This Special Page is Dedicated to the St. Aloysius Crusaders of 1952 to 1956. Materials provided by good friend Sid Raymond.
In 1952, the St. Aloysius Crusaders came of age and won their first Prep League championship. It would be the Scarlet Knights' only outright title in the old Prep League, when the state's highest classification was Class AA. If our information is correct, we recall that Aloysius won the South Louisiana title, but lost out in the state finals. However, this in unconfirmed. They had an airtight defense and one of their victims was Jesuit, by a 7-0 score.
