Happoldt, Richard

Richard “Hap” Happoldt ’65, co-chair of the Class of 1965 Reunion Committee, writes, “Starting back about 1992 or '93, Bill Jaeger '65, Harry Miller '65, Bill Terheyden '65, and Barry DeVita '65 got together for lunch one afternoon. That led to other lunches every now and then, and soon the list of attendees started to grow. In the late '90s, Barry formalized a roster with about 40 names on it, and lunches were held two or three times a year. Barry (who passed away in 2013) was the key to what is today one of the largest groups from Santa Clara that meets on a quarterly basis. Since Barry passed the mantle for this group in 2004, the roster has grown to 112 classmates, including 28 of the 'First Co-eds.' Our quarterly lunches in San Francisco continue to be our own social media and are highlighted every December with our Christmas lunch, which draws up to 65 people. One great aspect of having four lunches a year is that it makes it easy to schedule at least one lunch, especially for those living out of state. We're pretty sure this group is quite special and hope it will stir other classes to start something on their own—and we'll be happy to help. Looking forward to our upcoming 50th reunion in October and hoping for some eye-popping attendance numbers!"

Ogden, Bud

Bud Ogden ’69 was inducted into the seventh annual West Coast Conference 2015 Hall of Honor class. Ogden was a catalyst for the Santa Clara men's basketball team amidst one of its most successful runs in program history. He proudly represented the Broncos from 1966-1969 and led Santa Clara to two NCAA tournament appearances.  Ogden was named to the WCC All-Conference first team in 1968 and 1969, which followed a second team selection in 1967. Furthermore, Ogden was honored as an All-American selection in 1969 by the Helms Foundation and the USBWA as he led the Broncos to a No. 3 national ranking.

Ogden etched his name in the Santa Clara and WCC record books as one of the all-time greats. His 55 points against Pepperdine in 1967 still ranks tops amongst single game scoring performances at Santa Clara and is the third most all-time in a WCC game. Three other Santa Clara records he holds from that game include most points in a half, most points by a sophomore, and most field goals scored in a single game.  Ogden ranks 14th in Santa Clara history with 1,437 points scored and sits 10th all-time in rebounds with 694. Ogden's scoring average of 18.2 points per game ranks third all-time in Santa Clara history.
