In April, the four Riordan Houses went head-to-head at the first annual Crusader Games, which hosted contests of athletics, wit and skill. Students competed throughout the day in dodgeball, basketball, arm wrestling, chess, academic games, and other activities. Watch the video recap here
At the end of the day the House of Pilar was named the winner of the Crusader Games, and had their House permanently engraved on the Silver Gauntlet trophy. At the conclusion of the Crusader Games, the House of Cana was announced as the overall winner of the year-long House Competition.

Legendary Riordan Coach Gil Haskell and All-Nor Cal linemen Michael Cunnie ’69, both part of Riordan’s first-ever championship football team in 1967, were inducted into the SF Prep Sports Hall of Fame on May 19.
Coach Haskell played an integral role in the 1967 Championship team before going on to coach at USC and in the NFL, where he won a Super Bowl with Mike Holmgren and the Green Bay Packers in 1996. Cunnie was a standout All-WCAL athlete in football and track.
The induction event was filled with Riordan alumni and friends of the WCAL and AAA communities. Both Haskell and Cunnie delivered humorous and heartfelt speeches to more than 500 attendees.
This week our community raised $330,000 for Riordan’s new field. We can’t thank you enough for your generosity.
Best yet, ALL contributions will be matched by the challenge grant from the Mayer Family bringing our 2018 Giving Week total to $660,000! While fundraising efforts are not finished for this project, we are significantly closer to our goal.
If you would like to make a bonus gift, you can do so here.
Students will compete in the pole vault, 800m, relays and other events. Read more
