The second annual Cupertino Classic, a friendly basketball game pitting priests against seminarians from the diocese, attracted a large crowd to Bishop Dwenger High School gymnasium on Monday, Dec. 28. With 1,817 in attendance, the selling of T-shirts and a freewill offering, funds from the event support the Seminarian Education Fund. For the second year, the priests defeated the seminarians, this year with a score of 52-39.
