Coach Dave Doemel ’71 Reaches Milestone

Scattered throughout Ned McGraw Gymnasium on Friday night were reminders of 50 years of an incredible athletic legacy for Dave Doemel, from teammates during his playing days at Christian Brothers Academy to the countless players he coached in both basketball and baseball at the school. As the final buzzer sounded, the Brothers had secured a 66-48 victory over Columbia in Suburban Council boys’ basketball action. With the win, Doemel surpassed Bill Telasky — the man he played for —to become the program’s all-time leader with 335 varsity victories.
