The Bruce-Mahoney trophy is named in honor of Bill Bruce (Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, 1935) and Jerry Mahoney (Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, 1944); both men were outstanding athletes who host their lives serving their Country in World War II.
On St. Patrick's day in 1893 marked the start of this tradition when the two schools met in Central Park at Eighth and Market Streets for a rugby game. Over the years this rivalry has flourished as the schools competed in a variety of sports in three successive leagues and is the oldest high school athletic rivalry west of the Mississippi river. Established in 1947, the trophy is awarded to the school whichever school wins two out of three each year in football, boys basketball and baseball - the Bruce-Mahoney Memorial Trophy is symbolic of the SI/SH rivalry.
