St. Sebastian's Honors Andy McAuliffe '48

On October 19, St. Sebastian’s honored one of its longest tenured alumni, Andy McAuliffe '48, P'75,'78,'79,'81,'86, GP'09,'15,'16,'21,'23. Wearing a St. Sebastian’s clerical stole from the 1940’s, Fr. John Arens, joined by nearly 50 of Andy’s family and friends, blessed a plaque that is now permanently installed in Arrows Hall in recognition of Andy’s athletic prowess, as well as his lifelong commitment to St. Sebastian’s. In a remarkable feat, Andy earned 14 varsity letters from 1945-1948. Competing in football, hockey, and baseball for four years and basketball for two seasons is impressive in any age, but is unfathomable in today’s era of athletic specialization. Andy’s brother, Lawrence ’48, graduated with him, beginning a long line of McAuliffes to follow as Andy’s five sons and five of his grandsons all went on to attend St. Sebastian’s. Andy is truly an Arrow Forever!
