The Hubbard Local Schools Athletic Department has organized a special event in concert with Cardinal Mooney High School next week in memory of two alumni who died in a traffic accident.

A pregame ceremony will be conducted to remember Jillian Marian and Mark Pelini before the junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams from Cardinal Mooney High School and Hubbard High School will play against each other at the Hubbard High School gymnasium on Monday, Oct. 10, 2022.

Jillian Marian was a high school math teacher at Hubbard High School along with a youth basketball and volleyball coach at St Charles Elementary. 

Mark Pelini was a Cardinal Mooney High School alumnus and current football coach at Mooney. 

Both died in a traffic crash in Indiana last weekend.

A post on the Hubbard High School Facebook page says their losses have impacted many people, including the school communities at Hubbard, Cardinal Mooney, and St. Charles.

There will be no charge for the event dubbed “More Than a Game”, being held in their memory.
