Radford to name gym after former coach

Radford High School will name its gym after former boys basketball coach and athletic director Jim Alegre at the Rams' preseason tournament in December.

The gym's new court will be formally blessed Dec. 12, the opening night of the James Alegre Invitational, during Radford's game against Honokaa, Alegre's alma mater.

Alegre led Radford to nine Oahu Interscholastic Association championships, the first in 1962 and the last coming in 1989. Radford also won four state championships (1969, '71, '77 and '89) under Alegre's direction.

A dinner honoring Alegre will be held Dec. 11 from 6 to 10 p.m. at Hale Ikena at Fort Shafter. Tickets are $35 per person. Deadline for reservations is Nov. 23.
