Nerds Gone Wild at Niagara Catholic

Mon, Jul 17th 2017 03:00 pm
The 1980s never looked so ... nerdy.
On Saturday, Nerds Gone Wild performed at Niagara Catholic Jr./Sr. High School as part of "Big Red Fest" and Alumni Weekend. Dressed to impress, well, dressed like what's shown in the photos, anyway, the five-piece had the crowd on its feet, performing the '80s' biggest hits.
The event was well-attended, as hundreds of alums, their families and friends, plus some teachers and school administrators, filled half of the football field.
On Saturday morning, the school's sixth annual 5K race/1.5-mile walk drew a record 130-plus participants. It began at NC and crisscrossed through the streets of LaSalle.
This year's event was in memory of Raphael Gonzalez, a 2015 graduate. Proceeds will go toward a scholarship in his memory.
The first-place finisher overall was Timothy Metivier, while the first-place overall female finisher was Mary Gallo.
Liz Colvin served as race coordinator.
Other Alumni Weekend events included an awards dinner Friday at The Como Restaurant. Honorees included former Principal Robert DiFrancesco (Distinguished Alumnus), Matt Clingersmith, Richard Hockenos and the 1980-1981 championship basketball team (Athletic Hall of Fame); and the Marty Violante Memorial Golf Classic on Monday at the Niagara Frontier Golf Club.
