann 2006-2007 Most Outstanding Athletes and Kelly county in the 100 and 200 meter McElroy and Mark Keeley 2006-2007 Most Ideal Athletes events.

The schools Most Ideal Athletes were Kelly McElroy and Mark Keeley and the Most Outstanding Athletes of the year were Kelly Magrann and Chris Muvdi.


When the tarps were pulled off of the athletic fields in the Forino Sports Complex, one team in particular had something to prove. Coming off of a miserable 0-15 2005 campaign, the Varsity baseball team looked forward to silencing their critics and improving on their record. The 2006 baseball team entered this season with great optimism and high expectations. After last season, many felt that setting goals of making the County and District Playoffs were unrealistic. This team was made up of players who have a great work ethic and a true desire to help the Holy Name baseball program regain the respect that it earned in the 1990's when former Head Coach George Vogel took the team to two County Championship games in a four year span. Only a heartbreaking extra inning loss to Wyomissing in the final week of the season kept this team from reaching it's County playoff goal. This was a true testament to their hard work. Key wins over Daniel Boone, Kutztown, playoff bound Twin Valley and a must win over Central Catholic helped this team earn the respect they set out to obtain from the beginning of the year. The Jays qualified for the District III tournament and battled their opponent at Hershey High School like true warriors. Coach Tom Frees has begun to rebuild the ball club and will surely improve again next season when he sees 7 of his 9 starters return to the diamond. Anthony Furillo and Casey Casantini earned MVP honors. On the opposite side of the complex, the girl's Varsity Softball team has had their share of success over the past 12 seasons, qualifying for the Playoffs 10 of those 12 seasons and winning the Division title for the past 5 years. This season proved to be another chance to continue that tradition. With Senior pitcher Megan Migliore, senior infielder Allison Sterner, and Junior field general Lachen Hartz leading the way, the Blue Jays had all of the ingredients to have a successful season. The team was in a first place tie with one week left in the regular season and determined to win it's 6 straight division title. After a disappointing loss to rival Wyomissing, the 6th straight title was not meant to be. In the end, the team came away with great memories and lessons learned about competing in high school athletics. Marquerite Collins and Lachen Hartz earned MVP honors. Playing on the big stage that is the stadium field, under the lights was our girl's soccer team. Their 2006 season proved to be tremendous. The team was in the playoff hunt until the last week of the season. Posting big wins against rival Central Catholic, Brandywine Heights, Antietam, and Oley were just a few reasons to celebrate the team's accomplishments. They also had a huge win against Berks County powerhouse Kutztown. The girl's ended the season with a 7-6 league record and an 8-8 record overall. There were 10 different goal scorers and 12 girls who registered assists. They scored 33 goals and gave up only 27 while posting four shutouts. Freshman Lauren Mastromarino earned MVP honors.

Extravaganza XXV "Simply the Best" links the past, the present, and looks to the future!!

This year's profile for our Extravaganza chairpersons takes us back to familiar faces, Lloyd and Gerry Wolf. Although both are retired, Lloyd from Holy Name and Gerry from Twin Valley, they remain active and involved with family, community and outside interests. Lloyd can be found swinging the club on the golf course, as well as, in his familiar role of boys' basketball coach here at HN. Gerry's interests include: spending time with her 4 beautiful granddaughters, cooking and traveling with friends. As the 25th anniversary of Extravaganza approached it was Lloyd who stepped up and asked if he and Gerry could chair this year's event. It is only fitting that he would like to once again assume the leadership role as he was instrumental in bringing the original concept to Holy Name in 1981. He had the vision and faith to believe that hard work, combined with community support, would result in financial success for Holy Name and a gala social event for Berks County. Lloyd and Gerry would like to thank all of the parents, volunteers and business participants who are the reasons this event has succeeded and continues to flourish. When asked to list some goals for this year's event both responded, "To make Extravaganza XXV the most successful event ever and to have fun renewing old acquaintances and making new friends." We, at Holy Name, welcome back Lloyd and Gerry Wolf and encourage each and everyone of you to somehow become involved in this tremendous event. You will enjoy the camaraderie, meeting new friends and the feeling that you have contributed to the on-going efforts to give our students a quality education.
