Sept. 20, 2014 — Enrique Olives picked-up from where he left-off at last month’s tournament by topping the DLSAANC’s annual golf fundraiser, the Fil-Am Championship, today at the par-71 Shadow Lakes golf course in Brentwood. Enrique shot an impressive 2 over par 73 to win lowest gross score — and Fil-Am champion — honors by a comfortable 6-stroke lead over runner-up Ron Riego de Dios. Enrique was actually just up by a stroke at the turn but put away Ron at holes # 15 to 16 where Enrique built a 4 stroke margin.
Thirty-two alumni and friends competed in this year’s tournament. Froi Lomotan’s net 67 edged the DLSAANC’s ever-supportive Atenean friend Sonny Ramirez by a stroke in Division A. Froi’s carpool was trophy-laden as his guest Rodel Hubilla’s net 65 was 3 strokes better than Mandy Rosales to ran away with Division B honors.

October 28, 2015 — Former DLSAANC President Jose L. Batto, Jr. (GS’52, HS’56, BSME’61) passed on early this morning after being rushed to the hospital by his son Jamie the previous night, when Joe complained of severe stomach pain. The cause turned out to be internal bleeding which the doctors unsuccessfully failed to cure leading to Joe’s untimely demise hours later.
Joe was among the senior alumni who were enlisted after Sonny Juico revived the association in 1982 after years of dormancy. Joe was particularly active in the outdoor activities — picnics, camping, rafting — but could wow them all as well with his moves on the dance floor. Joe eventually became president of the association in 1997 after several stints with the board of directors. A Lasallian throughout his school years, Joe continued to serve the association even after his 1997 term and attended the recent summer picnics at St. Mary’s College after surviving a bout with liver cancer, the same disease that his wife Helen Raimundo succumbed to in 2003.
We will miss you, Joe! Rest in peace!
Done, Joe! I’ve corrected the original posting which was inadvertently attributed to Irvin. (more…)
There is a very inspiring movie called “When the Game Stands Tall” that is currently showing in local theaters which may be of interest to La Salle students and alumni. It is based on the true story of the De La Salle High School football team in Concord and the coach that led them on an unbelievable 151-game winning streak from 1992 to 2004. By the way, their school colors are also green and white. (more…)
