Bishop Ireton Friends of Basketball (FOB) was originated in 2009 by Paul Gartlan ’77 Rick Mondloch ’77, Mike Bennett ’72 and Jay Barnwell (BI parent) for the purpose of augmenting our athletic budget.
Our club has raised over $150,000 in seven years helping our boys basketball program travel to Atlanta, GA (2010), purchase gear and apparel, fund trips to New York(twice) and North Carolina.
FOB has allowed us to purchase Krossover (a video editing system) and pay for a strength and conditioning coach all year round, all items that are not included in the school budget.
Through generous donations and a plethora of fundraisers we are able to remain competitive with all off court activities/advantages to compete and be successful in the WCAC, the best league in the country. Our mission is to provide our student-athletes with the best resources to become successful.
