A Decade to Remember and Build-On for The Future


A Decade to Remember and Build-On for The Future is a gathering of athletes, alumni and friends honoring Coach Gary Richert for his leadership and success on the court and on the field from 1970-1980.

History was made during this decade. The first-ever team from St. John’s Military Academy earned their well-deserved place in the WISAA State Championship Tournament. Not only did they play at the Milwaukee Arena, but they also made it to the championship game versus Racine St. Catherine’s. This team's success was the first step forward of many, and we are excited to continue to progress today.

Please join us for this fun event as we remember this pivotal decade in St. John’s Military Academy athletics and celebrate how we are building on this legacy. Through a strategic partnership with DME Academy, out of Daytona, Florida - SJNA now offers a unique pathway for student-athletes that demand more from their athletic and academic experiences.
