The Bruce-Mahoney Memorial Trophy
St. Ignatius College Preparatory and Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory are the participants in the oldest high school athletic rivalry west of the Mississippi River. The Bruce-Mahoney Memorial Trophy is symbolic of the rivalry. Established in 1947, it is awarded to the school which is victorious in league competition in two out of the three major sports each year: football, basketball, and baseball.
The Trophy is named in honor of Bill Bruce (S.I. 1935) and Jerry Mahoney (S.H. 1944), representing the graduates of St. Ignatius and of Sacred Heart who gave their lives for their country in World War II.
This ancient rivalry continues with the inclusion of the Bruce-Mahoney baseball game in The Dante Benedetti Baseball Classic.
