Basketball Brunch Honors Past Players
More than 70 alumni/ae and friends gathered Saturday morning, February 14, in the Haverford Dining Center to honor four heroes of Haverford’s basketball past at the second annual basketball brunch. President Tom Tritton welcomed the guests and Director of Major Gifts William Roth spoke on the meaning of winning and success in the liberal-arts college atmosphere. Coaches Jim Osborne and Mike Mucci introduced women’s team seniors Caitlin Kimura and Cham Sante and men’s co-captains Mike Kelly and Mark Gabriel.
The honorees spoke eloquently on what their Haverford experiences meant to them, especially in later life.
Dr. Phil D’Arrigo ’56, holder of Haverford’s single-game scoring record and first 1,000-point career scorer, introduced by Will Roth, was emotional as he talked about Haverford’s role in his life and career as a physician who has delivered more than 7,000 babies in New Jersey. Phil described how much it meant to him to have many members of his family on hand, some of them visiting Haverford for the first time. D’Arrigo was also a football and tennis star at Haverford.
Dr. Bill Erb ’62, presented by former teammate and Director of Athletics Greg Kannerstein ’63, reminisced about the days in which he helped lead Haverford to a Middle Atlantic Conference playoff berth, excelled in French after an unpromising start, and courted his coach’s sister-in-law who became his wife. Bill has recently retired from a distinguished surgical career in Delaware County, Pa.
David Stubbs ’77, joined previous honorees Coach Tony Zanin and Dick Voith ’77, in representing the fine hoop teams of 1974-77 which twice made the MAC finals. Stubbs, 1,461-point scorer and second-leading rebounder in the College’s history, after being introduced by Zanin, discussed the great teamwork of the squads on which he played and the enjoyment of being part of such a successful effort. (David later shared some of his inspiration at halftime with today’s Haverford men’s team which went on to a big victory over Johns Hopkins.) Stubbs is a corporate executive in Connecticut.
Beverly Ortega Babers ’84, one of the first three women to play four years of basketball at Haverford and a much-admired captain and point guard of the pioneer women’s teams, heard her former coach Julie Soreiro’s laudatory message from Julie’s current locale in Colorado as read by presenter John Douglas, Asst. AD at Haverford. Bev, now head of Human Resources for the Internal Revenue Service, told the crowd the amusing story of how, though her husband (Alonzo Babers, track double gold medalist in the 400 and 4x400 relay at Los Angeles in 1984) was an Olympic star, she retains athletic superiority in the household by virtue of having played college basketball!
