Bears – past and present on the same courts


Spring means tennis, the Azalea Festival, and also the Jacoby Cup.  I’m excited to announce that the 10th annual Jacoby Cup will be Saturday May 16, 2015 at 9am.


As before, we will play doubles round robin followed by playoffs of the top 4 teams.  Each alumnus (or faculty member) will be paired with a current varsity tennis team member for 5 or 6 rounds of 4 service game pro-sets.  Final playoff rounds will be completed by 12noon or so.  We hope to begin at 9am, so please arrive early to warm up, meet your partner, and enjoy the breakfast food and drink which will be setup for you.


Please RSVP to me at your earliest convenience by email or phone (301-512-6292) to ensure a spot in the draw.


If you cannot play, you are of course welcome to come out to spend time with Mac, have some coffee, and watch some good tennis.  We hope to see as many of you as possible and, as always, Go Bears!

Alumni News


Bear Football Trax

The 1963 Football team won the IAC and Joe Bailey, L 1964, was the very talented quarterback. Many thought that he was going to UNC to be the signal caller there. Instead he was preparing to be an NFL executive with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, and former CEO of the Miami Dolphins. He used his managerial skills to be an executive with the International Olympic Committee. Joe returned to speak at the Nelson lecture. Here is a picture of Joe, his wife, Mac Jacoby (the only remaining faculty member still with Landon), other faculty members and current students. THAT’S A BEAR
