Phillies’ Green at Sallies’ fete


Phillies Manager Dallas Green will be the principal speaker at tomorrow night's 32nd annual banquet of the Salesianum Alumni Association at Padua Academy Cafetorium.


Sallies' graduate Vince Rizzo will serve as toastmaster at the 6:30 p.m. banquet which will honor 81 senior athletes from 11 sports. Each senior will receive a St. Francis de Sales medal inscribed with his initials.


Representing football at the head table will be Dick Anderson, assistant coach at Penn State; Eagles linebacker John Bunting; former Sals' player Kevin Conlin, who completed his collegiate football career last fall at Rutgers; and former Sallies' captain Kevin Reilly, who played for the Miami Dolphins, Eagles and New England Patriots following an outstanding career at Villanova.


Sidney Maree, a distance runner from South Africa now attending Villanova, will be at the head table, along with Delaware soccer coach Loren Kline and his MVP Scott Thompson. Another speaker will be Salesianum graduate Steve "Sid" Cassidy, a record-setting swimmer at North Carolina State currently ranked fourth in the world by the Professional Marathon Swimming Federation.


"We expect 600 at the banquet, but we still have some tickets available," said ticket chairman Ed Tucker last night. Tickets may be obtained at Salesianum School.
