Bron Bacevich Memorial Stadium Re-Dedication Ceremony
On Friday, September 6, 2019 Roger Bacon christened the new with a bit of the old. A who-is-who of Roger Bacon legends, alumni, students, family, and friends returned to Bron Bacevich Memorial Stadium for our re-dedication ceremony.
A capacity crowd was on hand for the re-dedication after the completion of the first of a multi-phase renovation project. President Tom Burke ’69 was joined at midfield by four of Roger Bacon’s all-time icons: former principal Father John Bok, ’53; state champion boys soccer coach Mr. Dick Arszman ’59; Dr. Bernie Bacevich ’59, son of our legendary coach; and band director Wes Neal to re-dedicate and bless our historic venue.
A reception before the ceremony reunited many athletic greats, administrators, distinguished alumni, and friends of Roger Bacon.
Our football team then took the field against Newport Central Catholic. Junior Corey Kiner led the way with more than 200 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns as our Spartans ran away with a 41-14 victory, taking their record to 2-0 on the season. It was a great night to be a Spartan!
