50th Anniversary of the Loyola-Ed Meagher Sports Tournament



This coming January, the Loyola community will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Loyola-Ed Meagher Winter Sports Tournament. In 1971, when the inaugural tournament of four Juvenile hockey teams was reduced to only three teams during a massive snowstorm, those in attendance that year could never have imagined that the tournament would still be going strong some fifty years later!

A special Opening Ceremony will take place at noon on Friday, January 24th where we will pay tribute to past Honorary Chairpersons, Ed Meagher Scholarship winners and members of the '96 Juvenile Hockey Warriors.

The tournament runs from January 20th-25th. The cost of admission is $5 for an "All tournament pass".

A complete schedule of games can be found below:

Wrestling Schedule: 1:30-3:30 in the Atrium on Friday, Jan. 24

The tournament's primary source of income is from the program advertising revenues and donations from patrons. In total, over 700 copies of the souvenir program are printed. This year the program will feature archive photos and articles celebrating our 50 years. Income from the program pays for the tournament operating costs, and, any surplus is donated to support student athletics at Loyola. You may download the Program Advertising Form here
