All former Assumption Girls Basketball players are invited to attend the Knights’ game vs. Alleman on Saturday, January 18. Please see the message below from Head Coach Katelyn McNamara:
Dear Lady Knight Basketball Alumnae,
You’re invited to help the Assumption Girls Basketball Program celebrate its tradition of excellence that you have helped create! Our basketball program has so much to be proud of, and we would like to take a moment to recognize our former Lady Knights.
On Saturday, January 18, the girls basketball program will play a game at home vs. Alleman High School. The varsity girls’ game will begin at 2:30pm with the JV girls kicking things off at 1:00pm.
At halftime of the varsity girls’ game, Lady Knight alumna Julie Fitzpatrick will speak on behalf of the program. Many of you are aware of the Girls Basketball Scholarship that has been created to financially support girls basketball players who are in good standing both on the court and in the classroom. This endowed scholarship, established in 2009, has supported many young women and their families who give so much to our Assumption community. Perhaps you were one of them! We are so grateful for the families who makes sacrifices so their daughters can receive a Catholic education, and we appreciate your support in helping relieve some of the financial burden. With your generosity, there will be many other young women who will have the opportunity to represent the girls’ basketball program with pride just as you have been able to do!
Our Future Lady Knights will also be at the game, so this is an extra-special event with former, current, and future Lady Knights in attendance! After the varsity game, there will be a gathering at Rookies Sports Bar in Davenport for all Lady Knight supporters and players – past, present, and future. We would love to visit with you! If you cannot make it to the game or the gathering, but would like to support the scholarship, please contact me or donate online at the link at the bottom of this letter.
We hope that you can mark your calendars for January 18, 2020. The girls in our program continue to make us proud every day, and I’m sure you will find that the pride and commitment these girls have to representing you and their Assumption community is strong as ever. There is no place like Assumption!
Go Knights! One in the Spirit,
Head Coach Katelyn McNamara
Wednesday, August 28, 2019, at Emeis Golf Course
This event honors Father Ken Martin, an avid golfer and special friend. Upon his death, he left $1,000 for his golfing buddies to have an outing, and they decided to honor “Father Kenny” by creating this annual event.
Through the years this outing has raised over $300,000 to benefit Scott County K-12 Catholic school students through emergency scholarship grants. Your donation will help children to continue their Catholic school education in spite of their family’s current financial crisis.
Please join us for this charity event! RESERVATIONS for golf and dinner, or dinner only, are available.
GOLF RESERVATIONS include golf, cart, prizes, refreshments on the course, and dinner at the Knights of Columbus.
FOR SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION contact Andy Craig at firstname.lastname@example.org or 563-326-5313 Ext. 225.
The 2019 Assumption Booster Club Golf Outing will be held on Friday, August 9, at Emeis Golf Course in Davenport. The annual golf outing is one of the Booster Club’s major fundraisers and helps the group continue to provide support to Assumption athletics.
This year’s event is dedicated to Sue and Jack McCabe. Sue and Jack were great advocates for Catholic education in Davenport. Jack was a 1943 graduate of St. Ambrose Academy. Jack and Sue’s five children are all proud graduates of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Grade School and Assumption High School: John McCabe ’66, Susie Collins Hentschel ’67, Bob McCabe ’70, Mike McCabe ’74, and Ann Lucas ’76.

Dear Assumption Family,
I want to personally thank everyone who supported April Knight, Re-U-Knighted…and it feels so good! Whether you attended the event, donated an item, were a corporate sponsor, or purchased a raffle ticket, we could not have made the evening a success without you. A special thanks to Bill Obenauf, Dan DeVries, and Nick Haut for their leadership during the live auction – their commitment and comedic timing proved just the right mix for a fruitful auction.
As the income generated at April Knight supports such a variety of areas (including tuition assistance, academic programming, technological upgrades, and capital improvement projects), I thought it was important to share that revenue from this year’s event was well over the five year average, and we saw an incredible 10% increase when compared to last year alone!
On behalf of our students, faculty, and staff, thank you – you are what truly what makes Assumption special. Through your dedication and commitment it possible for us to continue providing an excellent Catholic education to our students.
Andy Craig, President
